The region is dominated by a lengthy playa, known as the
"largest flat place on earth." It attracts numerous unusual
activities, including the annual Burning Man festival,
and high speed automobile trials. The official
one-mile land speed record was recorded here in 1983:
633.468 mph, by the vehicle Thrust 2. It is also a popular place for
model rocketry and land-sailing.
Oh and its also a good place for off-road driving (that's
why this page exists)!
