Off Road Racing Features

Prerunner Maniac coverage of the Best in the Desert Parker 425 Off Road Race 2013.

The Blue Water Desert Challenge in Parker, AZ, proved to be more challenging than most thought. The heat was blistering for October and this 2 day short course race tested the endurance and durability of these racers vehicles.

Last Friday (8-17-2012) racers headed out on the "Longest Off Road Race in America", the Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno race. At 9:20am all the car/truck classes left the line for one of the most epic races of the 2012 season. Garrick Freitas took the overall win in his #1572 Class 1500 car with a time of  9:01:20.

The day started early for the MX, Quad and UTV racers, around 5:30 in the morning. For the truck and car classes they got to sleep in with the first racer leaving the line at 9:30.

The Mint 400 is probably one of the most iconic desert races of all time, and thanks to Mad Media and their partnership with Best in the Desert they are keeping this race alive.

The SNORE Battle at Primm 2012 put a whole new meaning to "Going for Broke". With such a short course to race most racers kept the skinny pedal to the floor, and the results was a great weekend of racing with a lot of DNFs.

The first race in 2012 for the Best in the Desert racing series is the infamous Parker 425. This race runs through the Parker Arizona desert and proves to be one of the toughest off-road races here in the U.S.

Erik Miller of Miller Motorsports scores the overall win at the 2012 King of the Hammers, finishing his 2 laps in just 6:03:51. It was 2:03pm when Erik crossed the finishline Miller beat out 134 competitors to win the coveted title and $25,000 prize purse.

The SNORE Rage at the River is the last race of the 2011 season for SNORE, and it seems they keep the best for last. This year we saw Terry Householder take the overall win for the weekend.

Felt like the North Pole in Jean Nevada for the 2011 Best in the Desert Transwest Ford Henderson 250 .

Here are a few shots from Qualifying for Round 9 & 10 of the 2011 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series

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.

The first race of the season for SNORE Racing is the Battle at Primm. This is one of the best spectator desert races in the Las Vegas area, short 13 mile loop course allows race fans to see their favorite racers more than once around the track. If they missed them Saturday they can come back Sunday and see them again.

Not only is the Parker 425 desert race put on by Best in the Desert the season opening race it is also one of the most popular.

New sponsors' logos adorn the skins of race cars and trucks, drivers are fresh from their Holiday rest, and Parker has some of the best terrain to drive on in the entire south west, all of these things make this the perfect recipe for one of the best races of the year.
