Octane Fest Once Again Set to Burn
Some Fuel!

Octane Fest is back for another weekend of fuel-burning events, and will take place on June 12-14. This year will feature two days of "Monster Truck Spring Nationals" at the Churchill County Fairgrounds (June 12-13). The IMCA Modifieds will take place at Rattlesnake Raceway June 13-14, and the NHRA Open drags will be at Top Gun Raceway on June 12-14 and will feature tire-burning Funny Cars.

WGAS Motorsports is promoting "Octane Fest Spring Nationals," and it promises to be the biggest lineup of monster trucks ever. The event includes Playing For Keeps, Destroyer, Wild Flower, Time Flys, Survivor and the big dog himself, McGruff. Friday's show will feature a free Pit Party for those holding tickets, a Metal Mulisha/Fritz Army freestyle MX jump show, Northern Nevada Outlaw Karts, and a ground-pounding Monster Truck show. Saturday's show 

features the MX jump show, mud drags, and another earth-churning Monster Truck extravaganza.

The Beast jet dragster will dazzle the crowd when it burns down a car in the middle of the rodeo arena during the Monster Truck shows.

Spring in Austin Signals Great Adventure!


For adventure seeking mountain bike aficionados, hikers and other outdoor types who are looking for rugged escapades and true-life stories to tell their friends upon their return, Austin does not disappoint (austinnevada.com.)

Nestled in the Toiyabe range, the well preserved 19th century mining town serves as the gateway to a hundred miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. Originally old mining trails, they are now used as single and double track mountain bike trails with climb in elevation from meadows and streams up to 9,000 foot peaks of nearby summits making some of the riding quite challenging-yet novice riders can find trails to their liking too. Visitors can pick up a trails booklet from the Austin Chamber or from many of the merchants in town. With eleven buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places and surrounding expeditions, travelers are set to enjoy the dynamic Adventure Town of the West in the middle of Nevada.
