Adult derby racing for kids who never want to grow up.
Downhill DeathBox Derby is your chance to relive the thrill of racing down a dirt hill in a gravity powered death box you built out of junk you had laying around, or stole from your dad’s junk pile. Limited to 24 teams, participants will line up side-by-side and race down the hills of the Wild West Motorsports Park.
Vehicles must be gravity powered only and follow our very basic rules to make sure you have some resemblance of safety. Races will take place between our main event off-road races during the HellsGate Grandprix. While we do track prep,our Deathbox Derby will take place down the second stretch and run a modified double elimination format. In addition, we will showcase the vehicles at the Nugget Casino on Friday night before the race. This event will run in conjunction with the Silver State 4WD&UTV Jamboree.
We encourage participants to share their builds, testing, and fun on social media. Awards for engineering, theme, and peoples choice will be given in addition to our over-all winner.
Please take a look at our rules for more details. Space is limited to 24 vehicles.
