Southern Nevada enthusiasts has been forced to cancel the Weddle Industries Caliente 250 due to permit issues. The race was scheduled for June 4th – 5th in Caliente, Nevada. The Caliente BLM office only allows two truck/car races each year. With permit applications from three from three different race series, a drawing was held. The BLM worked with SNORE to move one of the competing series permits over to the Tonopah office because their race did not come close to town of Caliente and very little of the race course was actually in the Caliente BLM area boundaries.
The decision was ultimately left to the Ely district manager who denied SNORE’s request to hold the Caliente 250 race, forcing the series to cancel the event.
