The Racer X Maine Event will be September 14th, 15th, 16th.  This AMA Pro-Am event is one of the biggest MX events in the Northeast.  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 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 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 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.

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.  We will post updates as the purse continues to grow with the support of local business wanting to be involved.  Last year with the help of Loud Fuel and so many others, we were right around $13,000 and are excited to see what this year will be.  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 450A, and Ramyller Alves who drove all the way up from Miami was took the overall in the 250A.  Both riders received a briefcase loaded with hundred dollar bills.

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

Golf carts and pitbikes will be allowed.  You must have a permit (available at the office for $10) and be a licensed drive.
