Local Racing Schedule – by Holly Priest

Hello Everyone,
My name is Holly and I one of your newly elected board members and race liason here at SNMBA. As the race liason, my job is to keep you informed of upcoming races and encourage people to support local racing. We hope that this race schedule will not only help encourage people to ride, but also volunteer for races and watch as spectators. The gravity-fueled races are spectator friendly and are just more fun when people come out to cheer racers on.
