Silver State Classic Challenge – Ely to Las Vegas
September 16 - September 19
For the past three decades, driving enthusiasts from around the world have gathered on the third Sunday of May and September in the Nevada high desert for the running of some truly unique automotive events. Their amazing journey traverses 90 to 120 miles of closed, two-lane public highway, comprised of long fast straights, sweeping corners, blind dips, even carving through a twisty canyon. The current course record stands at 219.6430 mph average speed, as recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. The best part is, if you’ve got the nerve, a little cash, and a fast ride, you too can join them to run as fast as you can, legally, down a public highway. Welcome to the Silver State Classic Challenge!
The Silver State Classic Challenge (SSCC) event in September will remain our classic 90-mile, one-way event format, with the Guinness World Records on the 90-mile course up for grabs, and the SSCC Awards Banquet will be at Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
