After a 12 year hiatus in Arizona, the Dirt Nitro Challenge returns to it’s natural home – California, and where it all started for Joey and his race: Perris.

“After much delay and speculation I am so excited to announce that I have signed a new contract today for the new home of the 2019 DNC!!  I am happy to announce for the 20th annual event, we are bringing the race back to Cali and the event will be held at the Southern California fairgrounds in Perris CA!!

It is an awesome facility and with all of the great things we are looking for in a venue…We will have a HUGE area and tons of dirt for the 1/8th track. Right next to that will be the 1/5th track and right next to that will be the 1/10th either U4 or some other 1/10th vehicle track!!  The new venue offers onsite motor home camping, track side pitting, covered pits, restrooms, concessions and beautiful Southern California weather.  The Ontario CA international airport is 30 miles from the track and there are hotels 20 minutes away as well as an rv park across the street.  We are so excited to be bringing the DNC back to its original home turf for the 20 yr anniversary. We look forward to this new and exciting year and hope to see you all there!!
