The "RACE FOR CASH" Is Back In 2016!!!
- $2,000 Dollar Minimum Buy-In – Winner-Takes-All! --

(Agua Dulce, Calif.): Race for Cash is back. For all competitors who are up for a friendly wager at the NORRA Mexican 1000, the Race for Cash requires a $2000 dollar buy-in and pays the entire pot to the racer with the lowest elapsed time, after penalties, at the finish line in San Jose del Cabo. Competing for the Race for Cash does not impact your individual class standings; it is just a side bet. For those competing in the Evolution era Race for Cash class, this class will start first off the line in Ensenada. All others who wish to buy into the Race for Cash from other classes will start with their respective classes. The pot amount will be determined by the number of racers who enter Race for Cash. You don’t have to be in the Evolution class to be a threat in Race for Cash. If you recall last year’s race, Bob Gordon finished second overall driving his Chenowth 2 seater in the Vintage Open Buggy class so it’s anyone’s race to win. If you would like to take part in Race for Cash, contact Jenny Coleman at: jcoleman@norra.com.

ABOUT NORRA

Beginning in 2010, the National Off Road Racing Association (NORRA) began promoting a rebirth of the NORRA Mexican 1000 rally. The unique off-road rally was co-created by promoter Mike Pearlman to consist of special stages (unlimited speed timed stages in the dirt) linked together by controlled speed liaison / transit sections (highway). The one-of-a-kind, once-a-year, four-day rally includes vintage off-road vehicles and motorcycles, rally cars, a limited group of modern desert racecars and classes for prerunner trucks and buggies.

Pearlman’s late father Ed and others established the first running of the NORRA Mexican 1000 off-road rally in November of 1967, which eventually became internationally recognized and evolved into the Baja 1000 in the mid-1970s.

The NORRA Mexican 1000 is supported by General Tire, American Racing Wheel, South Point Hotel Casino, Walker Evans Racing, Azunia Tequila, KC HiLites, Bilstein Shock Absorbers and Mastercraft/Impact Safety.
