Johnnie Walker RV is proud to have helped support the 43rd annual “Jeep Club Jamboree,” Sand Wars racing event that took place President’s Day weekend (February 13-15, 2016) at Dumont Sand Dunes!
The annual event, which attracts truck, Jeep, and side-by-side (UTV) racers from Nevada, California, Arizona, Washington and Utah, has become a tradition for thousands of off-road enthusiasts. As a lead sponsor, Johnnie Walker RV supported the Las Vegas Jeep Club and K&T performance, the event’s organizers, with the transportation of race equipment and track maintenance throughout the weekend.
The Sand Wars event offered a weekend packed full of racing fun. On Saturday, trucks, Jeeps and side-by-sides faced off in hill climb races, also known as hill drags. Sunday's race day included 100yd sand drag races.
“This year’s event was definitely one for the books!” said Shawn Thompson, Jamboree Director of the Las Vegas Jeep Club. “We are appreciative that Johnnie Walker RV was willing to lend a hand in our efforts this year."
Several long time Johnnie Walker RV employees, including the company's service manager, Ken Allen, generally attend and/or participate in the racing event every year.
A spectacle in the desert, Dumont Sand Dunes is a great weekend destination for Las Vegas RVers. We definitely recommend adding Dumont to your list!
