After months of preparation, rebuilding the Spectruss RZR and the long 2,000-mile journey to Las Vegas, the results are in from the brutal test out in the dessert from last Sunday’s Mint 400.

Sam started just after 6:45 a.m.,  59th on the grid. After 3 nearly sleepless nights, Sam and his crew had the car running perfectly. After lap 1, Sam and his co-driver, Cory Wilson, pitted and replaced the left rear drive axle, due to a malfunction.

After an underpowered first lap due to drive train issues on the left side, Sam started lap 2 at around 9:35 a.m. At around mile marker 33, Sam entered a rough part of terrain which sent the car airborne, bucking the car sideways and rolling it over at around 60 mph.

Sam and Cory and the Spectruss Team completed around 130 miles of the mint 400 before an official DNF (did not finish) was declared at around 10 a.m.
