LS Fest West event staff are pleased to team up with Nitto Tire to bring the LS Fest West Off Road Challenge to Las Vegas Motor Speedway May 5-7. The Nitto Tire team is not unfamiliar with operating off of the beaten path. Team Nitto Tire dominated the 2017 King of the Hammers event and completed the event with a podium sweep! Shannon Campbell, Wayland Campbell and Jason Scherer took the top three spots running the Trail Grappler M/T which helped them successfully navigate through the toughest terrain on the planet. Whether you’re looking for high performance on road or off-road performance, Nitto Tire has a solution for you. Check out what they have to offer at the following on their site here.
For the first time in LS Fest history, an off-road component is being offered. The off road challenge is comprised of classes for trucks as well as buggies. Vehicles in each class will compete side-by-side on identical short courses in a race down and back with various obstacles. The track will be set up by none other than the crew at Ultra 4 Racing, creators of King Of The Hammers! Each truck will be required to make qualifying runs on both of the identical courses. Their qualifying time will be an average of both courses. Then, drag race style eliminations will take place. Lane choice goes to the truck with the lowest average. The truck that wins head to head will advance. Time does not matter in eliminations. The only goal is to beat the truck beside you back across the line! One buy back will be allowed. Ian Johnson and the crew from Xtreme Off-Road will be on hand to capture the action to air on Spike TV!
