You think this is bad? I was just reading that KOH is going to require a Negative C-19 Test or Proof of Vaccination to enter Hammertown. Not sure if this is true or not??? If it is, this race is going to go tits up!!!

Like I have said, sadly there will be no returning to the “way it was”.

This is the beginning of a forever changed way of life, just like post 911, mark my word.

When I was out there on Halloween this year I took my sons 170 out to a little spot off of London Bridge rd to let the boys do a little riding. While we were there, two sheriffs pull up and ask if I have my use permit. We use this little spot every time we take the little Rzr out and this was the first time I’ve heard of needing a permit. I went online on my phone and paid the $20 and that’s that for a year. I hadn’t heard anything before about this and haven’t seen any Leo out there since.

Is this the same permit the race requires?

No that is a permit for Arizona State Land trust access. The race is on BLM and Im sure it is a one-time event on BLM charge and not a ” pass”.

Ive been on az state land my whole life and never heard of being asked for the permit. If you have a azgf hunting license it works too, just not sure if it works if you are not hunting.

If I added up all the fucking passes I need to stand on unimproved public dirt or swim in a lake It would be ridiculous.

There are only 2 places in bouse and both will be bumper to bumper campers and the action there is not really worth the time IMO. It will be super dusty this year.

Access both places off Swansea rd. Take the left at the rr crossing in Bouse by the military tanks head straight back and go left at the last real left I think it is Rayder rd which will run into Swansea rd. You will come up on the course where the course does a U and heads back out. That is a spectator area.
The other area is to continue on swansea rd toward the aqua duct about another 2-3 miles on graded dirt to a 2 hundred yard spectator area along the course. It’s between the road and the course and has midway pit traffic on the road, so it can get super dusty too. You can’t just stop anywhere along Swansea Rd and watch the race the LEO or BITD will be on you in minutes


Believe it or not they run radar on the dirt road during the race weekend. LOL Cops, BLM, Sheriff, & Border patrol will be in force getting in their OT - it’s 25 mph. Swansea Rd is closed for the race right after the spectator area by normal race mile 34-ish. To get a spot at either place I would be there at least a day or 2 before. Again not the best place to see the race. IMO.

See the old race mile markers 34 and 37.5 for the spectator areas. Mile markers will change this year due to race being shortened by some 25 miles I suspect.
