ROUND 6 – THE WICK 338 (ACE MX CLUB) – MAY 29TH, 2022 – DOUBLE POINTS PLUS VINTAGE – HONDA, HUSQVARNA, KAWASAKI, KTM, SUZUKI, YAMAHA, ROCKY MOUNTAIN RACE REWARDS

Metropolitan Sports Committee is headed due east for Southwick, MA with the ACE MX Club for Round 6 of the MSC Championship MX Series.  This unique venue, THE WICK 338, hosts AMA Pro Nationals come July 9th, so our riders get a change to race in the same track the pros race on.  

Ace Motocross Club will be hosting this event at The Wick 338.  Ace has been a long standing MSC Member for over 50 years.  We thank their entire club for continuing to host events with the MSC.

This weekends race will have OEM contingency from Honda, Husky, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki and Yamaha as well as Rocky Mountain Racer Rewards.  Make sure you give your proper email at rider registration to ensure contingency programs receive your results and Rocky Mountain can issue your $10 Certificate via email.

See below the notice from The Wick 338.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL PARENTS OF MINORS

Effective immediately per order of our insurance company, any minor riding an open practice, taking a motocross class or racing at The Wick 338 must have the Minor Release signed and notarized by both parents! We know this is a huge inconvenience and we wish we didn’t have to enforce it but our hands are tied, we have no choice.

If both parents are present at the track they may sign THE FORM in the presence of a track official who will have to check IDs.

If one parent will not be able to make it to the track they must sign and have the form notarized and then the other parent can bring it with them to the track where they can sign it in front of a track official who will have to check an ID.

There is a box to initial for sole guardians

When filling out the Minor Release enter a date range of March 27 until December 5th to be covered for the year. All parents who bring a release dated that way will be given a card stating that they have a release on file and will not have to bring a new one at every event.
We are sorry to have to do this and we thank you so much for your cooperation.

This DOES NOT eliminate the need for at least one of the parents or guardians to be present at sign up for the minor.

If your child will be attending and riding at an open practice, a motocross school or racing at The Wick 338 both parents must sign and have notarized the Guardian Form appointing a legal (over 18) guardian for the day.

All riders, please bring your cards to sign-up

Please bring your MSC card, your ID and your insurance card with you to sign-up. We hate to be requiring all this but the insurance companies are getting stricter and stricter with their rules, sorry for the hassle and thank you for understanding and helping out.

2022 MSC Motocross Season is upon us!

With winter winding down, it is always hard to believe we will be racing in just a few short weeks! I mean the snow is still on the ground while I write this, but the weather looks bright just a few days from now!   Riders have been traveling all over the place in search of some seat time.  We see it on social media and its great to see. 

If you are new to this or just a procrastinator (we know who you are), here’s some tips on what you need to race and what to expect come race day #1:

  • What do you need to register to race on race day?
  • What do you need to know about the weekend of motocross racing?
    • Tracks open up Friday afternoons for parking. If you are really into the motocross lifestyle, then plan on getting there as early as possible. The tracks will tell you when they open and close the gates.
    • Saturday Practice usually starts around 9AM.  Get there and sign up for practice.  Go out in the practice class you belong in.  Remember, practice is “practice” not racing, take your time, don’t ride over your head, especially the first few times out, AND especially at the beginning of the season when everyone is a little rusty. 
    • Tracks usually do race signup on Saturday. You know you are going to race whether its sunny, raining, or what ever the condition so sign up!  Don’t wait until Sunday if you can avoid it.
    • Sunday Racing:  If you cannot get there until Sunday, just know you need to be there early to signup.  Expect lines at signup on Sunday. 
    • Remember to check the gate pick report to ensure all your info is correct AND you are listed in the class(es) you signed up in. 
    • CHECK YOUR RACE RESULTS!!  Make sure you check the results board frequently.  If you wait beyond the 30 minute posting time, results will remain official, even if they are incorrect! 
    • Trophies and payout will be given out 30 minutes after final results are posted.
    • Anyone under the age of 18 years MUST be accompanied by their parent(s) or guardian(s) for the entire time they are at the race track.  If your kids are coming to the track with another family other than their parents or guardians, they will need a notarized note giving the person responsible for the minor at the track guardianship while they are at the race track.
    • Take your garbage with you. Please keep our pits clean. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR TRASH ON THE GROUND. Bring your trash home with you.
