Friday Feature: Dirt Wurx

Call us moto geeks if you want, but we’ve always been fascinated by watching the Dirt Wurx crew conduct track maintenance during intermissions at Supercross races. The Dirt Wurx guys pilot their bobcats and bulldozers around the track as skillfully as the AMA pros ride their bikes on it. Equally impressive is how quickly Rick Winkler and his crew build each Supercross track, week after week.

So, to fulfill our inquisitiveness, we spent some time with the Dirt Wurx guys as they constructed the track for the San Diego Supercross a few weeks ago. In this week’s Friday Feature Video, Rich tells us about the company, what goes into track design and construction, and even shares his thoughts on the two-stroke/four-stroke debate.
