No rest for the wicked as DIRT WURX USA crew’s back in SX action after big global weekend

Busting out supercross tracks in a rainy southern California and London, DIRT WURX USA keeps the momentum going on both sides of the Atlantic

imgMONROE, N.Y. (Feb. 24, 2011) – With heavy rain immanent, members of the DIRT WURX USA crew knocked out the San Diego supercross track at Qualcomm Stadium in record time – getting it covered and race-ready for this past weekend’s seventh round of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship.

Led by crew chief Chris Blankenship in DIRT WURX USA boss’ Rich Winkler’s absence, the San Diego crew teamed up with Feld Motor Sports’ staff and basically ‘saved the day’ with a track that provided some really good racing at Qualcomm.

img“The guys had to come from Houston two days early, leaving that crew short handed for the race and the move out, to get this track done and covered by Tuesday afternoon,” explained Winkler. “In addition, some of them had to go on to Dodger Stadium to complete a Monster Jam course before the rain hit up there as well. It was a tough few days for sure … I’m super proud of the job they did.

“And congrats to Chad Reed for ending up on top after some great racing.”

With extra dry dirt stored and on hand for track repair situations, the DIRT WURX USA crew dealt with rain during Saturday night’s show in San Diego. “The conditions were challenging, but actually quite good despite the weather,” added Winkler.

On the other side of the pond Winkler and Dave Boisvert put the build on the Echo Arena track in Liverpool, England, for the final round of Future West Productions’ 2010-’11 British SX Series.

Located on the water at Albert Dock, typical UK rainy and cold weather for this time of year greeted the DIRT WURX USA crew. The track build would go well, according to Winkler, despite what he called “extremely wet dirt.”img

“We did the best we could, but cannot mix drying agents into the soil in the UK due to contamination issues when the dirt goes back to the source,” explained Winkler. “So the track was soft and conditions were challenging, but the ruts actually made for some great racing. Congrats to Tom Church for the Pro SX1 class on the British-made CCM.”

Added Future West’s John Hellam: “We couldn't be happier having Rich come to each of our events this year. Each of this years events were unique, but no matter what condition the dirt was in Rich always made it work and provided a superb track for the riders and spectators. And that is the reason Rich is The Man when it comes to building the best supercross tracks in the world. We look forward to a long relationship between Future West and DIRT WURX USA!”

DIRT WURX USA is now in Atlanta building the track out of the famous red Georgia clay for this Saturday’s (Feb. 26) Monster Energy Supercross round at the Georgia Dome.
