Red Bull hosted its second Sand Scramble at Imperial Sand Dunes in Glamis, California, last weekend, pulling in 96 entrants across two UTV classes. Red Bull Junior Off-Road Team hero Seth Quintero worked his way from last to third place in the SxS Pro class before a blown tire took him out of the running. Sand Scramble served as a warmup for his hotly anticipated return to the Dakar Rally early next year.

Fellow junior team driver Mia Chapman managed 16th in SxS Pro after starting on the second row. The Pro race was eventually won by Corbin Leaverton, with Cody Bradbury close behind in second and Kevin McCullough in third.

In the SxS Sportsman Class, Billy Slade took home top honors, followed by Zach Frausto and Jaxon Steele. Leaverton led the Pro race from the start after finishing third at the 2021 Sand Scramble. It took Bradbury half of the race to solidify his second-place finish.

The Sand Scramble course snakes its way through the big dunes at Glamis, with the final race covering 10 laps of a short course laid out through the hills. The stakes are super high from the moment the flag drops, because the race only lasts about 16 minutes for the fastest contenders. We can’t wait to catch the action next year.
