Have you ever heard of the Gambler Rally? How about HooptieX?
Dubbed their Super Bowl of events, the Gambler 500 just completed their most recent and largest annual challenge. A rally style “race” in which you build a vehicle that was probably never intended to compete in anything at all, and put it through a series of wild off-road challenges. This is the Gambler 500.
Dustin Fedak writes: “90% of the vehicles are completed for under $500. With no timing you just have to reach destination points and eventually complete the challenge. Sounds impossible right? Well with over 3,000 entrees competing this year, it was indeed possible. Granted, this year’s off-road navigational challenge took place during a time unseen in our generation, the nation and even the world. True to form, the Gambler crew was able to once again pull off an incredible event and has found a way to still make amazing adventures happen during the Covid-19 situation, even with about half of the previous year’s participants. 3,000 participants is still quite amazing, global pandemic or not.”
From their website: The Gambler 500 started in Oregon 2014 by Tate Morgan and the OG Gamblers, a small group embracing cheap fun in all forms.
Now dubbed “Gamblertown” the original event in Oregon is the global meetup for what Gambler has evolved into as brand encouraging people across the world to go have adventures using Gambler 500 as a call sign.
We allow people to use the term “Gambler” as long as it’s free and participants embrace the ideals of stewardship while having cheap fun in the outdoors.
