You do realize if any hardware crosses the Mississippi River to Illionios from this race we're just gonna come over there on August 16th & 17th and take it away from you in front of your home town fans don't you?

Looking forward to it, should be a good time (both weekends!)

This will be a great race event weekend. We are looking forward to this with great anticipation. A bunch of our locals have built some new FXS and FXT machines and you know they will be fast especially on that fast black dirt. We hope you can make plans to attend this and we look forward to seeing our old friends and make some new ones too!

Looking to get some practice in at this track?    There is a race this Saturday at 6:30.   So the conditions will be similar to the Saturday race.   

This race has been the largest USLMRA national race the last 2 years.  I don't expect anything different this year.   The track is amazing.    Black Iowa dirt.  Long straights and tight corners.   1 and 2 is different than 3 and 4.   If the conditions are good the entire track can be raced on, not just 1 grove.   There are lights on the front and back stretch so if the is a caution or a red you know!

I will be camping at the track, so I will be there the entire weekend.   


I better get to working on some mowers...........................

The time is getting closer for the best mower racers in the country to show what they've got . We have the facility ready and we are eager for all our friends from across the country to come back to Carlisle , Iowa and River Bottom Raceway  . This is one of the best tracks and surfaces in the country and the staff is second to none. We have plenty of room in the pits for camping and there will be lots of activities after Saturdays race with the band P.O.W playing in the pits. We have lots of local restaurants and eateries for you also. Come and join the fun!

I'm waiting on the official word on the times.   

Last year I think we started racing around 3 on Saturday.   Noon on Sunday. 

I think they are working on securing lights for Saturday.  It might be a night race.
