We’ve had a number of incredible experiences since starting the Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series in 2012. Being racers at heart, there is no place we’d rather be each weekend than behind a starting gate, and that sentiment is shared hundreds in Southern California each time we head to the best tracks in the lower portion of the state. Through our two years as race promoters, there have been record numbers on entrants at nearly every stop and the on-track action is some of the best we have ever seen. Now in our third year, we expect to see even more participation at the fastest-growing amateur motocross racing series and cannot wait to be back at the track.
The second round of the 2014 Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series Winter Cup will take place this Sunday, January 12th, at Glen Helen Raceway. Located in San Bernardino, the track is an iconic part of American motocross racing and will play host to the opening round of this year’s National championship. With towering hills, rugged soil sections, and the trademark Talladega first turn, there are few tracks more exciting to ride than Glen Helen.
Every stop of the 2014 Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series Winter Cup will implement the two-track system. The track a racer competes on will depend on their skill level; all Beginner classes – from PeeWees to full-size bikes and Vets – will race on the “Amateur tracks.” Those racing age-bracketed and all classes from Novice up will race on the “Expert track.” The benefits to a “two track” system are numerous, as it will give racers the chance to compete on a track that is safer, well maintained, and equal to their skill level. It will also allow for two motos to be run simultaneously; while one class races on the Expert (National) track, another can have their own moto on the Amateur (REM) track. Running multiple races will result in shorter race days for all and the goal for each and every stop is to have the final laps finished by 2:30PM.
Will you be on the line when we head to Glen Helen for round number two? We sure hope so. Membership enrollment and entry are available online, and signing up online also allows for credit card payment via PayPal. On-site entry is available as well, with cash as the only acceptable form of payment.
