*Special Notice on Bench Lake Fire*

Unfortunately, a wildfire started near the Bench Lakes on Thursday July 11, 2024, and has been growing exponentially each day.
SVTdF staff are in direct communication with the SNRA and the Blaine County Sheriff Department. Our biggest priority is safety. As of today, all SVTdF events north of Ketchum, including Huckleberry Drive and High Speed runs, will continue as planned. Please bear in mind it is crucial that we give priority to all fire personnel and are not a hindrance in their efforts. We will provide future updates via social media.

There will not be any hosted restrooms, tents, bleachers, food trucks, or any services in this area.

SVTdF reminds folks who want to view the runs that they must follow all guidelines from law enforcement, event officials, and volunteers, including staying 300 feet off the road when cars are running at high speeds. The event is permitted by Idaho Transportation Department from Cathedral Pines to the Wood River Campground. There is no parking or stopping on this stretch of highway. The Harriman Trail is also closed to motorized vehicles.

This four-mile stretch of Highway 75 is permitted from 7am-3pm on Saturday, July 20th and allowed to be closed for 20 minutes at a time. When the road is hot, (participating cars traveling at high speeds on the road) it will be closed to north and south traffic. When the course is clear, the road will open to allow traffic to travel north and south.
