DIRT WURX hammers out a 16-hour track build at SLC, track’s covered and it starts snowing!

After a marathon clean-up job to get Seattle’s Qwest Field back into pristine order, Rich Winkler and the DIRT WURX USA crew packed up and drove 1,000 miles straight through to Salt Lake City and, with no sleep, built the Rice-Eccles Stadium SX track in 16-hours on Tuesday.

That had to be the softest, most Jelloey SX track we’ve ever built in the history of Dirt Wurx. The dirt was mostly sand and it was saturated before we even trucked it into the stadium.

The Houston Supercross track is horseshit! Seriously.

Rodeo dirt, straw, sand and manure - a combination which actually makes a great surface for racing dirt bikes.

Monster AMA Supercross in Atlanta

Monster AMA Supercross heads back east

We had Indy and Atlanta the past couple weeks. Ahhh … back east with a roof over our heads. Not that we don’t absolutely dig the racing and people on the West Coast, mind you, but that back-to-back-to-back schedule of cranking out tracks in record time – and then having to cover them from the rain

Monster AMA Supercross Notes, Anaheim 3
By Rich Winkler

Track
Third time was the charm for Anaheim. Though we had a bit of inclement weather during the week (again), Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were all nice days to build a supercross track.

Believe it or not, the dirt actually improved over the course of the six weeks we'd been in southern California. Continual mixing and aerating by moving it around between supercross and monster truck made for some ideal dirt at Anaheim 3.

Dave Prater (Feld Motor Sports) and I combined on this past week's track to give it an old school feel. When you watch the footage you'll see there was no real rhythm section. We used the over/under, some jumps on curves, what we called the "Wall of Death," and a huge, nearly 360-degree sand section.

The A3 track had a decidedly different feel and the fans appreciated it.

Racing
There were a number of good battles and near one-minute lap times. Lots of passing and a championship points chase that came out tied after six rounds of racing on the West Coast.

Upcoming
Speaking on behalf of both crews at Dirt Wurx and Feld Motor Sports, we're ready to be out of the weather in California and to a facility - Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis) - with a roof over our heads! I'm really proud of my guys and Prater's crew for pulling off the West Coast races in what ended up being the toughest back-to-back-to-back weeks (Anaheim 2, San Francisco and San Dieog) of conditions we've ever faced.
