Mar. 22, 2017 (Agua Dulce, Calif.): Napier tents will be used by the NORRA Mexican 1000 crew during the 50th anniversary of the rally in 2017. NORRA crew members spend long hours in the desert scouting the course and providing assistance during the rally stages. Napier tents allow them to set up camp in minutes if need be, and begin relaxing after a long day. The NORRA crew puts in a lot of work, but it’s worth it. “The Happiest Race On Earth!” is entirely about having fun and creating memories that will last a lifetime. NORRA participants experience the most stunningly beautiful Baja scenery as they make their way down the entire length of the Baja Peninsula. After each day of racing, they have enough free time to experience a different location in Baja with friends and family. Each overnight stop has its own unique charm and character.

Napier Tents will be supporting the Mexican 1000 by donating prizes, and offer special discount rates on their many products. Napier tents are already a great value; with the special discount codes you can’t beat the price. Why not get a tent for your vehicle and add it to your race supplies or weekend bug out bag.

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, as well as modern desert Rally Raid cars, pre-runner trucks, buggies and motorcycles.

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-1970's.

The 2016 NORRA Mexican 1000 was supported by Azunia Tequila, Walker Evans Racing, South Point Hotel Casino, Bilstein Shock Absorbers and Mastercraft/Impact Safety.
