Welcome to the American Woods Racing Championship Series
update - Friday, April 17, 2015

 This is a Yamaha,can am,Gbc tire contingency round of racing!! Couple points to go over before race time. 1 pit riding, there is to be none, for the safety of our racers and to protect land owners for insurance reasons. If you think you need a machine to get around on, you must go to registration and tell them and we will case by case decide if you can use it. You will sign wavier and receive sticker if approved 2 last race we had some pit crews/family members riding out on the track to find there racer, broke down, pics or ?? This will not be tolerated and racer will be disqualified. We have course marshals that will tend to any problem with racer. If and when we need you, we will come to you and at that time you may be able to help out. 3 CHEATERS We don't want you PERIOD. If you can't stay within the twenty feet of arrows, this isn't the race series for you. 343 will make you a sweet plaque delivered for $25. Much cheaper then race fee's. Racers, pit crews, spectators, if you see someone where they shouldn't be please get there number if possible and report them to AWRCS staff. On a case by case we will go over with the accused racers and we will deal with them. Last race we did penalize racers and thought we caught racers cutting only to find out they were pit crews looking for there racer or ?? We don't have time for this and you or your racer will be disqualified. 4 TRASH you make it you take it PERIOD. We have trash bags at registration if needed. Anyone caught leaving trash,tires,dirty diapers,etc will not be welcomed back. 5 Fires are a round by round if permitted. No nails/screws in wood and you are responsible for putting out fires and taking wood,rocks,fire rings with you. We don't want to damage our cutters or land owners cutters. 6 If you start on a machine you must finish and race same machine whole race. Ok enough! Weather looking great for weekend of racing no rain! We took out the big creeks And should have the paving to track done by Saturday. Lets go racing! Ten seconds!!
