What are some of the movies and tv shows that you have seen offroad racing in?? I'll start it off with "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas".....CHIPS, when Pounch and Jon raced a class 8....and Erin Brockwich, when she was talking in the phone booth you could see a SCORE and Sign Pros sticker.

Jackie Chan and the other Asian guy in that Subaru, with the night vision goggles!
Didn't the Herzog Trailblazers use a type of night vision technology as well?

"Fear and Loathing", by far....Some classic racecars in that flick!

The beginning of the "Fall Guy" had a biga$$ disco truck jumping onto the road. It got some sick air if I recall...and of course, nothing was broken! Ha, Ha!

Did anyone else see that new commerical, I forget what company it is but its on a golf course and it shows these guys jumping and flipping a golf cart and then landing it, its just really funny. It was one of the best commericals I have seen in a long time!

That golf cart commerical is awesome. It is a Diet Mountain Dew commercial. Reminds me of many golf cart extravaganzas!!!!!!! We had to bail out of a cart before a 40 foot cliff in parker. A littl too much fun for everyone....excluding our wallets!

BRAAAAAAAAP!

What about Saved by the bell - the college years, when Zack, AC, Jesse, and (Zacks chick's ex-boyfriend. . .whew) raced quads on the beach. Or Ace Ventura pet detective, when he parks that Land rover, that was siik and its also how I try and park everyday I'm in my truck.

What about the movie " Desert Steel " filmed in 1993. Where the guy tries out for Roger Mears' race team, with a small gambling problem. I actually bought it at a video store that was going out of business for a whopping $ 5.00. Some decent shots but insightful acting/actors
