THE DESERT RACE

The Wild West of Motorcycle Racing!!!!!

The Revival House presents this genuine grassroots event including good 'ole scramblers, motocross and sprints all under the umbrella of desert racing. The Desert Race is an alternative motorcycling festival that encourages a diverse blend of motorcycle fans, motocross racers, beginners and pros, custom bike builders, speed shops with legendary history, fans of 2 wheels or 4, and weekend race fans from all around the world. Regardless if a racer wins or loses by a mile, we hope that all racers leave with a sense of accomplishment. Our core culture believes in an equal and free inclusive enviroment that encourages and shows support. Honestly, we're all just happy to have a place to share our mutual love for motos & autos.

Yes, racing is at the heart of this event. To ensure The Desert Race differs in each state's race, Oregon for example will provide a different type of excitement than the previous race held in Joshua Tree, California. Our mission is to ensure that each stage differs and brings a different set of techniques and tricks of the trade into play, but also ensures each racer a fair chance of capturing the glory. With many classes available ranging from beginner to advanced, there is a class available for every type of motorcycle and rider.  The Desert Race takes place on a well marked, high-adrenaline, loose-surface, approx. 4-5 bike width tract that includes turns, ruts, berms, potential jumps. Terrain includes dirt, sand, and rocks. No need to jump unless you feel you can safely do so. This style of racing is exciting race to in, and also provides nail biting entertaining to watch. 

The Desert Race series provides this without the hassle, rules, and costs usually associated with professional motorsport racing. 

The race location is near the national monument, Fort Rock. Nestled in Lake County in the Oregon High Desert region also known as "the Oregon Outback". You can sense the wild adventures that some of our ancestors embarked on in this rough and tough terrain.  We wanted to ensure the location was special for a fun festival of speed. The music, the food and retail vendors are lining up to ensure adequate presence to help ensure attendees and race fans alike are well entertained.

Plus,  The Super Cretin racers are itching to get their desert sleds sideways.. don't miss out on this uniqe grassroot race action!
