— Biggest & best event of the year —
Events in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area started as gatherings for quads, bikes, jeeps and sand buggies. Then the UTVs literally took over the entire dune scene. The larger events like Dune Fest and the Raptor Rally still exist, but not on the massive scale like UTV Takeover.
In four short years, Jim McIntire and Steve McCarthy have turned their passion for the sport and love of the people involved into arguably the biggest powersports riding event in the country. Whether you are into camping, exploring, shopping, racing or spectating, this event has it all. We attend the Oregon event every year both for coverage and just to enjoy the sport ourselves. The UTV Takeover event brand has expanded nationwide, so you have no excuse not to attend in the future. By the way, all of the racing and challenge activities are free. Here’s what the 2019 UTV Takeover held in Coos Bay, Oregon, looked like. The final event of the year will take place in the Little Sahara Sand Dunes in Waynoka, Oklahoma, September 25–29th.
