Rob-mac-bitd-off-road-4-29-13The Canidae Tap It Silver State “300” scheduled for May 3-5, 2013, is a race rich in Eastern Nevada’s most scenic high desert beauty and history.  The 300-mile single loop race course starts 15 miles north of Alamo and features a mixture of high-desert mountains, sand-washes, and awesome panoramic views. It crosses through the vast cattle ranching pastures, past towns where railroading was the primary way of life in the late 1800s, and through the mountains where some of the wildest gold and silver mining camps in the West were located in the 1870s.  The Canidae Tap It Silver State “300” gives racers an opportunity to go back in time and experience what it might have been like to live as a cattle rancher, a miner or a railroad man.  However, there won’t be much time for taking in the spectacular sights of the surrounding landscape, as the course is a fast one that demands 100% of the racers’ attention.  The 2012 event turned into a 300-mile long drag race where the top three finishers were separated by a mere 34-seconds. This is not only a great race to experience, but also a great event to bring the entire family to. Best In The Desert racing is about creating memories and the Canidae Tap It Silver State “300” will definitely live up to your wildest expectations.  The Canidae Tap It Silver State “300” is a grand event, not just another great desert race!
