Johnson Announces Three-Race Off-Road GP Schedule

Recommended Posts

Former CORR champion and multi-time AMA supercross and motocross champion Ricky Johnson has announced a schedule for the 2009 Ricky Johnson Offroad GP presented by Lucas Oil Products.

The three-race series, which will be sanctioned by the United States Auto Club (USAC), and a year-end banquet is scheduled to take place as follows:

  • February 27-28 (Sportsman 27th, Pro 28th)Manzanita Speedway - Phoenix, AZ
  • March 20-21 (Sportsman 20th, Pro 21st)Perris Auto Speedway - Perris, CA
  • October 30-31 (Sportsman 30th, Pro 31st)Las Vegas Motor Speedway - Las Vegas,
  • NV November 1 (Offroad GP Banquet)

The series will also be aired in three one-hour shows on SPEED Channel, with expert commentators Ken Stout and Cameron Steele confirmed as the on-air talent.

Each event will host GP 4, GP 2, GP-Lite, Pro ATV, Superlite and Pro Buggy as professional clases while Single Buggy, UTV, Trophy Karts, Amateur ATV and a Pre-Runner class will be categorized as Sportsman classes, with Sportsman-class points earned at an Offroad GP counting toward the CORR Sportsman Championship as well.

“After speaking with CORR’s President Cissy Baldwin, I feel that the Offroad GP Triple Crown will not conflict with the CORR or WSORR Championship series,” Johnson said in a press release issued by the series. “We have a lot coming up for the inaugural 2009 season! Terrible Herbst will be the host hotel and marketing partner in coordination with their gas stations. We will also be working closely with SEMA for the last round of racing. I would like to thank everyone who supported our first race this past November and look forward to seeing you all in February!”

      Dirt Riot is hosting an off-road endurance racing in Vernal, UT on May 13th. We are looking for volunteers to help set up and work the event. Have you ever wanted to be behind the sense of the events you love to watch? Want free entry to the event and exclusive Dirt Riot t-shirt? Then come help us put on a great show.

If you are more interested in competing alongside some of the best teams in the country, we would love to have you compete with us. Our classes are designed to fit a wide range of off-road vehicles. Most trail rigs only take a few safety modifications to pass our tech inspection, and they are items every trail rig should have anyways. Check out our rule book for more information!

      We are looking for course workers with recovery rigs and set up help. As a course worker, you will basically just have the best seats in the house and get a t-shirt for helping out. We will position workers around the course with radios to keep the event coordinators informed about what is happen on the course. You will also need a vehicle with mild off-road capabilities and a reliable winch. If are able come out before the event we would love a hand getting the event site ready. We put on 18 events during the summer months and we cannot do it without volunteers like you.

The courses typically range from 4-8 miles in length and each race is timed for 1-3 hours, depending on class, the team that completes the most laps in that time wins. Push your rig too hard and you will not last the full race, drive too mildly and fall behind the pace. The key is to learn the track and know your rig’s capabilities. Spectators will enjoy seeing competitors drifting corners, hitting jumps, and taking on difficult rock sections. Dirt Riot has the same race classes as Ultra4 as well as a few more to allow anyone to bring their rig out and compete. Most trail rigs can pass inspection with little to no modifications. This is perfect for a club trail day, challenge your club members to a full race then stay and watch the pros race on the same course you just did.
