jeepspeed_bitd_5-13-13Alamo, NV – After the pounding everyone took at the brutally tough Mint 400, Jeepspeed racers headed north for the Best in the Desert Silver State 300. The Silver State race uses a point to point course through the hills and valleys of Northern Nevada. Held mostly on fast fire roads, there is hardly a whoop the entire way. It gave competitors a chance to open up their Jeepspeeds for some high speed running. When the course is rough and technical truck set-up and a driver’s ability to push the limits without breaking determine the winner. When the course is fast, everyone is fast. With higher speeds, any mistake is amplified. An excursion off course put you in rocks and trees or off a cliff on a majority of the 300 miles run. Thick dust caused by trucks running nose to tail at full speed hung over the course making it difficult to overtake. Jeeps that made it through the mountains, the river crossings and the long flat valleys still had to navigate miles of deep powdered silt that can swallow a truck in seconds.

14 Jeeps lined up for the General Tire Jeepspeed Challenge presented by ATX Series Wheels, (6 cylinder Jeep SUVs with limited modifications). In the General Tire Jeepspeed Cup presented by ATX Series Wheels, (open class for Jeep, Dodge, & Mopar SUVs/Trucks) it was a dogfight between Brandon Berge and Bob Mamer. Bob was off the line first followed by Brandon 30 seconds later. Bob Mamer has had a lock on the competition in the Jeepspeed Cup winning the first two races of the season. Brandon was 4th at the season opener then 3rd at the Mint; he was looking forward to his duel with the points leader Mr. Mamer.

TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH (September 19, 2012) — The Ultra4 American Rock Sports Challenge returns to Miller Motorsports Park this Friday and Saturday, September 21-22, bringing one of the most unique off-road events ever seen in Utah back for a second consecutive year.

Ultra4 Racing grew out of a now-legendary off-road race called King of the Hammers, which was the result of a bet six years ago that culminated in a race for bragging rights and a case of beer among 13 friends. The King of the Hammers, held annually in Johnson Valley, California, combines two of the most popular forms of off-roading – rock-crawling and high-speed off-road racing. That one epic race has now resulted in the Ultra4 Pro Racing Series, a three-race championship that includes the Ultra4 American Rock Sports Challenge at Miller Motorsports Park.

Several existing dirt roads in the Big Bear, California, area were recently targeted for closure. Watershed is the issue, although Don Alexander of Backcountry 4×4 points out that snowmaking at the local ski area is responsible for infinitely more silt runoff into Big Bear Lake than recreational motorized travel.

We received an email from industry friends pertaining to this matter, and wish to make our readers aware of what’s going on in the San Bernardino Mountains.

If these trails are closed, it will impact off-road travel and use for OHV, Jeeps and 4x4s in the Big Bear and Holcomb Valley regions.

The immensely popular Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012. With thousands of off-road enthusiasts traveling to Southern California for the weekend of wheeling and fun. The Tierra Del Sol event was put on by the 4-Wheel Drive Club of San Diego, and aside from the packed vendor area and the massive raffle on Saturday night, the event was a giant success. Even the new off-road park was abuzz with off-roaders testing their new rigs, setups, or trying to tackle some of the more challenging obstacles.

Aside from all the events at the main base camp, trails were packed with Jeeps, trucks, side-by-sides and even the occasional dirt bike. Off-Road.com was on hand to capture some of the action. Check out this video with a few highlights from a perfect off-roading in Southern California.

The 2011 SEMA Show has come and gone, but the drooling over amazing cars, trucks, Jeeps, part and girls continues.

The industry-only SEMA Show always highlights some of the newest and coolest products available – or ones not yet on the market. The project vehicles are amazing and/or border on ridiculous, and there’s no shortage of concept cars, jaw-dropping paint jobs or beautiful women to catch your attention.

The off-road market looked especially strong at SEMA this year, taking up quite a bit of real estate on the show floor. The new JK Jeep Wrangler was all over the show floor, but so were project builds of Toyota Tundras and Tacomas, Ford F-150s and Broncos, Dodge Rams, Chevys and more.

About ECORS
Founded in 2009, the East Coast Offroad Series (ECORS, www.ecors.com) was developed by Rob Klinger of North Carolina and Ron Towery of South Carolina as an offroad race series for 4×4 enthusiasts in the Southeast US. Currently there are 4 classes of vehicles that qualify to race in ECORS events. Class A (“stock” type 4×4 vehicles), Class B (“modified” 4×4 vehicles), Class C (“unlimited” custom, built 4×4 buggies or extremely modified production vehicles), and Class U (UTV/SxS vehicles).

For the 2011 Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep and Mopar introduced a number of Jeeps and Dodge Ram trucks utilizing Mopar’s performance parts. Of the new vehicles and kits, one of the most eye-catching is the new Wrangler JK-8 Independence Kits. This kit, which will be available July 4th to coincide with Independence Day, allows owners of newer four-door Wranglers to update their vehicle to a truck-like Jeep with an open truck bed.

The concept was partially born out of a vehicle the Mopar Underground team built for last year’s EJS event as an updated version of the Kaiser called the Nukizer 715.
