Parker, Arizona.

2020 will be remembered as a strange year, but in the end racing persevered.

Over the Oct 24-25 weekend, 334 teams returned to Parker Arizona, to challenge and clinch the BITD season titles at the Blue Water Desert Challenge.

The two-day format on a fast and short 22.8 mile course was a perfect way to cap the BITD season. Winners were determined by fastest combined times over the two days.

After finishing day 1 on top, Justin Lofton in Trophy Truck #41 was able to hang on for the overall win on day 2 despite a flat tire partway through the race.
