Lompoc, CA - After suffering the loss of their engine, just a few miles afterthe start of the season opening ‘Parker 425’in February, the Dixon Bros. Racing #7101 FordRanger has been repaired and is ready to take on Best in the Desert’s ‘Terrible’s 250 at Primm, April 18-20 in Primm, Nevada. After finishing every race since the end of the 1999 season, the Dixon Bros. luck finally ran out at this year’s ‘Parker 425’ , when a rock kicked up by anothertruck, early in the race, got by all the safeguards and put a small hole in their radiator. Because the hole was a small one, the damage to the cooling system was not immediately apparent to driver,Aaron Dixon, who did not notice the gradually increasing temperature of the engine until it was too late. Although the temperature gauge seemed near the normal operating range, the truck startedrunning erratically and began to seize up as they pulled over to survey the problem, ending theirrace after only 30 miles. Within a week, Ford had a new engine delivered to Dixon Bros. Racing, in Lompoc, Ca. and not long thereafter the Ford Ranger was dialed in and ready to begin anew finishing streak beginning with the ‘Terrible’s 250 at Primm’, this weekend.

Best in the Desert Racing Association recently announced a record entry of 225 cars and trucks, reflecting a 25% increase in entries over last year’s ‘Terrible’s Town 250’, replaced thisseason by the ‘Terrible’s 250 at Primm’as the second event on the BitD Silver State Series racingschedule. Billed as the “Richest Off-Road Race in Nevada,” the Terrible’s 250 will be hosted by the Herbst family and Buffalo Bill’s Hotel & Casino. The course will start & finish in Primm, Nevada and will cover three 84 mile loops for a combined distance of 252 miles. In the interest of time, some slower classes will only race two laps. The entries will be split into two separate categories on Saturday with the production and limited classes (Group 1) starting at 5:30am andthe unlimited class vehicles (Group 2) scheduled to begin their race at 1:00pm. As part of the Group 1 race, the Dixon Bros. Racing Ford Ranger Pickup (#7101) will start fourth in Class 7100 about 6:00am on Saturday morning.

Aaron will drive all three laps with co-rider, Ed Ramirez in the navigator’s seat. Roundingout the team, Jim Dixon (father) and Phil Ramirez, will be on hand to help out in the pits with additional help from Ed and Phil’s parents, Manny and Andrea Ramirez. Dixon Bros Racing hasbeen a family effort since the beginning and as a team have won three class points championships.

Dixon Bros. Racing is ready for this event and the team is looking forward to a good finish in Primm
