ATVs on the Drag Strip

We are proud to announce the first ALTERNATE CYCLE ATV DRAG RACING SERIES. Fun, prizes, and especially BRAGGING RIGHTS are yours for the taking - all you need is the fastest quad! We will be bringing our souped-up quads to the Ashcroft Dragstrip for a 6 events this summer, and we would love to see you at the races.

Very little special equipment is necessary - the races are run on the 1/8th mile asphalt strip and your regular trail-riding quad will be just fine. A set of tie-downs to compress your front suspension is the single most important modification you should make to your quad.

What you need:
- Snell 2000 or newer certified helmet
- Leather jacket
- Leather gloves
- Boots that cover your ankles
- Tether kill switch

The cost will be $25 for a day of racing. You will get at least 5 runs, with time slips, and we will be racing for fastest quad as well as bracket racing - that means you don't have to be the fastest to win, just the best/most consistent. We really had a great time racing last year and we hope to see a lot more ATVs on the strip this year. And if you have any loud-mouthed riding buddies who claim to have the fastest quad, you should definitely invite them to put their money where their mouths are!

Please call or e-mail Paul or John at Alternate Cycle if you have any questions.
