Two Action-Packed Weekends? Absolutely!

This year, we’re combining some of the classes previously held in January and February into one colossal racing extravaganza. This schedule overhaul guarantees more opportunities for our classes to shine, a well-executed event, and ample time to experience the vibrant energy of Sin City. Mark your calendars for November 1-4, where you’ll witness the prowess of XR Modifieds, Sport Modifieds, and Stock Carsβ€”the traditional Duel. The excitement continues from November 8-11, featuring USRA Modifieds, XR Late Models, Dwarf Cars, and Sport Compacts. Two weekends, one unforgettable experience!

All-Access Pass: A Ticket is Your Pit Pass

In our dedication to champion grassroots racing, we’re introducing a significant change in how the event is structured. The pit area is now conveniently located around turns 3 & 4 of the race track, and here’s the big news: every event ticket grants you all-access pit privileges. Both fans and competitors can freely move between the stands and pits throughout the week, fostering a more engaging and immersive experience. Purchase Passes HERE!

Personal and Pit Vehicles Welcome

Your personal and pit vehicles are more than welcome in the pits. To do so, simply purchase a permit for each vehicle and adhere to the posted rules and regulations.
