Now a common end to the Moab Easter Jeep Week, Dirt Riot is back at AreaBFE for the fourth year.  Dirt Riot adds a racing flavor to the trail-riding week.  Pro 4400 4×4 racers, trail rig class and UTV classes race a course that is spectator friendly and fun to watch.  Or, if you want to race, there is a run-what-you-brung+safety class to compete in!  Racing starts at 9am and will finish around 4pm with an awards ceremony.
