Silver State 4WD & UTV Jamboree This July in Sparks

Posted: Updated:

From JA Nugget:

A new kind of special event is coming to Northern Nevada this summer. In July, JA Nugget, the City of Sparks and Wild West Motorsports Park will host 4 –wheel and off-road racers from all over the Western Region at the first Silver State 4WD & UTV Jamboree. The event is scheduled to take place from July 14-19, 2014.

"With space for unlimited motorized recreational activities and hotel rooms to accommodate off-road racers and enthusiasts, Sparks is uniquely positioned to become the off-road and 4-wheel racing mecca of the West," said Jeff Knoll, Silver State 4WD & UTV Jamboree Organizer.

A former producer of the popular King of the Hammers event in California, Knoll studied the area carefully before selecting Sparks to host the Silver State 4WD & UTV Jamboree.

"King of Hammers brings 30 thousand people to a barren desert," said Knoll. "Here in Sparks, we have the accommodations to take an off-road event, like Silver State Jamboree, to the next level."

Instead of camping, event participants can stay in clean, luxurious hotel rooms at the event's host hotel, JA Nugget.

"JA Nugget can't wait to welcome the Silver State Jamboree this summer," said Carlton Geer, President and CEO of JA Nugget. "After racers have an adventure out on the track, they can return to the Nugget for a great time at our signature restaurants, such as Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Que, or try their luck in the casino."

In addition to racing at the Wild West Motorsports Park, Northern Nevada is close to two of the West's most famous off-road trails, The Rubicon and Fordyce Creek Trail. Both are located within an hour of Reno-Sparks.

The area itself is within a 1-day travel radius of 18 percent of the United States population, said Knoll.  He anticipates the event will attract thousands of visitors and participants.
