2015 THR Parker 250

Hello Inmates,

Who: Me + 2005 XR650R; Friend + 2007 525; Friend + 20XX 450X. All intend Ironman class
What: THR Parker 250
Where: Parker, AZ
When: Reg/Tech 9 Jan; Race 10 Jan
Why: Because it's awesome!

Two friends and I plan to Ironman the Parker 250 this year.

Have any of you ever done a Parker 250 Ironman, and if so, know specifics regarding solo pit/re-fuel requirements? Can we just set our trucks up, put some fuel in the back and race and pit ourselves?

The last time I did Parker 250 was in 2007 as part of a three man team...so, doing Ironman class will be a huge change.

Any details/tips outside of what is listed on the BTID website is much appreciated.

Thanks!

Inmate BC61 will be racing maybe you guys can make a plan for the remote pit.

The river wash will be chewed up they usually have the bikes before the truck race but this year you guys will be running after the cages.

you will only do two loops to the pros three making the two fifty the 160ish

Good luck and dont forget to set your clock to the local time

Parker 250 is a fun time for sure.
This will be my 15 yr olds first "road" type desert race. He's done some of the limited loop National H&H's, but not this wide-open throttle stuff. That is, IF his grades are up, then he and I will share the course on my YZ125 (fast roads, thus the 125, I don't need him on his 450 for this). If grades aren't up then Jen and I will team up on the 125.

Looks like we'll also have a couple solo guys flying in to race, VT and Canada, on 450Xs we supply. Should be fun.

I'm pretty sure you need a chunk of carpet for your bike to pit on. Any little one will do, I've even seen a big beach towel laid down. Just throw it on the ground behind your truck, in case anyone's looking, just to cover your ass.

This year the wash was really smooth, pretty freshly graded, good fun. I hope it's like that again cuz I'm in crappy shape ;-)
You sure we're racing after the cars Mike? I have us racing on Jan.10 and cars on Feb.7.

No joke! A few years ago I arrived to sign up, um, an hour after it closed and the riders meeting was happening. Oops.

Really fun race. I think it was my first desert race and ironman.

If you are on the fence, go for it!
