Racing Saturday 27th Starting at 9am in Birmingham, AL at Gray Rock ORV
PLACERVILLE, CA APRIL 24, 2013: The new Dirt Riot Southeast Series will have its’ second race this weekend at Gray Rock ORV outside of Birmingham Alabama. With multiple names already confirmed to come and race, this will be another weekend full of action and entertainment for drivers and spectators, and proof that the Southeast Series is here to stay. Racing starts at 9am and will go until at least 3pm with awards immediately following. “I remember the first time that we visited the Gray Rock ORV Park and knew this would be a perfect place for a Dirt Riot race. We have worked all week on finalizing a course that uses their existing trail system,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “We also enjoyed the town atmosphere and knowing there were lots of 4×4 enthusiasts close by. With that in mind, we adapted the race day schedule so local enthusiasts can come watch the race and still have time to go out and run the trails themselves.”
Drivers that are confirmed to race at this event include Birmingham Locals in the Blue Torch Fab car, Adam Carter and Bill Baird of Bill Baird Motorsports from Kentucky. The Robby Bobby team of Roger King will be racing and a field of Stock 4×4 vehicles is already forming with Scott Prince, Kenn Hite and Kevin Hite already registered. Also attending will be stalwarts of the Central Series Kyle Bruso and Tony Arledge. Many more are scheduled to attend, and you are also welcome to join. With only some simple safety requirements, anyone is welcome to come and race!
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 fees and payout information go to 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 April 27th. Qualifying for the 4400 4×4 group starts at 9am. Side by side racing action starts at 10am when four classes take the course at the same time for a one hour grand prix finish race: UTV, Trail Class, Stock, and Modified Stock. Following at 11:30am, the professional 4400 4×4 drivers will race for three hours with a grand prix finish at approximately 2:30pm. The winners of each class are determined by the most number of laps completed in the set amount of time. The awards ceremony and cash payout 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. For additional details go to http://www.werocklive.com/events/dirt-riot-southeast-round-2.
The race course is approximately 3.5 miles of good racing terrain. Gray Rock has a lot of elevation changes and tight technical trails that were connected to utilize most of their existing trail system. The course is twisty with wooded hillsides and washout areas that cross the trails that will keep the drivers busy and on their toes, while choosing not to use some areas that were previously planned including the bunny slopes area fearing that too much moisture would make racing impossible. 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-southeast-2-gray-rock-al
