The Best In The Desert series Vegas to Reno race, at 505 miles, is the longest offroad race in the United States. The course traverses every type of punishing terrain you could imagine, and some you can’t. This year there was a section of deep mud, in a normally dry desert, only a few miles from the finish. The rest of the course is made up of silt, sand, and rocks of all sizes.

The flooded lake bed soon subsided, but the rain had a much more lasting effect. The terrain there is very rocky.

They can act like ball bearings, causing control problems in the corners. They can
