    Mint 400 race time/day Changes

    I remember SCORE Laughlin when they ran the TTs with the Class 1 - open wheel and closed wheel not a good combo. Granted, it was a hugely different course. Pat, thoughts about heavy closed wheel vs light open wheel contact?

    Whelp, that's a wrap... thank you everyone :)

    I received a call from BITD in September that they are going in a new direction and will not need me anymore. Just like that, I was done. I am beyond thankful for Casey answering my phone call inquiring about volunteering 15 years ago this past October (never had been to an off-road race EVER)...

    Mint 400 & UTVWC Independent in 2020

    I'm not sure why you think it's fake. An original Mint course was down at Jean. As you know, Don Wall and I secretly put everything together to bring this race back and we did it, so I do know a smidge about the history. Everyone remembers the north course the most, but the south course was...

    KOH peeps - another way to help Pistol's family...

    Donate to a great cause and enter for a Stage 3 audio kit. Stop by Rockford Fosgate at the 4 Wheel Parts - Riverside booth during King of The Hammers Feb. 2-8. On Jan. 18th Pete Sohren – a staple in the off-road community – was killed in an accident while preparing for a race. All proceeds go...

    An open plea to Martelli bros., BITD or anyone willing to make a change

    They would absolutely listen if I were the one wearing the vest :) Also, they would never get in there in the first place with the dog or a pass not physically adhered or any other shenanigans. Either take the dog home or give me your pass - sorry, but we have enforced rules and you're not...

    2017 BITD Parker 425 Presented by Impact..... Pit 4 Mineral Wash

    In 2.5 weeks-ish, the Parker 425 will be upon us once again. And once again, I will be the Pitler/Hostess/Chefette up there. I just got off the phone with Lee of Banning Motorsports and he is once again graciously donating the best chicken and carne asada I've ever had - anyone who was up...

    Another Race - Another Fire While Pitting!!

    Ahhh, I see. I see a lot of fuel being spilled when pitting at every bike/quad race when fueling - with catch alls underneath, of course. You'd be surprised how many teams don't use dry brake systems. Just makes me uneasy with it running watching that happen.

    Another Race - Another Fire While Pitting!!

    Personally, I would like to see the bikes and quads shut off when fueling.

    Another Race - Another Fire While Pitting!!

    I experienced this firsthand not once, but twice, at V2R. The first one was one truck over from me, the second I was walking by with a crew member from another team to find their car when it lit off - and he got 2nd degree burns on his legs. Both were UTV teams. The second fire, the dump can...

    Blue Water Desert Challenge Entry List.

    I remember when SCORE used to do that at the LDC - open wheel cars with the trucks was a disaster. They then switched to separate heats.

    I'm actually a pit captain LOL. If I need to follow my vehicle, that means that somebody liked it more than me haha

    New Tracking for the Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno - Order NOW!

    Dave, is it to just a BITD central location (scoring trailer or whatever at the start/finish) or will the pit captains be included as well?
