Hmmm? Night off-road race, on open desert, no lights, no barriers, etc, and popular? I wonder with whom. How close do you have to be at night to actually see the race? It sounds a bit stupid, but then I’m not a major off-road race fan. Night off-road stuff would be mainly for the drivers and co-drivers/navigators it would seem. Spectators only get in the way. Sad day in the CA desert.

The crowd was standing within 10 feet of the track with no guard rails separating them from the speeding vehicles.

"There were no barriers at all," Jeff Talbott, inland division chief for the California Highway Patrol, told the Riverside Press-Enterprise.
