DSC 4200 220x146 Battle Rock Offroad Park Was Perfect Location for Dirt Riot Double Points Showdown

PLACERVILLE, CA   JULY 16, 2013:  Battle Rock Offroad Park in Cortez Colorado was the scene of some high horsepower action and thrilling finishes for both the Mountain and Southwest 2013 Dirt Riot 4×4 Endurance Series.  The heat of the day was minimal compared to the heat of the competition, as the points would reveal multiple series champions at the end of this one race.

“The Cortez, Colorado event is always a good time with great support from the Jimmy’s 4×4 crew and the drivers that come from all over for the one opportunity to earn double National points at a race,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events.  “The course was fast, dusty and hot. But that didn’t detour anyone from joining us on the holiday weekend, and we appreciate that.” Read More→
