“Last year’s inaugural 8-hour race was a huge

As the presenting sponsor, PIAA will again
provide financial support as well as offer a
contingency program that will encourage racers
to use PIAA halogen and HID lighting products.
The race starts at 4 p.m. and finishes at

“Teaming up with PIAA, the industry leader in
power-sports lighting and putting on an UTV and
ATV endurance race was a home run.”
