The Martelli Brothers have formed a new desert racing series called “Unlimited Off-Road Racing.” The series will have three races including the Parker 400 in Parker, Arizona, Mint 400 in Las Vegas, Nevada and California 300 in Barstow, California. All events will host youth, UTV’s, motorcycles, cars and trucks. The series will begin with the Parker 400 in January 2024.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be announcing this new league and championship points series,” said Unlimited Off-Road Racing CEO and Co-Owner Matt Martelli. “The Parker 400 is one of the oldest and most historic races in our sport and we’re excited to have that become part of our calendar as we take yet another massive step forward in our league’s development. We’re preparing to take the same assets and marketing power that we have used to make The Mint 400 the biggest spectacle in the sport and apply that to our entire league. Racers, partners, and fans can expect us to deliver the best experience, media coverage and value in the industry as we continue to grow and expand our offering. That includes industry leading production from our team at Mad Media, live stream team, and events group.”
A UTV World Championship will be determined by points at all three events. The Parker 400 started in 1971, then called the Dam 500 created by the Parker Dam Chamber of Commerce. Previous sanctioning bodies of the Parker race have included NORRA, SCORE and Best in the Desert.
