July 2nd ***NOTICE***
TSCO "Vegas to Reno" Course Change

For the past two days I have been dealing with some environmental issues that have come up regarding the 2008 TSCO “Vegas to Reno” event. There is a course change and I know this effects your race logistics (i.e. your pit plan, your rider changes, your fuel consumption) and I am very sorry for the inconvenience this is going to cause you. The most important thing is that you change your motel reservations for the Pre-Fun Run from Pahrump to Beatty. Please know I understand what a hassel this and I apologize. I think the most important thing is that this race continue and please click on READ MORE to read the full explanation of what has transpired and what to do next. For the race, we are still in Las Vegas at the South Point, we just have a longer transfer section to the start line. I have sent this letter to all the racers that have entered the race and the pre-fun run. I am working on the revised mileage and the Pit Mileage and Race Mileage will be posted on Tuesday, July 8. Again, I apologize. This letter is also posted under the "Vegas to Reno" file and is probably easier to read than on the home page. The Pre-Fun Run instructions and schedule has also been revised. News Flash, just got off the phone with the BLM and just got an additional 35-miles at the north end of the course, so this will help off-set some of the lost mileage. Click on read more...

Dear “Vegas to Reno” Participants: July 2, 2008
For the past two days I have been dealing with some environmental issues that have come up regarding the 2008 TSCO “Vegas to Reno” event. There is an issue with the Amargosa Toad, a small frog in the Amargosa area. The Center for Biological Diversity, just outside of Beatty, has challenged the Bureau of Land Management’s biological opinion document regarding the impact of the “Vegas to Reno” event on the Amargosa Toad. In order to continue the legacy of this challenging event, I have worked out with the BLM a new start area that will get me away from toad habitat. I am a person that never gives up and I believe the most important issue regarding the sport of off-road desert racing is that the 2008 TSCO “Vegas to Reno” event take place.

I am very sorry to those of you that will be inconvenienced by this course change. I know this makes things very difficult for you, but making the changes now will insure that we have a secure racecourse, one that cannot be challenged at the 11th hour with a court injunction.

The most important thing for you to do now is to change your hotel reservations for the pre-fun run and for the race. The overall course mileage will change and the race will now start North of Beatty on private property. You will need to cancel your room reservations in Pahrump and make reservations in Beatty. Beatty is approximately 125 miles north of the South Point Hotel in Las Vegas on US-95. We will announce the revised race mileage as soon as it is confirmed.

For the PRE-FUN RUN, cancel your rooms in Pahrump and make reservations in Beatty for Friday, August 1, 2008. We will still be staying in Tonopah on Saturday, August 2, 2008, so NO hotel rooms need to be changed in Tonopah.

For the RACE, I recommend you still stay at the South Point in Las Vegas and transfer to Beatty in the morning, or if you have rooms in Pahrump Thursday night, cancel those and make them for Beatty, Thursday, August 21, 2008. There are only 338 rooms available in Beatty, but actually they have more rooms than in Pahrump. Now, you can still stay in Pahrump Thursday night if you choose and that will save you 55 miles in the morning. However, we suggest taking US-95 North from Las Vegas to Beatty and not drive through Pahrump, US-95 is faster. Pahrump to Beatty is 73 miles.

Regarding your PIT LOGISTICS, I also realize most of you have laid out your logistics (i.e. pit plan, rider changes and fuel consumption) and again I apologize for this inconvenience. We are working hard in this office to re-work the pit book and we will have this information posted in a day or two, but we have lost pit’s 1, 2, & 3.

Again, I apologize for all of your inconvenience, your time and trouble that this is going to take to change all of your room reservations, but again, it is so important to have this race and not let the environmental community succeed in closing any more of our public lands. I appreciate your understanding and we will have updated information for you as soon as we can.
