Best in the Desert has been forced to cancel the upcoming Parker 425 and 250 originally set for the beginning of January in Parker, Arizona. The series has not released official details for the cancellation, but the industry buzz is Best in the Desert had some permit issues. The race is run on BLM managed land in Parker.
“At Best In The Desert, we strive to deliver off-road races that are the pinnacle of our sport’s racing experience and have done so since 1984. Due to circumstances that surfaced, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Parker 250 and Parker 425. These two Parker AZ races are set to reconvene in 2024, at a date to be announced,” said Bryan Folks, co-owner and CMO of Best in the Desert.
Best in Desert’s February World Hare & Hound event will be renamed as the Golden State 250 to allow car and truck classes to race the event. The location for the Golden State 250 has not yet been named. Race dates are set for February 17th-19th. Best in the Desert is offering full refunds for racers who have already registered to race the Parker event.
