Derek Murray, sponsored driver of Lazer Star Lights, drove his Can-Am Maverick right into the winners circle at the Score Imperial Valley 250. Coming off of a second place finish from the 28th annual San Felipe 250, Murray Motorsports had their sights set high for this inaugural race in the California desert. As many racers plan ahead of time to attend such a race, the Murray brothers made a last-minute decision to head down to Southern California and put some tires to dirt.
Without the luxury of a pre-run, Derek and crew were practically flying blind through this treacherous race course. As if this hadnt made things difficult enough, they began the race at the back of the pack and fought their way to the front for a well earned first place podium bottle of champagne. Team Murray will be celebrating their efforts and win on their way to Nevada to compete in the BITD Silver State 300.
