Corry Weller will race Parker 425 2011 First Time In A Truck!

Corry Weller to Race a Truck in the BITD Parker 425

Chandler, AZ (2/3/11) While Corry Weller and Weller Racing have been synonymous with UTV racing throughout the past few years, the Weller name will soon become a familiarity in the desert racing scene as well, since Corry Weller is set to help pilot a brand new BBQ Island Trophylite truck during the 2011 Best in the Desert (BITD) race season.

Owned by Mike West, who is an avid off-road enthusiast as well as a successful business owner (, this is the first Trophylite truck built that is powered by a Ford 2.0 liter Zetec motor. In addition, it will also be the first Trophylite to run the Molten Orange, Ford Raptor inspired body that is sure to stand out and demand attention during its debut outing at the BITD Parker 425, which is being held in Arizona this weekend.

“I can’t thank Mike enough for giving me this amazing opportunity” says an excited Weller. “I have raced a couple of desert races in my Rhino, but have never had the chance to try one in a truck. I consider something like this to be a great cross-training experience, and I really respect the BITD series as well as what Greg Foutz has done with the Trophylite class as a whole. I’m really looking forward to getting behind the wheel!”

In addition to participating in the 2011 BITD Series, Weller will, once again, be pursuing a championship in the highly competitive SR1 UTV class for the Lucas Oil Off-Road Race Series.
