Double up Weekend – Two days up on “the hill”
Saturday – 9/17 will be the second of only two open practice days at Hogback Hill in 2016. The normal skill group practice rotation will run 10am-2:30pm. This will not only be a great way to dial in the track for Sunday’s race – we are hoping the up the entertainment value with the Strassburger – Malyj 125 Pro Challenge!
Back and BIGGER than before!
In memory of Kelly Strassburger and Pete Malyj, we will once again be running a money race for 125cc two-strokes. A separate “125’s only” practice session will run toward the end of the open practice program. Then once the practice day has concluded and any necessary watering has been done, we will run one 20-minute moto – featuring a $200 Holeshot Award and a $1500 purse!
1st -$500 / 2nd – $400 / 3rd – $300 / 4th – $200 / 5TH – $100
Sunday – 9/18 will be another great WNYRacing motocross event – this time featuring the DP Memorial Pig Roast!
It’s been a few years since we’ve seen Dave Phillips Sr up at the races …but when DP was there, he was there in a BIG way. The impact of the wisdom, leadership and generosity that DP afforded both the Palmyra Racing Association AND the old Western New York Sports Committee is truly immeasurable.
Sadly, DP passed away this February.
One of the many things DP used to help with was building the mx community through celebration. He loved to cook and provided A LOT of free food for patrons of the PRA. In true DP fashion, this year we will honor his memory with a FREE pig roast during our September 18th event. Everyone that comes through the gate will receive a meal ticket. Bring that ticket up to the food tent and the club will provide you with meat, potatoes and drink.*
* We can only estimate how many will be attending the event, so the food will be first come, first served until it is gone
