Fantasy Moto News, 6/21/07
This weeks events:
Saturday, June 23 – The Ultimate ATV
Experience – Mud Bogs, Motocross, and Dirt Drags
at Wittenberg Offroad Raceway.
Saturday, June 23 – Northern Cup Motocross
Series – Round one of double-header weekend at
Pine Ridge Raceway.
Sunday, June 24 - Northern Cup Motocross
Series – Round two of double-header weekend at
Wittenberg Offroad Raceway.
The Wittenberg Offroad Raceway has been
transformed into an ATV playground for
Saturday’s event. There is one spot with a
perfect view of the Mud Bogs, Dirt Drags and
Motocross track. The fact that all three events
take place simultaneously and you don’t even
have to turn your head to see any of them will
definitely make this the spectator “hotspot.”
Add to the fact that the “Muddy 13 Party Wagon”
will keep you entertained between bogs and
Fantasy Moto is putting up $100 for the infamous
Muddy 13 Dash for Cash. Oh yeah, the Dash for
Cash is an open class – no trucks, no bikes, no
ATVs – open to anyone who wants to race through
the bog on foot!
We are expecting some hyper motivated, arm
stretching, nitrous fed rockets over on the
MaxPower/RPMs drag strip as well – 0-80 mph in
300 feet! Get on, sit down, shut up and hang on!
These boys and girls are crazy. If you’re
interested in drag racing there is a sight you
absolutely have to check out if you’re from the
www.atvhpjunkies.com - some serious power
lurking on that site.
There is really not much to say about quad
motocross racers – they’re not right, plain and
simple – and we mean that in a good way. Anyone
that can jump an ATV 100 feet through the air
gets an ada boy from us. No thanks, but they
sure are fun to watch. Expect to see several #1
Nationally ranked racers on the starting line
this weekend as “Factory Sam Rowe” and Cody
Janssen bring their talent back to Wisconsin on
an off weekend from the hectic WPSA National
Schedule. Toss in Cory Gauthier and Eddie
Degeneffe and we are going to have an all out
war in the A classes on Saturday. Hopefully
we’ll also get to see current National #1 Joe
Havel on the line?!
This marks the first time this season that
all three disciplines perform at the same venue
on the same day. If you’re an ATV enthusiast –
Wittenberg is the place to be on Saturday!
Did we forget to mention that the “Lucas Oil
Ultimate ATV Experience” at the Famous Crandon
International Raceway is just around the corner
as well – July 28th and 29th? Did we also forget
to mention that the event purse for that weekend
is approaching an estimated $10,000? That is not
a typo folks, ten thousand dollars = 100
Benjamin Franklins! If it isn’t already on your
calendar, get up right now and stick a posty to
the refrigerator! July 28-29, 2007 – Crandon, WI
– trail riding, obstacle course, Cross Country,
TT, Motocross, Mud Bogs, Dirt Drags, new model
test area and sooo much more!
Ok, ok – the bike guys are sick of hearing
about quads, we know, we know. The Northern Cup
Motocross Series rounds 3 and 4 are taking place
at Pine Ridge Raceway on Saturday and Wittenberg
on Sunday. Don’t forget to bring an extra item
or two to be thrown towards the fundraiser for
Nathan LaPorte at Ridge on Saturday. Nathan was
injured during the LL Qualifier back in May at
Pine Ridge and the family is facing some hefty
FREE Answer Gear, Engine Ice, Scott USA
merchandise and $100 in cash to some lucky folks
making the trip from Pine Ridge to Wittenberg.
All you have to do to enter is keep your
wristband/pit pass from Pine Ridge on Saturday
and turn it in at the “Rider Supply” trailer for
a free entry into the drawing! It’s free; make
sure you take advantage of it.

Good luck and see you either Saturday or
