Blountville, Tenn. The 2011 THOR MEGA Series presented by DUNLOP gets underway March 12-13 at Muddy Creek Raceway with the traditional DUNLOP Day opener. This is always one of the largest events of the year with riders making the trip to this event from most all states north of the Mason Dixon Line since the tracks up north don’t open until later in the year.
The opening DUNLOP Tire event rewards all class champions with DUNLOP tires in addition to factory contingency, awards, and purse. Saturday is a Test & Tune practice day 9:30am til 3:30pm then early signup til 5:30. Sunday practice starts at 8:00am with racing to getting started at 9:30.
YAMAHA, KAWASAKI, KTM, SUZUKI, HUSQVARNA, and HONDA have posted factory contingency for the series for 2011. This contingency money rewards the riders for their performance and gives them help in paying for maintenance on their bikes as well as the costs of racing. With the tough economic conditions we are suffering through now, this contingency money is a breath of fresh air for the riders who earn a portion of it.
Last year 250 PRO Mega Series champion Adam Britt has been riding indoors this winter to stay in condition for his run to defend his championship. Mega Series regular Kevin Walker has new bikes and has been training anxiously for the outdoor season.
This event will also be paying points for the Parts Unlimited Ultra Series which has events in NC, SC, VA, & TN.
