"Rugged Radios is excited to be the presenting sponsor of the DIRT EXPO for the 5th year! The DIRT EXPO is one of the year's biggest shows, and the Arizona Expos team always finds a way to take it to another level. We can't wait to see the show come to life in its new home, State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, and the entire Rugged Team looks forward to reconnecting with the Arizona off-road community this December. We hope to see you there!" States Rugged Radios

Who could say it better than Rugged Radios themselves? Everyone here at the DIRT EXPO is super excited to have Rugged Radios back as the presenting Sponsor of Arizona's Original and Largest Off-Road & UTV Expo. Over five years as the "Presenting Sponsor" is a testament to the DIRT EXPO's strength and value to the Industry and the Arizona Off-Road & UTV marketplace. 

Of course, there will be deals. Rugged always has the latest and greatest innovations available in the Off-Road communication segment. DIRT EXPO customers know that when Rugged comes to town, they can expect excellent customer service, help with issues, and trust 30 years of communication experience from Owner Greg Cottrell and his team. 

This year make it a Rugged Radios one. Stop by the Rugged Radios booth and have the Rugged team members help you identify the communication system(s) that you and your family, friends, race team, chase team, or group need to keep you in constant communication out on the trail, at the race, in the dunes, or in the chase vehicle.


When Greg Cottrell, Founder, and President of Rugged Radios, started this company, he set out to revolutionize the offroad communications industry. That dream grew into the communications giant that is Rugged today, manufacturing communications for Work, Race, and Play Communications For Any Environment.

The DIRT EXPO is Arizona’s Original and Largest Off-Road & UTV Expo. Since 2002 Andy Myers has been putting on Arizona’s Premier Off-Road event.  Originally called the Arizona Sand Expo the Event grew into one of the States Largest Expos and encompassed the entirety of the Arizona State Fairgrounds. In 2009, the Expo was canceled due to the economic downturn.

In 2015, the Expo returned as the International Off-Road & UTV Expo. In 2022 it was decided to scrap the name and go with a New Venue, New Name, and a New Plan. The 2022 DIRT EXPO is being held at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. “Everything Off-Road” is the mission.
