Offroad racing endurance event set this weekend in Rhea County

The East Coast Offroad Racing Series stops at the Kizzar property in East Tennessee this weekend.

According to organizers, the venue at 35 Pitts Gap Road in Graysville has hosted 4x4 events for years, but this will be the first endurance event at the facility.

Competitors in the race will be driving 4x4 and UTV classes of vehicles, from stock Jeeps and trucks to full-custom race buggies with high-horsepower engines. The course, which features rocky terrain and open, rolling hills, will test both the speed and rock-crawling abilities of the participating teams.

Qualifying is 6 to 10 p.m. today under the lights; racing is 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday.

Food and vendors will be on-site.

Admission is $15 per day, $25 for a two-day pass; children 8 and younger get in free. Camping is available for $5 per site per night.
