Racing Saturday March 30th Starting at 9am in Moab, UT at AreaBFE
PLACERVILLE, CA MARCH 26, 2013: Last year’s AreaBFE Dirt Riot race winner and Dirt Sports Driver of the Year Brad Lovell is confirmed to race the 2013 Mountain Series kick off this weekend Saturday March 30th at AreaBFE, just outside Moab, UT. Everyone that has wanted to race a 4×4 endurance race is welcome to come and participate starting with Tech and Registration on Friday night, followed by Racing all day Saturday. For UTV’s and Stock Trail class the only requirements are Solid Roof, Doors or Door Bars, 4 Point Harness, Two Fire Extinguishers and a DOT approved Helmet. “AreaBFE creates a very fun environment for racing with the top bowl filled with spectators to watch them,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “We had a great turn out for last years race and we already know of quite a few of the top racers that are committed to coming. We are also really encouraging others that are in town this week to come and have a good time racing, the Trail Class is some of the best grass roots racing around…and there is a cash payout! Guaranteed good time!”
Drivers that are confirmed for this race include four Rock Addict club members’ 4400 cars out of Colorado, including, Chris Hoyt, who was the Dirt Riot National Rampage champion last year. Also racing is 16 year-old Bailey Campbell, prodigy of the Campbell Enterprises stable in her first 4×4 race and Levi Shirley and Brian Shirley of Lucky Dog Racing who were the 1st and 2nd place National Champions of the 2012 Dirt Riot season. Dustin Sexton from Sexton Offroad will have his Bronco racing and Andrew McLaughlin of LetzRoll Offroad will try to follow up his Arizona win from two weeks ago.
There are 3 Professional 4×4 classes, a Trail/Sportsman 4×4 class and a UTV class. The classes are built to encourage local 4×4 or UTV participants to join us in a day of fun racing. For registration information go to http://www.werocklive.com/2013/dirt-riot-mountain-series-1-moab-ut. Dirt Riot is an Endurance Racing series that is composed of 4 series of 3 races that stretch across the country.
Spectators are encouraged to come and enjoy the day of entertainment on Saturday March 30th. Area BFE does not allow for a loop race, so there will be a slightly different format than usual. More specifically there will be laps on the upper loop, a downhill to the lower section, followed by laps on the lower loop and then a return to the upper loop, with laps following. If you joined us last year, it will be similar with exceptional viewing areas. Qualifying for the 4400 4×4 group starts at 9am. The Stock Trail and Mod Trail class will begin their race at approximately10am for one hour. At the completion of that race, approx 11am, the Heat Races for the Pro 4400 Classes will start. Heat racing will be based on number of entries, so at this point it is unknown how many heats there will be until the mandatory drivers meeting at 8am Saturday morning. After the round of heat races is complete, the Pro 4500 and 4600 class cars will begin racing. Then the 4×4 4400 class will again make an appearance racing their B main races. Next up will be the UTV Class which will run for an hour and at the completion will be the final Pro 4400 A Main races. The race schedule is set so there is an opportunity for the 4400 Pro 4×4 cars to get a full day of racing while maintaining safety on the course between number of cars and the laps on the top and bottom courses. The winner of this race will be the one to complete the set amount of laps in the fastest amount of time.
The awards ceremony immediately follows the final race. Admission is $15 for adults, $5 for ages 8-15, children 7 and under free and Military with ID get $5 off. There are vendors, food and amenities on site, and we encourage you to bring chairs and shade structures.
