Ford F-150 EcoBoost Wins Vegas to Reno Off-Road Race

Randy Merritt and the team at Mongo Racing won last month's 549-mile long "Vegas to Reno" off-road race in the No. 8181 EcoBoost Ford F-150. The Best in the Desert racing series changed its rulebook to allow Ford's EcoBoost twin-turbo six-cylinder to compete in stock classes 8000 and 8100, which had been limited to naturally aspirated V-8 gas engines or turbo-diesels. Merritt and his co-pilot, Tracy Rubio, competed in Class 8100 for stock full-size trucks, finishing with a time of 14 hours, 5 minutes.
