Ryan Piplic won the UTV Turbo class at Best in the Desert’s All Terrain Concepts UTV Legends Championship, held September 11 in Laughlin, Nevada.
What Piplic called a “crazy hot weekend” began with a third-place qualifying finish which allowed him to start the main race on the third row. “For my race day I had a game plan to keep my Pro XP together in the 110+ degree weather. I was going to go fast enough to keep temps low and save the car. After taking over the lead at the end of the 3rd lap, I was able to keep my plan in place to the end of the race. I pushed on the last lap to take it to the finish line and get the checkered flag and get the win! Thanks to everyone who make this possible,” Piplic said after the race in an Instagram post. He finished the 17-mile event in 2:19:35.431.
Piplic chose CST’s Apache tires to take him first across the finish line. Designed for desert racing, the Apache features a steel-belted radial design to flex while providing puncture protection, as well as outstanding grip and reliable cornering.
