Default TREC Race #1 - Badlands Attica, Indiana March 9th



TREC Race #1 of 5 is this weekend at the Badlands Ofrroad Park in Attica, Indiana.

If you've never heard of TREC or never been to the Badlands, it's a good excuse to come down and check it out. The park is open regular hours so you can wheel all day and then after the park closes the course is cleared and the race is started. Usually 30 minutes to an hour after park closing.

TREC races are 2 hours long and wind throughout the Badlands. If you are down there and see orange arrows pointing in different directions around the park, then you can follow them and see what the course is like. We run through the woods, up and down the bigger hills, through the dunes and through parts of the trail system.

If you are interested in racing, they are adopting the Ultra 4 rules to try and make it where you can race in more series and more people can come race with us. Races are $125 to enter. There are basically 3 classes A/Unlimited, B/Modified, and C/Stock. There are also classes for racing side by sides and they run at the same time through the same course as us. I believe their entry fee is lower and the races are only an hour instead of 2 hours; but check with the Badlands office for details on that.

So who's going down there this weekend?

B-Class 618
XJ driven by Hosejockey and his brother
B-Class #?
XJ driven by wakebabe and Bones
B-Class 715
driven by JohnnyJ and JeepM715
A-Class 4051
driven by jhnyquest and Grassman
SXS #?
driven by Trail Junkie

I know AlumCJ is leaving his 4418 A-class at home but is coming down for the weekend.

if you don't have your creepystache then you may need to introduce yourself. I doubt I'll recognize you without it.
