It’s finally here! The 2016 WEXCR Race Season kicks-off this weekend on April 10th at King Knob Motorsports Park in Philippi, WV, sponsored by AOMC. 1300 acres of mud, rocks and mountainous terrain will welcome every motorcycle, ATV and UTV XC racers from all over the tri-state area!

Here are just a few new highlights that we want to share about our 2016 season:

We have added an extra round for the point’s season which we now will be hosting 11 rounds of racing with 9 rounds counting toward year end banquet qualification. We just finalized this week and we are pleased to announce that we will be co-sanctioning 2 additional rounds of racing with the GNCC series which will be their John Penton event at Millfield, OH & The Mountaineer event at Masontown, WV, more details on our joint venture will be released soon.

Two new tracks for our series will be added this year: Round #2 will be held at “Warrior Raceway” in Vincent, OH and Round #3 will be held at “The Wilderness” Track in Salem, WV. The Wilderness track was home to several GNCC races as well some local races over 10+ years ago, so we are excited to bring some racing back to this venue!

Adult Bikes will welcome two new classes, the Senior 40+ A/B and the Senior 40+ C while Adult Quads will have two new classes, as well, the A 16-21 and A 22+ Classes. Additionally, there will now be a Single Seat Class for Polaris Aces in the UTV Races. Also we have decided to go back to having just one pro class in the adult bike & quad divisions. Combining back to just 1 Pro class will bring more competition to 1 class which can increase the rewards to the Pro racers when we have good class turnouts.

We have also switched our event points scale to a new “25 points” system, which you can click here to view on our website! This was voted on by racers and the majority chose this new system.

AOMC is back as the Title Sponsor in 2016 as their 4th consecutive year and they have an awesome new contingency program to help out WEXCR Racers.
