2nd Annual Baja Designs UTV Night Race Set to Start the Action

LAS VEGAS, NV (October 2, 2019) –Best In The Desert, the largest off-road racing series in North America, announced today the Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic Presented by Jimco is in the final stages of preparation as the off-road racing community begins to converge on Laughlin with four action-packed days of racing. Over 215 race vehicles have pre-entered the event with a huge contingent of UTV’s set to take on the 2nd Annual Baja Designs UTV Night Race. Last year’s Baja Designs UTV Night Race was an absolute home run with close to 100 entrants and well over 200 racers participating. In addition, a large contingent of competitors is expected for the FabTech Laughlin Leap which will be broken down into classes this year with a minimum of two entries to form a class.

“The Laughlin Desert Classic is one of our most exciting events of the year and what better way to kick off the four days of fun and racing than with the Baja Designs UTV Night Race,” commented Best In The Desert Race Operations Manager Donald Jackson. “Last year’s, race introduced a whole new group of racers to the thrill and excitement of racing at night, and we expect this year to be no different. We can’t wait to see the final showdown of the “best of the best” as they compete head to head in this final event for 2019 and earn the title as UTV class champions,” said Donald.

Baja Designs is synonymous with off-road racing and having fun at night,” said Baja Designs Marketing Mgr Jessica Tiller. “We are pumped to be the title sponsor of the UTV Night Race for the second straight year and can’t wait to get the action started on Thursday night, Oct 10th. We invite everyone to come out and join in the fun. Be sure to stop by our display at the Event Expo on Thursday and Friday, Oct 10th-11th and see all the great products from Baja Designs.”

The Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Classic Presented by Jimco takes place Oct 10th – 13th, 2019 in Laughlin, Nevada. With series championships up for grabs and over 215 vehicles already pre-entered, it’s sure to be a great race for all who enter.
