Hello all! We are three weeks away from the long awaited Whiplash Off Road Racing - Penasco 300! Here is all the info!
The Penasco 300 -
Entry Fees are as follows;
Pro truck and buggy - $500
Sportsman Truck and buggy - $300

This race is open to all car and truck classes including pre-runners, motorcycles, atv's and utv's! If you have a safe car or truck and want to race, we'll tech it and if it passes you are in!
The course is 2 - 150 mile laps. Starting and finishing in Puerto Penasco, Mexico.
There are pits at RM 32, RM 45, RM 65, RM 105, RM 120 and 150!
The course is fast and sandy for 32 miles, then rocky and hard packed but slower and technical to 70, then hard packed and fast to 100 more technical to 120, then sandy and fast to 150. My guess is 4 hour lap times for TT's, 1's and 10's. More like 6hours for the other classes. Bring your light because we are going into the night!
