CMRA Racing Headed Back to Texas World Speedway This Weekend

This coming weekend, July 25-27, 2014, the Central Motorcycle Roadracing Association (CMRA) will be tearing up the track at Texas World Speedway in College Station, Texas. The track is located just south of Bryan/College Station on Highway 6. Texas World Speedway, one of only seven Super Speedways in the US, is composed of two road courses: a 1.8-mile short course and a 2.9-mile long course. Race fans will see both courses utilized this weekend.

The weekend activities begin at 7:00 a.m. Friday with a CMRA License school, racer practice and street-rider track day provided by Lone Star Track Days (www.lstd.com).

Saturday's schedule begins with a full slate of Mini and Lightweight Sprint races, including the Four81 Motos-sponsored Grom Challenge, Altus Motorsports-sponsored 300 and 500 SuperSport and Rainbow Sox Racing-sponsored Junior Motard class for the youngest racers, ages 8-12 years old. The 4th round of CMRA Lightweight Endurance Series, a 6-hour race, begins promptly at 10:45 a.m. Racing concludes with the 4th and final round of the Team 60 race, unique and popular because of the LeMans-style start. A trophy presentation and trackside racer/spectator Meet and Greet party is a welcome finish to the full day of racing.

Sunday's schedule is jam-packed with a full day's worth of competitive Big Bike sprint races. Among the exciting classes not to be missed is the Breast Cancer Research Foundation / P1 Racing Formula 1 Expert class. In addition to a cash purse totaling $11,000 paid out to the top Formula 1 Expert finishers over the course of the 2014 season, a portion of each entry fee is donated to Breast Cancer Research. A few of the other weekend purse paying classes include, HigPerformanceCrew.com – Formula 40 HW Expert ($500), Raceworx – A Superstock Expert ($165) and South Central Race Center – C Superstock Expert ($185). A full list of sponsored classes and payouts can be found here: http://www.cmraracing.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=263&d=1397251277

There is live timing and scoring available for all the races via the Race-Monitor App on mobile devices and online at cmraracing.com/timing.html.

Gates open each day at 6:00 a.m. and we race rain or shine! Weekend entry into the event is only $15 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and just $10 on Sunday. Tickets are good for the entire weekend. Ride your street bike to the event and you'll pay just $5 for entry on both Saturday and Sunday! Kids 12 and under are free. A spectator lap of the track will be conducted during the lunch break on Sunday, schedule and weather permitting. Bring a cooler or visit the on-site concession stand serving both breakfast and lunch each day.

Please note that NO PETS are allowed at any of the CMRA race events.
