The carpet keeps moisture from evaporating which helps the soil get more compacted, it also keeps the tires from rutting out the trails and widens the impact foot print of the tires. When the dirt is finally packed in the carpet is removed and optimum grip and smoothness can enjoyed. It also keeps mud from flingin up in your face, but that is secondary.
