Fall riding at The Wick 338, doesn't get much better than that! Get your bike ready and tell your friends to get their bikes ready, Southwick always draws a big crowd of riders and spectators, this should be a really big race!
One day riders are always welcome!
There will be classes for all riders from 65cc's to 60+ Vets
100%+ Pro/A Rider cash purse plus lots of contingency money up for grabs.
Spectators are welcome, Southwick has a lots of level pit area with plenty of room for RVs, a great snack bar and multiple viewing locations accessible to all ticket holders where you can see lots of the track and a track layout that's the favorite of many racers.
Gates open from 5:00-10:00 PM on Saturday and 6:30 AM on Sunday
Admission $15. per person
No Saturday Open practice for this weekend
Sign up Sunday 7:00 AM until 9:00 AM
Racing starts after practice
Effective immediately per order of The Wick 338's insurance company, any minor riding an open practice, taking a motocross class or racing at The Wick 338 must have the Minor Release signed and notarized by both parents! We know this is a huge inconvenience and we wish we didn't have to enforce it but our hands are tied, we have no choice.
If both parents are present at the track they may sign the form in the presence of a track official who will have to check IDs.
If one parent will not be able to make it to the track they must sign and have the form notarized and then the other parent can bring it with them to the track where they can sign it in front of a track official who will have to check an ID.
There is a box to initial for sole guardians.
When filling out the Minor Release enter a date range of March 27 until December 5th to be covered for the year. All parents who bring a release dated that way will be given a card stating that they have a release on file and will not have to bring a new one at every event.
We are sorry to have to do this and we thank you so much for your cooperation.
This DOES NOT eliminate the need for at least one of the parents or guardians to be present at sign up for the minor.
If your child will be attending and riding at an open practice, a motocross school or racing at The Wick 338 both parents must sign and have notarized the Guardian Form appointing a legal (over 18) guardian for the day.
All riders are welcome, one day NESC cards are available and we will have transponders for rent. The fee is $10. per day (we have bike clips for sale at $10.) a $280 refundable deposit is required either cash or a credit card and a driver's license. NESC transponder rentals are cash only (you can leave your credit card as the security deposit) Please note that only full NESC members earn championship points.

PP-1 Promotional points are accumulated per rider, not per class and they are accumulated from year to year.
A promotion to the next classification is given at the conclusion of a series if the rider has earned the proper number of points and is age eligible.
Riders moving up a class will start the class with the number of points earned to advance.
The only exception is for riders advancing two classifications. i.e. C to A, Youth C to Youth A. These riders will have their points reset to the lowest point of advancement to the next classification.
Ex: A C rider with over 120 points will be reset to a B rider with 40 points, Youth C with over 65 points will be reset to 40 points as a Youth B rider. In no case will a rider move up two classes at the end of a series.
Here's the 2023 race schedule
The Open classes will now be called the Open C, Open B and Open A classes so that they will follow the same naming convention as all the other classes.
Open Novice will now be Open C
Open Amateur will now be Open B
Open Expert will now be Open A
Due to the rising cost of just about everything involved in running a race track the entry fees will be $40. for the first and second classes and $20. for each additional class.
New youth members need to give the NESC the notarized short legal release before you can earn championship points, without this release on file your membership is not finalized.

Each of the NESC Championship series are designed to reward rider's accomplishments and their support of the NESC points paying events.
At the end of the year a Championship awards program is run to recognize the top riders in each championship class for each series that earn championship points. Riders must do at least 75% of the races in a series in order to qualify for awards.
For the 2022 fall series all of the adult class riders need to do 8 races
In the 65cc, 85cc and Supermini riders need to do 7 races
50cc riders will need to have raced in 5 races.
For most of the classes (except for the 50cc 6 out of 7, 65cc, 85cc and supermini 9 out of 10) your best 11 out of 12 races will count in the championship points standings.
If you completely miss one day then you accumulate “0” points for that day and “0” are subtracted from your final total.
If you miss no race days, then your lowest score is subtracted from your final total.
If you are disqualified from a class for any reason (whether it is for one moto or both motos), then the total score for that class on that day will not be allowed to be counted as a throwaway day.
Please bring your NESC card, your ID and your insurance card with you to sign-up. We hate to be requiring all this but the insurance companies are getting stricter and stricter with their rules, sorry for the hassle and thank you for understanding and helping out.
We are happy to announce that the NESC has been included in the 2022 Parts Unlimited Contingency program once again.
Rider will need to fill out one form for the spring and one for the fall in order to be eligible for the program.
