AOMC/WEXCR opening race day is FINALLY almost here, it’s been a long hard winter and our crew is just as excited as you all are to get back into some WEXCR racing action! We’ve got some great new things to announce as we get this season started…

First off I’m sure you all have seen by now, we have an awesome new facility located at the King Knob Off Road Park near Phillipi, WV this Sunday April 19th, see this link for full event details. This facility has a huge amount of acreage to work with as well as plenty of great parking to fit us all in with ease. We have been up there the past 3 weekends working hard on coming up with an awesome layout for our entire Bike, ATV & UTV racers to enjoy.

I have not had a chance to GPS map the final layouts yet and I don’t think I’ll have enough service at the track to upload the track maps before the race. Although here are the estimates on the track lengths as well as some changes in the course arrow colors for each division this season. Adult racers will continue to follow the same Red & White Fly arrows as they tackle our approx. 11.5 mile loop full of some faster paced trails, along with some tighter more technical areas with a couple nice up & down hills as well as running around a portion of the Enduro-cross track!! Youth racers will now be following the Blue & White Fly arrows as they race their way around an approx. 4 mile loop consisting of some fun & challenging trails to help build their skills. All of our Peewee racers will now be following the Green & White arrows as they buzz around an approx. 1.5 mile loop around the outer perimeter of the parking/pit areas. UTV Racers will also be following the Blue & White Fly arrows but you will have a little longer track than our normal shared Youth/UTV tracks. You all will love what this facility has to offer as you battle your way around an approx. 6 mile course, full of some wider open trails which should give you plenty of room to pull off some passes with ease. UTV Racers don’t forget to check out our awesome contingency program with Can-am which can be seen here.

It looks like there may be a slight possibility of some rain in the forecast for Sunday afternoon so you may want to pack your rain gear and mud boots just in case. I spoke with the landowners today and they are up for some racing rain or shine! This facility does have easy access in and out of the parking area and there will be a dozer on site just in case someone needs a little extra tug.

If you are a brand new racer to our series please make sure you take a few moments to read over our event rules & info as well as the rules for your divisions, this info is located in the middle of menu bar at the top of the page. Even if you are returning racer to our series please review these pages as a refresher and make note as we have made a few changes to the rules & structures of some classes.

Also if you haven’t noticed within our site yet, due to the rising operational costs there will be a slight increase in the racer registration fees for this season. Registration fees will now be as follows: Peewee Division = $20, Youth Division = $25, Adult Amateur Division = $30, Adult Pro-am Class = $40, Adult Pro Class = $50 & UTV’s = $50 per team. Gate fees will remain the same at $15 per person 13+, $10 per person 6-12 & under 5 is free.

Thanks to one of our newest series sponsors, Rocky Mountain ATV & MC, every single racer in every division that registers to race will receive a $10 gift card every time you sign up at each of our 2015 events!! For more info on the program click here

Fly Racing is back offering their awesome contingency program again this year for all of you that use Fly Racing Gear at our events. If you haven’t signed up yet get your forms in ASAP and if you are needing a new set of gear head to one of the dealers listed on the link and get yourself into some new Fly gear! For more info on the program click here.

Pirate MX Powersports is back on board with us again as a sponsor and they have brought some great benefits to the racers of our series. At every one of our 2015 events, we will be giving away a total of 12 free racer registration passes per event which will get the winner free registration at a future 2015 event. Every peewee, youth & amateur racer that signs up for the event gets a chance to win if your name is selected, no matter what place you finish in your race! We will be drawing the winners during the podium presentations for each division and you must be present to obtain your pass. Also each Mini & Youth Division Overall winner will also receive a free race pass! Special thanks goes out to this guys for their help with this program, make sure you check out their massive inventory of high quality used parts at the link above.

I also want to thank all of our staff for working hard preparing everything to get this season rolling. Also make sure you visit our 2015 sponsors link and show some support to these companies for helping give you all an awesome place to come enjoy this sport that we all love!!

See ya on the starting line….
