it's a long enough race that you could drive pit to pit on the highway for most of the pits and keep up with the race. there is usually one remote pit that is too far off the main road to do. I would pick a few teams to follow, so it makes it exciting to keep up with them. they will release the pit locations a few weeks before the race, to plan.Thanks guys. never been to a desert race. Looks like a good time though. We have lots of short course in the midwest here.
Hey RacingTraX is always looking for good people to hire to work the event putting on off-road trackers .Trying to plan a trip to go see this race. Anyone know what dates I should get there? Says the race is Aug11th-15th. Isn't there some type of car show with all the race vehicles before the race?
You are thinking of what is traditionally pit 3, cottontail.Isn't that the old airstrip where the old rental companion of the evening used to be? WtF would that be BLM's choice for a start or a finish there except to punish racers? What's up with the folks in Beatty?
The finish probably isn't really the best spot to see trucks going fast in the desert. You're better off heading south of Reno a bit and finding a spot where you can sit and enjoy the show. The last handful of miles are slow and technical and the finish doesn't afford much in the way of good spectating. If you google the course map from last year you'll probably be pretty close to whatever this year will look like, for planning purposes.Anybody have any information on this race? Specifically the finish? I am thinking of heading down to watch the finish, if spectators are welcome, but can't find any info on it other than it finishes in Dayton. I see the afterparty is at the Nugget, but I want to watch some trucks going fast in the desert.
