About

What is the Gambler 500?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0tP0zXv9fY
The video should answer a lot of the questions...LOL

Intentionally vague, always awesome!
It is a two-day (roughly) 500 mile mostly off-road navigational rally. Vehicles bought for $500, or historically unreliable, or spectacularly impractical. In other words, drive anything. Nobody cares if it was $500, but it should be shitty or weird.

What are the rules for the Gambler?
We mostly have "recommendations" the golden rule is "Don't be a dick", just show up, be completely self-sufficient for the weekend, and have fun!

How do I register for the "event"?
You don't. Just show up, it would be nice to confirm your attendance on this page by clicking on events and posting your rig and team name, but not required. (we need a count so we can provide each team a set of GPS waypoints for each day)

How much is it to enter?
FREE

What happens at the 1/2 point Saturday night?
We basically "camp" at a predesignated location in the middle of nowhere, usually an OHV area, and party. Then start again Sunday morning at 8am.

How do you determine the winner(s)?
This is NOT A RACE, in fact the first rig to the halfway point gets a pink minnie-mouse bowling ball through their rear window, speed is not rewarded it is penalized. The1st place trophy goes to the team with the 5th fastest time after 2 days. The real winner is the team that "Get's it the most" they help as many Gamblers as possible, they are good stewards of our land and trails, and they are not dicks. This team wins the "Gambler500SoCal Sceptre" and endless GLORY. Ask Dillan Leu or the BMW Boys, defending champs.

For more info. you can read through posts here, there is an Official Gambler 500 website/forum > http://forums.gambler500.com/
