Race's end saw the bright Team Herbst Trophy Truck streak across the finish line first. "It was a memorable win for us to say the least, and certainly we could never have won without such great pit support and incredible prep work by Mike Smith to get our Ford F-150 race-ready," commented an exhausted Ed Herbst. Ed shared driving duties with his brother Tim in their Trophy Truck. The team had added an experimental set of 39-inch BFGoodrich "Project" T/As and stated that, "They were the final difference." Troy Herbst, who contended his truggy in Class 1, finished Third in class and Sixth overall.
Racers had another reason to brave the Henderson heat - cash. Contingency monies totaled $500,000, making Henderson "The World's Richest Off-Road Race." Team Herbst co-sponsored the race through Herbst Gaming.
If you're thinking of racing in, or watching, the SCORE Henderson's Terrible 250 next year, you should. The hottest race of the year was accompanied by some of the year's hottest racing action. For those with the need to chill, the cool waters of Lake Mead are nearby.
