The Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic was a UTV night race on October 10, 2019. Marine retiree Curt Caruso and Marine veteran/amputee Josh Rottkamp were the driver & co-pilot/navigator team for this event. Keene Powersports (https://keenepowersports.com) did all the vehicle modifications and prep work for this race; Team Keene also provided our Pit service.
The rig ran well, until…the team got a little too much air off a jump in the last 20 miles which resulted in a broken rear sway-bar mount and blown rear shock. They had to throttle way back in order to get it to the finish line, but the team did get the finish.
They were the first CanAm to finish in their Pro class. It was a rough course in which most teams did not finish.
