  • SEASONS GREETINGS FROM NVRACINGNEWS

    Santa Crawl - decorated VW

      Season’s greetings from all of us to our readers. This week is a bit of a departure from the norm with this site. After going hard at it for almost 18 months thought I’d step back for this week. Over the past months my partner and I have worked at getting the site up, running and keeping it up to date. Not an easy task I can assure you but the feedback has been positive and that alone is gratifying. This year I’ve seen a series and a club reborn due to the efforts of racers and concerned individuals.

  • Austin Serpa – MRANN 2015 CHAMPION

    MRANN - Austin Serpa, 2015 Overall Champion.

    Austin Serpa had a championship year this season as he raced his KTM in area desert races. Winning races is the goal of any racer and while most never accomplish this they have fun trying. However some do win titles and earning an overall championship in their rookie year is an even greater accomplishment. And that’s exactly what one 16-year-old high school racer did this past season. Like many motorcycle racers, he got an early start in the two-wheeled world. “I remember when I first started riding I was about 2-years-old with some training wheels on a little PW50,” Austin
