Yerington 1 2024 East course Information

  1. This course is on the EAST side of the valley. Considered our new course, the same one we ran the last 3 years.  

  2. Main pit location: 38.9627, -119.1275309. We have a ton of room, but we still ask that non race essential vehicles park behind the trailers being used to pit. From Dini’s lucky club it is 3.2 miles. Although East Bridge Street is a major road, you do drive past several homes, so please obey traffic laws and take it slow. Head south on main street. .4 miles. Turn left (east) onto E Bridge Street for 1.2 (Wells Fargo is on the corner) Turn Right onto Mackenzie ln for 1.0 mile. Turn Left onto Cemetery ln and follow up the hill .6 miles. The pit area will be on the right side. Follow the course arrows. Be sure to set pits up a minimum of 25 feet from the course. 

  3. Qualifying starting order is based off of 2023 overall results. 

  4. Youth racing starts at 9:30am Friday morning, please be mindful in the pit area while this is happening .  

  5. The poker run will take place Friday at 1:00 pm. All non-racing vehicles and participants will start last in the poker run. Starting positions for the poker run are listed on the website.  

  6. Tech and Registration will take place on main street in Yerington.  You can drive your race car from main pit to tech, we ask that you have a spotter vehicle follow if you if possible and be sure to follow all local traffic laws. After completing tech, please park your race car on main street towards the north side of main street near the Boys and Girls club.  We will hold a parade following the drivers meeting. 

  7. The Drivers meeting will take place inside the Yerington Convention center, located between the Dinis lucky club and Pioneer crossing on main street. It is mandatory that a representative from your team attends. It will not be on social media.  

  8. Racing Starts at 9am Saturday morning. Staging will take place on the course, look for the row you are assigned too. 

  9. Based on entries as of 3/10, we will hold just one race.  

  10. There are NO pits or spectator areas on the South side of the course.  Pit A is a mercy pit, there is no staging at this pit location. This area is privately owned land. The landowner requests that we keep this area clear. All Vorrateers will be instructed to ask everyone to leave this area. 

  11. There will be only two pit areas. Main pit and Pit B. Pro pit will be at Pit B. The bad part is this area is landlocked. Meaning you cannot access this area during the race. Pit crews will be stuck at this pit until after the race. To access Pro pit, you will follow the directions to the spectator area, and then been instructed by the vorrateers in this location to the pit area.  Pit B Cords. 39.0071701, -118.9868218  

  12. There will be only one spectator area this year. That will be located 8.8 miles east on highway 95 from Dini’s lucky club.  39.0322312, -119.0019807 

  13. We have made a course change, the racecourse no longer goes past the homes eliminating the 25mph zone in this area.  

  14. There are 2 road crossings on the south side of the course. These are 25 mph zones. You may be stopped if traffic is on the main road. Unlikely, but definitely a possibility. 

  15. There are 5 25 mph zones on course, but the only full stop will be at start/finish. 25 mile zone consists of main pit, road crossing 1, road crossing 2, pro pit area, and spectator 1,  

  16. All race cars will head through main pits each lap. You’ll make a left turn into the main pit area.  

  17. Timing and scoring will be at the North end before you enter the pit area.  

  18. All participants in the poker run riding in a UTV must wear a helmet. NO exceptions! 

  19. Please keep in mind we are on private property for not only the main pits, but a majority of the racecourse. Respect the land and leave the area better than we found it.     

  • Course notes: 

  • The washes have been “washed” but no signs of major wash outs or damage. During the poker run, the wash will need to be burned in. Take your time as these washes can be a little loose before burning in.  

  • There are 2 corners that over the last few year that have got very wide. We will have markers and pink tape hung to try and keep these corners to 1 line. These corners will be monitored. If caught outside of the main line, you will be DQ’d. 

  • 25mph and speed zone signs mean 25mph at the sign. Acceleration needs to happen after the end speed zone or end 25 mph signs. Speeding in a speed zone starts with a warning, after that it’s a 1-minute penalty for every mph you are over the speed limit. Excessive speeding will result in a DQ.  

  • Speed zones are 25mph, not 20, 15 or 10mph. IF you cannot maintain 25mph in the speed zone and another racer is behind you, pull over come to a stop and allow the other racer to pass.  

  • There are a total of about 10 dangers on course. Most are for large rocks. There are also only a couple down arrows for some washes. Other than that, the course is fast and fun!
