The UTV World Championship is in Lake Havasu City for 2020
Of course, Lake Havasu City is well known for its namesake lake. Every year, thousands of racers compete on our waters in events like the IJSBA World Finals and the Mark Hahn Memorial. Our Desert Storm Poker Runs bring ALL the boaters to the lake. But we're known for more than just water sports. After all, there must be a reason why vendors from all over the country come to our neck of the woods for the Sand, Water, and RV Expo every year, right? So, it should come as no surprise that the 2020 UTV World Championships chose Lake Havasu as its host city for their racers.

Rules for Spectators
Never cross the racecourse at any time. It's hard for racers to see people. You run the risk of getting hit by one of the racers and causing serious harm to both of you. Camping is not allowed in the wash at any time during the four-day event. Pick up your trash and dispose of it in designated containers or take it with you when you leave. Keep track of kids and leashed pets to avoid injuries.
Spectators can park in the General parking area for free (7001 AZ-95). Walk from there up to the viewing area for the races. You may also watch from 50 feet away by driving up to the Standard Wash's boundary on the north, south, or east side. Just make sure you maintain a safe distance from the racecourse itself. Finally, park your vehicle and trailer in the parking lot and ride your own ATV up to one of the three spectators areas designated throughout the wash.
