    Jeepspeed was created to offer Jeep enthusiasts affordable racing, rallying and adventure. You can have fun racing durable, affordable Jeeps and you don't have to spend a million bucks.

    For 15 years Jeepspeed has delivered the best entry level racing on dirt. Jeepspeed rules are carefully written to create fierce competition while keeping race costs to a minimum.  We made class modifications in 2015 and introduced a new race series to attract new drivers and more recent models.

    Jeepspeed is not a spec class (you don't have to buy a vehicle built by a company for that class). You build your own Jeep race truck that fits your budget and skill level. Any model Jeep may be used as long as it fits into the few simple rules. 

    With an average of 20 to 30 similar race trucks on the starting line, the competition is fierce. Several top pros have launched their careers racing in the Jeepspeed series.

  • Racers Put The Speed In Jeepspeed At BITD Laughlin Desert Classic
    Friday, 26 October 2018

    Laughlin, NV

    18 Jeeps and one Dodge had a single strategy at the Best in the Desert series Laughlin Desert Classic (LDC), race in Laughlin, Nevada; run flat out. Normally Jeepspeed offroad races require a measured application of the throttle in order to survive the terrain. If you run too fast, you take a chance of breaking your equipment. At the LDC, if you run too slowly, you’ll get lapped before the finish. It is one of the rare times when it all rides on the driver’s right foot. Class 3700 winner Eric Sigwing averaged 47 mph in his LS powered Wrangler, and 1700 winner Garret Allred averaged 45 mph in his 6 cyl, 4 liter Jeep Grand Cherokee.    

    The LDC’s heat race format had Jeepspeed competitors running 3 laps on a 16 mile course ea

  • Jeepspeed Racers Take On The Longest Offroad Race In The United States
    Sunday, 19 August 2018

    Reno, NV

    Jeepspeed racers put forth dauntless efforts during the staggering 530 mile long Best In The Desert series, Vegas to Reno offroad race. Racing through the intense heat of the midday sun until after darkness, they endured miles of rocks, ruts, and silt, as well as some mud, thanks to violent monsoon downpours. Vapor locked engines, broken parts, even rollovers were overcome by these hard core racers who refused to quit. There were 16 Jeepspeed teams that competed. 8 made it to the finish line in time. 

    Thanks to the few simple rules that allow you to build your own race vehicle, and a class structure that welcomes all levels of modifications, the Jeepspeed series has exploded in popularity. With so many new vehicles being buil

  • Silver State 300 Tests Jeepspeed Racers New And Old
    Sunday, 06 May 2018

    Alamo, NV


    The General Tire Jeepspeed series presented by KMC Wheels is attracting a bevy of new racers to their series. Their class structure allows a wide range of race vehicles to compete, and the competition is fierce. At the Best In The Desert series Silver State 300 race outside Alamo, Nevada, both new and old Jeepspeed racers had their resolve tested. The course contained everything nature can dish out. There was deep silt, rocks, and ruts over much of the 300 miles. Racers had to traverse wide open valleys, tight, twisty mountain trails, and deep water stream crossings. Just surviving the course was difficult, the competition made it even tougher. Those who came out on top gave credit to a sound strategy, and a little luck.
