TOOELE, UT, May 26, 2019 – Sarah and Bridget Burgess headed down to Ensenada Mexico for rounds 3 and 4 of the 5th Annual Rockstar Energy Battle South of the Border Presented by Lucas Oil.

The green flag dropped and the crowd on their feet cheered the ProLite field across the start line for the 10 lap race. Round 3 certainly didn’t disappoint with hard fought battles and a ton of action. Bridget in the Gear Off Road Prolite crossing the finish in 10th and Sarah finishing 7th in the Axalta Racing Prolite
Sunday and round 4 of the 5th Annual Rockstar Energy Battle South of the Border Presented by Lucas Oil with both Sarah and Bridget representing the Gear Off Roadbrand on both Prolite trucks.
Due to the track being located virtually on the beach, the track surface produces challenges with visibility. Sarah driving her Gear Off Road prolite aggressively and working hard to move forward, clipped a giant tractor tire marking the outside of the track rolling twice before coming to a stop. Sarah was able to start the Gear Off RoadProlite back up and finish the race in 10th.
Bridget and her Gear Off Road Prolite was having a great race, showing good pace and taking great lines, only to be taken out by another competitor and placing her 11th
