SPEED TECHNOLOGIES GETS READY TO RUMBLE IN THE TSCO VEGAS TO RENO RACE
-Northern Nevada's Largest off Road Team to Race in the "Longest Off-Road Race in America"

Reno, NV (August 19, 2009) -- Speed Technologies, one of the largest and foremost off-road race teams in the world, is gearing up for three days of grueling off road racing in the 2009 TSCO Vegas to Reno race totaling over 1000 miles. If there's one race that gets the Speed Technologies team fired up and ready for action it's the TSCO Vegas to Reno Race. The team previously took home a third place finish in the race and they're ready to tackle their own backyard -- the Nevada wilderness.

"We're always excited about driving home," said team owner and driver John Harrah. "Nothing would mean more to the team than a win in our home state -- we've been working hard all year towards that and I have a strong feeling this will be our race."

The formidable teams plans to race their Class 1 2008 Jimco Champion (1528) with both Chuck Dempsey and John Herder behind the wheel and co-drivers Joe Weining and John Armos. Both John and Chuck have long careers in off-road racing including numerous Baja wins including the 500 and 1000.

The three day race, totaling 330 miles each day, begins on Thursday, August 20th in Beatty, NV and concludes on Saturday, August 22nd in Dayton, NV. Over 300 different teams compete in the race with over 1000 competitors from across the world.

"This is a tough race," said Speed Technologies driver Chuck Dempsey. "It's a lot of miles and a lot of rough terrain, but I feel as if we are prepared for it and ready to tackle the brutal Nevada Wilderness."
