On *Saturday* March 30th we will be kicking off our 1st round of racing for the 2024 race season at “Reno Raceway” located just outside of Marietta, OH! Since we are following our annual tradition of having our opening round on Easter weekend this race will be on Saturday so our crew & racers could spend Sunday with their families. The positive side of a Saturday race is we all don’t have to rush home to get ready to go to work/school on Monday! So with a little extra time after our regular jammed packed Peewee/Youth & Adult division racing program ends we are going to bring you guys some additional racing action by also having the 1st round of our 5 Round Mini Series for the Pit Bike “XC Challenge Race” & Moto Moms & Girls! Click here for more info on these 2 special events!

We will also be having the Stacyc races at approx. 4:00pm near the starting line, then shortly after we will be having a Easter Egg hunt! So make sure your lil ones stick around for all the extra fun!

Reno Raceway is full of racing history as many local XC & MX races have been held on this property over the past several decades (46 years to be exact!). This track has a great mixture of technical and open faster paced trails, mx section as well as a rocky optional hill climb & the famous “Duvall Hill” which is a crowd favorite! We have been very busy doing trail maintenance to come up with a new layout for racers of all skill levels to enjoy for this season opener event! Stay tuned for final track mileage to be released soon…

Thanks to the guys at Big Hometown Motorsports we have a good bit of extra prizes for this event! The winner of the Bike & Quad Pro Classes will receive an extra $500 bonus on top of our regular payout & overall bonuses, remember the more pro class entries we have the higher the payout will be! Also the Amateur Overall winner in the Bike & Quad Divisions will receive a $100 bonus as well. Big Hometown Motorsports will also be giving out 20% off discount certificates good to spend on parts & accessories at their shop for Holeshot Awards in every start line! We can’t thank these guys enough for stepping up and helping provide all these extra prizes for their “Big Hometown” event! They will be onsite with their trailer with some accessories along with some new bikes on display. So make sure you stop by to check them out and thank them for helping provide us with a better place to race!

Also in case you haven’t seen it yet, our online number reservation system is now activated, so if you haven’t already reserved your number get it done ASAP! After the reservation system is closed on Sunday March 24th at midnight, the numbers will be issued on a “first come, first serve basis” on each race day. Just as a reminder this does not “pre-register” you for a event, you still have to come to the yellow registration trailer with your helmet, signup forms and payment but this will greatly help speed up the signup process on our opening race day! Click here for directions on how to reserve yours!

The parking area at this facility has easy off the road access and there is plenty of room to bring in your toy haulers or campers in to make it a full weekend family adventure with us (reminder gates close at 11pm Fri eve so please plan accordingly) As always there is no extra charge for primitive camping and you all are more than welcome to stay Saturday evening also. See the bottom of this page for track address & directions.

Riders will be required to have a transponder which is used to record your laps and laps times when you come through the finish area. Our transponders are the stick on type which go on the back side of your helmet. The transponders are a one time cost of $10.00, sorry we cant rent them out per race. It will be a one time purchase and as long as you don’t damage it, lose it or switch helmets. If you already have one of these stick on style transponders from any other race series, you are good to go as long as it passes the reader test at registration. Also there is no such thing as a “annual renewal/programming fee” with us!
