"Henge Racing is excited to join the THR/General Tire Unlimited Class 1500 Team. Our mission is to be a major contender for the BITD Championship. Our relationship with THR has been fantastic as part of their bike team in Baja, so this move made a lot of sense for us. We are excited and grateful to THR and General Tire for affording us this opportunity.”

Team owner Rob Sims shares Steve’s enthusiasm. "Having Henge as part of our car team is truly exciting. He brings awesome off-road experience to our program and he wants to win. As most know, he has played a vital role in our efforts down in Baja as a valued member of our bike team. His attitude is great; he is just a likable guy. We couldn’t do this without the support of our sponsors who have stood by us for the 2013 race season."

Nearly 90 Trick Trucks and Class 1500 cars will qualify on a specially designed 5-mile course for a shot at the first overall starting position and the coveted $1,000 Team Ford “Pole Award”. Along with the bonus cash, the top qualifier gets to start dust free as he tackles the challenging Arizona desert. With the huge field of unlimited cars and trucks, the fastest qualifiers will definitely have an advantage for a chance at the first overall finish.

Directly following the Time Trials, participants will parade their vehicles to the center of town for the “Downtown Parker Experience”.

They’ll also have the opportunity to check out the latest off-road and racing accessories from the industry’s top manufacturers.

The 2013 edition of the Blue Water Resort & Casino Parker “425” officially gets underway on Saturday morning, February 2nd, as the green flag drops just past 7:00 AM for the first car or truck on California Ave., right in the middle of downtown Parker.
