Chris at CMJ Raceway just let me know that they’ll be offering the new and hugely-popular 2-stroke exhibition class at the Hixton, WI climb on August 2nd. It’s been run at Red Wing and Mankato, MN this year and has immediately been the same size as the 450 class, as riders with CR/KX 500s and such jump at the chance for an extra ride on the hill. At Red Wing we were running it as 86-600cc, so anything basically from a 125 to an overbored KTM 550 fits right in. Don’t let the 2-stroke sit there while the 4-strokes get an extra class…double up on your 2-stroke too!
Mid-season standings after 3 of 6 rounds in the NAHA pro series have been posted on the NAHA website. Jason Smith, who won all 4 pro classes last year, currently has the lead in 3 of the 4 classes – having dropped to 5th place in the 450cc Exhibition class. Joe Shipman is the man in charge in that class at the moment…will Smith be able to regain the lead in the 450 class while maintaining the lead in the others? Will Shipman stay in control of the 450 class for the rest of the season? And what about the other top 5-ish riders, like Logan Mead, Bret Peterson, Tyler Cardwell, and Dusty & Nick Beer? There’s 3 events left – plenty of time for more shuffling of the deck.
Today’s event at CMJ Raceway in Hixton, WI has been canceled due to rain. The event will not be rescheduled.
The CCDR event on May 16th in White City, IL, was rained out – it’s been re-scheduled to July 11th. The D17 schedule has been updated.
Rapid Angels M/C has decided to reschedule their event to August 1st – making a double-header with the CMJ event already set for August 2nd. It’s only about an hour & fifteen or so from one place to the other – easy trip for Saturday night, or Sunday morning.
