“We are creating a participant-driven festival that will bring gear heads to compete in mud bogs, truck pulls, demolition derbies, rock crawls, show & shines, ATV, and motorcycle and truck racing to Fallon to race in their specific events,” said Ty Erquiaga, Nevada Motorsport Productions/Octane Fest director.
Octane Fest sponsors include the Northern Nevada Toyota Dealers Association and Coors Light.
Signature events include the “Octane Fest TUFF-CUP Challenge” and the area’s first Tuff-Cycle racing. All this for tickets costing $10 or less per person!
Churchill County Fairgrounds
Octane Fest Motorsport Jamboree headquarters kicks off the weekend with a Full Pull Truck Pull on Friday, followed by a jam-packed Saturday with events for ATV and Motorcycles, the Iron Man Rock Crawl, Round 1 of Nevada Racer Mud Bog Championship Series, Quad Wars and a Demolition Derby. A Mad Metal Show & Shine and Antique Tractor Show & Shine join the vendors and food booths.
Signature events
“The ‘TUFF-CUP Challenge’ is an innovative hybrid, man-made race course of rock, high-speed roller style jumps and Supercross-style berms for 2x4 and 4x4 off-road trucks, buggies, motorcycle and ATV racers,” Erquiaga said. “The best way I can describe this is like old-school Mickey Thompson stadium racing meets Rock Racing or TUFF-Truck Racing on steroids.”
“Our Tuff-Cycle race is similar to an EnduroCross. It will challenge both the professional and amateur off-road racer who aspires to race the national series but wants to get their feet wet. There’s nothing like this in our area, and we aim to really grow this event,” Erquiaga said.
Live music
Friday and Saturday nights include performances by Cash Only, Hellbound Glory, Lavish Green and Livitz Livitz.
Top Gun Raceway
A supercharged NHRA Lucas Oil Series Divisional Drag Race takes place here from Friday through Sunday at this premier track 15 miles south of Fallon.
Rattlesnake Raceway
IMCA Dirt Track Open Wheel Racing at Rattlesnake Raceway on Saturday.
Oats Park
Hurricam’s Car Club’s hosts a free annual “It’s About Time” Show & Shine all day Saturday. The event includes a Kiwanis Club Pancake & Egg breakfast starting at 8 a.m.
Other events
Octane Fest starts by giving back through its annual Thursday night Charity Dinner benefiting Churchill County High School. Celebrity guests include Octane Fest Grand Marshal and local Off-Road Legend Rod Hall, the Knuckleheads MC street bike stunt team and other guests.
This is Octane Fest’s second year bringing top-notch signature motor sports events to Northern Nevada. “Octane Fest 2009 is on track to be the premier motor sports event in Northern Nevada,” Erquiaga said. www.octanefest.com
