BEST IN THE DESERT ANNOUNCES 2022 UTV SERIES

WHERE TO RIDE & RACE YOUR UTV: BITD 2022 6-RACE UTV SERIES

Best in the Desert announced ten races for its 2022 desert racing season, but only six include UTV classes. The Parker 250 UTV, ATV and bike event kicks off the season January 6th-8th, and the UTV Legends races at Laughlin move to cooler (2021 was 124 degrees!) February 17th-20th dates. Nevada’s Silver State 300 and Vegas-to-Reno takes us into summer, then the September Battle Born 200 in Ely, NV, replaces the September UTV Legends dates. UTVs and ATVs will also race the traditional bike World Hare & Hound November 4-6. UTV classes have been streamlined for 2022; see new rules at www.bitd.com.

Multi-time WORCS UTV and ATV champion Beau Baron has won the Adelanto GP on two wheels, beating last year’s promoter and multi-time AGP champ Ty Davis. The March 17-20 BiTD Adelanto GP is bike-only this year, but hopefully will include UTVs and ATVs in 2023.

BiTD is streamlining the current UTV classes, eliminating RS1s. Classes will be UTV Production Turbo (T901), NA Production (1801), Open (B901), Super Stock (S901), Sportsman Rally (R901) and Trophy Unlimited (2901). UTV Super Stock is two-seat only, while Production classes must have at least two seats. Only models that have a production run of at least 1000 units from Arctic Cat, Can-Am, Honda, Kawasaki, Polaris, and Yamaha are legal. Maximum tire size is 33×9.5-15. See www.bitd.com for more information. Oh, and Pros must be at least 14 years of age – call it the “Max Gordon Rule.”

UTVs will be new at the Battle Born 200 and World Hare & Hound finale.
