For immediate press release…

California City, CA , Sep 8, 2020 – AVE/BP RACING is pleased to announce that Pine Canyon Motorsports has joined our family of sponsors for the remainder of our shortened 2020 PURE UTV Off-Road Dezert Series, as a cash-paying sponsor when they posted $500.00 “large ones” for the Overall spots. Depending on the number of entries either the money will go to the first Overall UTV that finishes the race or to the top three.

Lou Peralta, race organizer and co-owner of the AVE/BP Racing and the Bar-Bs Ranch stated, “We are really delighted to have Pine Canyon Motorsports join our family of sponsors who directly support the racers themselves. We keep not a cent of that sponsorship, which just delights us to no end.”

Peralta wants to thank off-road and PURE UTV racer, Ashleigh Lombardi for the kind posting of prize money. Ashleigh who participates in the series has also committed to sponsoring the rest of the series with the same amount.

Lombardi stated, “Pine Canyon Motorsports, established early 2020 and based in Salinas, California, is a team of goofy, fun-loving family and friends that enjoy any excuse to do something together – in this case, racing. In the racecar, or out, each person plays a vital role in the dynamics of the team. Pine Canyon Motorsports is happy to partner with AVE Racing to support racers who are out there racing simply, because it’s what they love.

Therefore the next event, the PURE “300” – October 3, 2020, a six hour, six lap event will feature a 50-mile course, which has been rated as a 6.4 in the scale (10= superfast as a freeway), meaning that as most know getting in and out of the Barb-Bs Ranch is not a picnic, as tight and rocky trails have to be maneuvered, but for most of the fifty-mile course, it will be whooped out desert, a sand wash here and there and one nice hill climb over the “lava” mountains.

All racers who enter will be e-mailed a “GPS Course Map” to upload to their units on Thursday, Oct 1, by 7 p.m., along with a video that flies you over the course and a racecourse map and just as importantly, a “racecourse access” map, showing where crews can enter and exit the race track safely should the need arise to service a racer car. ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN. Any entries received before September 21, will get an additional 10% discount. Regular entry fees remain until Thursday at 6 p.m. Thereafter, there is a “Late Fee” of $100 added to the regular fee.

There is only one day for pre-running the racecourse, that is Friday, October 2, from 12 Noon until 5 p.m. No other time is allowed.

Saturday, October 3 is race day. Check-in, Late sign-ups, Tech and Contingency start 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.; followed by a virtual Racer’s Meeting at 9 .a.m. – Staging to start the race according to the numbers drawn begins at 9:40 a.m. and closes at 9:50 a.m. Anyone late for “staging” will be sent to the back of the line but their assigned start-time remains. Race will start at 10 a.m. and finish at 4 p.m. –

IMPORTANT: We will observe all “Co-Vid-19 protocols during the event. Everyone is required to wear a mask and maintain the six-foot distancing. Racers and Navigators can race without a mask while in the car. But if you must get out and interact with aliens or repairs on your vehicle, you must wear a mask and keep your distance from people, not your car.

Dear Fellow Racers:

Well, here we go again. Some of you have been very loyal and patient and have put up with all of our nonsense.

This time, whatever happens, short of being arrested here in Kern County (REALLY DON’T THINK SO), we are going ahead with plans to present the PURE 300 event, OCTOBER 3, 2020, no matter what!!!

We are starting and finishing inside our Bar-Bs Ranch and only using “County Unmaintained” roads, trails and easements, so we think we are OK.

The course that we laid out several times before, is basically the same, except for a few tweaks here and there.

  1. The “BASIC” entry fee is $305.00. If you are a Pro, add $200.00, which goes into the Pro Purse.
  2. We will process your entry and assign your race number and provide you with final instructions as soon as we get it.
  3. However, we will not “charge” you until Thursday, October 1, just to make sure that it is a go-ahead. As soon as we do, then we will send you the course GPS file, course map and access map by 7 p.m. that same day.
  4. Pre-running is set for Friday, October 2, from 12 Noon until 5 p.m. No other time, please!
  5. There will be no t-shirts for this event since we cannot get the normal printing house to guarantee us delivery.
  6. For this event the entry includes the “tracker” unit for the race.
  7. If you or your Navigator/Co-driver need a current FUTVI card, and it shows that it is expiring in the next few months, don’t worry, we are extending all FUTVI cards to be good through December 31, 2020.
  8. If you’ve never had a FUTVI card or expired before September 11, you will need to buy one at a discount. It will only cost you $20.00 for one year.
  9. We will adhere to the Co-Vid 19 Protocols. Safe distancing and wearing a mask while around the pit, or in a group. Once racing, wear your helmet. But if you have to get out of your car and fix a flat, tweak your belt-drive, change any part, be sure to put your mask on just in case a tortoise is around, a wild rabbit or an environmental whacko!
  10. You will get a “Virtual Drivers/Navigator’s meeting on Saturday at 9 a.m.

This is a way for us to say thank you for being loyal and patient. We had hoped that all this CoVid19 stuff would be over by now, but it doesn’t appear to be so.

Regardless, check what we are also offering. Thanks to PINE CANYON MOTORSPORTS, we are adding a $500.00 bonus for the Overall.

Depending on how many entries we receive, it will either go to the top three Overall or to just the top Overall vehicle, regardless of the class.


Here is the entry form (also see attached). Alta Vista Events - OFF-ROAD & DIRT RACING - 2020 - PURE -300- RACE #2 - OCT 3 -

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. Hope to see you soon.

Thank you.
