Laughlin, NV
– Racers, sponsors, promoters, their families, and friends, all put in hard work to participate in off-road racing. Many of us love the beauty and stark isolation found in the remote desert but we all know those who prefer the comfort and luxury of a resort like the Golden Nugget in Laughlin. That’s why events like the Best In The Desert series Laughlin Desert Classic (LDC) in Laughlin, Nevada, have a full range of fun happenings in addition to competitive racing. The LDC had something for everyone; tough desert competition and great amenities only steps away. It’s no surprise that so many were excited to hear the Best In The Desert series was coming to Laughlin.
