6x6 ATV racing is back for the fourth year in a row! While some of the details are still being ironed out and are subject to change, Bud wanted me to post some information so you could begin planning your vacations early.
Thanks to Bud Fischer of Fischer Cycle, the weekend of June 23-24th at Pine Lake raceway in Ashtabula, Ohio will mark the fourth consecutive year of six wheeler racing. Check out the pictures and videos from the last three years to see what it is all about:
Six Wheeler Racing in 2011
Six Wheeler Racing in 2010
Six Wheeler Racing in 2009
June 23-24, 2012
These are the official dates but just like last year Bud has graciously offered to open the gates to us even earlier. He said that you can show up any time that week to camp and still only pay for the weekend.
Here is a link to the event on the calendar so that you can get an email reminder if you wish: 6x6 Racing in Ashtabula, Ohio June 23-24, 2012
The Pine Lake racetrack in Ashtabula, OH. USA
Here is a link to the track on Google: Pine Lake
The address associated with it is 3706 Maple Road in Kingsville Ohio
Note: If your GPS or online mapping software doesn't recognize that road use this address for directions: 2488 Plymouth Gageville Rd Ashtabula, OH 44004 That will take you right to Maple Road. Turn on Maple Road and the track should be down on the left.
$35 per person for the entire weekend including primitive camping.
$15 per person (per day) if you just want to come watch. So if you show up Sunday to watch the races you just pay $15 to get in.
$20 per person to enter a class for racing. Most of this money is going towards trophies / plaques.
The classes will depend on the number of people that show up and they will be decided once everyone arrives. Some of the previous classes that we have had were:
Four Stroke Stock
Four Stroke Modified
Two Stroke Stock
Two Stroke Modified
Over 50 class
Free for All
