One man, one machine, one desert, one way. A fan-fave Best in the Desert Racing Association event, there’s no better place to relish American off-road motorsports than Nevada’s rural, high desert terrain. Each year, this legendary, recently resurrected motorsports race moves to different cities and towns throughout the country, and West, mainly selected for pristine off-roading riding conditions and carefully plotted courses, but also to ensure that no competitor has ever ridden the route before with no home-field advantages. Previous host cities have been Tonopah, while this year’s race course is mapped around two Nevada communities—Panaca and Lovelock.
Open to motorcycles only, the AMA World Hare and Hound Championship Presented by GPR will be run point-to-point on a 110+ mile course across nearly untouched terrain surrounding Panaca (September) and Lovelock (October.) Racers will have their skills put to the ultimate test, welcoming pro, expert, amateurs, family, women’s, and youth motorcycle classes. While a variety of classes beckons riders of all skillsets, a talented pool of professional off-road racers are expected to show up for a $6,000 purse—and that’s on top of the Best in the Desert’s normal pro payback.
