Piplic Wins Both Best in the Desert and Legacy UTV Pro Turbo Championships

Piplic Wins Both Best in the Desert and Legacy UTV Pro Turbo Championships


In their entire careers, racers rarely enjoy a weekend like the one Ryan Piplic just had, clinching championships in two major series over the course of just a few days. Piplic won the UTV Pro Turbo classes for 2021 in both Best in the Desert and the Legacy Racing Association series.


At the final Best in the Desert race of the season, the Cal City Desert Challenge, Piplic sealed his lock on the title by taking third place for the race, with a third place on Day 1 and first place on Day 2. He made other trips to the Best in the Desert podium during the season as well, taking a victory in the UTV Legends Championship and second place in the Silver State 300. Throughout the year, Piplic trusted CST’s Apache tires to deliver championship-winning performance. “The CST Apache is the best tire out there to give you everything you need to make it to the finish with zero issues,” he said after the Silver State 300.


Piplic earned 586 points in the Legacy series, eight more than the next rider. Both Legacy and Best in the Desert’s final races were scheduled for the same weekend, so racer Larry Heidler ran the Legacy race in Piplic’s place, clinching his title.


“We’re so proud of Ryan, and we’re thrilled that he chose our tires to race to achieve these amazing results, said Rick Emmert, sales manager for CST’s Specialty Tire Division.
