May 19-22, 2022 in Terlingua, Texas.
The 'Gambler 500 Mexico' is a joint venture between two great houses, 'Gambler Florida' and 'LoneStar Gambler'. Together we overthrew the Iron Throne and have laid claim to the greatest Gambler territory in Westeros. Viva la revolucion.
The third running of the 'Gambler 500 Mexico' will be May 19-22, 2022 based out of Terlingua, Texas. We are expanding to four days of fun & frivolity in the Chihuahuan desert. Mas informacion en breve!
Terlingua, Texas is base-camp for the 'Gambler 500 Mexico'. This charming, quirky desert town is full of character, music and west Texas hospitality. Enjoy live music & guitars on the porch, even a creepy cemetery.
Got a beautiful spot picked out for you to camp & glamp and chill in the desert heat- Big Bend Resort & Adventures. Showers, outhouse, restaurant, convenience store and gas all on-site. Tent camping is $35 & we have RV sites & motel rooms available.

A handful of hoopties will be chosen to attempt the most rugged and spectacular route of the rally, the climb up Christmas Mountain. Guaranteed to be one of the highlights of the journey, the views are breathtaking.
The trails in the BBNP are challenging and spectacular. The 'River Road' is 51 miles of twists and turns passing tinaja and desert springs. The scenery is like nothing to be found anywhere else in the hemisphere. Rated as 'DEVILS &*%^HOLE' for a reason- you've been warned!
The Big Bend region is remote and far from just about anywhere. The reward for venturing to the area is spectacular scenery. From lowland deserts to pinon and Juniper tree covered mountains in the Chisos. The solitude will give you an amazing experience with breathtaking vistas and lifelong memories. Hermosa.
Some of the most challenging terrain comes on the third day of the rally. We enter the BBRSP attempting the 'Road to Nowhere'. This takes us up to the top of what looks like an ancient asteroid impact crater with stunning views and steep drop-offs. Only those with big huevos need attempt.
Everyone like's to show off, so we're going to accommodate you. Join the 'Gambler Parade' on Friday night as we strut our stuff through the streets of Terlingua finishing at our favorite watering hole.
West Texas is home to some of the most spectacular skies in all of North America. You can visit nearby McDonald Observatory for an amazing view of the night skies. And we have a little thing planed with some local's to show you just how beautiful the night skies really are. ET not included.
One of the organizers of G500Mexico is a direct descendant of Jacob Darst, defender of the Alamo. Yes, 'Double Tap' is a member of Texas royalty. Courtsy not required by the masses, but shots are appreciated.
2020/21 was such a mess with the pandemic, murder hornets, hurricanes, politics, meteors & wildfires. Staff is closely monitoring the possible alien invasion and promise to keep you safe from little green men. I have it on good authority that we are on the protected roles and not under threat of subjugation.
How much? The rally is free. The campground host will hit you up for a few bucks. BBNP will grab $30 per car. BBRSP grabs $5 per person. Both parks are OPTIONAL. Exchange rate is 20 peso's to a dollar.
Going into Mexico is an OPTION offered on this journey. A valid passport or card is mandatory, plus you'll need your vehicle registration. Mexican auto insurance is HIGHLY recommended, and you'll need a FMM form (no sweat). Check the link for details, hombre.
Even in one of the most remote & beautiful places in the world you can still find rubbish left behind. That's no bueno. In 2020 & 2021 we recovered over two tons of trash from the desert. In 2022 we will do even better. Support the Son's and join the 501C3 non-profit gang to make the planet a better, cleaner place.
Drive in the US or Mexico, we give you lot's of routes to choose from. OJ is a great place to start your south of the border exploration. Star Party & karaoke finishes off the evening.
Options to drive in both Mexico/US or Texas only. The Mexican route is amazing and adventurous. The US route is scenic and explores the wonders of the region. A 'Hooptie Parade' finishes out the day in Terlingua.
This is the gem of this event not to be missed- The 'Old Ore Road' and the 'River Road', all Texas based. But we have easier options for the tourists. Car & Art Show, trophy ceremony & shenanigans to follow.
Might be some of the toughest trails of the event. Ever hear of 'The Road to Nowhere' up an extinct volcano? Thought we might give that a try. Tourist routes available as well.
