The Nevada Rally Experience
Scot Harden and Casey Folks recently announced they will be hosting The Nevada Rally Experience (NRE), a two-day non-competitive GPS and Roadbook style Rally limited to a small group of 50 rally enthusiasts.
Scheduled for October 22, 23 and 24, 2004, the NRE re-traces the route of the only marathon raid rally event ever held in the United States, the Nevada Rally (promoted by Acerbis and Best in the Desert from 1993-1995). Entrants will be provided a Roadbook and GPS route to navigate the stage.
For its first year, the NRE revisits Stage One of the 1993 Nevada Rally from Mesquite to Pioche, Nevada. It’s a looped event with return to Mesquite at the end of Day 2. The length of the course each day will be approximately 150 miles.
Folks has over 40 years of experience promoting off road events through his world famous organization, Best in the Desert. Through his company, Harden-Offroad, Harden conducts adventure camps off-road riding schools where he trains everyone from beginners to the most experienced riders in the art and science of on and off road adventure riding.
“We’ve designed the Nevada Rally Experience to be as close to competing in an actual “marathon” Raid Rally event as you’ll find anywhere this side of Dakar,” said Harden, who separately serves as vice president of media relations for KTM North America.
