2021 All Terrain Concepts UTV Legends Championship Postponed Due to Updated COVID-19 Policies
Posted March 17, 2021


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: LAS VEGAS, NV (March 17, 2021): Best In The Desert has announced that the 2021 All Terrain Concepts UTV Legends Championship scheduled for March 25-28, 2021 in Laughlin, Nevada has been rescheduled to September 9-12, 2021.

The event has been rescheduled due to updated COVID-19 policies recently implemented by the State of Nevada and Clark County. While the announcement is extremely disappointing for racers, teams, fans, and Best In The Desert staff, the organization look forward to holding the event come September.

Racers who are registered for the 2021 All Terrain Concepts UTV Legends Championship will automatically be granted entry to the rescheduled event on September 9-12, 2021, or can choose to have their entry fee reimbursed.

“Dealing with COVID-19 has certainly been challenging over the last year with the many new hurdles thrown at Best In the Desert. Unfortunately, a new one appeared out of nowhere for the All Terrain Concepts UTV Legends Championship scheduled for next week,” commented Best In The Desert CEO Daryl Folks. “We regret having to make this untimely announcement and we apologize to the racers, their support crews, sponsors, media, the town of Laughlin, and our staff, along with all of our volunteers for the disappointment and any inconvenience this may create. Best In the Desert will now refocus all of its efforts and attention to our next two events, the upcoming Jimco Racing Silver State 300 and Rocky Mountain ATV/MC World Hare and Hound Championship Presented by GPR.”

Best In The Desert Race Operations Mgr. Jeff Phillips added, “We have been working closely with the Laughlin Tourism Commission and Laughlin Chamber of Commerce to get our event approved, and all of us are, quite naturally, disappointed to have to make this announcement. The permit process required by the State of Nevada and Clark County has become a bit of a moving target. Until today, we were under the impression our permit was being approved. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this causes our racers, sponsors, and fans of Best In The Desert. We will be back in September with the All Terrain Concepts UTV Legends Championship event and we promise to make it even bigger and better.”

Questions can be directed to Best In The Desert through contact methods found here.

The 2021 All Terrain Concepts UTV Legends Championship will be open to motorcycles, quads, and UTVs and run on a 17-mile racecourse in Laughlin, Nevada rescheduled for September 9-12, 2021.

We raced in Laughlin 2 weeks ago........
March 15th, King Sisilak released new directives for the latest events gatherings. It created a new permit process at the state level that takes estimated 30 days to navigate for approval.

New permit. New process. New world.

I want my old world back now please.

Yeah such a bummer/Pain in the butt. Not sure how nascar can hold events within a confined space but off-road races in open spaces are not allowed in clark county.

New permit process that takes 30 days implemented less than 30 days before the race? That's what happened to BOR's Wendover race last fall. Super lame.

Hang on while I put on my tin foil hat... A coincidence out of the entire 9 months remaining in 2021 they picked a new race date 2 weeks prior to the already scheduled legacy dirt rebellion utv race? Hmmmm

Or you could look at it that they scheduled it two weeks before there already scheduled Laughlin Desert Classic race when all their equipment, resources, staff, and dirt work has already been done. Logistically it makes sense. Weather wise it won’t be a lot of fun.

There is only so many open weekends for all the series out there. It’s challenging for everyone picking dates and having to adjust.
