Motocross Race This Weekend

Looking forward to some great racing this weekend!  Weather is looking good and track updates completed.  Start is now straight across the track eliminating the hard right turn from previous races.  Several more jumps constructed making this track even more exciting.  Camping open Friday night with practice Saturday and race Sunday.  Click on the motocross section to see weekend schedule.  Hopefully weather will be kinder to us than last time!!

Concessions NOT available this weekend so please bring food and drink.  Malone’s General Store (2 miles from the park) has pizzas and wings that can be ready in 15 minutes!

Thanks to Twisted Jeeps!!

Had a good time with the folks from Twisted Saturday cutting out a new trail!  This trail Starts on the gravel road heading to the shop on Penny Lap and winds along the bluffs east and north.  Intent for this trail is a mild level 3 (stock Rubicon can handle) but when Twisted gets involved the optional obstacles you can take on this trail are definitely out of control.  They have this trail weaving through some big rock formations and I can’t wait to hit this trail myself.  Total trail length will hit a mile so definitely a great addition!

Thanks to all who came out for  Saturday’s climb.  These drivers put on an incredible show and broke a whole bunch of parts!

Wes Kean took home the honors and a thousand bucks.  Not only was he the only driver to conquer the hill but let it all hang out and rolled end over end on his victory lap.  Figure it will take the prize money to fix but one great vid!  Wes claimed the hill on his third attempt taking about 39 seconds to do it.  Good job and great driving.

Josh Rholing, Clay Parrish, Gary Smith, Henry Stanford, and Adam Adair put on a good show as well but the middle stump ultimately took it’s toll on the rigs.  Pretty much carnage on the hill but a good time had by all!!!!

Look for videos on HP forum.  Busted Knuckle was there and should have some spectacular footage.
