We are going to Millville and RedBud this year.

The new AMA race day schedule leaves a 2-1/2 hour break during race day between timed qualifying and the first moto. Whats up with that?

Since they don't allow vending at these events (other than ugly t-shirts) there is nothing to do. Of course they still call it vendor row? Not sure why?

Going to be a long, hot, boring couple of hours!

For non-WMA events (High Point, Red Bud, Budds Creek, Unadilla, and Spring Creek) remove the WMA events.

Mix cocktails until time doesn't matter.

Flirt with women.

Look for a better viewing location.

You are lucky to be going to two events this year.

have fun, no matter what it takes.


Without the following support, my race program would not be worthy:

Bring a book and an umbrella to keep the sun off your back.

They have some cool looking shirts for sale under the WWH Tent in the Vending area.

I think you are confusing allowing vending with selling event shirts.

Vending is allowed if you want to pay the fee's (therin lies the problem) People think they should be allowed to show up and vend and not pay anyone to do it.

That is easy for Red Bud...Roam around Lot B and watch the out of control idiot's that show up there every year. People watching (and boobs) and red bud are priceless!!

At High Point there is usually plenty of free entertainment. Slip and slide on a mud hill, girls mud wrestling, etc.


You lose 100% of the chances that you never take!

The slip-n-Slide at Millville in '06 during the Lites class was the best. Boob watching during the down time kicks serious ass. I didn't see the Canada girls last year I hope they make a return appearance. Always nice to see the sights they offer, eh.

... and you're supposed to buy one of those over priced pit passes and go stare at bikes and try to stand in line for an autograph. If you do go in the pits, go talk to a few privateers away from the semi's. They'll appreciate you talking with them and you'll have someone to cheer for during the moto's. Unless some big titted 20-something walks by.... then you'll forget about everything, even your kid that wants another Turkey leg.
