We certainly didn't see any beavers this past weekend, but we definitely saw some good racing!! It speaks volumes of our riders when the podium was made up of guys from the fourth row!! These guys rode like the wind all day and the results showed their determination.
Coming up on October 16 & 17th we will be at Strange's Ranch. This is a familiar track for us and one that is enjoyed by everyone. When we were there earlier in the year, new things were added and once again I will be putting new things for your enjoyment.
October is Breast Cancer awareness month. We would encourage you to wear pink when you are at the race during the month of October. All the staff will be wearing pink shirts in memory of those who have fought this horrible disease and lost but also in honor of those who fought, who are still fighting to beat this disease.
Airport will be the last race of the 2021 season. This race will be on Halloween weekend. Trick or Treating will be on Saturday night. We encourage everyone to participate by giving out candy to those kids who do trick or treat. More information will be posted prior to the race.
Many of you are asking about drops and points for year end awards. TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR END-OF-YEAR AWARDS, A RIDER MUST HAVE COMPLETED AT LEAST ELEVEN OF THE FOURTEEN EVENTS FOR POINTS. THESE EVENTS MUST BE IN THE SAME CLASS!!! UVT MUST RUN FIVE OF THE EIGHT EVENTS IN ORDER TO QUALIFY FOR YEAR END AWARDS. A RIDER MUST HAVE COMPLETED A LAP TO RECEIVE NUMERICAL POINTS FOR AN EVENT. HOWEVER A DNF, DOES COUNT AS AN EVENT.
PRO'S AND EXPERT'S CLASS POINTS WILL BE BASED ON THE BEST TWELVE FINISHES OUT OF FOURTEEN EVENTS. OVERALL POINTS WILL BE BASED ON BEST TWELVE FINISHES FOR THE FOURTEEN EVENTS. MUST RUN AT LEAST TEN RACES!!! UTV OVERALL WILL BE BASED ON THE BEST SIX FINISHES FOR THE EIGHT EVENTS. A DNF DOES COUNT AS AN EVENT!!
If you send a message asking for confirmation that you have won your class because you want to move up for the next couple races, we will not confirm that for you. We feel comfortable that the results are correct, BUT errors can happen and we do not want to cost you a championship based on our mistake.
Each day that you are able to open your eyes is a gift. When you open your eyes, get out of the bed and start your day, please remember those on the Mideast prayer list. Hendrick Ware as he recovers from surgery, David James, Drew Hoffman, Maddox Moretz, Barbara Lowman who is the mother of Michael Lowman, the Mooney family in the loss of Monica's mother, Nicole Whitaker in the loss of her brother. Also remember our elected leaders, our teachers, our students, the medical professionals that are taking care of those who are in the hospitals.
Remember is is better to be good than to smell good!!
Thank you for your support of Mideast! Hope to see everyone at Strange's Ranch October 16 & 17th! Online signup is open until Thursday Oct 14 at 11:00 p.m,
