The King Shocks Trophy Truck team of Juan Carlos Lopez and Clyde Stacy has been making huge strides together. Running up front for several races now, the team broke-out at the Code, Mexicana Logistics 300. In an awesome display of what they are capable of, Juan Carlos Lopez started eighth off the line and quickly passed the first seven starters on the first lap. As the laps went by, he gained an even larger lead over the rest of the field.
At the finish, Juan Carlos had scorched the others finishing over ten minutes ahead of the second place Trophy Truck of event sponsor Gus and Tavo Vildosola. Swamped by media and fans after the race a jubilant Juan Carlos commented on how rough the course was and thanked Clyde and the team for giving him a great truck that was problem free all day. Clyde was quick to credit the driving skills of Juan at the finish stating “What a great driver” and adding that they will be going after the win again at the upcoming Baja 1000 in November.
Equally impressive was the performance put in by Roberto Romo and Juan Mayoral who dominated the 1/2-1600 class winning by a margin of 11 minutes and 34 seconds. “We started ninth and quickly went to the front,” said Roberto Romo, “we had a huge lead, over 20 minutes but our air-filter got clogged with silt on the last lap slowing down the motor. We still managed to win easily and beat all the class 12 cars too!Our car works really good in the whoops thanks to our King shocks. ” Romo, Mayoral and Cody Robinson will be teaming up at the Baja 1000 looking for another overwhelming victory.
