As things slowly return to normal, some "large gatherings" ... that's 2020-ese for, "big-time party" ... are once again being planned.

The Sun City Extreme Off-Road Park will finally hold their grand opening celebration in about 3 weeks at 3701 North Zaragoza Road on El Paso's far east side. October 10th, the party is on with racing, multiple food vendors, lots to see and do, and .. best of all ... live music. El Paso's favorite party band, Fungi Mungle, will close out the event and the track sits on acres, and acres, and acres of land so there is plenty of room for everyone to practice social distancing while finally having some fun and excitement outdoors.

Here is the info on registering to race, the prizes, and the entertainment posted by Sun City Extreme Off-Road Park on their Facebook page:
