Riot In The Desert – Off-road Racing, Man And The Elements

The ultimate test of man and his machine against the elements, Riot Racing looks at appeal to the masses. Combining years of desert racing experience with a handpicked team and the latest technology, Kevin Lyons and Riot Racing are quickly building a name for themselves. Established in 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Riot Racing is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with. In 2013 Kevin Lyons, originally from Grande Prairie, Alberta was brought on to drive the Trophy Truck and Trick Truck. Their fan base is expanding as they take the race action out of the desert and put it onto screens across the globe. Team Riot Racing strives to reach an ever increasing audience track-side as well as through the world-wide web. They are pushing their monstrous machines to their limit with new energy and innovation while thundering into the dust at 120mph, making breathtaking jumps in 5,000 pounds of chromoly steel.

The premier class of Off-Road Racing were a long time in the making. In 1993 SCORE International made the announcement of the new class for unlimited trucks, the Trophy Truck class. From here the class had progressed into the fastest Off-Road Racing Vehicles, and it did so quickly. Fast forward to 2014 and you will find a race truck that can make it through the toughest terrain there is to offer. Over 40 trucks can and will stage to compete against one another to see who has the fastest, strongest and most competitive Trophy Truck out there. From unlimited horse power to unlimited travel, these beasts are made for taking their drivers over 115mph in open desert.
