Round 06 Wilson’s Dirt Park XC

While we were all enjoying a beautiful Mother’s Day weekend, our awesome Track Directors were out toiling away at Wilson’s DirtPark preparing the location for our upcoming race.
Wilson’s Dirt Park will offer a layout that will appeal to riders that liked Rush Springs and is very similar all almost all regards. It’s a fast track, totaling 5 miles for the long course. You’ll start with 1 mile of very mild MX, then a mile of open woods and ravine trails, then another mile of the MX and then 2 miles of flowing grass track. The grass track sections are mowed, so it will be very easy to follow the trail. The grass track sections utilize terraces for jumps and fun banked turns. Like Rush Springs, we are looking for our racers to respect the layout and race the track we put out there for you. Due to the shorter length of the track, we will once again use 30 second starts.
Now to the parking situation. We have a very nice parking area available at Wilson’s. The parking area is flat and the landowner mowed the whole area for us. Thank you!
This is another good spectator location as a good majority of the track is visible from the camping area, so you’ll be able to keep tabs on those exciting battles. We need race fans to be very aware of track crossings and at this location we do not want a lot of vehicles crossing the track.
I know you’re also all glued to the news channels as they talk about this week’s stormy forecast. We’re keeping an eye on it as well, but as far as the location goes, it can handle a good amount of rain and a decent rain would probably make for epic soil conditions.
Now for the thank yous – let’s give a pat on the back to David Brown, Quinton Cranford, Jason LaHood, Garret Young, Russell Doughty and the landowner of Wilson’s. Like I said before, these folks spent their weekend laying out, marking and preparing the track instead of just kicking back and enjoying the beautiful weather. Thanks again, guys. Your hard work means the world to all of us racers!
Monday Evening Update from Jason LaHood:
Garret and I went out and finished trimming today and got a quick video. Right now it’s 4.9 miles.  But, we have a few woods loops we’re trying add in, weather permitting. We’re waiting for the track owner to smooth out the wash outs and ruts with the tractor. And he said he’ll drag the track to smooth out the wash outs for the minis. Also the last stretch in the field may incorporate a slalom around the horse barrels or something. This video is a good preview of the terrain and shows how safe the moto track is – it’s actually a side by side track.
Russell has decided to keep the kids out of the woods due to the rain and hilly terrain. They will run the moto and grass fields and parents will be able to see the entire race. Binoculars would be a great idea!
Camping may be a little tight, but we had early birds camping all over the place last time and it was dangerous with the track crossings.  There will also be a no-generator zone so that tent campers can get a good night’s sleep.
