|K5runner@hotmail.com||So are you guys going to look into having an event in SoCal next year? There is a bunch of people down here (if not more than anywhere else) that would participate.|

Yes, the rest of the Pacific Series has been cancelled.
The word just got finalized over the weekend and I am updating everything right now... http://www.werocklive.com/2012/2012-event-schedule/
1. The locations were a challenge and Rich didn't feel comfortable with holding an event someplace he hadn't been able to see first to ensure a quality Dirt Riot event. The other locations that had been pre-seen weren't able to get permitting etc done by event date times.
2. The car count at the first one was 'less than desirable'. Each of these are first time events, but after trying to reach out to some of the Pacific driver group it didn't look like the dates that were available would work well either.
Not two Negatives, but two potential negatives = Should focus on Success for next year.
So...instead of the event next week, they are going to utilize the time to go and search out the event sites that have been previously mentioned and see if they are an acceptable match for Dirt Riot to hit the area successfully next year!
It is a bummer, but I'm supporting his decision...
Here is what I would be wondering...focused on next year now....
How many people from NorCal (the bay & sac) would be willing to participate in a Pacific Dirt Riot knowing that it is generally in the OR, WA area?
No doubt there are a lot of you around there.....

Fawk..... really? That sucks.....
|07-24-2012 10:32 PM|
I heard its been cancelled.
Also looks like "2" (Monroe, WA) has been cancelled and so has "3" (Northern Cali IIRC)
Any word Rich? Surprised you guys haven't posted something this major.

I'm glad you finally got a Washington location put together. You will be surprised at the turn-out Rich. The first event on that property that I went to amazed me me how many folks were there.
Can you give us a hint as to the course layout? Milage? Laps?

|K5runner@hotmail.com||Well that sucks. I was looking forward to this.|

He's doing a (shorter) endurance race at M.A.V. as well to cap off his series in september. I hope to see MANY more events there for a long time to come. Its about time.

Pacific series 1 = Medford
Pacific series 2 = Monroe
Pacific series 3 = Samoa Sand Dunes

Dirt Riot is going to be in Monroe on August 3-4, we are in discussion on course and details as I write this
W.E.ROCK Rock Crawls are back in Goldendale on the 10-13
We had originally discussed with Straddleline last year about the 10-11 for Dirt Riot but could not find common ground to work on
I wish Beau the best of luck with his series and someday hope to work the 2 series together if possible.

8/10-8/11 has the new Monroe Adventure Park's big event, which should be supported as this would be Washington's first BIG private ORV park. I have a sneaky suspicion this is also one of the site's the Rich's are looking at.
8/11 is also the 4th race in the Best in the West series as Straddleline ORV park. Which a handful of local racers are in the Points Series.
Everything is getting stacked on top of each other, which is unfortunate.

Schedule on your web site says Aug 10-11 now for the Dirt Riot race. There is two other events going on that weekend in Washington as well.
Still no location. When and Where?
|05-29-2012 08:06 PM|
WEROCK Goldendale is the second weekend of August
We should be announcing a western Washington location soon for the Dirt Riot Race

|Big Rich||By the way, the date of said race will be August 3-4|
