UTV’s & NITROCROSS RETURN TO PHOENIX THIS WEEKEND
The course at Wild Horse Motorsports park will feature a new infield section, now with a banked Talladega turn, plus two swichbacks. Nitrocross’ trademark jumps will be reprofiled as well, letting drivers – especially those piloting the 1,000+ hp-equivalent all-electric Group E cars – send it even bigger across ever longer distances. There will also be a new Joker lane along with more tarmac in the upgraded outer section. Along with the Rally cars, high-performance UTV’s rocketed by 900cc turbo charged engines, will offer even more high adrenaline excitement, along with a special class of classic Baja Bugs desert racers,
More Full-Throttle Thrills:
In addition to Group E, Phoenix fans will see rising star Lia Block, daughter of the late Ken Block, as a younger generation gets ready to step up in NEXT, Nitrocross’ developmental class. Lia is already making a name for herself: she also competes in Extreme E, drove in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb and is an ARA titleholder. But she has her sights set on winning a trophy in Phoenix.
Racing enthusiasts can stay at Wild Horse Pass overnight to make it a full weekend event: RV camping parking passes are available for purchase.
