From a press release:<BR><BR>SPECIAL WHEELIE CONTEST TO BE HELD AT JULY and AUGUST WSMC MEETS! <BR><BR>WSIR has posted a $2000 cash award to the top 3 for the Fastest Wheelie ridden on the front straight at Willow Springs – the "Finals" to be held at the TOYOTA 200 weekend on Sept. 14-15 2002! <BR><BR>WSMC will host two qualifying rounds, one at our July 20 meet and one at our August 17 meet. <BR><BR>The top 5 fastest wheelie riders from each meet will be seeded into the finals. The top 5 from the July meet will not be eligible to qualify top 5 again in August, but may participate if they so desire. Riders MUST be licensed WSMC road race competitors and MUST wear full racegear during the events. Motorcycles used may not use any wheelie bars, gyroscopic devices or any other method of "wheelie assistance". A radar gun will be used by WSIR Officials to determine the speed measured at the start-finish line. Staging will be located in turn 9 (no running starts!). The promoter (WSIR) retains the right to add additional riders in the Finals as a "promoter option". <BR><BR>Entry forms will be available at the track (July and August) - and the event is sponsored by WILLOW SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY so there is NO ENTRY FEE! <BR>
