Draganfly is pleased to announce the Draganfly Trophy Truck, driven by Ryan Arciero, won its second podium place of the season at the Mint 400 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On Saturday, December 4, 2021, Ryan placed second in the Unlimited Class (Trophy Trucks), in what was a gruelling event contested by some of the biggest and most competitive off-road drivers and teams in the world. The result marks the second successful race of the 2021 season for the Draganfly Trophy Truck following on from Ryan’s out-right victory at August’s prestigious 2021 Maxxis Tires “Casey Folks” Vegas to Reno race.
Draganfly was a key partner throughout the Mint 400, courtesy of its advanced UAV thermal imaging technology, which assisted the team safely through the large amounts of dust thrown up by competitors, which can not only cost valuable time in slowing the truck but can also pose a real danger to those racing.
Draganfly drones installed with their proprietary mapping software were also utilized to give the most accurate terrain data to the team pre-race, to provide competitive advantage in displaying areas of the 400-mile course that could create issues, or highlighting an otherwise unknown danger during the actual event.
