Wasatch Diesel Performance represented at the 2019 Parker 425 race last weekend in Parker, AZ. The annual race is held and traditionally pits some of the world's fastest off-road vehicles in the world.

Parker 425 FAQ

How does the Parker 425 begin? - This event kicks off with their exciting “Time Trial” event, which determines Top starting positions for Trick Trucks, Class 1500 & Class 6100 only.

Once the time trial works through the competitors and slots them accordingly, the attendees get to show off their vehicles at the Show and Shine Experience. This year's show will be held at the Downtown Parker Experience.

All Time Trial vehicles will be on display downtown and then escorted back to the Main Pit Area. This is where the real fun of the Park 425 begins.
