“Laughlin was a very unique race,” said Jefferies. “We had two days of racing. Each day consisted of eight laps on the 6.25-mile course on harsh terrain.”

On Sunday the rain came down most of the day, which made the course extremely muddy. “I can’t complain, there was no dust all weekend,” said Jefferies. “We got third which is really good because our truck is suited for the technical terrain in Baja. Laughlin is a great race and we didn’t have any problems.”

Jefferies No. 22 Trophy Truck has independent rear suspension with one wheel drive, which makes the big corners at Laughlin difficult. Consistent air flow, low maintenance, durability and superior filtration are critical in desert races. The K&N trophy truck uses a K&N designed air induction system as well as a K&N performance oil filter which provides Jefferies with the power and protection he requires for racing.

Jefferies next race is the San Felipe 250 at Baja in March.
