    Snore will be doing a meet and greet for the Caliente Dusty Times 250 at the elementary school on Friday June 22nd for 8 am to 9:30 am. . This event lets the kids of Lincoln county see the race cars up close and meet the drivers in past years of this event 200 plus kids showed up . If you plan on attending the event the school will be cooking a pancake breakfast for the participants and don't forget to bring hero cards to pass out.

    This is a huge part of this race seeing the kids eyes light up talking to the drivers and seeing the cars is awesome! Well worth getting there early!

    If you want to feel like a rockstar without growing a pistol mullet... and feel like you've done a good thing, show up to the meet/greet. The overwhelming positive vibe and appreciation for drivers/crew members/volunteers alike is amazing!

    The next big thing in off-road may be attending the Caliente Elementary School.... you wouldn't want to miss being a part of inspiring a dream, would you? It may sound like an overstatement, but the enthusiasm you see in these kids eyes is rewarding enough to make it up there early if you're going to the race.

    Not sure if they have passenger trains through there anymore. That'd be a kick ass ride though. Scenic!

    There's a rumor that Sheila is showing up to echo around the mountains.
