Toyota Silver State Showdown by Fox Shox
Wild West Motorsports Park August 25, 2012 - August 26, 2012
Some of off-road racing biggest stars like Brian Deegan, Jeremy McGrath, Twitch and Cameron Steele will make the trip to Wild West Motorsports Park to compete!
This fan-friendly, off road race will be making its first appearance in the Reno/Sparks area. Part of the celebrated Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, this short course competition features intense four wheel, door to door action. The race takes place in the new Wild West Motorsports Park, located east of Sparks on I-80 at the Mustang exit.
Short-course racing is off-road racing’s most spectator friendly discipline. Fans can see the entire course from the permanent 4,500-seat grandstand, and watch all of the action as the racers lap a course filled with jumps, dirt moguls and tight turns. Fields of or more than a dozen off-road trucks take to the track at a time, racing neck-to-neck, resulting in occasionally spectacular crashes as racers fight for position. The venue will feature an exciting Midway Area, where fans can meet their favorite drivers and check out the fun-filled vendor's displays.
The Toyota Silver State Showdown by Fox Shox will feature multiple race classes spanning pro trucks, modified karts and buggies. The race weekend will bring in hundreds of race competitors and thousands of fans from across the Western U.S. The host hotels are the Silver Legacy Resort Casino and the Grand Sierra Resort.
The Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series is the evolution of the long-standing support of short course racing by Forrest Lucas and Lucas Oil Products. The event is scheduled to receive 14 hours of television coverage on five national television networks: CBS, CBS Sports Network, NBC Sports Network, SPEED and MAVTV. It will air approximately 4-6 weeks after the event takes place.
