Announcing the 2007 Midwest Nitrocross Off Road RC Series

Here is all the info:

Midwest Nitrocross is planning it’s 2nd year of Off Road Nitro Series racing for Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois! Our inaugural series in 2006 saw just under 200 entries…everybody racing for their share of over $1,000 in prizes, including trophies, car kits, and cold hard cash! 2007 is shaping up to be even bigger and better. Four nitro classes ( 8th Scale Buggy, 8th Scale Truck, Monster Truck, 10th Scale Truck ) will compete at six tracks, carefully being planned over the course of the summer. His And Hers Hobbies in Kenosha is returning as our series sponsor and this year they are putting up $100 in gift certificates at each and every race, as well as hosting the banquet for the 2nd year in a row! We have more great sponsors signing on every week, so go to www.mwnx.com to get the most up to date race schedule and to discuss the series on our message boards with the guys that ran and made last year so successful.

Below is what I’m going to call an “approximate estimated race schedule”, as exact dates are slowly trickling in. I will forward the schedule as it progresses and race time get’s closer. You'll notice that I also included the RCKhaos and RC Pro Wisconsin State Series races...there's alot of stuff going on this year!

RCK Championship - Oct 6th, 7th - Northern Hobbies
Wisconsin RC Pro Series first three rounds are yet to be determined.

I am open to suggestions in regards to an additional Illinois location…as a seventh round…we would add that race into the series somehow. So if you know of a track located in Illinois, that is within a 1.5 hour drive of the WI/IL state line, and you have raced there and you can recommend the facility, please go to the following link and make a post there with the track name, contact info, etc.

Tshirts will be available on a pre-order basis only this year, due to the high cost of bulk shirt orders. They can be paid for in cash at the track or online via PayPal. They will be delivered to the track when the next order comes in.

I never expected the 2006 season to end up as popular as it did, and I thank all the guys that did come out for showing your support. I made a lot of new friends this year, hopefully all of which I will keep in contact with for years to come! Without the attendance of you racers in 2006…we wouldn’t be here planning the 2007 series. One thing is sure, this year will be every bit as fun as last year, and we’re looking forward to an even bigger and better 2007. It’s a shame that we can only make time for one race at each venue this year, but that just means a tighter, closer points race!

All of that being said, I’m looking forward to seeing all of you this summer at the tracks we’re visiting. Remember, even if you’re not a top points contender, these events are great places to get away from it all with some great friends and family!

I just want to make sure that you guys keep an eye on the "OFFICIAL" Midwest Nitrocross Calendar Of Events...as it's hard to make sure every message board online is kept current...

http://www.mwnx.com/MWNXSeries/MWNX2007-1.pdf

Also, as an update on the prizes up for grabs, this is how it works. The prizes are open ONLY to those that race the series...regardless of whether you race one race in the series, or every race in the series. We track all the entries and at the end of the year, at the banquet, you will receive one(1) ticket for each event you attended. For example, if you race one event, you will receive one(1) chance at the prizes. If you race all six events, you will receive six(6) chances at the prizes. If you pay for a season of racing, but only show up to one race...you only get one ticket...not all six. Key point being, those that show up the most, and show their support the most, get the most chances at the prizes.

As of right now, we do NOT have a buggy, truggy, or other large "item" up for grabs on the raffle. Instead, we will be holding a 50/50 raffle at every round this year. This is new to me, but multiple people have told me it's the way to go. The tickets that you buy at the 50/50 raffle each week have nothing to do with the tickets you receive at the banquet...other than the proceeds of the 50/50 every week go right into the pot for the end of the year banquet drawing. This is how it works:

We will have 50/50 tickets for sale at each round for $2 each or six(6) for $10

Up to $80 = one winner. $82 or more = two winners

If we sell $80 worth of tickets at a given round, then $40 goes to one(1) winner that week, and the other $40 goes into the banquet drawing fund.

If we sell $82 worth of tickets at a given round, then $41 goes to two(2) winners that week, and the other $41 goes into the banquet drawing fund.

This adds up to a potentially VERY LARGE amount that will be raffled off at the end of the series at the banquet.

You MUST BE PRESENT at the banquet to win raffle prizes. The only items you don't need to be present to win are the trophies.

I might have left something out, feel free to ask any questions.

Friday, March 30, Less than 30 days now before the start of the Midwest Nitrocross Off-Road points series begins! April 22 is rapidly approaching, although you wouldn't be able to guess it by the weather! Two or three days in the 70s, everybody takes out their lawn furniture, then two or three days of temperatures and weather that make you wonder whether or not you will need to get the snow shovel back out! Aaaahh the Midwest! Well, one good thing about our season opener at Leisure Hours Raceway is that weather has NO effect, no such thing as a rain date! Pick yourself up some indoor clay tires if you haven't done so yet! Also, just a reminder, if you will be travelling to LHR for the first time, get directions from their website because it doesn't work with Mapquest! The first order of Tshirts has gone in, but that doesn't mean you can't get in on it if you haven't done so yet...it just means I have to wait until I get at least another dozen on order. Also, if you haven't picked up some Byrons fuel, your time is running out! To be eligible for the Byrons contingency you must be running the fuel and decals at EVERY race that Midwest Nitrocross promotes this year. I will have the decals at every race, but you will have to supply the fuel!

In other news, Bill Van Kirk at His And Hers Hobbies will be placing an order for fuel very soon, so take a minute to vote for your favorite Byron Blend so that Bill can be sure to stock the fuel most appropriate! Bill will also be posting the schedule for the His And Hers / Midwest Nitrocross Summer Legends Series in the next couple weeks, keep an eye out on the message boards and on the His And Hers website. If you haven't heard about it yet, the summer Legends series is a carpet oval series open to Bolink Legends electric cars. Some of you might think this sounds like a cake walk compared to the rigors of Outdoor, Off-Road Nitro racing, but think again! This is spec racing, which means it's driver versus driver, and although this has been called one of the most affordable, enjoyable and laid back forms of carpet racing, the competition is very close...bring your A-Main game!
