The five-day/four-night-rally is organized by a New Mexico-based group of auto-aficionados called DeansList.us. Members volunteer every year to help organize the Dustball that will start in El Paso, Texas and end in Las Vegas with two 'mystery destinations' to keep rally-racers on their toes.
Teams have the chance to take home two awards: the Gimmick Award, which is given to whoever completes the most items on the scavenger hunt, and the Spirit Award.

"We did a Dustball 1000 earlier this year where we went up through the NE part of Arizona then dropped down in Scottsdale," Medley said. "There are so many great roads here. We love Arizona. We've been from Douglas to Flagstaff and we've been on almost every road in between. They're just beautiful, beautiful roads."
