2009 Year End Points

Here are the year end points. Please check them over and let me know if there are any questions.

There were quite a few ties.  In that case, we count the # of wins, # of 2nds, # of 3rds, etc until the tie is broken.  In the case of there still being a tie, we then look at the result of the 2nd moto of the last race each rider rode in.

Please make sure your name is spelled right.  These are the results that will be printed in the Knobby News – look now, because there is nothing to be done after it’s printed.

The Banquet is January 31st, 2010 at Anthony’s Pier 9.  Top Ten trophies will be awarded.

Please email me ( or call me (845)657-7259 if there is a problem.







Championship Points require MSC Number

Hello to everyone,

At our recent MSC Meeting, it was discussed that there is an unusual situation of borrowing bikes this year………The big problem is this–Championship Points are awarded when the contestant’s machine displays the rider’s current MSC number.  We have been most understanding.  Riders have listed their MSC numbers on their data card.  But the bike is a different number.

Beginning this week at South Woods, the grace period is over.  Riders must display on their bike their correct MSC Numbers.  You can even use a paper plate taped on your borrowed bike.  Whatever works for you.  But display your MSC number on the borrowed bike so you will be scored using your MSC number and receive your MSC POINTS.   Spread the word! 

Looking forward to Awards Night……….. Sunday – January 31, 2010.  Good Luck!





All MSC TRACKS have agreed that the 125cc 2 stroke Class will be strictly for the 125cc 2 stroke bikes.  No other bikes allowed in the class, (such as 100cc).  Sorry for any inconvenience.  This class was offered for the 125cc 2 stroke bikes.  It is a trophy class, and is not an MSC Point Class.




MSC RIDERS – If you have elected to move yourself up, you must notify the Registrar/PointsKeeper Amy Rutledge – 845-657-7259.

HONDA CONTINGENCY from the rain out race on June 21st has been rescheduled for July 26th at Ace.  Please spread the word to your friends.

South Woods Sportsmen – September 20th.  As previously mentioned, the printer left out the South Woods date of September 20th.  Later schedules that were mailed out included the South Woods date, but early schedules did not include the 20th for South Woods.  Our web schedule has always had the date listed.  So, please make this change if you have not done so……….

Directions–Directions–Please visit the MSC track web site for directions, location and GPS Coordinates.  The contact person listed on your Schedule Card and the MSC INFO on our web site does not live at the track.  The track location & directions are available at each track’s web site.  Thank You, Thank You.

OUR MSC GALA AWARDS NIGHT FOR 2009 WILL BE: SUNDAY, JANUARY 31, 2010 AT ANTHONY’S PIER 9, NEW WINDSOR, NEW YORK.  Make a note on your calendar.  Be there!!

Announcement of MSC Classes for 2008-OUR 50TH YEAR !

After many hours and meetings of the MSC Committee–questions on the classes to run this season have resulted in the decision to keep the classes the same for 2008.  We looked at what the AMA was doing and checked many web sites to see what others were offering???????????????????

The AMA has made changes and those tracks that have AMA membership have to make the same changes. The MSC felt as a Committee— that it was in the best interest of the riders to keep everything the same as the past and revisit it all in the fall. By doing this, the riders that have already purchased bikes will know right where they belong when racing with the MSC.

There were small adjustments that were made for 2008. This year we will allow the 60cc bike to ride in the Junior Mini Class, 60cc-85cc 7-11 yrs.  The only other change is in the Women’s Class. It is no longer an open class. The Bike sizes for the Women’s Class will be 80cc to 250cc.  Also, tracks will charge a $10.00 day fee for non member riders.

Please remember to sign-up early so you will not lose your riding number.  March 1st is approaching.  Our  $25.00 membership is a bargain.                                                            

We are looking forward to seeing our Motocross Family at all the MSC EVENTS.
