FluidLogic™ driver Ryan Arciero took top honors for the second year in a row in the Method Race Wheel Casey Folks Vegas to Reno, Best in the Desert’s flagship event of the 2022 season. Ryan took both First in class and First Overall in his 2WD truck. His winning time was 6:22:39 - over two minutes ahead of any other competitor and nearly eight minutes faster than his closest competition in class. After seeing his truck totally burn to the ground at the 2020 Vegas to Reno, Arcerio has come back to win Vegas to Reno in both 2021 and 2022.
Vegas to Reno featured all the desert has to offer – extreme heat, slippery mud, dust-like silt, giant rocks, and deep streams. More than 300 racers launched from the start line early Friday morning, and many said it was one of the hottest and most challenging Vegas to Reno courses they had ever run. Arciero said about FluidLogic, “My hydration was probably one of the key things that got me to the finish line first. The truck was on point, we all did our jobs, but in triple digit heat, your hydration really plays an important part.”
The human body depends on water for survival. Recent studies confirm the importance of consistent hydration in driver focus and performance. During races, Ryan’s team runs the FluidLogic hydration system, the most advanced Active Hydration™ system available. FluidLogic delivers precise bursts of fluid through a silicone nozzle that sleeves over the driver’s in-helmet microphone. The technology includes a steering wheel-mounted, LED illuminated button that remains perfectly in sync with the driver’s user generated parameters. When the button blinks, it’s time to drink. It’s that simple.
In addition to the typically anticipated elements of the race, officials were challenged with the course all week long, battling monsoon rains that rendered certain sections of the course impassable. When race day finally came, the planned 495-mile race course shrunk by slightly under 100 miles after the necessary modifications.
