Im not sure what exactly you are asking but- Bikes and Quads leave off the line at 0545. Car and Trucks will start at 10am.Any gouge on changes vs. last year around spacing from the TTs?
Gap is dependent on entries - Regardless of last handlebar start, First Truck will start at 10am.What I think he is asking is what will the gap be between the last quad off the line and the first trick truck? At the SS300 the time gap was changed. If a similar thing was done at VtoR, it would make it a night race for lots of teams.
Start order is announced at the meeting right before the race, its usually the same year after year.
The starting times however have been adjusted slightly, here is the release:
Best In The Desert Announces Start Times for the 2018 General Tire “Vegas to Reno” presented by FOX - Best in the Desert
Any special tips on how to prepare for the extreme heat for this race? We are from Texas and pretty used to extreme heat but racing in the heat for that amount of time/miles will be different. We plan on hydrating about 4 to 5 days ahead and have plenty of cold fluids in the pits but anything else we should think about if we decide to race V2R?
When I raced V2R in 2016, I just hydrated up until the morning of the race. Then I strategically stopped drinking anything a couple of hours before the start, but I had a drink bag with BCAAs in my YXZ and sipped on that all day. Basically I try to intake enough to keep my body happy, but not enough to have to pee......I have done that for many desert races and have not had to take a bathroom break or pee my pants in any desert race I've done. Usually, if you are moving at all, the air and sweat does it's job and you don't notice the heat too much.....
