Welcome back NYOA Racers and Families! Are you ready to get down and dirty in The Boondocks? We are! The Stith Family and their crew have literally been working all summer to build a brand new track on new property for you for Round 9!
COURSE DESCRIPTION: Course maps are available on all OFFICIAL NYOA social media sources.
156 Pitcher Springs Rd Pitcher, NY 13136. Continue straight up the hill about two miles, following the arrows the entire way.
THE WEEKEND: The Boondocks crew has lined up some sponsors for "Catch the Rabbit" this weekend!!
-ONLINE REGISTRATION: Closes THURSDAY AT MIDNIGHT. The online system is for current AMA and NYOA members only. CLICK HERE
Day riders and new series members must still go to registration at the event to get signed up.
-SCORING: As you're getting your machines and gear ready this week, please check the numbers that need to be visible when you come through scoring. If you are running a different number than what you have on your machine, please go to registration and get stickers to put over your graphics. Also, check your helmet stickers. You should have one on each side on the chin and the back. If you lose your transponder or it stops working during the race, hand scoring is the back up. We can't score you if we can't see your number.
-SOCIAL DISTANCING: This county has asked us to continue the same protocols we have been following this season. You must have a face covering if you cannot social distance. If you are on the starting line and not the rider, you must have a face covering. Please maintain social distance when possible. Follow the instructions of the officials or risk disqualification.
-PARKING: Please continue to park campers parallel only and be conscious of utilizing space. Campers should be ten feet apart. Please park responsibly and be courteous. FOR SUNDAY ONLY ATTENDEES- DO NOT block others in! Ask before parking in front or behind someone.
-HEALTH AND SAFETY!!: It seems like every week we have to address things that really should be common sense..but, here we are, so;
*DO NOT touch someone else's generator. If you have a concern with the noise level, have an adult conversation with the owner, or find a worker to help you. Don't just unplug it.
*PIT RIDING HAS TO STOP! Officials had several conversations with people about various forms of this at the last race and noted names and numbers. IF YOU HAVE TO BE ADDRESSED AGAIN YOU (OR YOUR RIDER) WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
*IF YOU AREN'T FEELING WELL, experiencing ANY symptoms, or have a temperature greater than 100.4, please stay home. We will see you at another event.
Our goal is to continue to have events this season and we can't do that without everyone's continued cooperation. Thank you for doing your part!
We will see you all this weekend!
With the end of our 2020 season quickly approaching, we want to share what we know at this point about the two rounds, Berkshire Hills Round Up and Broome-Tioga, that we were not able to run as scheduled due to COVID-19.
Berkshire Hills Round Up will not be rescheduled for 2020, but they are planning to return to our schedule in 2021.
Broome-Tioga has requested and been granted the opportunity to hold their event on October 11th. This event is CONFIRMED. We are pleased to announce that Tom Hurd has received written permission from the Tioga County Legislature Chair granting authorization for the event on October 11th. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN WORKING THIS EVENT- Reach out to Tom or Peg at:
Thank you again for your patience as we work through this season. We appreciate it more than you know.
-The NYOA Board

Attention Racers & Families:
We know everyone is excited and anxious to get back to racing. In an effort to provide accurate and as current information as possible, we will be posting updates for every race starting on the TUESDAY PRIOR TO THE RACE WEEKEND.
We communicate through the OFFICIAL NYOA Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and website. The social accounts are linked at the bottom of the website. (SNAPCHAT- nyoaxc_official)
There are other social media pages out there that are about our series and are great places for members to talk and share, but they are not run by NYOA leadership or managed by out social media team and we do not post official information on them. Sometimes members will copy and paste the official updates on those accounts or pages to share information, but we do encourage you to follow the official social media accounts as well. If you have questions you want official answers to, as always your best resources are your Rider Reps, or one of the official NYOA accounts.
Please understand that this season has presented a unique set of challenges for our series. There are individuals out there who do not want to see our series succeed or even continue. They are actively trying to get our events shut down every week. We have been made aware and have responded to calls made to the state and local authorities where 100% false information was given about our events. Because our promoters and NYOA leadership have been proactive in working with municipalities before our events and fulfilling their requests, we have been mostly successful in dealing with these anonymous calls and internet complaints citing false information. We are pursuing all avenues including filing FOIL requests and consulting legal counsel to advise us on legally pursuing the slanderous claims.
We appreciate all of you and your patience. Please know we will provide all updates as we have them.
-Chip Mann, President
We have many new members and day riders coming out to our event, so we wanted to share some important reminders with all of you to keep us all on the same page.
PIT RIDING: We have had some concerns brought forward about this. IT IS NOT ALLOWED. If you have a reason to have a handicap pass, please see Lori Calkins at Budget Racing to get the proper paperwork. In addition, DOUBLE RIDING IS NOT ALLOWED. If our officials see people riding like that with or without helmet(s) we can have you, or your rider, disqualified.
VENDOR ROW: There are NO MOTORIZED VEHICLES allowed on Vendor Row. This includes going to and from the start. It is a safety issue and you can be disqualified for riding through there.
PARKING COURTESY: Again, this is common sense. DO NOT block other vehicles. DO NOT block roadways/ driving lanes. You may have to walk a bit to get where you're going. Be respectful of each other.
REGISTRATION: Hours will be 4:30-6:30 Saturday and 7:00-2:00 Sunday. PLEASE HAVE ALL FORMS FILLED OUT BEFORE YOU COME, an UNexpired AMA Card (or a photo on your phone), minor release (if needed), exact change, and your own pen. FACE COVERINGS SHOULD BE WORN TO AND IN THE TENT. One person only in line, please do not come in groups. Respect social distancing.
*THIS EVENT IS FOR RACERS, THEIR TEAMS, AND THEIR PIT CREWS ONLY. NO SPECTATORS ARE ALLOWED*
COMPETITION BULLETIN FOR ADULT QUAD COLLEGE B & COLLEGE C CLASSES:
With the large number of racers in both of these classes, and with first corner safety in mind, we are splitting both lines.
THE CLASSES WILL NOW BE:
-College B1 (19-21), College B2 (16-18)
-College C1 (19-21), College C2 (16-18)
ALL RACERS WILL KEEP THEIR CURRENT NUMBERS.
The B1 & C1 classes will line up on the same start line as before. The B2 & C2 lines will line up right behind them on a new line at the start.
Points for the first 3 races will be updated into the new classes.
Each class (B1, B2, C1, C2) will get plaques at races and each class will be be recognized for year end awards.
You will be contacted to let you know what class you will be in.
Also, at registration you will be given 2 helmet stickers with B1, B2, C1, C2 on the sticker. 1 for the top of your helmet and 1 for your machine to help make sure everyone is on the correct starting line.
Your Quad Rider Reps will be contacting the racers in these lines. Please contact them with any questions- their contact info can be found on the "Contact Us" page of the website.
