PLACERVILLE, CA: This Saturday head to the Battle Rock Offroad Park right outside Cortez Colorado for a double points Dirt Riot 4×4 Endurance Race. The heat will be on the track where high horse power tough drivers will compete for the race win and two separate Series Titles, not to mention a National Points Title! The Dirt Riot Mountain Series and Southwest Series will both conclude with one wave of the checker flag on Saturday afternoon. “We had our first race here last year and the terrain that it offers so close to town and Jimmy’s 4×4 is awesome!” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “We are anticipating another great race with a lot of action, especially with the heightened series points battles in every class. Some are within one to two points and these guys and gals are really dodging for those titles, and payouts of course!”
