The grounds of Castle Rock will soon be shaking once again as Dirt Quake USA III is almost upon us. Fables and folklore abound about last year’s event. The shenanigans blew up on social, from the late-night, free-for-all dirt track session that broke out in the parking lot to the boat crash. (Still not sure where that boat came from!) Dirt Quake is an old fashioned run-what-you-brung event, from choppers to bobbers to a little bit of everything in between. Hell, last year we even saw a sidecar and snowmobiles rumbling around the dirt track.
Part camp out, part party, part swap meet, and pure fun. Throw racing into the mix and you’ve the ingredients for a raucous good time. This year’s event sports a new wrinkle as Dirt Quake races will be run at night for the first time, followed by “bands, buddies, brews and chicken!” They’ve also added a bike show to Dirt Quake 2016.
Dirt Quake USA III will go down Friday, June 17 and Saturday, June 18, at the Castle Rock Race Track in Castle Rock, Washington. The first day sees a combination of pros, superhooligans, and amateurs thrashing around the nationally sanctioned ¼-mile dirt/clay oval. Saturday the costumed cast of Dirt Quake characters will mix it up.
