On The Road Again - The Word

Posted in News on February 16, 2015

Man, it’s been a busy month. What with the Hall of Fame ride, the LOORRS race at Elsinore, hitting Camp RZR then straight to SEMA followed a couple of day later with the two-lane Detour of Death getting to and from Ensenada and the Baja 1000; it was hectic, to say the least. I’m only sorry I didn’t get a chance to get to Huckfest this year. It looked like a blast.

Still, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Getting a chance to do all these things is a dream come true for us here at Dirt Sports + Off-Road. As true dirt enthusiasts, we’re always seeking out the best events and feature vehicles to bring to you, and being able to get behind the scenes for the whole story is just the cherry on top. I consider myself a photographer who can write (though some may question that ability), so being able to photograph such diverse events like the Baja 1000 and Camp RZR in one month is a blast.

We enjoy the chance of meeting the rest of you enthusiasts as well. Sure, we hang around the big-name race guys, but when we see them at a race, they are all business and don’t have much time for BS’ing. We pretty much need to be all-business too, as things are happening fast and there’s not much time to chitchat anyway.

When we see folks at events like the HOF Rally and Camp RZR—folks out having fun in the dirt—that’s when we really have a chance to take some time and enjoy ourselves. I’m heading out tomorrow morning to go on the King Shocks Family Fun Run, and I can’t wait. I just hope the old Exploder holds up.

I’ll tell you all about it soon. Until then, have fun, be safe, and we’ll see you next month.
