After a long, tough year of COVID-19 precautions and regulations, the Jimco Racing Silver State 300 will mark the return of the Sunday awards. While social distancing and masks will still be encouraged, the Best In The Desert family is eager to celebrate with one another again especially with Nevada’s overall restrictions officially easing May 1, 2021. 

“We just returned from driving the Silver State 300 course, and all I can say is, what an awesome ride! This has always been one of my favorite racecourses, with a combination of fast roads, mountain trails, and sand washes. It can’t get any better; racers are in for a treat,” says Race Operations Manager Jeff Phillips.
