The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 entered the Best in the Desert’s General Tire Vegas to Reno race for the third year. Chad Hall of Hall Racing has piloted the truck for 3,275 miles over the course of 11 Best in the Desert Races and will continue to run it.
From the time the Colorado ZR2 debuted in the series, 434 vehicles have raced in all 11 competitions. Of all these vehicles, only four completed each race, including the Colorado ZR2. The races have not only shown the durability of the Colorado ZR2 but have also helped Chevrolet develop better off-roading parts.
The Colorado ZR2 has made improvements, evident by its racing time. In its’ first Vegas to Reno race in 2017, the truck finished with a total time of 18 hours and 51 minutes. In the 2018 Vegas to Reno, the truck was able to finish in 14 hours and 34.5 minutes the next year.
Recently, the truck driven by Hall received additional upgrades, including American Expedition Vehicles Colorado accessories and ZR2 Bison skid plates on the transmission, differential, and engine. For better visibility in the dark, the truck also received more HID KC HiLiTES.
