After much thought and consideration, I have decided that the amount of $$$ I spend doing trackdays (plus all the $$$ for tires, maint., etc.) is just too much. So, I am considering racing on some dirt next season with the STORM series.

http://www.storm-racing.org/page/page/7139965.htm

There is an annual $25 membership fee, a one time purchase of a transponder for timing purposes for $20, and then there is a race fee of $45 per race, which is a pretty good price considering it covers Saturday practice and the Sunday race as well. So, I could do these races once a month and probably come out WAY cheaper than doing 10-15 trackdays per season.

2010 STORM Series events:

January 16-17 Consolidated Ranch (Near La Grange)
February 20-21 Brunesmill (Just North of Columbus)
March 20-21 Skull Creek (Just South of Columbus)
April 17-18 Centerville (Right outside Centerville)
May 22-23 Middleton (Near Centerville)
June - July Summer Break and a non series event will be held date and location to be announced
August 21-22 Cowboy Badlands (Beaumont Area)
September 18-19 Lake Sam Rayburn (Near San Augustine)
October 16-17 Outlaw Trax (Huntsville/Conroe Area)
November 20-21 TO BE ANNOUNCED
December 4-5 Consolidated Ranch (Near La Grange)



Whatcha think? Will it be cheaper than td's? More fun? Will my KX250 handle the abuse if I keep up the maintenance?

The one thing I like the most is that you aren't obligated to do every race and standings don't matter much to me. I have 3 or 4 buds running this series next season and I'm SO tempted to join.
COOL !!!! Storm is very well put together and all the races arent that far away either. Pretty cheap compared to paying $100 for a track day. See you around at the races !

2700 obo for the track bike, I'll be making a thread in the coming days. remember..cash talks, BS walks.
I have a 1997 KDX 220R 2 stroke and it can hold its on. You'll have an advantage out there with a smoker and as for top end jobs go. They are really easy to do and cheap. If you pay someone then your going to pay for the labor. Your kx will do great out there .

Sounds good! I'm assuming you run with this series? I'm told to expect a HUGE difference in skill level out there...I hope I don't get run over in the process of trying to figure out where I belong.

Oh ya ! its awsome ! You'll do fine trust me. Lots of 2 strokes out there and everyone is really cool. It'll be my first full season this year too . It is a bit scary at first cause your all piled together and your trying to get your bike started while people are zooming by you . Thats one tip I can give you , know your bike and be able to kick it on in one kick or two at most. I take a stool out there with me . Also have extra tubes and a set of tires out there and tire changing tools. Its pretty rough out there but nothing to get all crazy about. I go pretty slow compared to alot of the other guys but I do my best to hang on. Just m,ake sure to keep an eye out for the "A Class " . Those guys rip right pass you. If you have trail experince then you'll get moved up in no time. i have a friend thats been riding Storm for a long time and has been doing hair scambles for decades. if your looking for some trails let me know . Buddy has trails in his hood that are actually made for this kind of stuff.
