The year end Budlight Dash was the best way to finish off the year.
raced that a few years, and spectated another few ones, dizzed memories but fun times for sure

r.e. the Hyundai track- The Honda Track is due north about 20 miles from there. Same kind of place but twice as big. California City could use the love.
Maybe Honda would be up for it since they do support offroad

What made Riverside was the access to spectating from your camp and pit. Think about the mile of spectators on either side of the track with the water balloon battles over the track. Spectators vs pits. It was epic. And the huge grandstands that could see most of it. On the spectator side the constant parade of cars and the blasting Led Zepplin music all night. It was like Evil Kneivel Snake River and a 70's burning man all in 1.

I miss The Avi race. El Dorado was a good one as well as the Apex SNORE 250....

Racing up in the areas North of Vegas (Mint-400 in particular). Also, the old SNORE races up at Nellis Dunes. Ironic that specific area is designated as a BLM OHV use area, but we can't race there due to EPA dust abatement rules. Now that's laughable.

Racing out of Pahrump and up North toward Amorgosa Valley is also missed by me...

How about the Frontier-250 route around Goodsprings, NV? There are still areas in that vicinity that could be raced, but homes are starting to eat up some of that area now.

How about all that area North of I-15 between Jean and Primm. Been decades since we could race up there.

I really miss SCORE LDC and spectating the HWY 160 area along the moon bumps and the wash coming down to the infield in that direction. Witnessed some of the best racing action ever there. I miss the Primm 300 too. I love Baja as much as anyone else but I really think SCORE is missing a huge chunk of their tradition and history without having USA races.

Also miss the BITD TT250 with cars starting and finishing at race speed right behind Terribles Casino in the middle of town.

I also miss cars being able to go race speed in pit areas. Don’t get me wrong, speed limits are smarter and safer, but chasing stateside used to be ALOT more fun.

I always liked Nelson Hills...sort of a figure 8 loop was fun. Eldorado Valley was fun too, BLMs revenge was rough AF. The AVI race when it started and finished at the hotel. SNORE 250 loop at APEX was brutal, but fun! That's where we got our 1st first place in class and OVERALL finally dethroning Ron Brant. Good Times!!
And I wish I had the chance to race the old Silver Dust Pioche race...some guy hit a highway patrol car during the race and that ended that. ; )

Maybe it's not possible at the bigger races, but almost all of the BOR races have a pit area bypass so the vehicles can race alongside the pits at full speed if they don't need to come through the pits and stop.
