Last month we wrote about Max Eddy Jr and his plans to solo the annual Vegas to Reno race. Max was first off the line yesterday morning when the race began a 5:45am. He stayed in the lead for over half of the race before the motor on his Honda CRF450x gave out. That handed the race lead to the THR Kawasaki of Shane Esposito who was being chased by David Pearson on the Purvines Racing Honda. That is how the positions would stay until the finish. Shane Esposito and Chris Brown win the 2011 Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno.
