SUPERSTITION MOUNTAINS — Hell hath no fury Aaron Tuck couldn't handle.
The 20-year-old Imperial motocrosser smoked all comers in the "King of the Desert" off-road race Saturday.
Tuck tore through five laps of a 25-mile course in 2 hours and 56 seconds, averaging 62 mph on his big Honda 650R.
San Diego-based racing promoter Otis "Fud" Fudpucker called the back stretch of the "King" course "14 miles of hell."
He said that stretch forced racers to the north side of Superstition Mountain, a place "you wouldn't go if you were promised something."
Tuck and the rest of the motocrossers kicked off a day of racing at 7 a.m. After Fudpucker flapped the green flag, the racers spun away from the pits. The start line and the pits were near the end of Wheeler Road.
