This four day event will take place February 14-17, 2013 in Quartzsite, AZ at the Tyson Wells Show Park and RV Grounds. "We have been out here in Quartzsite running trails for almost a month now as we prepare for this event. Every time we find a new trail, it is more fun than the last," said Five 2 Productions CEO, Jason Cobb. "This area got pounded by rains during the monsoon season. We have had our work cut out for us to find new routes and clean up debris in the washes to get through. The amount of water that moved through here in a short amount of time was amazing. It will make for a great event for sure," he added. With at least 3 events in 2013 the Desert Bloom Rally is the flagship event for 425 N. Central Lucky r! e (Hwy. 95) Numb HOURS ALL ry!

The event will begin on Thursday the 14th and will continue through Sunday the 17th. The Performance Plaza will offer manufacturers from the ATV and UTV industry and will be open to the public.
