Remember, there are no membership fees, gate fees or camping fees. Bring out the family and enjoy an exciting weekend with autumn weather in the desert!

On Sunday morning, the nation’s toughest and fastest off-road racers will line up on the Zip-Ty starting line for two loops of sweet desert terrain: one 32-mile loop, then a 37-mile loop to the KTM finish line.

Although Purvines Yamaha DA8’s Gary Sutherlin took the overall championship title at round eight, second and third in the championship are yet to be decided. FMF KTM’s Taylor Robert sits 14 points ahead of Sutherlin’s teammate Axel Pearson, who sits just nine points ahead of 2016 champion and JCR Honda rider Ricky Brabec. Precision Concepts’ Justin Morgan and Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Jacob Argubright round off what will ultimately prove as an exciting season battle among the top five.

Like the Pro class, in the FMF Pro 250cc class, Chidester Transport Racing’s Tyler Lynn wrapped up the championship one round early, but second and third are still undecided, and it’s a battle between Braydon Bland and Nick Tolman.

In the Pro ATV class, Colt Brinkerhoff sits 14 points ahead of Chris Peatross, who sits just four points ahead of Jose Torres.
