Why stop at Vegas?
From what I have dealt with the El Centro BLM office would never again give a permit on a holiday weekend. Even our local D38 races cant get permits if its too close to a holiday. The dash was an awesome race.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.
