Hate getting dirty, yet love off-roading

So here's the deal. I've never got along with dirt. I really don't like getting dirt on my hands, and if I do, I have the need to wash them right away. So it's a bit ironic that I love off-roading with quads, buggies, go karts, and motorcycles...it's one if the dirtiest sports out there! Just for the record, I bring a case of baby wipes to wipe all the dirt off of me before I come home.
