Lompoc, CA - With only two races remaining in Best in the Desert Racing Association’s Silver State Series, Dixon Bros. Racing prepares to leave for the upcoming BitD\Bilek Racing ‘Silver State 300’, Sept. 26-28, in an attempt to win their third consecutive event in Class 7100. The Dixon Bros. #7101 Ford Ranger was sidelined shortly after the start of the season opening ‘Parker 425’ when a rock kicked up by race traffic damaged the radiator and resulted in a blown motor forcing them to retire the truck less than 30 miles into the race. Convincing wins at both the ‘Terrible’s 250’, in April and the ‘Vegas to Reno’, in August, have moved the Dixon Bros. Ford into second place in the 2008 Class 7100 points standings, 34 points behind the #7114 Ford. This is not an insurmountable lead for the Dixon Bros. to overcome but finishing well in the next two races combined with some bad luck for the leader will be necessary if the Dixon Bros. are to repeat as Class 7100 points champions.

The ‘Silver State 300’ will start in Alamo, Nevada at 9:30 AM on Saturday, September 6th, but the #7101 Dixon Bros. Ford Ranger probably won’t get off the line until about 10:45. The course consists of a single 294 mile loop through the mountains and valleys of eastern Nevada, to the finish a few miles from Mesquite, Nevada. Although we haven’t raced through this area in a number of years, this particular stretch of desert ranges in elevation from about 3000’ in Alamo to 7200’ outside of Caliente and is well known for it’s deep silty sand washes and rocky, narrow mountain trails. Flat tires, clogged radiators and broken suspension parts will be common occurrences at the ‘Silver State 300’ and with only 12 hours to finish the race, there is not much extra time to react to serious trouble along the way.

In spite of the fact that the Dixon Bros. spent an hour and a half repairing a broken steering assembly at the ‘Vegas to Reno’, they managed to reel in the competition for the win after almost 13 1/2 hours on the course, moving them into second place in the run for the class points championship. Once they got the truck back to their Lompoc, California shop Aaron gave the #7101 Ford Ranger a thorough race prep, replacing the rear differential and rebuilding the suspension in preparation for the ‘Silver State 300’. The truck was in surprisingly good condition considering how challenging the ‘Vegas to Reno’ had been and the Dixon Bros. consider the truck “race-ready” as they prepare to leave for the Bilek Racing ‘Silver State 300’ in Mesquite, Nevada.

Aaron Dixon will drive the entire 294 miles of the ‘Silver State 300’ with Ed Ramirez in the second seat as navigator. He is looking forward to getting behind the wheel of Dixon Bros. Racing’s #7101 Ford Ranger and is scheduled to start third in Class 7100.
