Alright guys its starting to get cold here so I figured its time to post this and give everyone plenty of time to make plans! This is the biggest indoor pit bike race on the east coast and gets bigger every year. Starting to get more and more people showing up out of state as well. Last year they ran 3 heats for the 12" open class and also ran LCQ for the guys that didn't make it out of the heats. At this event they run big bikes, quads and minis but the pit bikes are the main show beside the big bike money class. For all you guys saying its too far of a drive, I got Koby to fly out couple years back and may be making the trip again this year. Also had Brent Molitor drive 12 or so hours from Minnesota with a roller, relying on me for a motor. Still hoping the 2up crew catches onto this and brings out there rig as well. I will be contacting the TBolt crew as well as Mike from TB Parts to hopefully make an appearance. This is a very competitive event but also fun for everyone. Wholesale Cycle is there every year with a canopy and full pit for pitbikes. I would love to have the other dealers show up with tents as well to show everyone how big the pitbike scene really is. If anyone is hesitating about flying out, you are more than welcome to ship your bike to my house and pick it up.

Awesome video. What bike were you on? 2nd gear for the most eh?
Piranha 190, yep 2nd mostly or a lot of guys are in 3rd if you got short gearing. Track is perfect for pitbikes.

So whose all going going to Summit! Hoping to see a big turn out! It will be my first time attending the event. Also should try and organize a ride day at Ram Jam And Switchback Mx indoor! Switchback is also running Pit bike races this year, id be cool if they ran the pit bike event as legit as Summit, currently looks more like an afterthought. I tried contacting Switchback asking about Rules for the Pit bike Class but haven't heard back yet.
