Bonneville Offroad Racing (BOR) is an desert racing organization based in Salt Lake City, UT.

Bonneville Off-road Racing Enthusiasts (BORE), the predecessor to BOR, was established by Jim Baker in 1989[1] as a local, more affordable, friendlier, alternative to the Southern California and Mexico races put on by SCORE. Even with its lean organizational team, it offered full-seasons of challenging, well-planned and well-marked courses; with all the ear-marks and perks of a much larger, professionally run, organization (e.g., big-name event sponsors, informative newsletters, comprehensive points-scoring, computerized event-timing). It is believed to be the first of its kind to have state-of-the-art, computerized, event-timing with real-time scoring (developed by Potter Engineering & Consulting); which allowed racers and spectators to monitor the up-to-the-minute race-status of all event entries. Before his own passing (in 2014), Jim passed the leadership-torch to a team of enthusiastic successors; who continue to put on races in Northern Utah, Northeastern Nevada, and Southern Idaho.

The BOR racing series consists of four events a year, taking place from April to October.
