This hillclimb takes place on Nevada State Route 341 and is 4.5 miles. The route has 21 turns and three straight-a-ways. The starting line begins at an elevation of 4,800 feet and finishes at 6,200 feet at the South end of Virginia City. Speeds have been recorded in excess of 130 MPH. The course record is 3:20.909.

Every run will be timed and recorded. Times will be given to each driver after every run when they return to grid. The driver that completes the course in the least amount of time in their class wins.
