Subaru of America - Crosstrek Desert Racer - Built & Owned by Grabowski Brothers Racing

With long-travel KING Shocks, steel skid plates, durable 35" BFGoodrich Tires, and a Subaru Boxer Engine, the Crosstrek Desert Racer is built to take any punishment the terrain can dish out. 

Off-road desert racing is a grueling sport. The Class 5 Unlimited buggies take an extensive amount of punishment for up to 1,000+ miles, with pit stops being scarcer than water. The Crosstrek Desert Racer is powered by a Crawford Performance built & tuned Subaru 2.5L Boxer engine. "When you’re crossing an environment where the plants have needles and everything that moves is poisonous, the engine has to be as tough as the conditions themselves." - Subaru Drive Performance Magazine

The Crosstrek checks all the boxes for a desert off-road build, with its tall cabin and ground clearance. “We chose the Crosstrek because it’s the off-road style vehicle in the Subaru lineup,” says Quirt Crawford. “And it’s not turbocharged.”

Driven by Dustin Grabowski and Co-Driven by Cody Woodruff of Grabowski Brothers Racing. The team has secured several wins with there biggest highlight being a 1st in Class Win at Vegas to Reno, the longest off-road race in the United States.
