The Gambler 500 Rally 2018

Edited: Apr 13, 2018


July 13 - July 15


LaPine, Oregon


843 cars made us the biggest rally in the world in 2017. This year will shatter that record again.

We’re busy securing the site to host over 1,400 teams from all over the US. We’re formatting the rally to accommodate so many awesome people and vehicles which will allow everyone to rally in from anywhere to the meeting point over 3 days and 2 nights July 13-15th (Friday is optional). $40/person to camp Saturday $20 for Friday. We’re adding more competition, bands and some super rad stuff for camp Gambler.

There’s enough room for everyone, we allow recovery rigs, we allow crazy impractical cars that might cost more than $500, we don’t check anyway.


At this point all we need to do is RSVP by clicking the "Going" button and the facebook Event page.


Let's get a car!

  • Do You want to Tag along for the gambler 500? we can have nonregistered chase cars this year! Also, you can register for the camping portion of the event ONLY, if you would like. Camp opens Friday morning and will be rocking all weekend. it does cost the same, but if you want to head out early and set camp, party and wait for us to roll in. More power to ya! Tessa Carrillo will head out Friday night/sat morning to set our camp, and wait if anybody wants to roll with her, post up! we will have two gambler cars (so far), a support crew ( Royale Brewing Company ), and I am working on a chase film crew for the weekend. if you plan to chase, please post up your vehicle specs and info as I would like to verify a few safety/preparedness items. it will be a lot of offroad, so be prepared! If you want to just hang out and party in camp, hells yeah! I look forward to seeing you. Get registered and come on out. If you want to put a 3rd car together, there is still time! This is going to be one of those events on one of those years, you won't want to have missed. I have a feeling. Tess and I are already registered, let's do this!
