The opening round of the Yamaha QuadX Series, presented by STI, kicks off Sunday, February 16th, at the world-famous Glen Helen Raceway Park in San Bernardino. This opener is the first of eight rounds that will culminate in the prestigious STI Yamaha QuadX Championship!
The event begins Saturday with practice sessions from 8AM to 2PM for all quads on Glen Helen’s International Track! Sign-up opens Sunday at 6:30 AM with practice at 8:30 AM. Racing will follow practice; the race schedule will be posted up after sign-ups/practice closes.
Gate fees are a mere $10 for adults, with kids 6-12 years old only $5. Saturday practice fee is $25 per quad. Entry fees are $50 for pro classes, $45 for Pro/Am, $40 for amateur classes and $35 for youth classes. No membership is required!
The big news for 2014 is the addition of classes for SXS (side by side) vehicles at all QuadX Series races. At Glen Helen, the SxS vehicles will be racing on the Lucas Oil Truck Track; all other venues the SxS vehicles will race on the same track as the quads.
Side by Side vehicle modifications and gear to qualify for racing are simple: Roll cages (stock cages are OK!); hand restraints, proper racing attire (motocross gear is fine), helmet, and fire extinguisher (on-board). With these common-sense mods, everyone can qualify to race!
The classes will include youth classes, 700cc and below, 700-899cc, 900cc and up, and of course the exciting modified class! Race entry fees for the SxS is only $40 per class, and of course there are no membership requirements!
There will be a series champion for each class at the end of the series. In addition, BigKid Racing will be providing on-track support for all vehicles at each of the QuadX events. BigKid will also be raffling off at least two pressure washers at the end of the series. . . each racer who makes all the events will be included in a raffle! Stay tuned for additional details!
This year’s series is expected to be ultra-competitive, with many Pro/Am riders from last year moving up to the Pro ranks. Since the Yamaha QuadX Series is the premier quad racing series in the Southland, the amateur gates are always packed making for very exciting, competitive racing!
