The Talent Tank if Full With This One -- 2014 Dirt Riot MountainSpidertrax | Thom Kingston | CC BY 3.0

Nothing like being late to the congrats game, but better late than never. So first off, congrats to Clay Gilstrap & Lindsay Syler for taking top honors in last weekend’s Dirt Riot race in Moab, UT. Their talent tank was full all day Saturday, with Clay and Lindsay making short work of the Area BFE terrain. Always fun watching a race team who just has everything together, it was certainly their race to win. Congrats!

Moab is always a great place to wheel, and race, hopefully the few photos we shot at last weekend’s race give homage to that. So, keep an eye out on our Facebook page this week for a few new racing photos. Till then, back to work we go.

It’s the weekend, time for another race!

Just Your Average Weekend -- 2013 Dirt Riot Mountain 1Spidertrax | Thom Kingston | CC BY 3.0

Dirt Riot’s Mountain Series, home of heat based endurance style racing, heads to Moab this weekend. That’s April 19 at Area BFE in Moab, UT to be more exact. For those new to Dirt Riot, or the beautiful rock garden we all know as Moab, take it from us: this is one of the coolest races to be part of, spectator or racer alike. The course is 1st class, the scenery is breathtaking, and the field of competitors is so fierce action is simply guaranteed.

So, if you’re heading out to Moab for this year’s Easter Jeep Safari, head out to Area BFE on Saturday. You will not be dissapointed. Saturday’s schedule of events goes as follows:

Saturday April 19
Drivers Meeting @ 8:00 a.m.
Qualifying @ 9:00 a.m.
Trail/UTV @ 10:00 a.m.
4500/4600 @ 11:30 a.m.
4400 @ 1:30 p.m. & 3:00 pm.

We’ve wrapped up some of our favorite shots from this year’s Genright Ultra4s at Superlift competition, and man what a race it was. Congrats again to Chicky Barton for the main race win and Tom Wayes for taking 1st in the Ultra4 vs Rockbouncer shootout. Both of these rigs were powered by Spider 9 IFS axles, nothing like fueling the Solid Axle vs IFS debate :) .
