The General Tire Jeepspeed Racing Series Presented by KMC Wheels and Premier Automotive had one more test for competitors in 2016. At the Best In The Desert series Pahrump Nugget 250 race in Pahrump, Nevada, competitors would face an incredibly rocky course with some silt beds tossed in for good measure. A loop race that started just outside of town and finished in the parking lot of the Pahrump Nugget, the first 30 miles were basically a pile of rocks with dirt thrown in. Jeepspeed racers had to get through the rocks to start the race and then run through them again after hours of punishment out in the desert.
The season long points championships were mostly settled, but all the 2016 champions were racing; it gave them an opportunity to push harder and see what their trucks could withstand. In the Jeepspeed Challenge class, Skyler Gambrell took the title with 416 pts. Tim Martin was second with 397 pts. Garett Allred was third with 351 pts.
