Keep your eyes open leaving the tracks

Southwick police were given a tip by someone leaving the track on Sunday that they thought they're being followed by a black Dodge Magnum Station Wagon, with dark tinted windows and chrome moldings. Southwick police later observed a black Dodge Magnum station wagon, with dark tinted windows and chrome moldings a short time later and were able to identify it. The vehicle then left the area. Keep an eye out of who's traveling behind you and take extra storing your bikes at home... Racers really need to start taking extra precautions.

Get your info into the system!

Help save us some time on race day by submitting your information using this super easy on-line form.
You'll still need to print, sign and have notarized this short wavier and provide payment for your membership in person, at the track.

NESC rule and class changes for 2018

The NESC board of directors has made a few rule changes for the '18 season.

New classes added for Vets

A 60+ Open Vet class has been added since there are so many old motocrossers in New England who still race, the class will be run in the same moto as the 45+ class with separate gate drops. Tell your dad and grandfather to dust off their old bikes and come racing with you.

Also a 25+ ABC Vet class was added after numerous requests from riders who weren't quite old enough to run the 30+ classes, this will be a great class for guys who have to get up and go to work on Monday morning. The slot in the race order for this one is TBD but it should be a pretty popular addition.

Freezing no longer needed

The freezing rule has been eliminated for '18, now if a rider starts a series as a novice or amateur he or she will be able to finish that series even after acquiring the number of promotional points to advance to the next class. Promotions will occur at the start of the next series or a rider may elect to promote at any time once they have enough points. This will allow riders to come and just race without having to worry about going too fast and pointing out before the freeze date.

Easier to qualify for year end awards in 2018

The amount of races needed to qualify for year end awards (jackets, plaques etc) has been rolled back to 50% for 2018. Next year if a series has 14 races in it racers will only need to do 7 races to earn awards if they make their classes top ten. This is to encourage riders who might have only raced at their home tracks as one day riders to join the NESC and travel to a few more tracks.

NESC family deal days

The 2018 renewal/new rider form is now posted here (fill in the form on your computer and then print it out at home before mailing it in), families with more than one rider can save big by joining today. One rider is 75. and each additional rider is only 50. until 1/31/18. The price to sign-up at a track is 100. so families with 2 or three riders can save 75. to 125.

NESC jackets available to order

Use the menu below to order additional NESC jackets, just like the ones the riders will be getting at the awards banquet. The next order deadline is Jan 31st, if we get at least a half a dozen orders we'll make a run other wise we'll have to wait a month.
While jackets are available to order, year end plaques and awards are not, those are produced only for the riders who made it to the required number of events and sent in the banquet form.
The transaction will be handled by Buckley Photos.

Mylaps transponder update

Mylaps has finally given riders some updates and now they have a “fix” for the older version X2’s that would not connect/charge. The NESC has a few of these “fix” packs available at sign-up. Newer versions will not have the issue. Also there are instructions on how to tell if the X2’s are activated and how much time they have left.
You can read more here

Transponders

Remind everyone to charge their Flex and Classic transponders for at least 12 hours before race day. Newer X2’s require only 4 hours to charge.

If they are blinking fast red then they need to buy more time directly from Mylaps; their subscriptions are expired or for the new X2 units, they need to be activated before use.

Expired Flex units: You must purchase more time on Mylaps.com and then connect the transponder through your computer to the Flex Manager program on the Mylaps website and activate them.

For fast blinking X2 units they must be activated directly from the Mylaps website, by logging on to the rider’s Mylaps account.

Also it is very important to understand that the parental consent form listed is for parents that are sending their minors to race events where they will not be present. They must name the person acting as guardian for the day, it must be notarized and we need a new form for every event. We have no blanket minor releases at NESC.

 

Did you know...

Did you know that the NESC is a non-profit corporation? The NESC runs off only the funds collected from membership fees (either full year or one day) and the transponder rental fees. The NESC does not make money from the race entries and gate fees at the races.
Did you know that one dollar from every entry goes into the Tom Timonen Fund that is in place to help riders injured in NESC races?

 

The NESC Scholarship program.

This fund awards $2,000.00 annually to college students meeting NESC requirements.

Eligibility requirements: Must be a NESC member for at least two years in good standing and a full time student at a fully accredited college, university, or technical school. Rider must have attended at least 10 NESC races in the current year.

Application process:

Compose a cover letter to NESC requesting consideration for the NESC Scholarship program; naming the college/course of study you plan on attending.

A copy of your final grades from the most recent term.

A letter from your college registrar’s office confirming acceptance to the school.

Please send the above requirements by November 1st; we will make the decisions for awards just prior to the annual banquet.

Deadline to apply is November 1st of the current racing year.

Huge points fund for the Pro/Expert classes

Last year $25,000.00 was paid out at the Awards banquet to the Expert and Pro riders in the top 15 and this year with bigger turn outs it could be even more.

 

100% plus payback ten spots in the 250 & 450 expert/pro motos

Not 3, not 5, but all the way back to tenth place*! No New England series pays out what the NESC races pay out. *Riders must place in the top ten of a moto (combined expert and pro to win cash). Expert class riders are also eligible for trophies in their class.

 

Address changed?

If you have changed your address this year, please notify the NESC by email ASAP.
