AMA Racing East Hare Scrambles Championship Series resumes in New Jersey

PICKERINGTON, Ohio – The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) Racing East Hare Scrambles Championship Series is set to resume in Port Elizabeth, N.J., this weekend, May 7-8, with a demanding course that features a wide variety of terrain and obstacles, including sand and tight enduro-inspired single-track trail.

“While this spring’s rain and floods have taken their toll, causing the cancellation of round two in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., the AMA Racing East Hare Scrambles Championship is ready to go at full speed this weekend with the Tri-County Sportsmen MC event in New Jersey,” said AMA Racing Off-Road Manager Chuck Weir. “This club does a top job of both running the event and putting together some challenging trail, so we’re confident our racers are in store for a great weekend of off-road competition.”

Factory Husaberg rider and defending AMA Racing East Hare Scrambles Champion Mike Laffertywon the event last year and is excited to return to what he considers his home race.

“This is a tough race, and it can kick your butt if you’re not ready,” Lafferty said. “As motorcycle racers, we’re not just looking for a walk in the park, right? This race is demanding and tough. So if you’re looking for a good physical test, this is your race.”

Youth classes will compete on May 7 while all other classes will line up on May 8. For detailed sign-up times and directions, see TeamHammer.org.

The course for the 3-hour main event is expected to be 12 miles long. C riders, Masters and Golden Masters racers will compete in a 2-hour race in the morning with a slightly shorter track. Pro payout is $500 for first, $375 for second and $250 for third. All A classes will pay a minimum of $175 to win with payouts back to fifth place. The event is run in cooperation with the East Coast Enduro Association, so competitors earn points in that series, as well.

Series contingency is provided by Wiseco, Pro-X, Vee Rubber, Liquid Performance, Fly Racing and Vortex.

Harley Owners Group Offers Prizes for Hoka Hey Challenge

Milwaukee (May 6, 2011) – The Harley-Davidson Motor Company is pleased to announce that it will provide more than $50,000 in contingency prizes to the highest finishing members of the Harley Owners Group who complete the 2011 Hoka Hey Challenge.

 

To recognize the H.O.G. members partaking in this event as among the most adventurous motorcyclists in the world, the highest finishing eligible H.O.G. member who completes the event, as determined by the organizers, will be awarded a 2012 Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations motorcycle of his or her choice. In addition, the 2nd through 5th highest finishing eligible H.O.G. members will each be awarded a portion of a total of $19,000 in additional cash prizes.

 

The Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge will present one of the world’s greatest long-distance endurance motorcycle riding events beginning August 5, 2011. The event, the second annual in a series, begins in Phoenix, Arizona, and travels through all forty-eight contiguous U.S. states and several Canadian provinces to Nova Scotia.  The route will travel more than 10,000 miles, and is open to all riders of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

 

“The Hoka Hey Challenge is a perfect match for the superior touring experience and capabilities of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and the long-distance adventuring aspirations of many of our H.O.G. members,” said Steve Piehl, Harley-Davidson Director of Customer Experience. “The theme of the Hoka Hey Challenge is ‘It’s a good day to ride!’ and that is always the case on a Harley.”

 

To be eligible for any contingency award, the rider must be a H.O.G. member in good standing at the time the ride starts and must display a H.O.G. emblem on his or her riding gear and in a prominent location on the motorcycle (preferably on the windshield or Tour Pak) throughout the event. The H.O.G. member must be the designated rider (passengers not eligible) and meet all eligibility requirements for the event. H.O.G. emblems and decals will be provided free of charge to all members who participate in the event at the start of the challenge.

 

As an event and contingency sponsor only, Harley-Davidson Motor Company is not responsible for organizing or conducting the event, and will defer all decisions regarding final finishing order to the event organizers.
