Where it All Began

The Dirty Road-A-Coaster is the product of, mastermind, Mark Dakoulos and a dream he had to host this beautiful ride in his hometown of Hartland Vermont. Mark mapped out the course and drives the lead-out vehicle for the DRoC course every year. Mark and Pro Performance worked with Ray Sapp in the inaugural year of the Dirty Road-A-Coaster to bring this ride to reality. Ray was the director of the Hartland Recreation Department for more than 10 years and passed away suddenly in the summer of 2015 from complications during a routine surgery. We thought there was no better way to pay tribute to such a pillar of the community and someone who really helped bring this race to fruition in its first year than to name the race after him! As our race has been increasingly more popular we quickly outgrew the beautiful area that the Hartland Rec department could provide, thus the need to move the race to Ascutney location.
