It’s that time of year again! The Racer X Maine Event is will be September 13th, 14th, 15th.  With the support from so many of you, this event has been promoted to an AMA Featured Event status.  With the huge pro-purse last year and the selected All Star riders running the bibs as “the guys to beat” in their respective classes, this race sets itself up as having 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 that matters; This is “The Maine Event”.

The weekend kicks of with a Friday Practice from 9:00am-3:00pm, and racing will be Saturday and Sunday.   The Friday practice is optional.  There is a standard race day morning practice on Saturday for people who are not able to arrive early enough Friday.  Gates open for the weekend Thursday at 9:00am.

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 will be available here: Classes

We will be running a 3 moto format throughout the weekend.  Saturday we will race all first motos, and continue with second motos until 6:45pm.  Sunday we will pick up where we left off before rolling into third motos.

Payouts

The EJP Pro Purse will be growing until the weekend of the Event.  The total amount will go to the top 10 of both the 250A & 450A classes.  THe purse last year was 15,000 and that is where we hope to see it again.  With that much at stake, we saw some of the best racing we’ve seen here at MX207.  Chris Canning from CT was able to take 1st in the 250 and 450 A classes and will be back again with the red #1 plates on his bikes.

The 30+ A class will have a 100% payback, using the NESC pay chart.
