After a few weeks of much needed recovery, we are ready to continue on with the 2013 Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series. The second championship of the year, the Spring Cup, will usher in a list of changes, including the all-new “two track” format created to offer safer racing and more productive days. Round one of the five-stop series takes place at Cahuilla Creek in Anza, California, a stop that is familiar to Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series competitors.
So, what is the two track format, you ask? Every facility the Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series visits has an assortment of tracks on their property, each more difficult than the other. To benefit racers all of skill levels, we will now use more than just the main layout. The track a racer will compete 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. For one, 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 two motos to be run simultaneously; while one class races on the Expert track, another can have their own moto on the Amateur 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.
Makes sense, huh? Now that our new format has been explained, we expect a massive turnout for the first round of the Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series Spring Cup this weekend at Cahuilla Creek. We take over the Anza, CA, compound for the entire weekend, as open practice takes place on Saturday from 9AM to 3PM and Sunday begins with gates opening at 6:30AM. Sunday morning practice kicks off at 8PM and the first round of motos start soon after the final practice concludes.
Want to race? You have two entry methods that will get you in, but we are rather partial to one. Traditional raceday sign-up is available, with cash and now credit card as payment, but you can enter early through our online registration area and use the PayPal option. Payment via PayPal and increased odds at a better first moto gate selection make signing up on the web a viable option, along with this week's online entry prize. One lucky winner will receive a prize pack, courtesy of Muscle Milk. Early entry closes Friday, March 22nd, at 11:55PM.
