The word from the Complex is that the water is draining well and the track is beginning to be reconstructed! They are toning down the jumps and putting in some straightaways to make the racing more interesting.
Phil Haas from ClubMX is down working the track, so you know it’s going to be awesome!
According to Victory Sport’s Sam Gammon, the track is too wet for practice on Saturday.
The race is still being held on Sunday, as of this posting the schedule on Sunday should be:
Gates open at 6:00am.
Signup at 7:00
Sunday morning Church Service at 7:00am
Practice at 8:00
Racing after practice (usually 9:30)
We have been getting a lot of questions about this weekend. First, let me clear up the weather concerns: The race is being held on our SAND Motocross track. As you racers know, wet sand is an awesome racing surface and it drains well. All indications so far are that the race will be held.
Second, Victory Sports is running this event along with District 29. The best place to get specific information is directly from Victory Sports at: 423-323-5497 – 8:00 TIL 4:00PM, or CONTACT@VICTORY-SPORTS.COM. Here is a link to the schedule they use to run their Ultra Series races:
We’re very excited to have this event and we can’t wait to see all of you there!
In an effort to thank everybody that’s helped make the HRD Complex a success, we’re offering a Half Price weekend, March 14th and 15th! $10 for trails and $15 for tracks.
Well, the Mideast Racing Opener was huge! There were tons of riders competing, and the atmosphere was awesome! Thanks to everyone from the Mideast Crew, and all the riders and spectators that came out the the Complex! One of our owners had this to say:
Mideast was packed 586 riders lined up to get the job done. Been a very long weekend but fun. Get ready for the AMA to roll into town this week at the HRD Complex for some exciting motocross racing next Sunday. Practice on Saturday to dial in the sand track for the big event. The track has been cut down to a 1:40 lap time for a pro level rider, a little different than what the regulars have been running on, nothing major though. See all of you on Saturday and Sunday.
We saw lots of friends out racing including HRD Suspension’s Megan Mercer!
Had my first adult 2 hour race today! It was a lot of fun. I finished 8th out of 12. I would have finished better if we wouldn’t have had 2 pro women racers in our class! It was a good learning experience and I’m ready for the next round on March 23rd. Thanks to all my sponsors for the support: HRD Suspension, Spy goggles, Fuel, and S-Tech.
Thanks to everybody for making this event so much fun and such a big success! We have lots of pictures and some videos we’re uploading, so check back for more soon!
After our Mideast Race today, we will be opening the tracks and trails to everyone on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. ATVs will be allowed on the tracks for the first time!
We will be closing on Thursday and stay closed until our Ultra Series race starts on Saturday.
Today the complex is open for practice on our Sand Track only! The trails are closed, as we have a race taking place there tomorrow! The Mideast crew has a practice loop for their racers, see www.mideastracing.com for details.
