Saturday afternoon it’s back east about 43 miles to Owego, NY at Champion Speedway BMX. The last of the three double points races. Registration will begin 2:30pm and close at 3:30pm. Racing at both Horseheads and Champion Speedway? Be sure to pre-register for Champion Speedway while at Horseheads to save yourself some time! [Track Website]
Wait…two races in the same day? You guys are nuts! Nope, Ed Garrity and the staff at both tracks ensure that racing goes fairly quickly. Us upstate NY racers are used to this so watch out!
Finishing up the weekend is a 90 mile, scenic drive up Rt. 96 through the beautiful Finger Lakes region (truly a site to behold) to Upstate BMX in Newark, NY. With the final qualifier comes a rare triple ABA district point race, one of very few in the entire country. [Track Website]
For those traveling from out of state and chasing all those points, we have made up a quick Google Map to get your bearings, it is posted below. Directions to and from each track can be found at the link below. You can find directions to Grippen Park BMX and other lodging info here. Grippen Park BMX suggests you stay locally at the Econolodge/Roadway Inn right up the block from our track on Friday night, and then head west early Saturday morning. Saturday night after the race at Champion Speedway, head up north to Newark, NY. Be sure to contact the guys at Upstate BMX for hotel recommendations in that area.
Good luck to all racers, and we will see you this weekend!
