NeXgen Fuel/CLP Motorsport’s Trophy Truck to Run on Superior High-quality Renewable Diesel at 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship’s Final Round
In a year of firsts for the 2016 SCORE International Races, NeXgen Fuel/CLP Motorsports will lead the pack in running a trophy truck on NEXDIESEL, the purest and highest performance renewable diesel through the toughest and tortuous Mexican desert race. For the first time in history, all races will be taking place in Mexico for the 2016 season. The race series includes the Baja 250, Baja 500 and Baja 1000. In a partnership with fuel distributors Golden Gate Petroleum and NeXgen Fuel, CLP’s trophy truck will make its debut as the first-time attempt to race a trophy truck on a 100% renewable diesel.
“Last year we proved that NEXDIESEL boosts engine performance by driving our CLP Motorsports-built Superlite SLC across America on one tank of this amazing fuel,” says Team Owner and NeXgen CEO Pat O’Keefe. “This year we are pushing it to the edge by racing the CLP-Motorsports-built trophy truck in the Baja 1000 and its extreme conditions using NEXDIESEL Renewable Diesel. The “1000” is one of the toughest races in the world and there is no better venue to showcase the superior qualities of NEXDIESEL. NEXDIESEL Renewable Diesel is the perfect fuel.”
NEXDIESEL is a clean burning, high performance renewable diesel manufactured completely with bio-based feed stock. This unique alternative fuel has a chemical structure identical to traditional diesel but is petroleum-free. NEXDIESEL is the highest quality renewable diesel in the world and CLP Motorsports with NeXgen Fuel will showcase how good it really is by running it in a high-performance diesel engine.
Team drivers Larry Roeseler, Pat O’Keefe and Tyler McQuarrie will be pushing the trophy truck over an extreme, unpredictable environment, enduring challenging time spans and conditions in an attempt to claim the overall race victory with this dynamic fuel. Follow the race this November.
