This is an AMA Sanctioned event and memberships will be available at the track. Membership in South Fork Riders Association, LLC is not required for the Saturday and Sunday AMA event.
We are hoping somebody will volunteer to organize some kids’ activities for Saturday evening that could be held in the starting area (egg toss, sack race, etc.). We can provide special prizes for the winners. Just let us know between now and Saturday if you or group of people can volunteer for this.
We will definitely host a best out of 3 slo-mo dirt bike race in the starting area (helmets still required) Saturday evening. There will be a dunk tank Friday evening.
Wilmoth Vending will be at the track all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. PLEASE make a point to support our food vendor in some way or we may not have one for future races. We support them all weekend eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner so I know the food is good. Honestly breakfast is my favorite…and the chicken sandwich. I also know the sweet tea is addicting…almost worth stopping the racing action so I can get another one. Feel a little guilty only offering the flaggers water when I am admitting to drinking ice tea. Wilmoth will be across from the sign-in trailer so you can’t miss them.
Motorcyclemax.net and Vzf Racing will be at the track all 3 days. Help support those who support you! If you need bike assistance, clothing, gear, tires, tubes, etc., please reach out to them.
We will be selling 150 Virginia State Championship t-shirts. T-shirts are $20 except tall sizes are $25 due to the added cost of the t-shirts.
For those who have sponsored the Grand Championship Series, be sure to bring the current GCS tickets Carl provided. It is free entry for one person per ticket.
Look forward to seeing everyone this weekend.
