Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

6 classes is very ambitious out of the gate. They don't discriminate against money in GNCC, if you pay you can play.
ATV's, SXS's, and a hundred classes. Go DC! Other Promoter's don't even copy him, to their own detriment. They will probably add Exteme Fitness races and Horse's on Wed. and Thurs. Bring it.

Pretty cool and I bet they'll get a ton of entries.

Will be interesting to see how they police the powertrains. Claiming rule?

That a good idea especially on the fridays. Won’t tear up the track nearly as bad

No, they are electric....and they don't stand a chance against tricked out razors for pit transportation because you can only fit one, maybe two preteens with no adult supervision.

A few weeks ago there was a partnership announced with the E-bike company and GNCC to display them and use them around the track and pits to get the crew around. It progressed rapidly, I guess the guys saw how cool it was. Maybe Alta should get them some bikes to use for the crew at the AMA nationals?

I bought a Kona Process 134.

No e-motor, no worries!

The able-bodied should pedal and also walk when playing golf. Rant over, for now...
