FOLKS Jr., CASEY  
CASEY FOLKS JR. Casey Eugene Folks, Jr., 72, of Las Vegas, passed away peacefully the morning of Jan. 12, 2017. Born Sept. 1, 1944, in California, Casey lived nearly his entire life in Las Vegas, where he built a life centered around off-road racing. Casey competed in almost every type of off-road event throughout the western United States. His portfolio included over 30 races in Baja, Mexico, and the Tunisia Rally in northern Africa. He served as the American consultant for the Incas Rally in Peru and was the event coordinator for three Nevada rally events, representing the company "Acerbis Adventure" based in Italy and organized the Nevada 2000, the single longest off-road race ever held in the United States. He won 16 off-road motorcycle racing championships in his career and in 1980 was the first person ever to solo the Baja 1000 and finish. He was the only person to finish every Barstow to Vegas race that he started. In 1968, Casey and his good friend opened Sportsman Cycle Sales. Through Casey's guidance and support, Sportsman Cycle birthed and nurtured many racers that went on to have very successful racing careers. In 1968, he also formed the Motorcycle Racing Association of Nevada (MRAN) as a non-profit organization to provide local racing opportunities with a heavy focus on family participation. He formed Best in the Desert Racing Association in 1984 for off-road motorcycle racing. He introduced the "Vegas to Reno" race in March 1996, adding cars, trucks and quads to his races for the first time. Casey grew Best in the Desert into North America's largest and most prestigious off-road racing organization. Casey was inducted into the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2012, joining the ranks of off-road racing's greatest legends. Casey enjoyed hunting throughout his life and was an avid Nevada historian. Casey was a man of integrity, extraordinary passion, loyalty and patriotism. He had the uncommon ability to mobilize armies of volunteers to join him in his adventures. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his constant companion and partner, of 18 years, Diane DeLauer; sons, Daryl Folks (Sheri) of Boulder City, and Bryan Folks of Las Vegas; a sister, Joan Ragona-Suarez of Amelia Island, Fla.; and three granddaughters, Adrianna, Morgan and Marlee. Services will be private. The family is planning a celebration of life event in memory of Casey in mid-February. Details on date, time and location for the Celebration of Life will be announced on the Best in the Desert website www.BITD.com and on the Best in the Desert Facebook page. Memorial charitable donations may be made to the Gary Sinise Foundation supporting veterans at www.garysinisefoundation.org or to Warfighter Made at www.warfightermade.org
