USMA Supports Process to open New Off Road Facility
USMA Joins Don Stodola of G-Force Racing Gear and Professional Racer Jarit Johnson for a Tour of Dirt World Prior to Opening Day.
Dirt World Motorsports Complex is now open and attracting off road enthusiasts from all over the region, who are eager for more off road places to ride their dirt bikes and UTV's. What was a 70 acre farm that motorists passed by is now a professionally developed off road riding and event facility that is already driving new economic benefits to the area.
Owners Todd and Alycia Stewart have combined their backgrounds in real estate, property management and off road racing to develop the concept and business plan behind Dirt World. The USMA worked with the ownership group early on to help secure a right fitting location, guide the permitting process and consult on community relations. The family friendly off road park has something for every age and skill level with four-tracks and over five-miles of woods trails.
Professional Off Road Racer and former NASCAR Driver Jarit Johnson took notice of the facility and has already opened mechanic services with plans for a driving school at Dirt World. The Kryptic Side by Side Series held a test day at the track and has scheduled a racing event later this month. More special events are in the works. Already the facility is drawing in hundreds of people each weekend.
"This was a case where everyone recognized the win-win. The community understood the positive economic benefits and the track was careful to work with the community early on to address any concerns. The USMA helped guide the process and we are always encouraged when we see everyone enjoy the positive impacts of Motorsports," said Robert Johnson, USMA Director of Government Affairs.
