The name of the club extended from an-off road motorcycle event called "The Desert 100" near Odessa, WA in April, 2009. At the event, during the first 50 mile loop of the Ironman Poker Run, several of the club's members found themselves covered in dirt. Dirt bikes tend to get people dirty when they are behind a "roosting" dirt bike.
In October, 2009, The Dirty Crew submitted for official recognition with the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows.

The April 2010 Desert 100 event brought The Dirty Crew’s membership to a total of six with the addition of Wendy. Everyone raced on Sunday.
