Brenthel Industries top wheelman, Kyle Jergensen, worked his magic for the Best In The Desert(BITD) Bluewater Desert Challenge in Parker, Arizona, to complete the 2020 series in a big way. Jergensen piloted the #6173 Spec Truck to the pole with the top qualifying time, and then the overall division victory, with a 1st place finish on Saturday and a 2nd place finish on Sunday. This race win and excellent performance pushed Kyle into the points lead to capture the 6100 Championship as well as the Triple Crown Bonus. Additionally, Jergensen was behind the Brenthel Industries #127 Trick Truck wheel to score the quickest qualifier above all other competitors with a 4 Minute, 58.975 Seconds times during the session and 60.206 MPH average speed.
The final round of the Best In The Desert season, the Bluewater Desert Challenge hosted along the Colorado River’s shores returned to Parker, Arizona, after a three-year hiatus. This two-day competition featured separate races, taking place on Saturday and Sunday, a racer’s favorite. Furthermore, this would also count as the final round of the $67,000 MAXXIS Tire Triple Crown.
BITD Officials charted a riveting 22 Mile Course and attracted big entries and large car counts. 26 Spec Trucks entered into the division, but in the end, Kyle Jergensen and the Brenthel Industries Gen 3 Spec Truck was the winning combination.
“The Gen 3 6100 was flawless all weekend and never skipped a beat all season! We locked down the 6100 win for the weekend, the 6100 Class Championship, and the Triple Crown Championship. Thanks to Jonathan & Jordan Brenthel for giving me the opportunity this season, the Brenthel Team is a great group of people and these trucks they are building are tough and fast!” – Kyle Jergensen
