Terrible's Town "250"
"The Richest Off-Road Race in Nevada"

Las Vegas, Nevada - The third event of the 2002 "Silver State Series", the Terrible's Town "250", will be held April 5, 6, 7, 2002, in Pahrump, Nevada, promoted by Best In The Desert Racing Association and hosted by Terrible's Town Casino. A $40,000 guaranteed total purse makes this "The Richest Off-Road Race in Nevada."

The Terrible's Town "250" is a 250-mile loop race which will start and finish in Pahrump, Nevada, located 60 miles Northwest of Las Vegas on Highway 160. The event will feature a full array of off-road vehicles, which include, Motorcycles, Quads, Cars and Trucks. Best In The Desert Director Casey Folks says, "This is the fifth year of the Terrible's Town "250" and I expect a record number of Car and Truck entries racing for the additional $40,000. The Terrible's Town "250" has also been chosen by the Pro Dirt group and will bring over twenty 1500 Class cars to the race. I also expect over 100 Motorcycle and Quad teams of the top factory teams to be racing. This is a big, big race, which is growing in popularity every year, in fact, I expect the 2002 "Silver State Series" racing year to be bigger than ever! Remember, life is an adventure and your adventure starts at the Terrible's Town "250"."

Jerry, Ed, Troy, and Tim Herbst, who all love the sport of off-road racing, make a special contribution to this event by sponsoring a big after-race "Western Barbecue" celebration in the parking lot of their Terrible's Town Casino. After a hard day of racing, it's a great way to finish the day; eating barbecue chicken and watching the racers come in! The Awards Presentation will be held on Sunday at the Lakeside Terribles's, which was voted in the top 100 most beautiful RV Parks in the country. Folks says, "We could not of had a more beautiful setting for the awards last year, I can't wait to go back!"
