    Hello, I'm interested in off-road truck racing. Realistically I can't afford to just go out and build my own truck for racing over night but I want to learn more. Learn about where they even hold off road races. I'd like to go to a few events and watch, and maybe a little info on how these people even get started in off-road truck racing.

    a majority of desert races happen in california, nevada, and arizona state side. or go to mexico for the baja 500 and 100.

    it is very expensive to build a truck and go race. most people can't afford it. trophy trucks are about $500k if I'm not mistaken, however there are a lot of other classes you can race.

    not sure if this will open, but look here for the classes and rules. some classes are limited to whats allowed in a truck. BITD and SCORE is who you look up for info on rules and fees.

    It is very expensive to just go out and race, usually you'll need a team for a pit crew, ton of spare parts, gas, tires ect.

    I know a company here in vegas, VORE, you can go rent one of their rangers, the price ranges from $8500-49,000 depending on the race, but that pays for the truck, gas, crew and everything else included. just show up and race.

    I drove the vote trucks and they're a ton of fun, expensive but fun.

    hope this helps a bit.

    Edit: Vore has a variety of packages, they have short course, desert trails or raptors you can drive. the $8500-49,000 is the cost for racing only. For example I did 30 miles in the desert (15 driving, 15 co-driving and 10 laps on the short course for $750.
