The Glass Chiropractic Racing Team took on the 210 event. Macrae Glass and co-drivers Kevin Davis and Michael DeHaas drove their Ford F-150 in the Class 8000. “Kevin and I started the race and we drew the number one starting spot for the event,” said Glass. “The race was a 2x2 start and our neighbors got the jump off the line.”

Three or four turns later the Glass Chiropractic made its move. “The first 20 miles were very dusty,” said Glass. “We carefully picked off 4-5 additional Pro Trucks. We were thankful for the giant K&N filter protecting the bullet under the hood.”

As they approached the 32 mile market, the dust began to thin out and Glass was able to make some time. They passed giant sand whoops around the 52 mile mark and their lead continued to grow.

“Lap two was a lot easier,” said Glass. “We stopped at pit one, the half way point for 44 gallons of fuel.” DeHaas took over as co-driver and they continued on the course without any problems. “As the miles clicked off, I was really enjoying our new truck and becoming more confident in its performance,” said Glass. “We cleared pit two with nothing to slow us down. We had a sizable lead at this point.”

The course had deteriorated by lap three. There were huge rocks, ruts and berms in every corner. “The whoops got even bigger than before and the broken cars and trucks were everywhere,” said Glass. “We saw a Class 1 truck literally stuck half way up a Joshua tree.” The bumps continued to get bigger and the team was looking forward to the checkers. They crossed the line and were first in Class 8000 and 23rd overall.

The Glass Chiropractic Racing Team will head to The Vegas to Reno 1000 in August.
