Event: East Coast Pitbike Nationals

in California Events
Added by Bryan Bosch , --

Taking place Oct 18, 2008 through Oct 19, 2008 (Ranged Event)

Bryan Bosch

Mountaineer Raceway West Virginia

2UP Minis is having a Vintage Mini race during the 2008 East Coast Pitbike Nationals on October 18, 2008 at Mountaineer Raceway, WV. The Vintage race is being held to showcase the roots of pitbikes and provide owners of these bikes an opportunity to actually race them. Since this is more of a fun race and we are hoping to attract a lot of vintage minibikes, the bikes allowed to enter the race is going to be wide open (basically bring what you have like an actual 1970's minibike race). Models to include, but not limited to:

Honda Z50 (1968 thru 1999 since essentially the same engine and no mono shock)

Honda QA50
Honda MR50
Honda CT70
Honda SL/XL70
Honda XR75
Honda ST90
Kawasaki MT1
Kawasaki KV75
Yamaha JT1/2
Yamaha GT80
Suzuki Trail Hopper
Indian Minis
Harley Minis
Sears/Other US Minis

Additionally, this race is being sponsored by TBparts.com and they will be covering the entry fees so besides the track gate fee ($10), the race itself is free to enter!!!

If the turnout is good and the riders want more vintage races, please let 2upminis know as there is a good possibility a vintage class could be added to the 2009 2UP Minis Pitbike series (9 races - held spring thru summer).

So, dust off your vintage garage queen and put it to good use! While there, you can also check out the top pitbike racers in the country bang bars for 7k in purse money!!
