Las Vegas, Nevada – January 11, 2021

The BITD Parker “425”  Pre Run wrapped up over the weekend in Parker, Arizona after seeing huge crowds and a record number of vehicles. The two-day event saw 90 vehicles and 227 people participating in the Bluewater Parker “425” Pre Run on Saturday, January 9, 2021, and another 54 vehicles and 153 people on Sunday, January 10, 2021.

The event was an opportunity to get everyone excited for Best In The Desert’s 2021 season and allow new and veteran fans of offroad racing to experience driving a Best In The Desert racecourse. The Pre-Runs were led by Best In The Desert Race Operations Mgr Jeff Phillips who said, “We are so grateful for everyone who showed up. We are definitely starting 2021 on a high note. I’m particularly proud of how everyone behaved. I’ve never seen more camaraderie or sportsmanship exhibited at any of our events.”

“Everyone participating had a great time, excited to be part of the Pre-Fun Runs. There were no incidents or accidents to report, only a large number of happy, off-road enthusiasts who were also very respectful and cognizant of health mitigation efforts. Best In The Desert, its racers, fans, and the general public all complied with Bureau of Land Management (BLM) requirements including staying off the course at designated times and wearing masks whenever on BLM land”. 

Best In The Desert also wants to remind everyone that starting today and running through race weekend no pre-running is allowed on the racecourse. The racecourse is officially closed. Best In The Desert will have staff monitoring the racecourse between now and Friday and any racer or pit crew affiliated with any race team caught on the course will be disqualified.

The first race of the 2021 BITD season, is the Parker “425” which will run on January 13-16, 2021.
