    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.

  • Punishing Parker Course Greets Jeepspeed Racers At Season Opener
    Thursday, 14 February 2019
     

    Parker, AZ

    The first race of the General Tire Jeepspeed Series, presented by KMC Wheels, takes place at one of the toughest courses in the series. Parker, Arizona, is one of the most popular destinations for racers, and their fans. The scenery in Parker is spectacular, the terrain is challenging, and since everyone is starting with a clean slate, the competition is always fierce. All the meticulous work done while planning for the race, and the long hours spent in the garage, paid off with ear to ear grins on everyone’s faces. The field was loaded with many familiar faces, but new teams, and new trucks were also in the mix. Everyone was eager to put points on the board, and compete

  • Jeeps Speed To The Finish At Pahrump Nugget 250
    Monday, 10 December 2018

    Pahrump, NV

    There is something going on in the General Tire Jeepspeed series presented by KMC Wheels. Regardless if it’s the new faces in the field, or the experienced veterans, the competition has exploded this season. The pace set at the final race of the season, the Best in the Desert series Pahrump Nugget 250, was unbelievable. At last year’s race, Jimmy Perry ran a blazing fast time for the win, even beating the modified 3700 Jeepspeed Outlaws. His winning time of 6:18:46 was shattered this year. Jimmy beat his own time from last year by a whopping 27 minutes, but that was only good for 5th place in class 1700. Winner Garett Allred finished the 250 miles of rocks, ruts, and silt in 5:20:29. That’s nea

  • 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
