Hughes Race Car

November 10, 2018 -
Jason Hughes added another coveted win to his resume on Saturday night. He outperformed a field of more than 200 competitors in his Henryetta Ford #12 Murphrey Oil Company/ Red Tail Tackle/ Hughes Chassis Modified. For his efforts, he was rewarded with a $7,777.77 victory during the 21st annual Duel in the Desert at the Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

"We had a really good car every night," Hughes said. "Luck was on our side down here in Vegas with the draw, but you've got to have the car to back it up and finish the job. I wasn't even planning on coming out here because I didn't want to make the drive, but I'm really glad we did."

Thursday night found Jason Hughes in action at the Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (Las Vegas, Nevada), during the opening round of the 21st annual Duel in the Desert. With a stout field of 207 IMCA Modifieds on hand for the three-day event, Jason started the night with a heat race victory, positioning him on the pole for the preliminary feature.

Leading wire-to-wire, Jason Hughes topped Tom Berry Jr., Peyton Taylor, R.C. Whitwell, and Cody Laney at the line to pick up his third win of the season.

With his spot already locked into the Saturday’s finale, Hughes sat out Friday’s program to prepare for the main event. Starting on the pole for the coveted finale, Jason held off third-starting Ricky Alvarado in the 40-lap feature to reel in his fourth win of the season and a $7,777.77 payday. Alvarado, Ricky Thornton Jr., Shane DeVolder, and Peyton Taylor trailed him to the checkers.

“It’s really awesome to get a win in such a massive event,” Hughes commented. “Not many events see over 200 guys battling for the win, so to be the one who comes out on top is really special to my team and I.”
