Mchenry county fairgrounds SX race series

For all who havent heard there is a 5 race SX series at the mchenry county fairgrounds - it starts next friday may 17th! this is great 3 mins from my crib i could walk there!

http://www.thewoodstockindependent.c...ocross-series/

Residents of Woodstock need not be alarmed. The revving of engines and the flying dirt coming from the McHenry County Fairgrounds this summer is for their enjoyment. Woodstock KTM & Triumph, 2050 S. Eastwood Drive, is sponsoring Friday Night Under the Lights, the Woodstock Stadium Motocross series, Fridays May 17, June 21, July 26, Aug. 2, Aug. 23 and Sept. 27.

The event is being coordinated by Samuel Shafer, business manager, and Kevin Popaeko, sales manager. Both men grew up around racing.

“We knew from the beginning that taking on these two lines was a pretty big endeavor,” said Shafer, who had worked for Woodstock Harley-Davidson for six years and recently took over Woodstock KTM and Triumph. “We wanted to be more than just a retail location for bikes. We wanted to be connected with the community, and we felt the best way to do that was to not only sponsor races but run our own race series.”

Owner Doug Jackson, who also is part owner of Woodstock Harley-Davidson, said he is excited to bring an event like this to Woodstock.

“Most people love racing – the energy and the excitement,” Jackson said. “Woodstock’s a pretty small community, and we often don’t get to do something really exciting. I think bringing an event like this [here] will get people out and will give them something fun to do.”

Shafer said they are expecting 500 to 1,000 attendees for each event including racers and spectators. He said he is confident the event will be a success.

“We partnered with a lot of key players in McHenry County who are big in the motocross scene so that allowed us to get the name out, start branding the race within the racing community,” Shafer said. “There are going to be plenty of racers. We are trying to target the people who want to come for the sheer entertainment aspect of it.”

This is the first event the two have planned although both are active in the racing community.

“A lot of it we are learning as we go but, as I said before, we are all racers here so as far as the logistics of how it should go, we have all of that down,” Shafer said

150 semi-loads of dirt will be needed to build the race track that will only need to be rebuilt once for the Aug. 2 race.

According to Shafer, the Public House will be providing food and beverages.

Shafer said they are hopeful the event can continue in the future.

“We’re obviously hoping to continue this in future years,” Shafer said, “One of the main things we wanted to accomplish was to give back to the sport. … We’re fortunate enough on the KTM/Triumph side that we don’t need to survive on sales because of the Harley side. We’re able to allocate a lot to running events like this giving back to the sport, helping out racers.”

Gates will open at 3 p.m., a riders’ meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. with practices following and the first actual races will occur between 5:30 and 6 p.m. Forty races will be held at night with the races ending by 10 p.m. Admission is $10. For information, call Shafer at 815-310-3616 or email him at [email protected].

Tony,

Did they move the fairgrounds back away from 14 a couple blocks? They used to run some stuff there back in the early 90's. Is the set up still the same? I haven't paid attention any time I've come through there in the last 15 yrs or so.

I was planning on going tonight with my son. Article says the next race isn't until 7/26. Anyone know what's up?

Thanks.
