UTVWC Pit Crew Challenge presented by The Fab School

The UTV World Championship Pit Crew Challenge presented by The Fab School is a celebration of the dedicated pit captains, mechanics, and volunteers that spend countless hours prepping, maintaining and fixing off-road race vehicles before, during, and after they compete. As the margin between first and second overall winner at The UTV World Championship becomes more and more narrow each year, the difference between a victory and second place undoubtedly comes down to the speed of a pit stop during the epic race!  The showdown will be held at the UTVWC Race Course Infield on Thursday, April 4th at 7:30pm. The event is free and open to the public.

The pit crew challenge is open to race teams only!
