39TH ANNUAL DUBYA WORLD VET MX CHAMPIONSHIP PRE-ENTRIES OPEN ON JUNE 1
This will be the 39th year of the Dubya World Vet MotocrossChampionships. Additionally, the “World Vet Cup of Nations team race” will also be held race during the event. There are Vet classes for everyone, ranging from Over-25 years old to Over-80 years old (often in 5-year increments for Novice, Intermediate and Expert skill levels). A three-moto format will be run for all amateur classes (Pros will race two long motos).
You haven’t lived until you’ve been tapped out in fifth gear on your way to the massively steep Talladega first turn. It is banked at 45 degrees and riders can go through it seven-wide.
There will be special Friday, November 3, practice on the whole track for World Vet. It is limited to riders who are entered in the World Vet. There is also an open practice on Thursday, November 2, open to riders of all ages. It will not be run on the whole track as certain sections are saved for eligible riders for Friday’s practice and Saturday and Sunday’s races.
EARLY BIRD SPECIALS
2023 WORLD VET CUP OF NATIONS TEAM RACE
The World Vet Cup of Nations allows each country to field three three-man teams with riders from three different age groups. Here are the powerful Canadian teams from the 2022 event.
(1) To be deemed a valid representative of a country, the rider must possess and present an official birth certificate or passport from the country being represented.
(2) All three team riders should be from the country they are representing. However, if only 2 riders from that country are available, a third rider can be drafted from another country to fill out the third spot on a team, but there will be a 5-place penalty assessed to the team’s overall finish points for each moto.
(4) National flag race bibs will be provided to each rider of the country being represented. Failure to wear your bib will result in a 5-place penalty for your team.
With 1000 riders from 25 different countries, the World Vet is like a “Woodstock of Motocross”—with lots of racers who are old enough to have been at Woodstock.
