The Sandhills Open Road Challenge (SORC) is a 55-mile rally style open road race through the scenic Nebraska Sandhills. Arguably the most demanding event of its kind in America, SORC offers a daunting series of “S” curves, straights, and 90-degree turns to challenge the most talented of drivers. SORC pioneered the concept of the one-mile shoot out in 2002 and enjoys great popularity with drivers and spectators alike.

All entry fees and sponsorship revenue are donated to a worthy local projects to improve public services, community improvement projects and local scholarship funds. In 2017, SORC donations exceeded $1 million to such projects.
