Dirt World motorsports complex now open in West Iredell
BY HALEY JONES
Iredell County residents can experience the bumps, jumps and thrills of fast-action motorsports at Dirt World, a family-friendly venue that opened on Saturday.
The Dirt World complex, which was a year in the making, is tucked away on a 70-acre farm at 217 Purebred Drive near the intersection of Interstate 40 and Stamey Farm Road.
In developing the facility, Mooresville residents Alycia and Todd Stewart wanted to create a park for everyone from young riders to experienced enthusiasts.
Young riders can start their venture on a flat-planed circle. From there, riders can progress to a beginners’ track lined with basic stunts. As their skills progress, riders can make their way to the intermediate children’s track which features a motocross-like terrain.
Adults (and intermediate youths) can enjoy a 1.3-mile Grand Prix. The trail is open to both dirt bikes and side-by-sides. In addition to the 30 acres of track, riders can explore 40 acres of wooded trails and a track for remote-controlled vehicles. The wooded trail will be open to bikes and SXS.
The Stewarts also plan to offer a comfortable club atmosphere with shade, televisions, snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.
Dirt World will be open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 6 p.m. The cost is $25 for adult riders and $20 for riders under age 16. Spectators enter the complex for free. After 10 visits, riders get a free day at the complex.
Please note that rental bikes are not available. Riders must bring their own bikes, side-by-sides or UTVs. Quads are not allowed at this point in time.
