BIG NASTY UPDATES, 9/10/14
YES...YOU CAN BUY TICKES AND CAMPING PASSES AT THE EVENT!!! YES...YOU CAN STILL SIGN UP TO RIDE IN THE HILLCLIMB (ON FRIDAY, EXCEPT FOR THE 450, 700 AND OPEN PRO CLASSES. THOSE 3 CLASSES ONLY ARE CLOSED).
September 12-14 is almost here. Get ready for the biggest and best Nasty yet. The weather is going to be PERFECT! Remember, there is NO back gate this year, so please come to the front gate.
Online registration is closed and hit an all-time record. Except for the three NAHA-licensed pro classes, (450, 700 and Open Pro) you can STILL register at the event on Friday, September 12 from 8am until 6pm, then signup closes for good, so you won't be able to register on Saturday or Sunday. We have an entriely new schedule this year, with the pro classes running on Friday and Saturday, and altered trophy bikes going on Friday and Saturday nights. All of the pro finals will run on Saturday, along with the side-by-side X-Climb. We also added UTV (side-by-side) classes this year and a 3-wheeler class. All of the stock, trophy classes will move to Sunday, along with most of the semi-pro classes. This means that most kids won't have to miss school to compete in Big Nasty Land...
You can still buy tickets and camping passes online and will be able to do so thorughout the weekend. You can ALWAYS buy tickets and regular camping passes at the gate also. We are down to our last THREE VIP camping spots.
Gail Adams from Caldwell beat out 6,500 other tickets to win the Treasure Valley Ford Stores/Maverik WiId Ride contest. Lucky Gail's prize was 21, one-day tickets (day of her choice) to the Big Nasty for her and a bunch of her friends. Congrats from the Big Nasty Family, Gail.
The hills are MOIST because we have watered them a ton and traction will be premo. Crazy Mark from Boise is going to ride a snowmobile up the hill, all 3 days! The last time this was attempted was in 2006, and all of the sleds wound up wrecked at the bottom. Will Crazy Mark fare any better? We can't wait to find out.
We are bringing back a full-blown FX freestyle show this year, The Octane Addictions FX Show, feturing world-class freestylers Regan Seig, Rich Kerns and Jeff Fehr. We are asking people not to bring mini bikes or 4-wheelers out to the hill unless they are competing this year, or, are handicapped or a senior citizen. We are getting too many people hurt back in the campground roaring around on 4-wheelers and mini bikes, and it has to stop. For parents who want their kids to be able to ride their minis out there, we encourage you to enter them in the hillclimb. It only costs $20 to do so, and we give 100 percent trophies, so your child will win a trophy, wherever they finish. If you want to bring a 4-wheeler and are not a senior or handicapped, then enter the hillclimb with your 4-wheeler! We even added a 3-wheeler class this year, AND a kids, 12-under 4-wheeler class too.
We ARE going to allow portable hot tubs in the campground again this year, for the first time in four years. No nudity, please. But for those of you who used to bring them out, you can do so again.
We are also going to allow racers to once again camp in the pits. You DO have to buy a camping pass to do so, (racers normally camp in the pits for free), but we are going to start allowing you to camp in the campground again because racers roaring around at the Big Nasty haven't been a problem and we know that you will use good judgment in getting you and your hillclimb bike from the campground to the hill. This will allow racers to camp with non-racing family members.
Lastly, we are bringing back one and two day tickets, so this year you will once again be able to buy a Friday-only wristband or a Friday-Saturday wristband. We did away with that option last year because a number of people were buying Friday-only wristbands and staying all weekend, which wasn't fair to us or those who paid for all three days, but we came to realize that some people only want to come to the Big Nasty on one particular day. Please be honest and fair on the wristband thing.
Great Video of the Big Nasty:
Shot at the 2012 Nasty by Michael Jazek, this is one of our favorites. Some of the footage include the amazing snowbikes taking on the Big Nasty Hill. It also features some of the great shots of Heath Frisby led, Monster Energy FX Team and NAHA National Champion Brett Peterson's huge crash during Sunday's King of the Hill event.
