As I'm watching videos to prepare for the next race I noticed a lot of live stock on the course. Who's responsible if you hit a cow while racing in NV?

Good question. I think In Mexico it’s hit and run and promotor pays rancher back

Racer skips, promoter pays to maintain relations and BLM permit.

We always work with the ranchers to get the cattle off the land we're racing during race weekend. I'd say that works 90% of the time and the ranchers are happy to do it.

As for the wild horses and antelope..not much we can do about them but they're usually out in the open.

At the Baja 2000 we popped a huge cow in our class 8 that jumped out from the side at night and we went straight through him, barely slowed down. We had zero time to react which saved us unlike in the video. Unfortunately he saw the cows and the slight movement to the left to avoid it upset the truck just enough. I was covered in cow poop and blood when I got out at the next pit and one of our lights was just the housing packed full of poop too. I'll never forget that deal..
