This is a big, big race, which is growing in popularity every year, in fact, I expect the 2001 "Silver State Series" racing year to be bigger than ever!

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.
