SMUSA Vet National Hosts NASMOTO's Queen Mary Qualifying Round
NASMOTO - Where Amateurs Race SuperMoto before Turning Professional

The sixth NASMOTO regional qualifier is slated for Reno-Fernley Raceway in Fernley, NV in conjunction with the SMUSA Vet National on August 18th and 19th and will include a full slate of racing including motorcycle, ATVs and the inaugural Vet Class National Championship.

"We are excited to partner with Supermoto USA and combine our qualifier with the NOR-CAL Championship Series," stated Ted Baker, NASMOTO VP. "There organization is the strongest and largest attended in the country. It offers fans a chance to see some of the SuperMoto stars of tomorrow developing their skills today."

Racers that are fan favorites include youngster Joey Pascarella and a new challenger Michael Corbino. At the beginning of the year Corbino got a win in the 250 class and Pascarella is looking to settle the score in Reno. Californians, Casey Yarrow and Vincent Gusande Jr., are both lightening quick and are making a name for themselves in the 450 class. In the last race at Altamont Raceway Guisande dominated the main event by taking the hole shot and never looking back. Yarrow is planning to change his fortune in Reno and fans can expect a show at the front of the field.

This is a big weekend with team races kicking the weekend off on Friday, August 17th with NASMOTO and SMUSA Vet National Championship races following on Saturday and Sunday. The racing card includes one of the strongest mini programs for both adult and kids with five classes slated for minis and five slated for the vets.

Highlighting this exciting racing program is the one-off National Championship for the over 35 racers, which provide bragging rights for the entire year. "The Veteran Class is the largest growing SuperMoto segment with significant number of racers coming back into racing after a 10 year or more absence,? said Brok McAllister . ?We are also seeing guys come in from Motocross and Road Racing because the racing is tight, fun and easier on the body."

The Reno-Fernley Raceway is one of the nation's most exciting venues with a elevation changes and smooth as glass racing surface, a radical serpentine uphill section that requires maximum power and savvy motorcycle handling skills and a rumored two dirt sections with table tops, whoops and banked turns. The 1.5 mile track is the longest on the circuit and will test the mettle of all the racers.
