Diamondback MX will be hosting Round 16 of the MSC Championship Series.
XtremeScore Transponder system will be used. Transponders are $5.00 per bike used. You can purchase as many as you need. Take care of them and use them as long as they last. Transponders go behind the front number plate on the plastic surface in a horizontal position. All riders must have a transponder to be properly scored.
Also be aware, those who will be attending Open Practice will be charged the $12 entry fee for Sunday’s race. If you are leaving and not returning on Sunday, you will be refunded if you bring your wristband back to the front gate. THE WRISTBAND MUST STILL BE ON YOUR WRIST. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GET A REFUND FOR SUNDAY’S ENTRY BY RETURNING YOUR WRISTBAND BY NO LATER THAN 5PM ON SATURDAY.
SATURDAY EVENING RIDER SIGNUP WILL TAKE PLACE FROM 2PM TO 5PM.

Here is the ADVANCEMENT POINT CHART so those of you who are getting close to moving up can keep an eye on where you are standing. As soon as a rider reaches 125 in Novice or 250 in Amateur advancement points, you will no longer be allowed to run those classes. You will be moved up and your Championship points will remain where they are. Those of you getting close should check with me to see if you number will be available in the next higher class. If it is not, you will need to change your number when you advance.
Please remember that Championship Points and Advancement points are different. A lot of people look at the Championship points and think that riders are over their limit for advancing.
Proper color backgrounds need to be run in order for your points to count! Pee Wee’s should have WHITE. any Youth class above 50cc, needs to use YELLOW plates for the points to count. We know that other districts may use white, but we do not. A simple fix is putting yellow duck tape around the edges when you race with us and I will count it.
Novice riders should be running BLACK plates. Any other color will not count. Colors are checked every race and if I miss anyone, I check on Vintage 54′s pictures.
All of this information can be found in the rule book located on the top of the website. If you are a newer rider – please read the rules and know what is expected of you.
For those wondering about their Advancement Points: Advancement Points 2014
Here are the points from Twister Valley 6/22/14. The next race is at Echo Valley 6/29.
To all our newer members – please make sure you have the correct background colors and racing number on your bikes so that you receive championship points. Everyone gets points the day they joined but after that you need the right stuff!
DUE TO A PROTEST IN THE 50CC CLASS AT DBMX, ALL HOLESHOT DEVICES ARE ILLEGAL IN ALL 50CC CLASSES FOR 2014. THE ENFORCEMENT WILL BEGIN AT TWISTER VALLEY’S JUNE 22ND RACE. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE DEVICE IS NOT INSTALLED ON YOUR CHILD’S BIKE RUNNING IN ANY 50CC CLASSES FOR POSSIBILITY OF BEING DISQUALIFIED FOR THE DAY.

This was a double point race weekend. This weekend’s race is at Twister Valley. I will not be there this weekend, but Tracey Floor will be filling in for me. Day Passes and Memberships will be available in the morning at the sign up shed.
Here are the points from Twister Valley 6/1. Our next race is at Orange County on 6/8.
Just a few reminders:
When you are a Novice or Amateur rider who is moving yourself up you need to tell me so I am aware of it (and can make you a new card) and also so you can see if your number will still be good in the next class!
If your bike breaks down and you run a borrowed bike – you need to make sure you get your own MSC number on the borrowed bike. I know things happen, but you will not get your points if you don’t have your number on the borrowed bike. It’s not good enough to “talk to the track owner” or just tell whoever is in the booth. The color can be waived for the day, but you must always use your own number.
If you are waiting for new backgrounds to come, it is acceptable to use colored duck tape on your bike so you are running the right colors! If you are at least attempting to follow the rules, it is appreciated. Those of you who need to add numbers on your plates when riding with the MSC, should use tape that is visible to the scorers. Light blue painters tape and silver duct tape is very hard to see.
Here are the Advancement Points Lists in case anyone wants to check to see where they stand.
