Just a week and a few days until the 2016 MTA World Championships invade Glen Helen Raceway! Husqvarna’s Andy Jefferson has confirmed that AMA Pros Zach Osborne and Austin Howell will be competing in the Open Pro Two-Stroke race, and Tim Wiegand and Mike Brown will be taking the gate in the 125 Pro event! MTA has added additional perks with HoleShot Awards from Booster Motorsports (iBoosters and iKat Spark Plug Amplifiers) and the appearance of “Spark Plug”, the official event mascot! Donny Emler is providing FMF Two-Stroke t-shirts for the first 150 entries! LA Sleeve has put up $8000 for the Open Pro Purse, and $2000 for the 125 Pro Purse! MTA has also created the biggest prize of all. . . the trick MTA/ProCircuit YZ that will go to one lucky ticket holder!
This will be a full, action-packed day featuring both awesome two-stroke motocross racing and the impressive Monster Energy Freestyle Show! Classes are available for all ages and all skill levels, as long as you are on a Two-stroke! There will be a special two-stroke motorcycle practice session on Friday, March 25 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; this practice session will be on the National Track (modified to cater to two-stroke engines!) that will be used for Saturday’s Championships. Saturday’s racing will be highlighted by the Open Pro Race, and the 125 Pro Race. . . both with LA Sleeve Purses!
Online entries are in the “register” link of the Glen Helen website (www.glenhelen.com). Gates open at 6:00 a.m., with practice at 8:00 a.m. and racing at 9:00 a.m. Spectator entry is only $10; amateur entries are $40, with pro entries at $85.00. Each racer receives a ticket with his/her entry. One ticket will be drawn, with the lucky holder the recipient of the trick MTA/ProCircuit YZ!
