2020 Duel in The Desert Charity Recap

The Duel in the Desert “Best Appearing Car” contest took on a new form in 2020. The drivers that brought themed wraps raised money for various charities that they support.

Along with that, each class had a $1000-to-win race for registered contest drivers. $21,591.77 was raised by 141 donors through the official charity race link, with more being raised by each race team leading up to the event.

A total of $25,716.77 will be paid out to the drivers and the charities that they represented.

Congratulations to Levi Card, Chase Alves and Nevin Kennemore for winning their respective races.
