HellsGate Grand Prix: It's open unlimited 4WD racing as 500 horse power vehicles, and UTVs race on seemingly impossible obstacles.

Its the perfect way for off-road fans to watch the fury vehicles capable of traversing almost any obstacle from the comfort and safety of the grandstands. Walk the pits and get up close and personal with the teams at HellsGate.Race Classes include: Sportsman Class, UTV Class, Unlimited Class
DownHill Deathbox Derby: Spectators will enjoy the thrills and spills of unlimited gravity racing on the steep dirt hills of the Wild West Motorsports Park. Derby contestants can let their imagination go wild and create something out of junk that was laying around, but all vehicles must be gravity powered only. Races will take place between the main event off-road races during the HellsGate Grandprix and are limited to 24 teams. If you are intersted in entering your own vehicle, click here.
