Hell yes, we're excited! BOR's Jackpot 250 is on! July 11th, all truck, buggy and UTV classes are welcome! Cactus Pete's will be open at 50%, and if they fill up, they may open up the Horseshu for us.

If you've never raced Jackpot, you're missing out, fast roads, rocky sections, washes, canyons, it has it all!

Anger Issues Racing will 100% be there!! This course has it all, fast stuff, rocks, trees, small hill climbs, and about 4 water crossings! Pitting is easy and you can camp for free. I have already been to the town of Jackpot to confirm the drinks are flowing and the dealers and doing their job with masks on (sucks for them).

Last year we drew first pro-class truck off the line and led 3 laps until finding out our rear-end oil had decided to vacate the housing somewhere during the first 100 miles.

Hear is a photo from testing on the other side of the highway. It is a beautiful area.

For those who have never raced a BOR race; everyone is super friendly, many teams help each other, and although the race is relatively small (so is the town), you can't beat the "bang for the buck". Jackpot is easily reached in 7 hours of mostly flat driving from Vegas.

Are we running backwards Kyle or same-same? Either way is great!

Glad you guys are coming back out, I love Jackpot!

We're running pretty much the same course as last year but backwards (minus Hell Hill).

Sounds great Kyle! I have also been in contact with Jim about volunteer and retrieval. Let us know if we can help in ANY way...

Also, "yes", I know I used the wrong "hear" up there... sometimes I type too fast and don't read what I wrote (my grammar-mode was turned off for the pandemic"). Just saving the RDC critics some time.

Kyle, can you email me please about vendor opportunity at this race? Not sure it's a thing or not at that race, but with Baja 500 cancelled, I'l looking for races in July. Thanks. Matt@LiquidAider.com

We booked our room last night. Paul R gunna make it? Somebody get ahold of Steve Sells... I will bet 100 bucks against the Blitzkrieg!! He should have leftover $$ since SCORE aint happenin.

Also, I plan on having my 220 Gen. with my Millermatic 252 in the pits. I will verify this setup works in the next couple days. The welder will be FREE to those who needs it. We can peg up some tarps in case of wind.

Ya'all can leave your welders at home... since chase is rough there anyways.

Ha, yes, Paul will be there, been talking to him regularly! Well, it's more him talking to me.... lol

Anyway, everything is still a go. Mandatory mask requirements in the hotels and casinos, but that's not really race related.

Can't wait!

We just went testing near Jackpot and conditions are absoutely PERFECT! Recent rains have beat down the dust a bit and a few puddles still exist. We didn't go in the casino, or near it even. I'm not wearing a mask to play roulette, but that is just my 2 cents! I am hoping to make at least one of the days for course marking. Kyle, are you (or whomever) staying in the pits or in the hotel beginning Wednesday?? I'm considering getting my trailer set up then.

Pretty sure there will be people marking Wednesday. The trailer is in town right now. I plan to be there Wednesday night staying in the hotel. More updates tonight/tomorrow!

T-minus 7 days, can't wait to see everyone! Please keep in mind the following Covid-19 guidelines requested by the County and BLM. BOR wants its racers to stay safe and healthy!

Please stay at home if you have tested positive for the virus, have been exposed and have been directed to quarantine by your doctor, or are experiencing any symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, or fatigue. Other COVID-19 precautions include the following event protocol:

We suggest you wear a face mask on-site at all times. It is required when going through tech, registration, signing waivers, etc
  • Practice social distancing by staying six feet apart
  • Wash your hands often, and/or use hand sanitizer when washing is not available
  • Park more than 10 feet away from neighbors
  • Please stay home and consider attending a future event if you are considered at high risk
  • Refrain from wandering or visiting neighbors
  • Leave no trace and pack out trash
  • Avoid touching the face
The casino hotels, stores, etc have their own guidelines, please follow those while on their property. At this time, ALL events will take place at the Main Pit.
Having said all that, let's race and have a good time!

I thought at one point you were cutting out "Hell Hill"... but I see it on the map and not sure how you would skip it... without losing a chunk of the course... (most of which is pretty fun!).

Hell Hill is not part of the course this year, just a landmark on the map just east of the course.

There's a cutoff around it, only lose about a mile of course. It's not runnable in the direction the course is going this year.

Easy Street backwards is going to be fun though.
