AZOP Press release for Heloderma Race Recap

heloderma-splashThe Arizona off Road Promotions Series headed to Gila Bend, Arizona for the Heloderma Grand Prix on November 30th.  The race took place a stone’s throw from Interstate 8 on a parcel of land that had been raced on many times in the past.  The place is commonly referred to as the dust bowl but AZOP had 310 Dust Control on site to ensure the dust would not be an issue.  The terrain was fairly beat up from many years of racing and testing but the AZOP team laid out a new course with fresh terrain and they graded many of the nasty beat-up sections.  The course offered tight sand switch backs, a few long fast straight-aways and some jumps and G outs.
