Las Vegas’ Bone-Jarring Off-Road Race to Reno

Taking the boring jaunt from Las Vegas to Reno by car is a ho-hummer, requiring plenty of java to stay awake.  But if you want to really perk up, then consider competing in the longer off-road race – accompanied by plenty of bone-jarring terrain to keep you awake – 1,000 miles from Las Vegas to Reno. 

That’s what 300 off-road racers are doing this weekend in the Best in the West Desert Racing Association’s annual “Vegas to Reno the Long Way.”  The race started Thursday and is making the third and final leg from Hawthorne to Reno today. 

Typically, about 30 percent of the trucks and motorcycles don’t make the finish line.
