BITD Parker 425

February 1, 2018 - February 4, 2018

Dear Off-Road Enthusiasts:
In the world we live in there are good off-road desert races, there are great
off-road desert races and then there are LEGENDS. Well, the BlueWater
Resort & Casino Parker “425” presented by IMPACT is just that, a legend
in off-road desert racing ~ “THE LEGEND LIVES ON!” The Parker
Legend started in 1972, known as the Norra Dam “500”, then in 1974 as the
Parker “400” and grew to become a legend in off-road desert racing. The
Best In The Desert is keeping this great event alive, there’s no question about it, it’s better today and it’s a race you
don’t want to miss. There’s no better way to start your 2017 racing season then with the BlueWater Resort &
Casino Parker “425”presented by IMPACT , “The Legend Lives On!”

The BlueWater Resort & Casino Parker “425”presented by IMPACT no doubt stands alone as one of everyone’s
favorite races of “The American Off-Road Racing Series!” All year long this is what we hear from racers,
“Parker is my favorite race” “Parker is the best race going.” “I love going to Parker.” The lure of the challenge, as
well as the excitement of this great legend in off-road races is attracting interest from all over the United States, it
is attracting those who are looking for a true “American Off-Road Adventure!” If you like off-road adventure, if
you would like to race on an exciting off-road racecourse, if you like long distance off-road racing, then you
MUST come and participate in the BlueWater Resort & Casino Parker “425” presented by IMPACT. Even the
unprecedented rain we had for the 2009 Parker “425” was an adventure; not many of us had been caught in a
downpour like that before, it was unbelievable! Ok, maybe some more rain in 2010 and 2011 but that didn’t last as
long. You have a 50/50 shot of a wet course, the good news maybe “no dust!”

The BlueWater Resort & Casino Parker “425”presented by IMPACT will be a high caliber gathering of off-road
racing’s best, to test their off-road racing skills against the many unforeseen challenges the beautiful Arizona
terrain has to offer. If you like exciting off-road races, and you want to be a part of a legend, then enter the
BlueWater Resort & Casino Parker “425” presented by IMPACT. Make no mistakes about it, the BlueWater
Resort & Casino Parker “425” is not your typical garden-variety weekend race! It begins on Thursday, February 2,
with an exciting “Time Trial” event, which determines Top starting positions for Trick Trucks, Class 1500 & Class
6100 only. After the Time Trials we will have a SHOW & SHINE at the Downtown Parker Experience. The
Time Trial vehicles will be on display downtown and then escorted back to the Main Pit Area.

You will again run the exciting PARKER PYTHON! The Python will be a rough section of jumps in front of
thousands of cheering spectators. The Python will be modified a bit this year and you have two chances to test
your skills against the Parker Python! The BlueWater Resort & Casino Parker “425” has something for
everyone; The beautiful backdrop of the Colorado River, Time Trials, Race Legends, the Parker Python, the
beautiful BlueWater Resort & Casino, Shea Road Spectating Area, and the exciting long distance, off-road race
challenge, the BlueWater Resort Parker “425”! The 2018 BlueWater Parker “425” presented by IMPACT is a
Who’s Who in off-road racing! Don’t miss it!

I leave you with this thought! Life is too short! Take advantage of this opportunity and start making your
plans now to be a part of the BlueWater Resort & Casino Parker “425”presented by IMPACT! This is my
personal invitation to come join me for the start of the most awesome 2018 year in racing! I look forward to
