Exciting New Course For 08 Features Grand Prix Infield Section.
The 2008 Hendersons FabTech Desert Classic race format is going to be totally different from the last four years. The race will still start in the same location on private property out in the Eldorado Valley, 15 miles from downtown Henderson, but will feature a brand new grand prix course in the infield. The infield will offer a great place for spectators, where you can watch racing all day long. The new, fun and challenging race course will be about 55 miles in length and all race vehicles will be racing on the same exciting course. There will be one large pit area for everyone, with the exciting infield track in the middle, and will no longer be two separate pit areas for motorcycle/quad/utvs and car/trucks,
The new format will be running three separate races. The first race will start at 6:30 am with the motorcycles, quads and UTVs starting and racing. The 2nd race and 3rd race start times are approximate depending on the time the previous race vehicles reach a certain mile marker and it is safe to start the next race. Below are the class divisions and time designations:
1st Race 6:30 am Motorcycle, Quads & UTVs The motorcycles and quads will race around an approximate 55 mile loop four times, with a grand prix finish. The UTVs will race around the approximate 55 mile loop two times with a grand prix finish.
