The Wide World of Off-Road Motorsports

Posted by on January 14, 2012

Off-Roading? What exactly is it?  The Wide World of Off-Road Motor-sports covers a lot of activities.  It’s Trail riding. Rock Crawling. Rock Racing.  The King of the Hammers!  Blasting around the dunes. Pre-running.  Desert Racing.  The Baja 1000!  Racing up 14,000 Foot Mountains. The Pikes Peak International Hil Climb (PPIHC). It’s Mud Bogging.  Mud Racing.  It’s Overland Exploration. Overland Racing. The Dakar Rally.  It’s Motocross. Enduro Racing. Hare Scramblers.  The Grand National Cross Country Series. It’s exploring back-country roads and ghost towns across the U.S.A.

It’s rallies, major club events and charity events.  Bronco Round-Up events.  Ultimate Adventure.  Top Truck Challenge.  Camp Jeep.  Jeeper’s Jamborees.  The Rubicon Trail.  Easter Jeep Safari.  Moab Utah. Toys for Tots runs.  Crawl for the Cure, and many, many more.

It’s done on dirt bikes, dual sports and ATVs.  It’s done in side-by-sides, sand rails, trucks, Jeeps and purpose built buggies!  If it’s got a motor and goes in the dirt, it pretty much qualifies!

Off-Roading truly offers something for anyone and everyone.  All ages.  All experience levels.  Just about all budgets.

While I grew up riding those evil three-wheelers and quads, The Off-Road Reference is primarily focused on 4×4 trucks and Jeeps.
