Due to the heat, and lack of rain, the Mid-America crew had their work cut out for them prepping the track. We did the final grade and watered on Tuesday, and then continued watering most of the day on Thursday and Friday. The crew returned at 8:30 Saturday morning to start watering. With temps in the 90's the crew took the required breaks during practice to ensure that the track was in great shape for the heats and main events and all of the rider feedback was extremely positive.
ast night also proved that our Focus on the Future series is paying off as
30% of the entries were in youth classes. Don't forget that Mid-America also waives a riders first class entry fee in the 50cc and 65cc classes. (more details below)
With $500 up for grabs in the 65cc class, all of the riders also had their work cut out for them.
Sponsored by Tear It Up Racing, and Cycle Trucking the class paid $500 to the winning bike owner. It was great to see both groups
step up and put up some money in order to put some money ba
ck into the bike owners pockets to keep them coming back to the track. We would like to congratulate Coy "The Crusher" Cummins for winning the 65cc bike class on 7/13. It l
ooks like Coy's father Matt Cummins found a great setup as Coy lived up to his nickname and crushed the competition. Be sure to follow Coy Cummins Racing on Facebook to keep up with his results.
Our next event is this Saturday on July 20th, where Cycle Trucking and Tear it Up Racing are putting up $400 to the winning bike owner in the 50cc Chain Class, and $150 to the winning bike owner in the 50cc Shaft Class. Please continue reading below for more information on this program.
