Best Appearing to RACE at the Duel in the Desert

In 2020 the Best Appearing Contest at the Duel in the Desert from The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will not only feature the annual special paint schemes from competitors but for the first time ever, special races to be contested and utilized as a charity fundraiser to cap off the weekend.

The usual voting contest will not happen in 2020. Through this new “Best Appearing” concept, The Duel in the Desert has chosen to focus our energy on helping promote charities, raising awareness, sharing personal driver stories, and letting the racers dictate the results on the track to end the weekend.
