Dirt Riot 5.18.posterPLACERVILLE, CA   MAY 16, 2013:  Dirt Riot is very excited for this weekends UTV only Dirt Riot race at AreaBFE, in coordination with the Rally on the Rocks event in Moab, UT.  The UTV Sportsman Class may be stock vehicles with doors or door bars, 4 point harness, 1 fire extinguishers and a DOT Helmet.  “We are here to offer any UTV the opportunity to race in this very fun area.  We just ask for minimum safety requirements and drivers to have a smile the whole time, which shouldn’t be hard,” chuckled Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events.  “The course is fun and challenging, yet manageable for stock vehicles.  We are also encouraging spectators, friends and families to come out and cheer on the racers, the course that we have laid out is all on the upper section where the full 1.5 mile loop can be seen!  Dirt Riot is truly a race built around the racers and for the spectators.”

The Drivers Meeting will be at 9am on Saturday at AreaBFE.  Immediately following, the course will be open for Pre-Running.  Qualifying will start around 10am with a one hour race for the Sportsman Class and then a two hour race for the Pro Class. The winner of a Dirt Riot race is determined by the driver to complete the most laps in the set amount of time.  The awards ceremony will be immediately following.  Pro Class entry is $150 with 50% payback and Sportsman Class entry is $50 with no payback.  Enter to race now at http://alturl.com/vu4qu.
