Racer X Maine Event

The Racer X Maine Event is an AMA Pro-Am event on September 15th, 16th, and 17th right here at MX207.  This has been a race weekend for us in the past, but this year we’ve joined forces with Racer X Illustrated, and the AMA to make this an official Pro-Am to take it to the next level.  With the (still increasing) Loud Fuel Pro Purse (currently at 8,000 dollars) and the selected All Star riders to run the bibs as the “guys to beat” in their respective classes, this is shaping up to be the race with the most competition, the most track prep, and the best of times.  This is the biggest stage in the Northeast to prove yourself and see how you match up against the best of the best, this is the race you need to get to, this is the race that matters.  This is “The Maine Event”.

The Racer X Maine Event is a Saturday/ Sunday race (4 moto format) with an open practice on Friday from 9:00-3:00.  Gates open for the weekend on Thursday at 4:00.

This is an AMA event.  .  We’ve structured our classes around AMA ages and bike sizes.  Please be aware of age requirements and machine criteria per AMA rules.  A breakdown of the classes is available here: Classes

Racing will be a 4-moto format, with overall finishes based on all four motos.  Saturday will be motos 1 & 2, Sunday will be motos 3 & 4.  If a class has 44 entries or more, racers must qualify out of heat 1/ heat 2 or the LCQ on Saturday, and overall finishes will be based on the two motos on Sunday.

Additional paperwork required for minors is available on the forms page.

The Racer X staff will be on-site with the cameras rolling all weekend, so make sure to keep the bikes clean and give those guys a wave and maybe you’ll see yourself or your child on the website or maybe even in the Racer X mag!  Also, we will again be setting up the projector for a live screening of the weekend’s highlights at 8:30pm Saturday evening by the staging area.  Make sure to stick around and join the fun.

The 250/450 A class will be competing for some serious cash, thanks to Loud Fuel Co. and other local shops and Businesses around here who’ve pitched in to help put on a show.  By the sounds of it, these will be two classes you WON’T want to miss.  We thank the sponsors, Hutch Motorsports, Motorbikes Plus, Tory Hill Cafe, EJP Solutions, Federal Hill Home Theater, and of course Loud Fuel Co. for having the same enthusiasm as the rest of us race fans and giving back to the sport.  Pay out will be based on over-all finishes from the 4 motos.  The purse is at $8,250.00 and continues to go up as the local support continues to get involved!
