Pahrump to Death Valley Junction and onward

Planning a trip for next May. Mapquest tells me to go from Pahrump to Shonshoe to get to Death Valley Junction. Isn't there a shorter way and what is the mileage? Is this route all paved roads? Can anyone tell me the mileage from Pahrump to Ridgecrest via this way? We are leaving Pahrump early AM to try and catch sunrise at Zabriski Point. I need to know how long it will take me to make this drive.

Yes, 178 is a great route with Joshua Trees and the drive along Kern River but it'll take more time. If you want to avoid interstates also take ca 65 from Bakersfield to Porterville and Exeter. In Exeter you'll find some fine murals but it was a long time ago since I've been there so not exactly sure where they are.
