RACING IS BETTER WITH FRIENDS
Each week, you’ll get one timed run on a rotating group of trails. You will collect points based on finish order in your division, plus bonus points for theme attire and race times ending in the number of the week. The top five point earners in each class will be combined with your teammates to determine your team’s standing. Teams will be ranked highest to lowest by points in the fight for the ultimate prize at the end of the series: some truly sweet trophies and a year’s supply of bragging rights.
If you or a member of your team has to miss a week, don’t panic. Each team will have only the scores from their five best weeks count toward the championship. Each team’s lowest-scoring week will be dropped.
More ways to earn points. More race nights. More rider categories. Team standings, quicker results, and more giveaways making the series fun for even more riders. Stick around and join us for entertainment and fun at the Exit 19 Bar following the race each week. Each rider, win or lose, will have a chance to win prizes in free weekly raffles supported by different sponsors throughout the series.
