The Lewis Automotive Frosty Sludge Season Kickoff Round 1 fired off in Beckley West Virginia on Saturday February 26th and for the Month of February the weather and terrain could not have been better!
In addition to our pro payouts, Super National Cross Country Championship is paying amateur racers at each event! At Round 1 in Beckley WV!
SNCC paid out over $2,137.00 to Amateurs racers!
SNCC also handed several certificates for several of winners at round 1 such as Acerbis Gold, Silver and bronze Cards! Along with tons of other stuff including Lewis Automotive, EVS, Dirt Tricks, UFO, Rocky Mountain, Appalachian Off-road and more!
The race took place at Burning Rock Outdoor Adventure Park which provides a premier facility for these types of events. The staff at the Rock was very involved and without them the event could have not went smoother.
Bill and his crew setup some great tracks from Pee Wee’s to Adult’s, Also on site for the weekend we had Donnie help to make sure things were perfectly in place for a seamless event course.
Considering racing in the month of February in the State of West Virginia we had a great turn out with over 174 racers for the kickoff! Lots of other racers made it out to the event but told us they didn’t get there machines ready in time, but said they would be at round 2 in March at Summersville, WV! Look for a huge turn out coming this March!
The tracks held up really well, other than the hardcore hill climb that the Adult Motorcycles and Quads had to challenge! SNCC Crew had to go in and create alternate route to route racers around the very technical hill; all though lots of good racers were able to dominate the hill which had lots of rocks through out it! The average adult lap time was around 28 minutes, although many of the pro racers were able to tackle it within 22 minutes. Some of the amateur racers were running it at about 30 minutes per lap.
The UTV Course was a slammer and long! With the fastest lap turned by team JAMES ALLEN 20:12! I think out of all the UTV racing out there we laid out the best UTV track yet within the industry, the course was around 12 miles long and provided a little bit of everything but was designed to make sure the UTV guys didn’t tear them expensive machines up! JAMES ALLEN was able to pull off 3rd place overall, with GREG DACIL right in front of him in 2nd place! JUSTIN FLEMING was able to put the power to the trails pulling off the WIN at round 1 in the UTV overall!
The all new Mini Muscle Quad race kicked off the event on Saturday Morning! The Mini Muscle Quad race is a new addition, for brand new beginner kids and the registration is free! Its gives little ones who have no experience an opportunity to come out and begin to learn racing without enter the woods! The Mini Muscle Quad course consist of field racing, but gives little ones a safe but yet great experience to enjoy this fine sport.
