The Dirt Nitro Challenge – a race that has probably racked up more weather-related stories than any other, yet it is always fondly remembered by those who attend it. Originally the Nitro Challenge was held not in Arizona, but in California in Hemet; at the track only known as ‘Hemet’. A decade later the race still going strong and the man behind all of it is Joey Christensen – master track builder with his brand “The Dirt”. It’s location from 2007-2011 was the Nitro Pit, north of Phoenix, AZ – a facility located in what is pretty much desert all around. N.America’s elite are always found scrapping for the internationally prestigious Nitro Challenge title. 2012 saw the ‘DNC’ change venue having spent 5 years at the Nitro Pit, with the Fear Farm, located centrally in Phoenix, AZ hosting the 13th Dirt Nitro Challenge in 2012.
