Sara Price To Drive RPM Offroad Trick Truck In Laughlin Desert Classic

May 2017 Racing

Laughlin, NV - Sara Price returns to the Best In The Desert Laughlin Desert Classic May 13-14. The 24-year old California native will be stepping up to drive the RPM Offroad Trick Truck built by Geiser Brothers, with long-time co-pilot Erica Sacks taking the right seat.

The team spent the past week gaining valuable seat time and getting fitted in the No. 8108 truck at Geiser Brothers Design and Development in Phoenix, AZ. “I was honored to get the invitation from RPM's Justin Matney and Clyde Stacy,” Price said. “They are known as one of the most elite off-road teams, and this is personal dream and once in a lifetime opportunity.”

Price adapted quickly and felt comfortable to push the truck at a solid pace. After coming off this past year with Stadium Super Trucks under her belt, she noted the differences in the demands and performance. She said, "The speed is so much faster and you have to be completely prepared and on your game. It is a very well prepared truck and we have an incredible team behind us, so I’m ready for the upcoming weekend of racing."

Sacks, also a California native, has spent most her life in an off-road car, co-piloting in many different vehicles from desert racing and rally car to grand prix and rock crawling. She has been Price's navigator from the beginning of her four-wheel racing career.

Truck sponsors: RPM Offroad, BFG, Rigid Industries, King Shocks, Impact Safety, BDS Suspension, KMC Wheels, Par Ventures Inc, Geiser Bros, Dougans Engines, Rancho Drivetrain, Pin MFG.

In 2015, Price and Sacks made history as the first American UTV team to compete in the Rally Aicha Des Gazelles in the Sahara Desert of Africa, as well has competing in the 2016 and 2017 UTV King Of the Hammers.
