Jason Kaminsky and Rick Jenkins returned to the dirt track this past Saturday for a Dirt Riot Endurance Racing event held at Colorado Off Road Extreme near Agate, Colorado.

Among 39 competitors in all classes, Kaminsky piloted the #4678, with Jenkins navigating, along an eleven-mile course of tight curves and high speed straights laid out across rolling pasture lands. Thirty-three miles in, only two minutes separated the top three 4600 class competitors. Eventually, the pace took its toll on the vehicle’s steering. The failure resulted in a roll-over on a slower section of the course. Both Kaminsky and Jenkins were uninjured and exited the car as the recovery team arrived on the scene. The car was quickly up-righted and moved from the racecourse. The team finished in fifth place in the 4600 class.

“It was really fun to compete on such a fast course. This track was a last-minute substitution for the event which was originally scheduled to be held at RAM Off Road Park in Colorado Springs. Lacking any rocks, it was a deviation from our typical 4×4 endurance courses. This event was more of a desert race, allowing us to reach speeds not previously attained during competition, even at King of the Hammers,” noted Kaminsky.

“There are a lot of people who make events like this successful, but I want to especially thank the recovery volunteers who quickly helped us off the course safely. Volunteers are a key component at all of our events and help us all to have safe, enjoyable events across the country,” said Jenkins.

Along the way, the team has a stop planned at Superchip’s headquarters in Ogden, Utah. Stay tuned for the story and pictures from our visit!
