    2003 Motorcycle Racing Action

    COVER PHOTO: Motorcycle Racing Action

    Welcome Race Fans! Well were off and running, the 2003 race season is officially in gear. We started early this year with Round # 1 of the B/P Promotions State Hare Scramble Series getting underway at the FDMC in early February. I know you guys are ready to ride; close to 300 riders came out in the cold and the muck to do battle on the Dutchmen course. Then we moved indoors to the warm dry course at the 25th Annual Motorama, this is the kick off race for the motocross season here in D-6. Again, another great turnout. After that the Sleepy Hollow opener, if you love the mud Sleepy was the place to be, over 300 riders showed up to brave the elements. Just one week later, you had to see it to believe it, its 70 degrees at Pagoda and they had to water the track to keep the dust down. You gotta love this sport. Id like to say way to go to all the track owners and their staff that busted their tales getting their facilities ready for us to use this winter. And to all the warriors both male and female alike that came out to race in this stuff, you guys are what keeps this sport alive. MRA is looking forward to another great racing season in 2003, as always say hi to us when you see us at the track. Ride fast and safe and well see you at the races.
