Offroad Camping Setups
Camping and off-roading go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. With the growing popularity of Overland-style off-roading (see What is Overlanding?), more and more outdoor adventure seekers are looking for ways to sleep in their rig. Some off-road enthusiasts can’t leave home without their Serta mattress and full size shower, while others take on a “less is more” approach to getting off the grid. Which of these off-road campers is more your style?

ENSENADA, Mexico — With the tenacity of a tiger, coupled with the dogged determination and diligent discipline he used to earn his bachelor’s degree last year at Clemson University while continuing a strong presence in the desert, SoCal’s Rafael Navarro IV has won the overall and Class 10 point championship of the four-race 2016 SCORE World Desert Championship.

A third-generation desert racer from Temecula, Calif., Navarro IV, just 23, drove the No. 1009 Chevy-power Alumi Craft open-wheel desert race car to second place finishes in all four races to earn 376 championship points to become the just the fourth racer from Class 10 (1655cc engines) and first in 20 years to earn the overall title for SCORE International, which is celebrating its 43rd year as the World’s Foremost Desert Racing Organization.

Trophy Truck Motocross
For the most part, Trophy Trucks are synonymous with high speeds and deep whoops.  You usually don’t picture them on tight, technical motocross-style tracks. However, the minds behind the Dirt Tour and 212 Land put on one heck of an event where they blended Trophy Trucks and a motocross track. By the looks of things, the truck drivers were right at home.
