2023 Legacy Racing Schedule

Legacy Racing Association is excited to continue our efforts at providing Amazing Events. We have been exploring new locations and old racecourses that haven’t been used for decades. 15 years of laying out racecourses with the best teacher, helps to make for the most epic events. The 2022 Vision Wheel Baja Nevada proved to be just that. With new ideas, 2023 will turn out to be even more exciting.

Our first event of the year will be our Desert Showdown January 25-29th. We are starting out a little later in January, as we know that prepping for an event through the holidays can be extra stressful. Our Desert Showdown event will be held again in Pahrump, Nevada with the Pahrump Nugget as the returning Host Hotel. After two years of being asked, we have decided to invite the Motorcycles and Quads to the 2023 event. This event will have a pre-run on Thursday, just like previous years. We love being able to do these pre-runs and sharing the race experience with your family and teams.
New for this season, we will be headed to Caliente. The Caliente Field office only allows two four-wheel permitted events per year and there is a lottery for those two spots. We were excited to draw one of the permits for 2023. There is limitless opportunity for different trails in the area, and it will be like no other event in the area. Pre-Event festivities will start in Las Vegas. The Start line will be north of Las Vegas with the finish taking place right there in the Town of Caliente. This 325 mile course will cover new terrain. The VT Construction Battleground will be March 23- 26th for all classes.

ET

The 2023 Vision Wheel Baja Nevada will continue to be the talk of the industry, taking on new challenges as we push to make it the premier event. This being the biggest event for the Legacy Schedule, the 650 mile course will be a 2 day race format with an overnight stop half way through the race. It will challenge both Racer and Machine to push the limits and take home the bragging rights of finishing this epic event. Moving this event back to May, we are excited to see how it evolves. Make sure to save these dates May 10-14th.
We are pretty excited about our UTV Freedom ride and we think you guys will also. We are permanently adding the UTV freedom ride onto our schedule. With so many destinations to explore the possibilities are endless. This Multi Day ride doesn’t have a destination yet, but this event will create memories that will last a lifetime. Make sure to mark your calendars for June 23-25th. Bring the entire crew and enjoy getting dirty in a UTV.

The Dirt Rebelution has made its way back onto our schedule. The racers loved this challenging course in southern Utah. This technical and fast paced event is a great mixture to show the talent of each racer and the ability of their machines, perfect for Motorcycles, Quads and UTVs. Moving to September 8-10th will be ideal as the weather in southern Utah will be incredible. This event will continue to grow as participants fall in love with the spectacular course.
We are excited to add the Gold Rush to our 2023 schedule. We were just as bummed as each of you when we had to postpone this event. We are excited that VORRA has agreed to partner with us for this amazing course that will start in Virginia City and end in Tonopah. As anticipated, this event will be like none other. Bringing our event to Virginia City in October will make for great ghost hunting and ghoulish stories. This 350 mile course is sure to be a hidden treasure while teams challenge themselves for the Gold.

We love shaking things up and this event will be no different. Our final event of the season will take us back to Primm for The Stateline Shootout, but this year it will take on its own new twist. We are taking on 3 different styles of racing in one event. We are bringing: Desert Racing, Short course, and short track racing all in the same weekend. This event will challenge every participant. Join us November 30 – December 3rd for what is to be a fun filled weekend with your families and teams. We plan on finishing off our season with a bang!

We can’t wait for what 2023 has to offer. With new events, exciting ideas, and keeping the tried and true, we hope to have a very successful season. We want to thank each and every one for supporting us and helping us achieve our dreams. We are surrounded by the best, Our Partners, Staff, Participants and Volunteers. Without each of you our dreams would not be impossible. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Ernesto Araiza

Being born right in the heart of Off-Road Racing, Ernesto always had a dream to be an Off-Road Racer. After finish college he ditched his engineer career to chase the dream of action photographer. It didn't took long to get spotted by MadMedia where he still works. In less than 5 years after 'going pro' he reached some of the most important peaks in his life working for several international brands and events like the Rally Dakar. After 30 years of dreaming, he still have one goal in mind, to keep his face full of dust.
