They have supported so much of what we do at the site and they jumped at the chance to be a part of our first ever race event. Its support from companies like Method that makes what we do at UTVUnderground.com so enjoyable and we couldn’t be more stoked to have them on board for the UTV World Championship!” stated UTVUnderground.com CEO/Founder Joey “Joey D” DiGiovanni.
The four-day event format will feature one full day of racing, contingency and tech in downtown Laughlin, demo and enthusiast rides, and a business-to-business UTV industry summit. The UTV World Championship is part of The Best in The Desert (BITD) Off-Road Racing Association series and will be marketed, co-produced, and covered for television by motorsports media heavyweights, Mad Media. The format will bring together UTV desert racing, UTV motocross style short-course racing, and enthusiast rides, into one massive multi-day event on the edge of the Colorado River in Laughlin, Nevada. The event will also be a showcase for UTV manufacturers and aftermarket manufacturing companies. Enthusiasts and racers will be able to pre-run the racecourse in stock UTVs during the “Family Fun Poker Run”.
We’re a racer-first company that depends on crucial feedback from drivers and teams to make all of our products the best they can be,” says Kevin Fitzgerald of Method Race Wheels. “With the formation of the UTV World Championships, we’re confident our UTV wheels will reach new levels of success.”
