What happened to SS300?

No Silver State 300 in 2016.

Silver State 300 is permitted by the Caliente BLM. That field office of the BLM can only permit two races per year. Casey gave up the SS300 for the changes with V2R.

BITD will come back to Caliente in 2017.

BITD has 3 year contract with Pahrump.

We booked Laughlin, we are stoked to have a major off-road race back in Laughlin. Little tough with the Baja 500 one month after but we are going to make it work.

It's not a problem putting 300 teams in Tonopah. Last Vegas to Reno the long way, camping out in the open was a lot more fun that we expected. Housing everybody ended up being a non-issue. Good times roaming around the other race teams BSing with all of them. That's good stuff. I remember Casey told me then that that would be the last time. Too much work trying to organize multiple day races. Kudos to Casey for the renewed effort. Casey as been good at treating us all as equals, no matter what class we race in.
