I think that's one of the biggest impediments to a NYE race nowadays (or any holiday weekend, really)....there's a TON more people that go to Superstition/Plaster City now than there was back then. And the vast majority of them probably have no idea about off road racing on public lands and the do's and don'ts of it.

I like BITD because they still put on long distance off-road races for motos/quads and they try to make them as safe as feasible. big kudos for being able to convince them to add moto/quads to M400 this year.

We had been trying to convince Casey to bring the bikes back since 2014.

+1 for bringing back Barstow to Vegas. Only got to see it on tv as a kid.

I bet B2V would be a really tough nut to crack. Another one of those things that if it were reasonable to pull off, someone likely would have attempted it already.

you see , we need a ' salesman(woman, ect) to sell a b2v as an ecologically sound investment& conservation of our Precious deZert resource's, some how get the mig 29 cat to get some wind& solar powered entrys to do eco- friendly feel good storys on and sell it to major sponsors as a " green" race, evan have a segment of a race car driver saving a precious dZZert tortious, sound familiar?, plus this could be a new years point to point race conducted safely because it will run trough a blm gauntlet, no holiday lost desert virgin bunnys criss crossing the course in there sxs's, & think about the hype of finishing IN vegas on new years at around 9-10 pm.winna winna.....

Dave, do you have some secret trail that is NOT inside the Desert Preserve that follows the B2V route and is allowed for competitive speed events? Please share!!!

thats why this requires a ' salesperson, i mean when it comes to" green" the wind mill lobby gets a pass on hacking up condors& other endangerd species, not to mention solar farms cooking thousands of birds, its all relative.if its sold as " fighting climate change" ( how do we know if- when we won fight?), you get a p.c. pass and we can run our green b to v race and save the planet from global climate warming man made climate changing weather

Barstow to Vegas was back when green was just a color... Maybe it could be done again with more concern for the wildlife.... IDK.... Interesting comments at the 6:00 mark......

Yes Dave, Please share !!!!

I dont have it dialed yet. But I truly believe nothing is impossible if you work hard enough. B2V is not the hardest part of what I have been dreaming up and trying to get done. I want the race to start in Ensenada and end in Vegas. You would be surpriaed what can be accomplished when you dont stop moving forward
