DURANGO, CO – Four Corners 4×4 traveled to Tucson, Arizona to compete in the second round of the Dirt Riot Endurance Racing Southwest Series at MC Motorsports Park on April 5th. In Dirt Riot Endurance Racing, teams compete on a 5-10 mile long circuit during an established time limit. Competitor finishing order is determined by the number of laps completed by each within the time limit. The 2006 Jeep Wrangler LJ piloted by Jason Kaminsky and Rick Jenkins of Four Corners 4×4 suffered late-race mechanical breakage causing the team to finish in second place.
“Consistency is key. We would like to be at the top of the podium, but consistency in these races is what determines the series and overall titles for the season,” notes Kaminsky. “This was a tough race. The dust was thick, severely limiting our visibility. We were closing in on the leader when we veered slightly off track and into cactus. Continuing to drive hard, our track bar mount broke away eliminating the possibility of a win.” The Four Corners 4×4 team finished the 2013 Dirt Riot Southwest Series with a 2nd place overall title and is looking to improve to the top spot for 2014. The final event in the Southwest Series will be held in Cortez, Colorado on August 16th
The Four Corners 4×4 crew is set to defend their 2013 Series Title when the Dirt Riot Mountain Series kicks off on April 19th at AreaBFE near Moab, Utah.
