BITD 2006: Terrible’s Town "250" - the richest race in Nevada.

The exciting 2006 "Silver State Series", Terrible’s Town "250", will be held April 28 - 30, 2006, in Pahrump, Nevada, promoted by Best In The Desert Racing Association and hosted by Terrible’s Town Casino. The Terrible’s Town "250" is a 250-mile loop race which will start and finish in Pahrump, Nevada, located 60 miles Northwest of Las Vegas on Highway 160. The event will feature a full array of off-road vehicles, which include, Motorcycles, Quads, Cars and Trucks. Best In The Desert Director Casey Folks says, "This is the eighth year of the Terrible’s Town "250" and I expect a record number of Car and Truck entries racing for the additional $40,000. I also expect over 100 Motorcycle and Quad teams of the top factory teams to be racing for the incredible $5,000 in prize money! This is a big, big event, which is growing in popularity every year, in fact, I expect the 2006 "Silver State Series" racing year to be bigger than ever! Remember, life is an adventure and your adventure continues at the Terrible’s Town "250".

Jerry, Ed, Tim, and Troy Herbst, who all love the sport of off-road racing, make a special contribution to this event by sponsoring a big after-race "Western Barbecue" celebration in the parking lot of their Terrible’s Town Casino. After a hard day of racing, it’s a great way to finish the day; eating barbecue chicken and watching the racers come in! The Awards Presentation will be held on Sunday at the Terrible’s Lakeside Casino & RV Park, which was voted in the top 100 most beautiful RV Parks in the country. Folks says, "We could not of had a more beautiful setting for the awards last year, I can’t wait to go back!" There will also be a free fireworks show Friday night at the Terrible’s Lakeside by the beautiful lake.

The 2005 "Silver State Series" Car and Truck winners, winning 1st in the 1500 Professional Class and 1st overall were Pat Dean and Shane Robinson, driving a Bunderson, in 4:02:40, and Brian Collins and Larry Ragland, driving a Chevy Trick Truck, won 1st in the 1400 Trick Truck Class, in 4:11:09.
