- “Ballistic” BJ Baldwin wins Best in The Desert Trick Truck championship.
- Macrae Glass wins Best In The Desert Class 8 championship on General Tires.
Fort Mill, SC – December 7, 2011. “Ballistic” BJ Baldwin entered the final race of the 2011 Best In The Desert (BITD) Series with one goal, to win the Trick Truck championship. And he did just that. Following a strenuous Henderson 250 full of ups and downs, Baldwin edged out Steve Strobel for the championship. The Trick Truck championship marks his second in as many years.
Dr. Macrae Glass walked away with the 2011 BITD Class 8 championship, marking back-to-back championships for this Team GT driver as well.
“Everyone at General Tire is excited about our second straight Trick Truck championship with Baldwin Motorsports,” said Travis Roffler, director of marketing, General Tire. “We were also fortunate enough to have Macrae Glass capture the Class 8 championship which is fantastic. We’re extremely proud to have General Tire on top of the podium for two straight years in two different classes.”
