NEW UTV Riding/Racing in Indiana/Illinois/Michigan

Would there be an interest in starting a UTV motocross racing series in northern Indiana, northern Illinois, and southern Michigan? I am new to rzr's but I have raced ATVs for the past 15 years. I contacted some of the local motocross tracks and multiple racing series that I have been racing on my ATV to see if they would be open to the idea of having UTV racing classes as well for 2014. The responses I have been receiving are that the track owners are open to the idea but they do not think the turnout will be very good. Currently I have one track that will now allow UTVs on their motocross track at open rides, only Monday-Friday until the turnout increases BUT we have to start somewhere!

Any thoughts on all of this???

It is located in Medaryville, IN. I am going to another mx track tomorrow at 3pm in Joliet, IL for a trial of UTVs at their track if anyone is interested!

Re: NEW UTV Riding/Racing in Indiana/Illinois/Michigan

It went well! I talked to the track owner and he said he would want to host a couple races at his track next year. He also said he would open the track up again this winter if enough UTVs would show up for an open ride.
