A Dream in the Desert: Spring Mountain's Transformation

Gear Up for an Unforgettable Weekend Celebrating 20 Years of Motorsports Excellence

04 familyTwo decades ago, Spring Mountain’s story began with a vision and 193 acres of Nevada desert. Today, we stand as a testament to that vision, transformed into a sprawling 930-acre motorsports paradise. Our journey began with a modest 2.2-mile racetrack, a handful of Corvettes, two tent structures, and a passionate team. Under the leadership of Chairman John Morris, we've grown into a one-of-a-kind facility boasting over 930 acres and 9 miles of challenging racetrack with countless configurations.

As we celebrate this milestone, we're filled with immense gratitude for everyone who has been a part of this journey. We invite you to come along for the ride as we look to our exciting future. Here's to the next 20 years, and to many more miles on the track!
