The Red Desert Baja race is back! A few years ago I created the Red Desert Baja course. It is a tough track with jumps, bumps, and multiple surfaces. This is a one of a kind race on a one of a kind track that you definitely don't want to miss!

Scoring and Winning
First there will be a time trial. Each car will have 5 runs. The fastest 16 cars will qualify for a head to head bracket. The winner of the bracket will be the Red Desert Baja Champ. If 16 cars are unable to finish the course during the time trials, the furthest distance each car was able to travel will be used to round out the 16 car bracket.
