Round #3 Promo copy

Round# 3 @ Pioneer Motorcycle Club located in Waterford, OH will now be a 2 day event! All quad classes will race on Saturday the 17th & all bike classes will race on Sunday the 18th. While our racer turnouts are continuing to grow and the parking @ this facility being one of the smallest in our series we have decided this was the best option to ensure that everything runs smoothly for everyone involved. See below for the new time format for this round only.

As far as the track goes you all are going to love this one as it has several awesome spectator spots just a short walk from the pits. Not to mention a sweet track layout with a great combo of tight technical and fast paced trails, along with a few hill climbs & some rocky creek sections to finish it all up!!! Look for the new 2014 layout to have some awesome new sections that will be designated as Bike only or Quad only trails!! Stay tuned for more info as the layout progresses…

This facility does have easy off the road access with nice level parking although as mentioned above this is one of the smallest parking areas in our series. Space is a little limited for extra large campers/trailers, so load up a smaller trailer or throw your bike or quad in the pickup truck and get ready for another great adventurous round with WEXCR!!!

This event was planned to be the title sponsored race for GT Thunder, who has been a supporter of our race series since day one. Unfortunately the shop owner Lazarus & his wife Mary Ann Sommers passed away in a unfortunate airplane accident while heading to the Big Buck GNCC on April 11th 2014. This couple has touched many hearts & souls throughout the racing community with their kind spirits. With Laz’s amazing knowledge & skills he had designed and manufactured many aftermarket performance products that have made a huge impact to ATV racing over the years. Not to mention his willingness to help out racers, he has shared his knowledge & helped support many amateur racers as they have progressed to the top ranks in many local & national racing events. They may be gone but they definitely will never be forgotten as we are holding this event in memory & honor of them. Thoughts and prayers go out to Brandon & Eryca and the entire Sommers family.

It will be a one time purchase and as long as you don’t damage it, lose it or switch helmets.

Club History

1954 – A Motorcycle Club was formed by a group of guys that loved to ride. Those founding members were; Albert Bartell, Bob Hughes, Jack Wolfe, Jerry Dye, Sam Sadler and of course their Wives. The club’s original name was the Knights of the Golden Circle.
1956 – The club joined the American Motorcyclist Association and changed their name to Pioneer Motorcycle Club representing the “Pioneer City” of Marietta, Ohio. In 1959 the club was incorporated and became a “Not for Profit” Corporation. During the early years meetings were held at the various members homes at multiple locations through the Mid Ohio Valley.
1957 – Saw the Club’s 1st Hillclimb and over the next several years, hosted other types of events; Rocket Runs, Lime Runs and Poker Runs for the road, Hillclimbs, Scrambles, Enduros, Harescrambles for the Off-road, and Motorcycle Rodeos for both road and off-road.
1974 – Pioneer Motorcycle Club, Inc. made their final move to the current location in Waterford, Ohio purchasing 30 acres, clearing land, building a hill and laying out trails soon became priority. The surrounding neighbors have worked alongside the club, allowing them to use the land for various events.
1984 – Hosted our 1st AMA Amateur National Championship Hillclimb in Jenny Wiley State Park in Kentucky

Currently the Club has approximately 40 active members, which take care of all the up-keep, maintenance, improvements and event duties by donating their time, equipment and energy for the Love of the sport! Two founding members are still active in the club today Sam Sadler and wife Virginia and Ruth Hughes wife of the late Bob Hughes. Les and Kelly Wolfe, Son and daughter of the late Jack Wolfe (founding member) both currently hold offices and are active in the daily operation of the club and events.

Pioneer Motorcycle Club was formed because the founding members enjoyed Motorcycling! So we promote every event on that simple principle – Promote a fun, safe, family atmosphere and the event will be a competitive, fair and an enjoyable experience for All Riders!
