MORE2009 Powder Puff Desert Race
Barstow, California

October 10, 2009

Ok, if you’re a desert rat you’ll get what I’m talking about…if not, check it out – here’s a crash course! Desert racing is a completely different sport from your pavement races and dirt track events. Most think Baja now for longer races, mostly due to BLM and land issues.

There are still some US desert races that run a longer race loop such as SCORE’s Primm 300 and BitD’s mega-sweet Parker & Vegas to Reno events in Nevada and Arizona. But, travel and entry fees are much on everyone’s minds going racing.

As today’s economy has dictated where racers go race – long time “smaller” promoters like MORE, MDR, SNORE have continued to see good car counts and are absolutely great venues for good old fashioned, grassroots racing. Following the “best bang for your buck” idea, these are the events you need to try!

This year’s MORE Powder Puff race is an excellent example. With a sea of pink crew shirts and race car paint schemes excited ladies only drivers and co-riders showed up in anything and everything they could borrow, beg or…well, you know just to make the race.

Very much a family affair, off-roaders have always had a big heart and love their sport. Benefiting the Cedar Sinai Women’s Cancer Research Center - moms, sisters and daughters wore the fire suits, helmets and gloves today. The guys did the crewing duties for the weekend!
