Dirt Series Round 3

Round 3 of the all-new Dirt Series ran at Pala Raceway in Fallbrook, CA this past weekend.

The Dirt Series is offering over $65,000 worth of cash and prizes, with contingency programs from GBC Motorsports, and STI Tire & Wheel that total over $20,000 each! As you can see if you’re looking for a place to compete in Southern California it’s well worth it to make this new series.

In case you’re just learning about it below are more details of the series….
This is a new style 8 round MX/ATV/UTV racing series that will be based in Southern California. The focus of the series is to bring new life back into the rich history of the area by utilizing properties that have never been raced before while still using existing core tracks or tracks unavailable to the public that can accommodate the series premise.

Being a new style series Dirt Series’ intent was to not go head to head with other races but branch off from their success of the FNL Summer Series held at Milestone MX and develop a stand alone race series that could excite the beg/amateur and pro racers, keeping the series and travel schedule within a budget minded privateer racer, sponsors, vendor and/or spectator range, integrate different racing environments and just put on a good time event!

And now here’s the photo highlights from the third round….

ImageRound 3 of the Dirt Series at Pala Raceway featured a beautiful San Diego breeze. The day could not have been nicer and the facilities at Pala are second to none. This AMA National Caliber track is a must see!

ImageThe series has momentum with growing numbers with new faces at every round.

Now to integrate different racing environments for the schedule we needed to step outside the box. While our schedule does include tracks like Cahuilla, Milestone, Comp Edge and Pala, but to fully be set apart from all other series we began stepping outside conventional thoughts and brought in an old school property for round 8 called Rattlesnake located in Colton, CA and encompasses over 500+ acres of available land to design the inaugural Rattlesnake GP. Along with this low keyed but famous riding area we pulled in a stadium to open the doors to amateur stadium racing. Route 66 Motorplex gives The Dirt Series the ability to create a stadium track and incorporate all these racing environments into this series. This will allow for a unique, exciting and much talked about grassroots series.
