Weekend Race Report - Loretta Lynn Qualifier and PVR Vintage HS

Motorcycle racers are one tough bunch as this weekend would turn out to prove. Mother nature took temps back down into the low 30's here in the great state of Pennsylvania but she couldn't deter the faithful from doing the things they love to do. I've heard that only champions will do things that others aren't willing too ...

Please watch the video below then scroll to the bottom to link to more images and weekend race results.

The amateur racers were on a mission this weekend pushing the cold temperatures out of their heads while chasing the next phase of qualification.

Sunday took us to Rocket Raceway for Round #1 of the Potomac Vintage Riders 2018 Harescramble racing season. This series that kicked off a few short years ago with just 19 riders at their first event has grown to see over 100 riders come out to most rounds.

This past weekends event, despite the threat of snow and frigid temperatures saw 129 entries on the day. Rocket Raceway is always a favorite on the circuit and usually gets a good turnout with this group.

The only requirement is that you like to have fun and you have a dirt bike built before 1995. They run two races on a typical race day offering novice classes in the morning with experts running in the afternoons. Select events even offer a youth event as a way to get the younger riders exposed to the sport.


Riders head towards the start of the morning race with Brain Grove (119x) 
taking the overall on the day riding a Honda Elsinore.

This event saw a first for this group who is billed as the Potomac Vintage Riders, racing under the AHRMA banner. They decided to bring some new into the theory of racing old bikes and provided electronic Transponder Scoring to the series. They still use a paper back up but the electronic scoring keeps things moving and helps keep the points straight for the end of year championships.

The only thing you need to do to qualify is attend 6 out of 10 races and be an AHRMA member (American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association) to the end of the year.


Round #1 saw 129 entries on the day


Check out their next round coming up at Irish Valley in Paxinos, Pa.
