The 2013 Dirt Invert is brought to you by JConcepts and hosted by the One Hobbies off-road track in Peoria, Arizona. The main event format is unique and offers something different for the racers. Triple mains will be used for the A-main drivers and single extended mains with bump-ups will be used for all other mains. The Invert, something developed by Brian Kinwald and the JConcepts team, will challenge racers by changing the starting order based on the finishing order in the previous main. It’s simple, start your first A-main where you qualified and the mains after will be started in the inverse order of how you finished the main before. Points from all three mains will be used to determine the overall winner so performance in each main is important. Speed and strategy is a must and the driver must keep it cool to score the best finish possible in each main. The invert format is developed and endorsed by IFMAR World Champion Brian “Dirt” Kinwald. Registration is available on RCsignup.com.
