rd1 atv in the books - Sunday, April 06, 2014

 Shout out to Cole Richardson overall atv racer, Rd1 atv's/utv in the books, record racers and property held up well, pits dried up a ton and woods are in great shape. Will see dust tomorrow in sections, woods are loamy and tacky. mini 1 mile youth 5.25 miles adult with hard lines 12.5ish take easy lines 13.5 miles 10 seconds!!

RD1 updates - Tuesday, April 01, 2014

 Ok, who can't wait to start off the ten seconds for opening round of AWRCS racing! Mini track 1 mile, blue arrows and goes through scoring. Youth atv 4.5 miles with a lot of new sections. Youth bikes 5-5.5 miles with a lot of changes. Orange arrow with black background. adult tracks 10-12 miles orange arrow with black background with a lot of new changes. The main pits will be up at first level and pitting down in lower field is available as well. Big bike goes through field franks hill climb and easy way to right hand side of it and youth racers come past hunting lodge also for good pitting down there. We do have easy paths that adds time on the hard lines for adult,youth,utv's This is a factory Can am and Yamaha contingency round of racing with youth racers also on Yamaha's! Utv racers Can am paying out to top three in heavy class $1000.-$500-$250 all new track with some good hills thrown in and tight woods and a hard tight right hander thrown in. I'm thinking you may need 4wd on a few of the climbs. The mighty mule 610xc and my teryx 800 has been through track. Sounds like we are getting a bunch of utv's this year and we will be doing dead engine start and may have to make a few lines with a minute in between. The series is growing and we had record new sign up and they doubled from previous years! 10 SECONDS to the flag drop. We will see who all has been busy this winter prepping there machines and cardio workouts.

What this means to pit crews as they can look where there racer is from there smart phones to tell there racers where ever they are out on the track! We will be keeping are credit card transponders for the 2014 season so no need to exchange as they are working good and moto tally still uses them also himself. We will be filling in schedule as we are checking out a few new venues spots also. We are looking to expand help this year and have added a few and still need a few more for our growing numbers and to keep everyone safe out there.

We had a lot of action this year starting in the mini class with a young man winning  atv and getting second in mini bike overall's. iron man goes to Logan Carlisle With Logan McClafferty beating him by 3 points for the overall in mini bike. Going on to youth a ton of battles going on through out the year with atv racer Shane Pitzer taking overall with missing a perfect season by 1 point. He decided to move to adult 91cc+ for last race and turned a lot of heads with running  1st in class on third lap and in top 20 until pit crew ran him out of gas. Big brother watch out!! Conner Karkowsky missing perfect season also in youth bike by 1 point and decided to go to adult race also last race and came through with front flat on first lap to end his day. Moving onto the adults class with atv racer Pat McGuire coming out on top for the year and winning overall with Cody McClung and Clint Graff rounding out top three overall's. Bikes going in to last round Mike McGinnis was already in position to take 1st overall with Brett Zofchak and Nick Haftl rounding out top three. Moving onto the UTV class Team Hendershot taking 1st overall with team Plavi racing and rounding out top three was Team Mitchell racing.

Breast cancer awareness Rd9 Parker Pa - Tuesday, September 24, 2013

 Noon each day we will set off balloons for breast cancer awareness! All monies will stay local as clarion hospital is buying/building new mammogram facility. We have expanded pit parking with our growing numbers, so plenty of rv parking pitting available. All will start on starting line and go through scoring as we moved the mini track to other end of property. You can watch whole track down through backside valley for mini's! We are changing up tracks for youth and adult and will be using some new property as well.  


 We had a good turnout at Powerline. So we decided to give back a little more this year on our back to school round. We picked up 6 new computer packages to give away. One each day of pee wee,youth and adult (must be in school or college) Sorry old folks!! For this round only the kenda tires will go to the adults out of school. Don't want the oldies to feel left out and most of them couldn't turn on a lap top anyway.
