With one of the wettest winters in recent memory, the course conditions should be ideal for racing fast and furious. With almost all of the top motorcycle, quad and UTV teams attending with a fresh start to the season, the Tensor Tire Parker “250” Presented By Polaris should deliver some of the best action of the year. Where else can you race right alongside the mighty Colorado River?

The Tensor Tire Parker “250” Presented By Polaris is also the kick-off event for motorcycle, quad and UTV of the newly formed Maxxis Triple Crown, which also includes the Maxxis “Casey Folks” Vegas to Reno race August 12-15, and the BlueWater Desert Challenge October 22-25.
