Team Hummer, one of off-road racing's most successful teams looks to continue their 13-race streak of placing a Hummer on the podium as it heads into the TSCO Vegas to Reno race, 25th August, 2006 -- a streak that began with the Team Hummer H2's class victory at the same race in 2004.
Team Hummer owner Rod Hall, and his sons Josh and Chad will enter their stock-class H1 Alpha, H2 and H3 in this year's race -- the 10th Anniversary running of the Best in the Desert Racing Association's "Vegas to Reno" - the longest off-road race in the United States.
"The H1, H2 and H3 are by far the most capable off-road vehicles I've ever driven," said Rod Hall. "Between the vehicles' natural off-road capabilities and the support of the Team Hummer crew, I expect Vegas to Reno to be another successful race for Team Hummer."
The Team Hummer H3 is piloted by Rod Hall and was built by GM Engineering. Introduced at the 2005 Vegas to Reno, Rod and the H3 earned a second-place class finish in the vehicle's inaugural race. Since then, the H3 has gone undefeated in the mini stock class in every race entered, including the 2005 Baja 1000 and 2006 Baja 500.
The Team Hummer H2, piloted by Josh Hall and also built by GM Engineering, is the 2004 and 2005 Vegas to Reno full-size SUV stock class defending champion. Hall and the H2 were Best in the Desert full-size SUV stock class champions in 2005, following an eight-race winning streak.
Team Hummer's H1 Alpha, the team's newest addition, is piloted by six-time Baja 1000 winner, Chad Hall. The H1, introduced at the 2006 Terrible's Town 250, is expected to be a strong challenger in the race's full-size truck stock class.
