XR Championship Race

The halftime XR Championship races are part of the rich tradition of the Grass Race, with two classes for these ultimate old school mini racers:  Twin Shock and Single Shock.
The race moved to the Grass Track a few years ago for better viewing, but the consensus is it’s too fast and rough for the old bikes.  So they’ll be moving back to the 50 track this year.

Rules & Info:
Bike must be an XR or CRF 75 or 80 with correct frame and motor; engine modifications are allowed.
Must have minibike (no supermini) wheels.  Due to limited selection of 16″ front tires, 17″ tires are allowed.
Racers must be at least 18 years old.
XR practice will be the last practice in the morning; 1 moto for each class (and qualifiers if needed) will be at intermission.

More Information and Links

Gate fee includes camping.  No RV hookups available.  Pets must be on a leash.  Must be 16 to use a pit vehicle.
