Family & Season Packages

We love our family. That includes the extended family that rides with us at our series. And we want EVERY member of the family to get out there and ride so we’ve introduced an awesome way for riders to save money:

Due to riders neglecting to bring their race plates to the event – and the timing difficulties that ensue – there will be a $5 fee for riders participating without their race plate. Temporary plates will be issued in this circumstance.
Lap times will not be counted without a clearly visible plate.
