Rally on the Rocks – May 2019
Moab Utah is often called the “Mecca of 4-Wheeling”, so it’s no wonder their yearly event Rally on the Rocks is always a huge hit. While the event is specifically only for race-ready UTVs, you can still enjoy riding around town before, after, or during the event, if you so choose, so long as your UTV is “street legal” according to Utah’s laws.
There are plenty of trails to choose from for the event. But it’s recommended that you register early! Registering before you get to the event will help to ensure you get to ride the trail you want, and it also gets you a sweet t-shirt to commemorate the event. You can sign up at the event, but there’s no guarantee for trails, and unfortunately, you won’t get that t-shirt. The Rally runs from May 14th to 18th and registration is open now!
White Knuckle Event – May 2019
So we’ve talked about the Mecca of 4-Wheeling, how about the “Woodstock of ATV and SXS events”? This White Knuckle Event, held in Huntsville, TN is a great event for the entire family. There are obstacle courses, professional drag strips, food trucks, performances by the Nitro Circus crew, and live music from some of the most famous names in country music! Past artists include heavyweights like David Alan Coe, Gretchen Wilson, Uncle Kracker, and many, many more!
This year the event will be running from May 24th-26th, and tickets are available! And with Yamaha being one of the sponsors, you know it’s going to be an event filled with mud and good times.
4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals – June 2019

We all know your 4-wheeler looks great underneath all that mud, so show it off! And then show everybody how it looks when it’s getting dirty!
Jericho ATV Festival – August 2019

Music, 1,000 miles of trails, and great food are the appeals of the Jericho ATV Festival! Not to mention you get a great view of the beautiful white mountains! Come tear up some mud where the yuppies from Massachusetts come to vacation!
