Big Nasty Hill Climb – September 15, 2015

First and foremost, the Big Nasty is about motorcycle hillclimbing, and you’ll see motorcycles like you’ll see nowhere else. Everything ranging from 300 horsepower, nitro Harley’s, to shrieking, wailing, multi-cylinder 2-strokes will massage your eardrums all weekend. You’ll see a few riders go blasting over our three, different hills and a whole bunch who don’t, and tumble haplessly toward the bottom. But Big Nasty Land has far more than hillclimbing going on and we guarantee that you will never be bored. The 13th annual, 2015 Big Nasty will once again feature our usual crazy stuff including helicopter rides, mechanical bull rides, 600HP V-8 Chainsaws, snowmobile grass drags and fireworks, but we don’t stop there. Come and visit Big Nasty Land and find out why it is known as the place where nascar meets Burning Man!

Date: 9/18/15 – 9/20/15

Location: North and east of New Plymouth

Directions: Take I-84 west from Boise towards and Ontario. About 35 mi from Boise, take exit 13 (Stinker Truck Stop Exit) and follow signs to the Big Nasty. Allow appx 50-60 minutes from Boise to arrive.
