Maxxis Offers Over $300K in Best in the Desert Contingencies
Less than a month after announcing its title sponsorship of the Best in the Desert Maxxis Triple Crown and Best in the Desert Maxxis Vegas to Reno, Maxxis Offers Over $300K in Best in the Desert Contingencies. The company is offering a total of $333,000 in cash for Best in the Desert in 2020, while reducing by half the number of entries required for race eligibility.
In all UTV classes, riders finishing first will take home $1,500, with second place riders pocketing $1,000 and third-place finishers receiving $500. Maxxis is also offering a $500 bonus for first place in each of the Maxxis Triple Crown races, along with a $5000 bonus to winners of the series championship who ride Maxxis tires in all race rounds.
For light truck drivers, contingencies will be offered for the 4400, 6100, 7100, 7200, 7300 and 8100 classes. Drivers can win $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place and $300 for third place. Within the specified classes, an additional $500 will be awarded for first place in each Maxxis Triple Crown race and a $5,000 bonus is available to winners of the series championship who use Maxxis tires in all race rounds.
In 14 motorcycle classes and three quad classes, contingencies ranging from $500 to $50 will be available to first, second and third place winners in each race of the season.
Among other eligibility requirements for these contingencies, racers must run Maxxis tires from start to finish, including spares, and must affix two specified Maxxis decals to their vehicles, visible from both the left and the right. Other rules and conditions apply, and complete information is available at maxxis.com/bitd-contingency.
Maxxis announced in December that it will be the title sponsor of this year’s inaugural Best in the Desert Triple Crown races and will also serve as the title sponsor for Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno. The Maxxis Triple Crown, which is actually comprised of four events, will feature three races each for ATV, UTV, motorcycle, car, and truck classes. The program kicks off January 10-11 with the Tensor Tire Parker 250 presented by Polaris, followed January 23-26 by the Bluewater Parker 425 presented by JIMCO. The Maxxis Casey Folks Vegas to Reno, the largest single-day off-road race in America, is scheduled for August 12-15, and the Maxxis Triple Crown concludes with the Bluewater Desert Challenge October 22-25.
