8/7/13: Ready for Vegas to Reno Race Aug 16th
The #94 Strobel Motorsports crew has been clicking wrenches and working hard prepping the
Big Red machine for the grueling BITD Vegas To Reno race. This is the longest off-road race in the U.S. and
the team knows what it takes to win this event having finished first overall in the V2R race in 2011. "Everyone
on the crew is excited for this one" said owner/driver Steve Strobel. "We have the new Kroyer motor in
which will produce some additional horsepower and we've done some additional R&D which we believe will
really propel the team to a new level. We can't wait to get out there and drop the hammer!"
3/26/13: Heartbreaking End to Mint 400
Steve Strobel and the #94 Strobel Motorsports team had moved up from their 25th starting
position to as high as 6th overall at the grueling Mint 400. However, during the final lap the rear shocks
began to face which led to a rear-end housing break ending the team's run a mere 30 miles from the finish
line. The team is back at the shop already prepping for the next BITD Silver State 300 race on May 5th.

Picking up right where Strobel Motorsports left off in 2013, Steve Strobel and Dale Ebberts piloted the #94 Ford F-150 Trophy Truck to a 4th place finish at the always challenging BITD Parker 425 race. After qualifying the truck in the 17th spot, the team knew they would have their work cut out for them. However, with some skillful driving and some strong pit crew work the big red truck finished in 4th place, some 11 minutes behind the race winner. Next up is the BITD Mint 400 on March 21st.

"This is quite an honor" said Steve. "Receiving this recognition in the first full year of racing every 2012 SCORE event is special.

The help that Kevin Kroyer and all the guys at Kroyer Racing Engines provides, Schaeffer Oil, Fox Shox, Method Wheels, RePlayXD...everybody is absolutely invaluable. Thanks again to all who helped throughout the entire 2012 season!" Strobel said.
