“We have always concluded these series’ together and it has always turned into a great show of racing and sportsmanship, in some manner,” said Rich Klein, President and founder of W.E. Rock Events. “With the close of the third year of Dirt Riot approaching as we finish this event, next weeks Central Series Final and then the National Rampage, we are sincerely appreciative of the racing community and excited about the continual growth of every event this year.”
The course is about ¾ mile longer than last year including a new water crossing, eliminating the old bridge that was washed out in a recent storm.

It has some great spectator areas, with multiple viewing locations that can give completely different experiences.
