The 23rd Annual Duel in the Desert from the Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway will race as scheduled from November 9-14, 2020 with only essential personnel and competitors present.
Due to limitations on the size of gatherings in the State of Nevada, X.CELERATED, the event promoter, and LVMS officials have made the tough decision to close the event to spectators. These restrictions also apply to backstretch camping area. All backstretch camping purchases will be refunded automatically.
Competitors will be allowed 10 crew members/pit passes per team, total. All pit passes must be with a team. Limited grandstand seating will be available for pit pass team members. If you are not working with a team or essential to the running of the event you will not be allowed at the Duel in the Desert and will be turned away at the gate.
All prior pit pass purchases will be verified by email and applied to appropriate team. If the pit pass is not applied to a team it will be refunded.
Competitor camping will be allowed in the pits at the Duel in the Desert. We will have complete details posted in the afternoon on October 14, 2020.
An additional revamped, reserved pit parking utilizing the former grandstand parking lot will be released for sale on Monday, October 19, 2020.
Essential vendors only will be allowed in the pits (tires, fuel, parts trailer, and event merchandise) and media will be extremely limited.
Social distancing measures will be in place for the Duel in the Desert including, but not limited to, temperature checks at the gate, sanitizing stations, six-foot distance in line, and masks. Masks must be worn at all areas outside of your pit. Complete event guidelines will be released closer to the event date.
