PLACERVILLE, CA MAY 29, 2013: The Dirt Riot Central Series will wrap up this Saturday June 1st at Canyons Offroad Park, where there won’t only be a race winner but also a series winner. Last years series winner Levi Shirley is currently leading the points, but Clay Gilstrap is only 4 points behind him with third through 6th place all within points of each other. “This will be an awesome race to watch. Not only is it at a great ranch that has a lot of exciting areas to view, but the height of competition is going to be intensified by the season points race,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “In addition to the cash purses that these guys and gals can win, Canyons Offroad Park has made two awesome belt buckles that will be awarded to the Pro 4400 winner and the UTV Class winner!”
Drivers that are confirmed to race at this event include Dirt Riot 2012 National Title holder Levi Shirley and his dad Brian Shirley. Crawling Chaos Club Members Carl Langerhans and Shawn Inman, along with more Texas locals, Clay Gilstrap, Doug Kahlstrom and Seth Santikos will all be suited up and ready to race. Adam Carter, Kyle Bruso, and Kenny Blume, who will be debuting his brand new Ultra4 car, will be representing Oklahoma, Arkansas and Alabama. Many others will register on Friday at the Driver Meet and Greet at Joe’s Bar on the square in Llano Texas from 5-8pm. The Stock Trail and Stock Mod 4×4 class will have common names at the Central Series Dirt Riot events including Jason Davis, Steven David, Cody St. Clair and Emma Wilson. The last Central Series race at the Coppermines Offroad Park had 26 UTV’s racing against each other, so we suspect this to be a large race with Matt Blackstock and Casey Strickland already registered. With only some simple safety requirements, anyone is welcome to join and race as part of the action!
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 http://www.werocklive.com/2013-fees-payout. 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 June 1st. Qualifying for the 4400 4×4 group starts at 9am. The UTV’s will take the track at 10am for an hour grand prix finish. At 11:30 the Stock and Modified Classes will run for an hour race. The main event will start at 1pm when all the 4×4 Pro Class will take the course including the 4400, 4500 and 4600 classes. The grand prix finish will be around 4pm with awards and cash payouts immediately following. The winners of each class are determined by the most number of laps completed in the set amount of time. There will be open wheeling on Saturday after the race until dark and on Sunday.
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. We are excited to have Creighton King and Maxxis Tires on site for this race. For additional details go to http://www.werocklive.com/events/dirt-riot-central-round-3.
The race course is approximately 6 miles long and has about 4 higher speed sections, but is still consistent with a Canyons race with lots of trees and twisty trail sections. About 70% of the course is the same as last year with obstacles like the Gate Keeper, Toyota Killer, Boss Hog, and Flipper. New sections are a couple of hill climbs and a couple of ledge drops that are all do-able by the Dirt Riot Cherokee. Most of the muddy areas from the past have been removed. Just like every Dirt Riot race, it will be easy enough for UTV’s and Stock 4×4 participants to have fun, but tough enough for the Pro 4400 cars to be challenged.
After the event we will have the results, pictures and stories posted at http://www.werocklive.com/2013/dirt-riot-central-3-fredericksburg-tx
