  • DESERT PARK RACEWAY HOSTS KPX

    NNKC

    STEAD (JUNE 25) – Desert Park Raceway was visited this weekend by the KPX series. And hosting the third round of this year’s series was the Northern Nevada Kart Club. Unlike last year’s visit only the groups in the series raced but that brought around 106 drivers to the track. Another difference between last and this year is that it didn’t rain but was hot. Anytime a race like this visits a club’s home track the locals want to defend their turf and this time two club members won their main events. And one of them is among the youngest

  • BATTLE BORN MX: SPRING FINALE

    Battle Born MX

    A bit under the weather on Monday so this was slightly delayed. FERNLEY (June 11) – The final round of the Battle Born MX spring series was highlighted with rain and wind.

    Battle Born Moto Fest

    Mustang – The Battle Born Moto Fest returned to the Wild West Motorsports Park this weekend. Unlike last year it was a two-day affair with two very different events.

On Sunday there was the Wild West Hard Enduro, a race that went for 90 minutes and the course was anything but easy. After starting on the main straight the riders went up the hill, down the ski jump and headed for the rocks, but unlike Ultra 4, they

    RENO (June 7) – This week’s racing preview begins with a special event to help a local racer.

Earlier this year Ty Tremaine, winner of this year’s VCGP, earned a spot on the American team that will compete in the ISDE (International Six Day Enduro) held in France. However earning that spot also meant he had to raise the funds so he can afford the trip. One of this site’s sponsors PJandCo, located at 1590 S. Wells Avenue, is

    OTHG Nationals

    FERNLEY (May 28) – A Memorial Day weekend tradition is the annual Over The Hill Gang National race at the Sandbox, or the Fernley-Wadsworth Lions Club Motocross Track.

And once again the hosts was the local OTHG chapter. Scoring is kind of like golf as a rider’s finish in a moto gives them the number, which is added up after all four have been run. There are two motos each day. Looking over the final
