Dixon Bros. Plan To Add To Points Lead At ‘LAS VEGAS 300’

    Lompoc, CA - October 2, 2007: With only two races remaining in Best in the Desert Racing Association’ Silver State Series, Dixon Bros. Racing prepares to leave for the upcoming BitD ‘Las Vegas 300’, Oct. 4-6, with a lead of 79 points in the race for the Class 7100 year-end points championship. This is not an insurmountable lead for their competitors, by any means, but finishing the next two races will clinch the 2007 Class 7100 Silver State Series Crown for the Dixon Bros. Ford Ranger, in it’s first year of competition. Of course, there’s nothing simple about finishing any off-road race where, often, less than 1/2 of the starters are able to reach the finish line but the fact that the
Dixon Bros. have finished every race since the 1999 season would seem to make them the odds on favorite. 


Dixon Bros Move Into Class 7100 Points Lead After Vegas To Reno

Reno, NV - August 25, 2007: The ‘Vegas to Reno’ off-road race is always tough and this year was no exception with less than ½ of the entries able to make it to the finish line in Best in the Desert Racing Association’s 570-mile race across Nevada. Aaron Dixon & Ed Ramirez started the race in the #7177 Dixon Bros. Racing Class 7100 Ford Ranger and ran without problems, swapping positions in the top three, until taking the lead just before the driver change in Goldfield (race mile 186). Ian Dixon and navigator Phil Ramirez had only been in the truck for five miles when the engine began cutting in and out before stopping dead on the course a few miles north of Goldfield. After a few moments of probing, Ian and Phil were able to get the truck running again but it continued to sputter whenever they hit a bump. “We figured it was a loose wire or electrical component,” said Ian. “ This became clear when we were on the dry lake bed at full speed without an engine miss but, the rougher the course became, the more the engine stumble.” They called the crew and arranged to pit in Tonopah (RM 226) for repairs. Aaron found a broken connection in the computer relay and once it was fixed the #7177 Dixon Bros Ford Ranger was back on the course and moving through race traffic again.

Dixon Bros. Finish Second In New Class 7100 Ford Ranger At “Parker 425”

Parker, AZ - January 4, 2007: Aaron and Ian Dixon overcame a number of problems in the new Dixon Bros. Class 7100 Ford Ranger (#7177) to finish second in Best in the Desert Racing Association’s (BitD) 2007 season opener, the Blue Water Resort and Casino ‘Parker 425’, held this last weekend in Parker, Arizona. The longest running off-road race in the United States, the ‘Parker 425’ has always had a reputation as a tough and demanding event, but this year only the strong would survive the silt and bedrock. Unusually dry conditions and the lack of wind on raceday contributed to immense dust clouds which enveloped the course like a relentless thick fog. Of the 238 entries that started this year’s race only 103 were able to find their way to the finish line, at the Blue Water Resort and Casino, on the banks of the Colorado river.

The 2004 Vegas to Reno proved to be a challenging race

The 2004 Vegas to Reno proved to be a challenging race for the Dixon Bros. Racing team. The #7301 Ford Ranger Edge ran strong for the first 2/3rds of the race, but a bent axle cost the team 3 hours of down time at pit 12, resulting in a 5th place finish. Despite the rough finish, Dixon Bros. Racing remains in the lead for the Best in the Desert class 7300 points championship.

Dixon Bros. Racing leads the BITD class 7300

Dixon Bros. Racing leads the BITD class 7300 for the points championship after a 2nd place finish at the Pahrump, NV, Terribles Town 250. Driver Aaron Dixon led the pack of nine class 7300 trucks most of the Saturday race, after earning a first place start in the qualifying session on Friday. A 3 minute tire change towards the end of the race was the difference between the Dixon's and the winning #7310 Ford Ranger Edge 4wd of Rob MacCachran.
