In this new episode we share a visit with the queen of the Desert Assassins herself Heidi Steele. She talks about everything from getting her start in a sportsman class buggy back in 2005 to teaming up with Jessica McMillin in 2013 to become the first all-female Trophy Truck team. Although a big crash in late 2014 that included a concussion slowed her down this past season, she was still there flogging the #14 TT in the 2015 SCORE Baja 1000! Balancing family and racing – and keeping track of her superstar hubby Cameron.
The first Mexican national racer to claim the title, youth was served in an unprecedented way as RPM Racing’s Carlos ‘Apdaly’ Lopez, just 20 of Tecate, Mexico, has won the overall and SCORE Trophy Truck point championship of the five-race 2015 SCORE World Desert Championship.
In an amazing accomplishment, Mexico’s Lopez, a second generation desert racer, drove the No. 5 RPM Racing Chevy Rally truck to the top of the 2015 SCORE World Desert Championship. Not only is Lopez the youngest SCORE overall point champion in the storied history of the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Organization, he is the first racer from outside of the United States to claim the prestigious title.
Starting the season with a second in the 29th Bud Light SCORE San Felipe 250 and clinching the title with a second-place finish in the season-ending 48th Bud Light SCORE Baja 1000, Lopez achieved the monumental feat with 404 season points. In between his bookend podium finishes, Lopez was fourth in the inaugural Bud Light SCORE Baja Sur 500 in April, made history by winning the 47th SCORE Baja 500 in June and had engine failure and did not finish in September’s Rigid Industries SCORE Imperial Valley 250.
Lopez entered the season-ending SCORE Baja 1000 in third place in points but his rivals were third and sixth in Ensenada, Mexico and when the best four of five results were calculated SCORE’s top Young Gun had made magnificent history for himself and RPM Racing, which is based in Bristol, Tenn.
Assisting Lopez with some of the driving in 2015 was his father, Juan C. Lopez, also of Tecate, Mexico along with the continuing support of RPM Racing co-owner and co-driver Clyde Stacy, Bristol, Va.
The 2015 SCORE World Desert Championship has been one amazing season for Clyde Stacy and RPM Off-Road. The successes of Apdaly Lopez, Lalo Laguna, Justin Matney and Derek Fletcher have been nothing short of fantastic! Congratulations to the entire RPM team for the podium finishes, the wins and the overall championship!
