He drives a modified Toyota truck that is a desert vehicle. It also works well on short dirt courses and ovals. “I think one of the reasons we’re first in the series is because of my experience with desert racing,” said Vance. “In the open desert, any obstacle can come at you out of nowhere. You also have to be on the lookout for everything that can cause you to roll over or wreck. A race on a track like Perris Auto Speedway is controlled chaos. Desert racing has definitely given me an edge.”

Vance drives in the 1450 class when he competes in the M4SX Series. Qualifying at every event begins with a random drawing for position on the track. There are also heat races which lead to eliminations. In the final, eight trucks compete for the title.

In Round Five of the M4SX Series, Vance started in the rear of the pack during qualifying. He passed 5 drivers on the first lap. Vance and his competitors traded the lead position back and forth from one corner to the next in front of a full stadium. In the end, Vance took the win by a few trucks lengths.

Vance uses K&N air filters. “K&N protects my engine from the harsh environments in both desert racing and short track racing,” he said. “I also get additional performance and better filtration.”

Vance has won 5 desert championships and is expected to win the M4SX series. He is dominating the series with points. His next race will be at Perris Auto Speedway in July.
