Napier-Tent-Norra-3-24-2017

Agua Dulce, Calif.: Napier tents will be used by the NORRA Mexican 1000 crew during the 50th anniversary of the rally in 2017. NORRA crew members spend long hours in the desert scouting the course and providing assistance during the rally stages. Napier tents allow them to set up camp in minutes if need be, and begin relaxing after a long day. The NORRA crew puts in a lot of work, but it’s worth it. “The Happiest Race On Earth!” is entirely about having fun and creating memories that will last a lifetime. NORRA participants experience the most stunningly beautiful Baja scenery as they make their way down the entire length of the Baja Peninsula. After each day of racing, they have enough free time to experience a different location in Baja with friends and family. Each overnight stop has its own unique charm and character.

UTV Inc owner and truck racer Johnny Angal has all the toys and apparently a pretty epic commute to work. I guess it’s a good thing he drives a Ford Raptor prerunner. Check out this crazy video below.

BlueRibbon-Coalition-NEW-Logo-6-21-16Editor’s Note: The BlueRibbon Coalition sent out a note regarding the current battle over OHV access in California. See the details and notes on what you can do to help below.

BRC believes one of the most critical access issues in 2017 is for CA OHV recreationists to engage in the battle to reauthorize the current OHV program (SB742). This is a very complex legislative process. The fight will occur in stages over the next few months.  Anti-access groups are hard at work to gut the current program via introduction of SB 249. (Thanks for sending in your “oppose” SB 249 letters in Phase One!!!)
