Best In The Desert, the premier American Off-Road Racing Series, is excited to present next month’s Blue Water Resort & Casino “PARKER 425”, February 3rd thru 5th in Parker, Arizona. “The Legend Lives On” at this opening round for Best In The Desert’s car and truck classes.

October 5, 2011 – Las Vegas, NV

There are just days remaining until the green flag drops on two full days of non-stop racing action at the exciting Blue Water Desert Challenge. As the event program went to press, there were already 128 entries. With additional entries taken up to the end of registration on Friday, over 150 competitors in 18 Best In The Desert classes are expected to take on the specially designed 26-mile course. Last year, at the end of the race, less than a minute separated Steve Sourapas & Andy McMillin from B.J. Baldwin in a two-day battle for supremacy in the coveted Trick Truck class, won by Sourapas & McMillin. And in the 1500 class, four minutes separated Loren Brown, the eventual winner, from the top 4 finishers. Will this year be as tight – or even tighter?

Rounds 10 and 11 of the 2011 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series are coming up quick.

The 2011 SNORE KC HiLiTES Midnight Special was a battle from the start. First it was set to be in Jean NV, its home for years, then it was going to be at the Moapa Indian Reservation, and that got denied, so SNORE did what they knew and made it a BAP style multi-day race.
