Title: Re: ANNOUNCING! the "2011 V-TWIN SHOOTOUT" race coming to Michigan
Post by: fordman21 on December 09, 2010, 12:12:02 PM
Sorry Jason, there won't be any travel money at this time, things could change in the future, but! we plan on feeding you guys and making this an experience you'll never forget.
This will be a major event with a lot of racers attending, keep in mind your going to be racing on a banked prepared clay race track. With a race track like that, and super high horse power, we are expecting to see a show and speeds never before seen, this is truly going to be the Daytona 500 of lawnmower racing.
There are outlaw/supermod machines all over the place being built as we speak, I think everyone was waiting for an excuse to build one, the "V-Twin Shootout" is the icing on the cake and one of the deciding factors to get them built. Can't wait for this event  8)

We were thinking about this,
The V-Twin Shootout will be a 40 lap race in total, with a mandatory 1-1.5 min pit stop at 20 laps to re-fuel, have a drink, alter tire pressures if need be and so on. The mowers will be stopped on the front straight-away in order.

This event is not affiliated with any sanctioning body in particular, it is more of an open event. As co-hosts of the event the Western Ontario Outlaws are not affiliated with any U.S. sanctioning body at this time.
As mentioned earlier we will run the prepared classes, along with Outlaw/supermod and other open type and stock classes. All mowers have to meet the safety requirements to run, that's what we will be teching mowers for, to make sure they are safe.

If anyone is interested in sponsoring this major event please contact myself or Ferris by pm please.
We are looking for a primary sponsorship that we could name the event after such as the (The "Your Name" 2011 V-Twin Shootout) the sooner the better to take advantage of the publicity before August and beyond.
 We don't neccesarily need the funds at the moment,  we can go over the details, a committment would be fine for now.
Also looking for secondary sponsors, all sponsors will be recognized and presented in a professional manner, we have certain packages available but the amount of support is negotiable.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to be a part of this huge International event.    8)

First time Ive seen this post. I will come to watch and meet fellow heymowers. My kid has raced her kart at vestaburg a few times. Very nice track, nice people and Dave the owner is a very nice guy as well. The track is very nice if I didn't mention that. They run winged outlaw 250cc sprint karts. Those are super fast and stick so you guys on the baddest of the bad mowers should have no problem.

Title: Re: ANNOUNCING! the "2011 V-TWIN SHOOTOUT" race coming to Michigan
Post by: bountyhunter on December 30, 2010, 12:25:20 PM
Ok
Its hard to fit all the different Mowers from all the different clubs in! and trying to keep it as fair for all
 had thought at one time of having classes by engine with total open chassis but to put a B/P against the W.O.O. Outlaws that wouldn’t be totally fair so that’s why we are going this root! So its a chassis thing with all the Prepared  classes
Here is my thoughts on that
 we will run the Prepared Chassis classes under a more open format
  Like B/P Super Sportsman Open Class meaning they must be Some what close to the B/P Super Sportsman spec’s
As long as they are Safe!!! That!! is the main thing
But unless there is major !!differences  and it meets all the Safety spec yr  good to go
let me give you a example, say you show up with a pan chassis frame with out Major mod,s that meet all the spec’s but has a front bumper and Nerf bars you would still be good to go
 but come with same thing running on Kart tires and a lot of frame mod,s than no yr going to have to run the open class
I hope this answers yr ??s give me a call John
All mowers will run in if there safe!!!

Just to let you guys know, fabricated chassis's are allowed to run in the twin and single shootout classes. As mentioned, as long as your machine is safe you're good to go.
Title: Re: ANNOUNCING! the "2011 V-TWIN SHOOTOUT" race coming to Michigan
Post by: bountyhunter on January 06, 2011, 01:50:31 PM
Engine placement can be changed but must be centered side to side in frame
Up to 6" offset allowed, may stagger tire height
No Aluminum  frames
Frames may be home built
but must be lawnmower style
round tube ok for Super/stock and Super/mod
Aluminum Kart axles ok
these are the rules for the J/p Stock,Pro/Stock,and Super/Stock classes
And heres some on the track rules!!!
The most important rule is to keep your lawn mower under control at all times!!
The driver making a pass is responsible for making a safe pass!
Excessive bumping will not be allowed!
You may not advance your position on the track by moving / bumping other lawn mowers!

 had one HD on my cub cadet with the Kohler, I just couldn't get enough alcohol in the engine with only one needle and seat, even modified to flow more it just wasn't enough. It would have been fine on gas I'm sure.  It worked excellent until it ran out of fuel



Got to tell you Ryan that blows my mind that must use a lot of fuel!!!
no wander yr the man to beat

Tractor 88 whatch u talking about willis :badgrin:boss you are not suspose to be getting are buddys hopes up be for i beat him at the shootout

George wrote Keep swellin his head!!! I want it big fat and comfy for the shoot out. We will finally get the match up we been waiting on. For whatever reason its simply not happened up to this point but the shoot out will prove to be....a SHOOT OUT!!!

Ryan wrote You can't promote the V-Twin Shootout race in Vestaburg Michigan Aug 13th-14th better then that    I guess everyone will have to make it out to see who's going to take home the shootout title


George wrote YUP I won't have ANY distractions, No other classes to wear me out, it will be ALL GAME FACE with some SUPERMAN humor spread evenly about. SUPERMAN and his itty bitty INDIAN taking on One ARMED BANDIT with the BIG BAD KOHLER. S0 far I am 0 for 2 first time I was severly out chassis'd second time I was unable to make the feature. Can't count the Canadian run he spent it in the Hospital... And the feature was rained out but What is the ole Cliche" Thrid times a charm!!!!
OH how I love it..

A sign of the times. Do a big race like this and see what it cost to put it on. Ain't cheap my boy. UNLESS you got BIG sponsors that are covering the bill the money has to come from somehwere.

I didnt think $40 for ALL 3 events was bad!
thats like $13.333 per event most places are 8-15 FOR one race and thats nothing special!

Ferris when racers have been used to going and paying nothing at events such as Nats etc, then suddenly a big event charges they wonder why!!! This sport has been done for so long and its been so cheap many events not charging racers they get used to it. We all do. BUT times change expenses go up, sponsors put out less n less its gotta come from somehwere. We even charged at the All American 25 per. May even go up this year. It is what it is. Lots of venues and small clubs are not blessed aith big sponsors to foot the bill. Oh well it nots bad just some are not used to it. I mean for me n Jake thats 80.00 plus travel but it won't stop us. Best part is we know early enough to plan for it and around it. ITS ALL GOOD.

A couple things to remember:
 First and foremost, we are racing on a top notch clay banked oval track, not on a piece of grass somewhere where the track is wooped up the night before.
Everything is included in that fee, and we are going to feed you guys as well. Like George says this is what you can expect from a high profile event such as this.

On a side note, I'll bet you can really appreciate what major sponsors like Sta-Bil are doing for the sport of lawnmower racing, and how much money they are saving lawnmower racers. Pretty easy to take that for granted, I try to support them back as much as I can  ;)

Anyway I'll guarantee you'll have $10,000 worth of fun, and besides...... Rooster will be there   :woo:

With Ryans $10,000 worth of entertainment also comes the cost to rebuild an outlaw after we all learn they dont fly as well as a baja ride, or maybe not even as well as Supermans Ole Red. But maybe then again, you will be totally switched to rocker arms. Now THAT would be worth $10,000  :lol:

Hey guys, the meeting with Dave at the Vestaburg Kart Speedway went well today, we figured out the last details, and made a few changes...     

The V-twin shootout will now be a 2 day event (saturday/sunday) due to some local noise restrictions.  There will still be free rustic camping friday & saturday night for those of you planning to arrive on friday.

There will now be a better deal on the pit passes, was $10 each day, now $15 for 2 days.

A change has been make in the rules requiring all drivers of V-twin machines to be 18 years or older.

Any questions contact Ferris (Bounyhunter) or check the Vtwin shootout website at www.vtwinshootout.com

Ok ryan might have to venture up that way... I don't have a billet wheel though but im still unclear whether advance keys are legal or not either way is no big deal

Post by: BIG AL 202 on August 04, 2011, 07:50:57 PM
Advanced keys in pure stock is NOT legal you can ONLY change exhaust and air cleaner.
Ok guys just so we are clear on this the Stock class is that stock 28 cu inch flathead you can remove govenor add exhaust pipe and aftermarket aircleaner NO OTHER MODS ALOWED this class is for the budget racer take engine of mower and go !for those that want to add mods we have a pro stock class for the limited built one see the rules please!!!! See the dirt devils site 4 engine specs oh if I have reason 2 think yr engine isnt stock I reserve right to have you remove intake and exhaust pipe aircleaner fan shrowd and nut and washer holdin flywheel
Oh if I/we find mods u will b disqualified any ???s
        Here is what ferris, the president of the dirt devils, said. He has the final word with this one. Just clarifing for you! Hope this helps, any more questions ask on here or pm bountyhunter.

So how many laps are we running for heats and features then. Well I guess heat wouldn't bother me since it'll be shorter, but if we really are running 40, I'm gonna be in trouble.

Ryan won't last for 40 laps lol      i can see 10 lap heats and 20 or 25 lap features.  

I will be helping Ryan as much as i can.    Won't be close to the track    Got run over yesterday and it hurts.   I really don't like straw bales,  a driver hit one and got sucked into them and then took me out.   Three stiches and very sore.   Happened on the second lap of the first race after a rain delay. :(   still don't know how i lost my shoe lol

Post by: Burwell555 on August 09, 2011, 10:05:50 PM
Ferris, the thing that makes me wonder about 40 laps split in half. You say everybody will stop on the front stretch midway...so if a guy has worked to gain a 1/2 straightaway on a guy he loses it at the half way point. I don't know about you, but I would think the first half won't be the best racing we could see...rather drivers 'saving themselves' for the last 20.
Solution, instead of fuel tanks, strap whole fuel can on the back of the chassis and turn em loose for 40. THEN we will see who's tough LOL

In a 40 lap race, you better be saving yourself and your mower!

A break at 20 laps is no different than a yellow you loose any lead you have a racer is gonna go regardless if its 10 20 or 40 laps. The place to be is out front wheather its a mower length or half track.

I hear there has been some complaints about the extra $10 per additional mower.
Guys you have to realize that if you have four mowers you will have four times the track time and four times the chance of winning then the guy that paid $40 for the weekend for one tractor, instead of paying $40 for extra mowers it would have only been $10 more. Sounds like a deal to me, not unreasonable at all.
Please remember that this is not a USLMRA event and Sta-Bil isn't paying your way this time, this is what racing really costs. We had to pull strings to get it that cheap. Keep in mind that you are paying to race on a super fast clay banked oval track.

Zach was about 2 seconds faster in the time trials. I think my problem was wrong gearing we will see in the heat race if the rain stops

Dont see where anyone said anything bad about Ryans mower.. The discussion was mainly about the CP class and we clarified that NO Zach did not set the Fastest time that Ryan did that!!! Dont see nowhere it was mentioned to be a turd or anything else for that matter.

That Crouch mower is FASTTTTTT!!!!!!.......Drove the mower to a second place. Between the Indian and Opposed there was some GREAT racing. Its going to pretty much come down to driver motors are very comparable to each other. Meeting everyone was great. Big thanks the Drew Burton and Zach Burwell for letting me crash in their room last night. Now time to get ready for Pennsylvania.

Hey all the 2011 Vtwin shootout was a great success!  There was a lot of very fast, very clean racing going on.  Even though the weather was being difficult, the track turned out great thanks to Dave and the crew at Vestaburg Kart Speedway.  Now a few people in North America have some real bragging rights for at least a year  ;)  Thanks to everyone who make the drive to come race with us, hopefully we can make this an anual event!!  :D

Ryan's mower didn't run well,most of the time, only on one cylinder and couldn't do anything about it.He didn't bring any ignition parts to fix it.At the last he was in a corner and the other cylinder came in and flung him off the track.

It was really great meeting ALL of you guys finally. The names have faces,lol.  Congrat's to all the winners, and also the guys and girls who ran,seems everyone had fun. GREAT SHOW! So thats what happened to Ryan, bummer, he did have a rough night at the motel. Seems he was kept awake by other guests in other rooms, makes for a tough day.

Ok there was a lot of good hype before the race the oppposed of Tppmmy against the Techumseth of Zach  But i believe was a briggs ohv single in the Crouch mower the race started with Daniels mowers gettin to first corner first and comin out with Zach and Tommy right be hind then not sure when but early Zach got up on 2 and went of track and messed his front up and of he went but that kind messed Tommy up a little puttin him back some but Daniel ran real good lines and was consitaint Tommy got close if i remenber for a bit but made a couple little errors that set him back as far as any of those 3 engines being a lot better than the others no they all were VERY strong and could and win lots of races i wish Zach wouldnt have broke because it was close was a good race but gota take hat of to them Crouchs very good mowers

Had a great time with all my old and new friends. Glad I got the supermod done in time to race against the outlaws. Qualified 4th out of 8 so my little Vannie was doing good. Was battling it out in the front when the throttle started sticking open. Kinda scary going into a corner at close to 50mph and it not slowing down. Stab the clutch and got the heck out of the way. Oh well, not bad for the first race on the new machine. The BP ran good but not enough for the Crouch machines. 2nd in the heat and 3rd in the feature. Awesome weekend. Even let my daughter run the supermod. Made her weekend. i don't think she wants her single anymore though. LOL

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the first annual V-Twin Shootout race. There was some real close racing and clean racing all weekend. I would like to thank all of our sponsors for making the race possible, Blitz USA, ARC racing to name a couple. The Vestaburg kart Speedway was a real clean facility, Dave the track owner kept the track perfect all day long. Great job he and his crew did there, What a nice set up they have.
It sounds like everyone had a really good time.
There was some pretty fast iron there, even the spectators enjoyed watching the mowers run a lot more then the karts because there was more action I was told. I was talking to some karters that said they couldn't believe there wasn't any cautions and how quickly we ran through the races. They said with the karts there is a caution every second lap it seemed.
The pit stop was the coolest thing ever, definately have to do that again.
 Not sure how I got the number one spot for the weekend at half throttle with one cylinder kicking in and out but I'll take it, that was a little disapointing for me but we still managed to have a good time. It was just a great atmosphere there. Also thanks to Mr. Mowitall for making the trip down to support the cause as well.

Really the only thing would be try and advertise in the area more. There's nothing better than racing in front of a HUGE crowd....oh tell the Crouch Mowersports people they cant win EVERY class they enter....LOL JK. Another thing that will help is see if we can get enough sponsors to pay for part of the insurance.....most of the racers around here are spoiled. STA-BIL or Amsoil pays it every time and I feel the $40 entry fee stopped a lot of racers from coming. Don't get me wrong I do understand it costs money to race BUT around here we aren't used to having to pay anything or if we do its like $5 at the most. Anyways, weekend was good track was sweet.

Today you have to look at fees ex me n Jake 40 ea that's 80 total plus 10 per extra mower per day I generally bring 3 or moe we go wit 3 that's another 60 for the weekend 140 total entry fee plus gettin there And everything else. We charged last year at the AAMC an attendance was way down. It's something to think about. With those fees I would only bring one machine ea. Just sayin

I think that right there was alot of it...And add what George said. I really think that was the problem...yes  I do realize racing costs money and the major sponsors of the two National bodies have it covered but regardless, it hurts attendance!  Another thing to look at...we are late in the season, actually it was 3 weeks from USLMRA finals. So some of the local fast guys didnt even come out. Ya dont want to risk breaking your motor or something too expensive that close to finals! ARMA also had a points race that friday night in Maryland. I was going to go there and then to Vestaburg by Saturday morning, but NO WAY I could afford that and the time just wasnt there to let me get from A to B. I heard there was a good turn out at that race though!! So some of the fast guys from the central/northern part of the east coast were busy as well. I realize we cant please everybody, just layin options out to be thought about.  ;)

It cost owner 1500 for crew plus fuel and other stuff on  race day but will try and see mayb we could drop food or something tp put money towards getting it down a few more and bigger sponsers would be better but even at our local track we loost 3 and was talkin to another president said same thing happened to him will work on price and see also we had date set early as we could so as not to interfear with others thats hard to do cause every week end some ones racing somewere but it will not be on Georges anniversery LOL!!!!!

Might look into selling t-shirts, hats, and other stuff like that. A swap meet and charge for space. Some of this could offset some of the costs.

Ok maybe we need to set date up earlier in the yr or latter I dont know tryed best to set it up with every one i could locally but that didnt work!! so will ask Rich\Zach what date works better   i could make it free by having it at ithaca but dont think Ryan and the other outlaw mowers would like 90 ft straights and tighter corners so that prob wont work  and it just not the same caliber of set up as far as crowd that takes time as still the popular thinkin (those who never saw them run)is lawn mower racing who wants to watch a bunch of guy go 10 mph on a track!  And i hope some of local guys would have spread word then self hey im running type thing wife was in stands and said heard lots of very positive coments so know there be more next yr they loved it!

This race attracted many of the biggest names in mower racing, it could become one of the premier events of the sport. Having the event at any facility will gain that facility notoriety and prestige. Maybe you should talk to the track owner about weighing the pro's and con's of having the race at his facility?
Drivers appreciate racing with insurance, we have no problem paying $5 to cover the cost of insurance.
If the race cost him $1500, he would only need to charge $7 for a couple hundred fans to cover those costs.
COncessions should help as well.
Maybe it would be good PR to forego profits for the event, if his tax man is worth his salt I am sure he could write off most costs.
Sponsorships  help greatly.

Just some Ideas for you, but underlying message is "Look for creative answers".  The financing should not be an issue.

Charging the drivers that much will hurt the event.

On the drivers side of the equation:
Drivers talk to your sponsors, let them know you think it would be good to attend the event but need some extra help to cover the costs. It is not unusual for sponsors to add a little extra for a special event.
If you do not have a sponsor, consider the costs an investment, good finishes at events like this or even simply attending them help build your "Racing Resume" that make you more attractive to sponsors.

Events Like the National Racing Series, the All American and The V-Twin Shootout help the sport. They bring it more into the public eye in a positive manner. All of us from the single driver, race teams, race promoters, club Officers, track owners to the Heads of the national Organizations need to work together to make events such as these as successful as they can be.

Rooster good points the 1500 is just what he said was for the crew he has nka insureance so what he payed extra there i dont know for 2 days now he charges 3 per head with family of 4 for 10 witch is as resonable deal im thinkin about racin on Sat next time as it would help those that have to travel not be so hurried and maybe run features with karts also that way could use Sunday as raid date and maybe do some racin sunday for fun or whzat ever but again some real good points Thanks

My idea would be to move the race to a little later in the year.  I am thinking Early-Middle of October, that way you get around the USLMRA finals, maybe the ARMA finals also.  I do not know when ARMA or SOMA have their "finals" but it should be some time close to the beginning of October.  This would leave a gap between the end of one racing year and the beginning of another with the SRUSAA in November.

I think weather could be an issue in the early part of the year especially in Michigan.  Maybe early October would be fall like and not like winter.

I would take the people that attended, and find out how many more would come with them next year,
and see how it could be scheduled out. You have a big haul in September, and one in Novemeber.
If this is going to be an annual event, it is going to have to be spaced several months prior to the
US Finals/US Open date. Competing year to year between these two events is going to reduce numbers
overall. The people local to this event, and Ohio are the folks to fill the classes. You have the Crouch's
and a few other groups that travelled a distance, but those are the exceptions. I know for a fact, that
Rooster schedules his year in advance.... he even plans events and does not schedule races at the
home track, when he has a race to go to. He came to Texas and raced with the LSMRA, and made his
calender way ahead of time.

I would go with the team if it did not conflict and was spread out so that we could afford it.

There is also a good haul early to mid october to the ARMA finals. I think the best time frame for the race is mid season. More so, 4th of july weekend would be awesome. Most folks have a paid day off so they could allow for some travel time as well. Wether or not it conflicts with other schedules, I have no idea other than the west coast races the uslmra put on that weekend.

We need to bring our own volunteers, main flagman, lap counters, timers for qualifying and so on so Dave doesn't have to pay out $1500. I realize that there are still costs with hydro, and fuel for the machinery and so on but we can probably cut that down a lot. We should just be paying for insurance and a few bucks for the track expenses and let Dave make money off of the concessions and souvenirs and spectators. There may be more to it then that, but just some ideas.
Also more sponsorship money coming in will just keep dropping the price of everything, now we kind of have an idea what everything costs. It can only get better from now on.

Michigan is always a crap shoot with weather. I have seen snow early in october and in late april. If you get past october 15 maybe, between the 1st and the 15th, better, end of september better yet! Dave does have the right size track but will he let clubs or other people he DOSEN'T know run and work his track? He doesn't know me from adam up the road, but I was an officer in a motocross club for 10 years helping put on 4 event's a year. We averaged 500 riders a day, but we also had 25 - 40 club members helping. We had to plan dates in dec or jan for that year, can we do that with US, ARMA, and WOO?  The end of september in mich is really nice, we also need a rain date. I didn't see alot of spectors, how about advertising the event outside of or regular people and places. We have to get the word out and outside of other lawnmower racers. We can't keep doing the same thing and expecting differant results! Anyone that watches cars or motorcycles race will enjoy the v-twin shootout! The show went very smooth and moved right along, that keeps people's attention! One thing that is for sure it's all going to be a matter of timing!    [just my 2-cents]

Make sure you don't schedule the same week as USLMRA race in Sparta, lol.

I feel your pain brother! Our club is small enough that if we do a even a 20 mower race we have to count on neighboring clubs to help us out. Every time I even look at a venue I have to coordinate with about 5 other schedules! It can be a headache, but I am sure you will get it done.

Ferris I would not want to be in your shoes about now!  Is your head spinning yet! I think I can speak for the forum and say, You can bounce anything off any of us any time. When you do pick a date I WILL do my best to be their, just let me know!

Yes Ferris you did talk to me about what time of year would work out for our group so you could plan on a free week for this avent. But you know that was a year ago and life changes daily for everyone and we couldn't make it but you have said it for the second time that "you wanted it earlier in year but because of other group would work better later in year and then never showed up" so what if we didn't show up you still had racing without us! You haven't said anything about George or Rooster not showing up that change the weekend of racing! Yes i am sorry we couldn't make it but i have heard from you time and time again that you would come race with us but life changed your plans! So maybe next year we can come but as of this year life changed our plans! Thank You

No prob.  at all that you couldnt make it ill never twist anyones arm to come. Or pay for them to come we had a heck of a good time and I think most of the people will b there next year if a class a race track and setup along with hanging out with fellow racers and running with some of the fastest mowers around than does get you ecited it yr choice to choose not to attend i talked to a lot of other group presidents 2 when setting date besides you so relax wasnt even talking bout you! I still think $ main issue and will work on it I know it cant b free but will try and get it down some I also heard were in points race tracks to big,will tell you with the us and arma race dates its nearly imposible to find weekend thats free tahn throw in the local   clubs its no fun but know i can never please everyone and will always b excuses,I did best I could this year!

Ferris You did a great job. You plan the weekend and we will plan on being there. If it does fall on one of our race dates it's easier for us to change a local date than for you to change an event like this. Keep up the good work and don't get discouraged  it will all work out in the end.
