That would be great!! It would need to be a centralized location where we can get the Cali, Mexico, AZ, and Vegas. Like Barstow??

Barstow would be sweet...never been to a race there but heard great things...not a far drive from any of the aformentioned places...people with pull in the desert like PAB and others should push for this...of course not this year or maybe even not next...but it should not die on RDC like so many good ideas...

The hard part would be getting the BLM to let us use more land than what they already got. I think the towns of Barstow and Victorville would be more than accomodating on having such a big race. Food for thought...

This is a big problem. With the existing limits, a race like the next MORE race with potentially 200+ entries is already pushing the limits of a loop race. To go bigger, we need a lot of the old race areas back!

My question is, and I know there are many answers, but why are there 200 entries for this up-coming race in Barstow, and only 30 or so for this weekends Sonoita 300 in Rocky Point ?

Could Barstows location IN calif. be the main reason ? I'm thinking travel time has got to be the main reason. I have raced SCORE races in Barstow in the 80's. And I have spent a lot of time in Rocky Point. There is NO COMPARISON, between a RP race, and Barstow.

the drive and timing IMO, there are so many races coming up. But I would like the idea of a 100 mile loop in plaster city...

I'd like to see SNORE, MORE and MDR do a "Shootout" race to see who's the fastest of the fast.
