The Lemans start of the road race at the Fairgrounds parking lot
gives a close-up view of the racers and their costumed pit crew and
entourage. After the road course along Campus Way headed toward
OSU, racers return to the sand dune obstacle at the Benton County
Fairgrounds. They then complete the course through fields and along
the multi-use path to the west to the finish line at Benton County

The clock for the Road Race starts when racers leave the
starting line and arrive at the finish line. Time spent waiting for
traffic clearance, traffic signals, etc, is the luck of the draw
and added to overall time. All racers must obey traffic rules
with the exception of intersections closed by race officials.
Once racers reach the Sand Dune at the Benton County
Fairgrounds, there is a maximum 10 minute time allowance for racers
to climb the Dune, and then continue along the road race
The road race course officially closes at 5:00 pm on Saturday.
Most teams (unless they have breakdown difficulties) return to the
finish line between 3:30 and 4:30 pm.
