We do not assign numbers. Numbers are “run what you brung” on a first-come, first-served basis. You may run whatever numbers you wish unless a rider racing that season has previously entered one of our series races with that same number. You will then be asked to change or modify your number. For round 1, riders who raced the prior year will receive preference if two racers have the same number.
You must run the SAME number you start the series with on three sides of your bike during the entire series for series points & awards. If your bike breaks down and you are changing bikes, YOUR ORIGINAL BIKE NUMBER MUST BE AFFIXED TO THE REPLACEMENT BIKE. It is also imparitive that you notify scoring of the change in bikes.
#1 Plates are not awarded to each ability level. Series trophies will be presented to the top 1st – 3rd finishers in each ability level. All Expert, Amateur and Novice skill level riders are eligible to win a #1 series plate if they win their respective division. Example; an Amateur level rider may win the open division on points because the next closest expert may not have raced 4 rounds or scored enough points to earn the top spot in that division. This is also another reason to race all rounds in the series because every rounds score is counted towards the championship in your class & division.
AMA Amateur Rulebook to be followed and AMA membership is required.
Sidehack driver is the rider of record and will accumulate the points for the Series. This is because many drivers change passengers from time to time.
Signups are offered online for each round. We strongly encourage you to sign up online for several reasons, the most important of which, it will shorten the sign-up lines on the morning of the event. Sign ups will open the day prior to each event from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. If you are there the day before, please utilize this opportunity. Sign ups open when the gates open on race day unless otherwise noted. If you choose not to use online signups we encourage every racer to use the tools section on this website to Pre-Print their Entry Forms. This will make the sign up line go faster and make scoring easier.
Those who utilize the online sign-up procedure will be automatically entered into a weekly drawing for free prizes. These could be anything from free race entries, sponsor gift cards and discount coupons to merchandise. Online entry will be much easier than in year's past. Once you get to sign-ups go to the pre-entry line you will receive your practice numbers and sign the print & sign that is it.
After you establish your pit area, you must complete the signup process prior to the first scheduled practice.
Riders are responsible for any incorrect entry applications. If you circle the wrong skill level, event, engine size or forget to list your AMA number, this may result in you not being scored . PLEASE ASK FOR HELP.
All riders must present their AMA card at signups. Use of shared AMA cards will result in mandatory disqualification. If you need to purchase AMA Membership, please see the AMA registration line at sign-ups.
Please be sure to pick up the RIDER'S INSTRUCTIONS and the PRACTICE SCHEDULE AT SIGN-UPS. THERE WILL BE NO RIDER'S MEETING. Make sure you read the Rider's Instructions as important rules are discussed and will be enforced. It is each rider's responsibility to read the rider's instructions and know the rules.
