Desert Race School was developed over decades of racing. Ron Stobaugh started racing in Baja and the Southwest US in the early 90's, winning Baja races and Championships along the way.
Shannon Boothe began racing in the mid-90's, and soon moved to the right seat, becoming an accomplished and race winning navigator. Eventually, the two crossed paths, and Shannon became Ron's regular co-pilot/navigator, winning many Baja races together.
It was Ron's son Austin who suggested a "school", and Desert Race School was born in 2007. Today, Ron, Shannon and Austin still run and continue to develop Desert Race School, helping many Avoid The School of Hard Knocks.
We have taught over 65 classes, with over 100 first time racers, family, friends and OE Engineers. Some recent achievements:
