Racing Saturday August 22nd Starting at 9am
New Location outside Grand Junction, Colorado
BLACKFOOT, ID AUGUST 20, 2015: Amazing to believe that the Dirt Riot 2015 regular season of racing is coming to a close this weekend at a brand new location in Grand Junction, Colorado. The final race is a highly anticipated double points race, allowing racers to earn series points for both the Mountain and Southwest series, along with National Points. The National Points race will conclude at the National Rampage on September 26th in Bridgeport, Texas. Fast racing action starts at 9am and will go until at least 4pm with awards immediately following on Saturday August 22nd.
“This is a brand new location and course for us, the racers and spectators,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “The spectator areas are easy to access and see nearly all areas of the course which is about 3.5 miles with a mixture of short course and desert sections mixed with big elevation changes. For our racers, the course closest in style would be Ram Off-Road Park in Colorado Springs. It is going to be a very fast course with a lot of technical areas as well.”
Looking at the Series and National points standings, there are heated battles in most classes in each series. A few drivers that don’t typically race in the Mountain or Southwest series are making the trip to maintain their National standings.
