IMPRACTICAL gambler500.com– OFF-ROAD NAVIGATION ADVENTURE CHALLENGE
The Gambler 500, founded by Tate Morgan and the Oregon group began in 2014 as a challenge to see how far $500 cars could go. The first year had 14 cars, in 2015 the number of participants increased to 28, then 31 in 2016. The Gambler 500 gained rapid popularity growth in 2017, with over 800 vehicles participating in Oregon. In 2017, independent Gambler 500 regional events occurred in many areas.
The Gambler 500 Rally is a mostly off-road Rally-Style Navigational Adventure using cheap, impractical or fun vehicles. Participants are encouraged to spend no more than $500 USD on their vehicle, however this limit is not enforced. Vehicles can be modified with no cap, but as public roads are used they should still be in compliance with the law. The Gambler 500 began in Oregon, which is now known as "OG500", the event has since spread across the United States and Canada (Gambler 500BC). The motto is "Always Be Gambling″ abbreviated to "ABG".
Teams typically consist of a cheap car, driver and navigator, with the objective to hit daily GPS navigational waypoints. It is a two day event, with a party at the mid-point and another at the end of day two.
