MasterCraft Racing has "uped the ante" by securing "Turbo Tom" Geviss as the co-driver of the No. 30 Jimco-built SCORE Trophy Truck. During his 30 years of racing in both the driver's and passenger's seat, Geviss has accumulated five Baja 1000 victories and numerous class and series championships. Tom was also named the driver of record for the Man race support vehicle for Robby Gordon's 2009 Dakar program in the H3 Hummer. Navigating the treacherous and diverse South American terrain in the Man race support vehicle has added an incredible level of experience to Geviss' already impressive resume.
"I don't think I could find a more experienced co-driver on Earth," Pierce commented. "Tom has done it all. Whether it is desert racing, rock-crawling or navigating through Dakar, Tom epitomizes the ideal co-driver I want sitting in my right seat. His level of experience undoubtedly elevates our sport and my team," added Pierce.
"I am confident that Robbie and I can add a few more trophies to the mantle," said a smiling Geviss. Pierce joins a who's-who list of talent that has teamed with "Turbo Tom", including off-road royalty such as Larry Ragland, Jon Nelson, Robbie Gordon, NASCAR's Jimmie Johnson, John Marking, and most recently, Jesse James.
Geviss's co-driver position will be in the No. 30 Trophy Truck outfitted with MasterCraft Safety 3G suspension seats and complimented by MasterCraft Safety five-point restraints and SFI-approved 3.2A/5 MasterCraft Safety race suit. MasterCraft Safety's full-line of performance seating offers both comfort and protection in high "G" load situations and provides an 84% reduction of energy in a 50 G load impact.
