Hurley Area Chamber of Commerce/White Thunder Riders Terra-X/Vintage 500 Enduro, Saturday, Feb 26th, Iron County (WI) Fairgrounds in Saxon, WI:
It is impressive the work the White Thunder Riders has been doing in building this Terra-X Course SINCE DECEMBER!   It truly is an amazing course.  Set up as a Cross Country/Snow Cross course but done on a 3/4 mile enclosed course.  This is the PERFECT course for Trailriders and even the 2 PRO Classes.    It is also an excellent course for the 30 minute, non-stop Vintage 500 Enduro!
The Terra-X and Vintage 500 Enduro Registration form is attached.  Please fill that out and with the entry fee’s, send it in too:  MASTERS, % Terra-X, 610 Greenland Rd., Ontonagon, MI 49953.  This has to be received by Thursday, Feb 24th.  Final Registration will run from 8 to 9:30 am CT on Saturday Morning, Feb 26th at the track.  NO REGISTRATION after 9:30 am on Feb 26th.
The order of the day will be determined by the number of entry’s in the classes.  The classes with the most entry’s will run 1st.  No matter what, around Noon the 120’s and 250’s will run, when the class that was running is completed.
Each driver will run against the clock, all by themselves on the track.  The fastest 3 times in each class qualify for the Finals later in the day, BEFORE the Vintage 500 Enduro runs.  The 3rd Fastest time takes on the 2nd fastest time in the Semi-Finals.  The winner of the Semi-Final takes on the Fastest time in the Final.  The number of laps in the Semi’s and Finals will be determined before all the Semi’s run.  The order of the Semi’s will be Small to Big with the 2 Pro Classes running last.  Awards to the Top 2 in Terra-X, other then Pro Stock Open and TOP DOG.
At the Conclusion of the Terra-X, we will run the Vintage 500 Enduro.  This is 30 minutes NON-STOP.  The Leader will get the White Flag to know it’s the Final Lap.  Awards to the Top 3 in Vintage 500 Enduro.
Awards Ceremony will be at the Track, 90 minutes after the conclusion of Vintage 500 Enduro.
