    This will be out 2nd Annual Racin' To The Basin Event! Starting in Carefree we'll meet for breakfast at a local cafe. After topping off our tanks, we'll head North towards Seven Springs. Shortly after passing the camp sites, the road begins to open up. After stopping for a quick break, we'll set up the cameras to get some sweet shots of everyone "flying" by.

    We then continue on down towards Sheep Bridge for lunch at the river. Depending on the weather, this can be a great time to take a swim in the slow moving water!

    Making our way back out we head towards the infamous Bloody Basin. This part is one of our absolute favorite stretches of dirt in AZ. Soft, clay colored dirt with mountains that go on for what looks like 100's of miles. Combined with long straight-aways and hair pin turns, Bloody Basin is an experience all in it's own.

    We'll eventually make our way back to the highway where we'll air up. For those that would like to join us, we'll be grabbing dinner and pie at a near by restaurant.

    This is the run that started it all!

    Registration will be opening soon for this event, so subscribe to our email list now so you don't miss your chance!

    What's Required?

    -A well-maintained Ford Raptor or comparable vehicle (Colorado ZR2/ Raptor swapped F150/ etc)
    -One full size spare tire plus a tire plug kit (two spares is recommended)
    -One full case of bottled water, meals, snacks
    -A quality 50-watt VHF radio pre-programmed to 151.625 Weatherman AND 151.715 BFG Relay. Most radios do not allow for field programming so please come with these already programmed!
    -We now require an offroad GPS
    -Most importantly a positive attitude

    I finally got her off road on Monday just went up to four peaks trying all the driving modes super nice I aired down tires to 18 lbs. I really liked 4h in manual mode and using the gear selector on the shifter really nice way to navigate the terrain !

    hey everyone. @thearizonacowboy is still involved but I am a running the events this year.

    We have a kick off event at Foutz Motorsports on Feb 9th that everyone should attend. It'll cover everything you need to know about the events, whats required to participate and there will be a TON of Raptors there. Register www.arizonaraptorruns.com

    These events are designed for raptors so they are mostly fast and flowing trails. No Jeepin rock crawling type stuff at our events, so your bone stock raptor will do great and NOT get trashed. (I have a '18 that bone stock)
