Here are the current points from our last race at Claverack MX on 5/19/13. As you know this was a double points weekend. Our next race will be June 2nd at Echo Valley Farm. It will also be a double points weekend!
The way the points are being done this year will remain the same. For those of you who do not understand them, all you need to do is look at the chart for Championship Points, know how many were in your class, and find out your points by looking in the appropriate column on the chart. You do not earn points if you did not complete both motos. You do not earn points if you don’t run your MSC number and the correct background colors. (see rulebook for colors)
As for Advancement Points (for Novice and Amateur riders only), I will make a seperate post with the up to date points soon.
Southwoods Sportsmen is working very hard on a permanent location for their race track. Although they had no choice but to cancel this event, Echo Valley Farms graciously accepted the date and is working closely with Southwood’s to give them a date later on in the season. We certainly apologize for any inconvenience this caused our MX Family.
With that being said, Echo Valley Farms will be hosting this DOUBLE POINTS EVENT with HONDA, HUSQVARNA, DP BRAKES, AND FLY CONTINGENCY. More race info to follow.

This was the first week that I began to check background colors – it was very encouraging! There were only a few people who didn’t have the right colors on and did not receive their points. Thank You.
This week when you sign up at Claverack, please take the time to fill out a short survey for us. We want to know what people truly think about the new Points changes.

All points should be correct now. This was our first weekend of Double Points. This year each track will host a race awarding Double Points. Check the schedule to see when the next one is!
The upcoming race this weekend at Echo Valley will begin the enforcement of the background colors. In order to receive your Championship points, you must have the correct color and number displayed on your bikes. Pee Wee & Experts are White. Yellow is for 65, 85 & Amateurs. Black should be on Novice bikes only.
To remind everyone again: You are currently receiving Championship Points no matter what your background color is. On may 12th at the Echo Valley race I will begin checking colors and if you do not have the right number AND color diplayed – you will no longer receive your points.
Another reminder: When you move up, you need to let me know and ask if your current number is available in the next class! Your number does not just automatically follow you. I have only one list for Youth (50-85cc), Novice, Amateur, Expert, Women & Quads.
The race at Diamondback this week will have DOUBLE POINTS. See you all on Sunday.
Here are the Championship points from the race at Echo Valley on 4/21/13. Things are coming together good now. All membership cards have gone out in the mail from the last 2 races. Expert points have been fixed – sorry!
Just a Reminder: I will begin to check background colors on May 12th at Echo Valley. Anyone who doesn’t have the correct backgrounds by then will not receive their Championship points.
I am happy to say the Championship Points are finally done! Thanks for being patient. It took me awhile to get things together. Lots of new names and of course the new points chart slowed me down, but as we have more races, I’ll have less to type in each week.
For anyone that signed up for membership at the track, your card will be available at Echo Valley this weekend. Anything not picked up will go out in the mail on Monday.
Please Note: To get championship points, you must do the following things:
- Always have your MSC number displayed on your bike ( preferably on all 3 sides – how else can we score you??)
- Have the right COLOR backgrounds (I will start enforcing this on May 12th – this gives you a month to get it done right)
- Finish BOTH motos – a DNF in any moto eliminates you from getting Championship points (no matter where the computer scores you on the list) With the exception of the Experts – they are given points for each moto seperately.
