cortez-dirt-riot-off-road-7-4-13PLACERVILLE, 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!”

The weekend will kick off at Jimmy’s 4×4 Outback on Friday night from 5:30-8:30 pm with a drivers meet & greet.  Check out the vehicles, meet the drivers and also get shop tours through one of the most highly respected buggy builders in the Ultra4 and 4×4 offroad world.  The address is 1780 Sagebrush Circle, Cortez, Colorado, less than an hour from Durango and other surrounding popular offroading towns.

Chris-Hoyt-Dirt-Riot-6-14-13PLACERVILLE, CA: Dirt Riot comes to Colorado Springs, Colorado this weekend at the RAM Offroad Park for the second race of the Mountain Series kicking it off with a Driver Meet and Greet on Friday night at Southside Johnny’s in Colorado Springs.  Thoughts have been with the families that are affected by the fires in the surrounding areas.  Luckily, these fires do not affect the RAM Offroad Park and the race will be held on Saturday as scheduled.  “We have been watching the plumes of smoke from the park as we set up this amazing course.  We know a lot of the local families are challenged,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events.  “But, the show must go on.  Rescheduling is virtually impossible with the amount of races that we produce in a year, and we have multiple racers that travel from out of state.  Our thoughts are with the people in the local areas and we extend our event as an opportunity for everyone to come and enjoy a day with their family.”

The course at RAM Offroad Park has been a driver’s favorite for years. It also has one of the best spectator areas, with multiple viewing locations that can give completely different experiences.  This course has more jumps than any other course Dirt Riot uses.  The two big uphill jumps right off the starting line have been “re-worked” and offer another level of excitement.  The big hill climbs combined with big dirt drop offs, twisty canyons and a motocross style track with huge banked corners will keep the drivers very busy driving.  Then add in three long straight-aways that the Pro 4×4 4400 drivers will reach max speeds.
