What is the VetFest?
It’s a fun weekend of motocross with a retro, no pressure vibe. It includes Friday practice and Saturday race classes for adult riders only, starting at 18 Plus and going up to 65 Plus (or 70 Plus if needed!). There are “A”, “B” and Novice divisions through age 45. We see lots of “used-to-race” and “once-a-year” racers at this event. Here’s a link to the 2020 VETFEST RESULTS, if you’d like to check out the classes. And don’t miss the Friday night steak dinner at the pavilion! Get your tickets Friday morning at the concession stand.
