“Life is an Adventure. Come live your adventure with Best In The Desert!” Casey Folks

Jason Cobb Captures the First Casey Folks Perseverance Award

Posted December 19, 2017

December 2017, Las Vegas, Nevada

At Best in the Desert’s 2017 year end awards capping off the best year for entries in the organization’s history, the Inaugural “Casey Folks Perseverance Award” was announced as a new annual award.  It is given to  someone who encompasses hard work, dedication, integrity and most importantly perseverance. Casey was a man of his word. No matter what it took, Casey persevered to honor his commitments. Throughout Casey’s life, he faced many difficult times. 

He met challenges head on and would never back down or take the easy way out. He stood for what was right and was a man of integrity. Casey’s Motto was: Lead, Follow or get out of the way. Casey was a leader and lived the adventure of a lifetime. This trophy represents all the attributes Casey exhibited throughout his life and the legacy that lives on.

Jason Cobb was chosen as the first recipient of this prestigious annual award due to many factors. Jason has been one of Best in the Desert’s most ardent supporters for years. He went through a series of serious health issues, but was fortunate to be surrounded by a very supportive family, including his wife Gretchen, and successful racer son Josh. Fortunately Jason is now cancer-free. In the midst of his health issues, he lost two jobs within the industry, but persevered throughout it all, and is now the proud owner of Trophy Lite.

The Best in the Desert organization and family are fortunate to have Jason involved with us, and wish him the best of luck in his Trophy Lite adventure, and all future endeavors.
