The Bluewater Resort & Casino Parker 425 can trace its roots back to 1972 in the early days of off-road desert racing. Best In The Desert, Inc. (BITD), owned and operated by Casey Folks, has kept this legendary race alive. The 2015 Parker 425 hosted racers ranging from UTV sportsman classes, to pro classes open to vehicles similar to SCORE Trophy Trucks. The annual race was held on February 6th, 2015 and claims to be the only off-road race in America to start on the street.

Dr. Glass is no stranger to racing the BITD series, or to winning. Glass has accrued 7 class championships, 5 of which were consecutive wins. Macrae races with his two sons Robby and Walker, named after famous off-road racers. For the 2015 Bluewater Resort & Casino Parker 425, Macrae teamed up with legendary racer Curt LeDuc to share driving duties of the KC HiLites/General Tire Ford 150.
