It’s that time of year again! The Maine Event will be August 27-28-29.  This will again be an AMA FEATURED EVENT.  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 for each class.  A breakdown of the classes will be available here:
