The winner of the Toyo Tires Desert Invitational Presented by Monster Energy will take home $100,000, 2nd place earns $15,000, and 3rd place $10,000. The driver with the fastest lap time of the day earns an additional $3,750. With increases in prize money to the Ultra4 class to match, the payout for KOH week will exceed $300,000.


The list of confirmed competitors includes but is not limited to:
Rob MacCachren
Tavo Vildosola

I for one am really stoked to see this event. I've never really seen the trophy trucks out in the desert. Seen plenty of LOORS events but to get to see trophy trucks and ultra4s is gonna be off the hook. Can't wait, this will be my 4th time at KOH.

After missing the last couple of years we're going to try and make this one.
The granddaughter saw us watching some youtube videos of KOH and
wants to see it in person.

Never said I didn't like it. I camp on private land, so I'm good saving the $20. All though I think it should be part of my race fee's

I just remember the days of Dave saying it would always be a donation, It's public land.

I don't think it's Dave's deal as much as it's the BLM wanting a larger chunk of the pie. If you do the numbers on what they're claiming 100k spectators, racers, venders, pits crew and so on. That's close to $4m coming in. That's not including sponsor dollars and TV money.

I had talked to Dave years ago about the increasing costs. 2nd year he got shitters it was a few grand. Next year after they saw how big it got. The same $2000 shitters, were $50k. Same with the fences, and permits.

Dave also bought up the land coming in Boone road before the bridge. Will be curious what his plans are for that land.

Am I still going to pay it? Yes. Am I just bitching? Yes.

I guess this is just the way things go.

Oh stop the bitching, it's 50 bucks if you're camping. The logistic and clean-up cost must be astronomical.

Otherwise......stay home

$50 for week long camping and wheeling seems cheap to me?

$50 to camp!?

Good thing Maxxis pays for my plane ticket and entry.

At the cost of having to mount tires all week.
