Offroad Racer and Champion Sara Price made her first Trophy Truck in the Chattanooga Whiskey Geiser Brothers Truck at the 2020 Mint 400.
Following a successful SCORE International campaign in the Trophy Truck Spec Class in 2019, with RPM Racing, Price made history by becoming the first ever woman to win the Championship.
“The Mint 400 is America’s most legendary Offroad Event in History! To be making my debut into the Chattanooga Whiskey Unlimited truck, running my childhood racing number 78, while racing alongside legends themselves and the best in our sport is something very monumental to me. Kellon Walch will be navigating for me and he himself is a very accomplished racer and one of the best navigators of all time. Our Team and Geiser Brothers will be pitting for us and I believe We have the total package to make history here and we will do our best to do just that!” said Price.
Sara paired up with world renown Navigator and Racer Kellon Walch. Walch brings years of experience to the table with several participations to Dakar, multiple championships in both offroad motorcycle and trucks and has navigated for Robby Gordon, Justin Matney, BJ Baldwin and AJ Jones.
‘’I was super stoked to get into the truck with Sara. I can’t say that about a lot of drivers. I know she has serious Moto/Bike skills that directly translate her into a smooth and smart truck driver and someone that I can trust! I’ve pre ran a lot of miles with her in Mexico and really appreciate her demeanor and love for the sport. I’ve also raced against her and know she is a fierce competitor! I think we will get along just fine in the truck! Looking forward to what kind of race we can put together!!!’’ said Walch
