Texas Xtreme ORR June 18/19 Event #6 20 minutes outside Houston!

This one is a new property located about 25 minutes outside of the Houston area in Beasley, TX (down the road from Sugar Land) off of 59. I don't have exacts as the flier with directions has not been posted. I think this is going to be a FAST paced race like a flat track (just not oval shaped) since there is little elevation this close to Houston.....from Otis:

We have 510 acres that we will be racing on. The course will be an Old School Grass Track Hare Scramble. Wide open, big and fast. Sweeping corners, tight corners, long straight aways with a few technical sections thrown in for good measure! This is definitely something different for everyone to test their skills on and get some straight up side x side racing! There is a creek that runs through the property in which we will be using a small bit of, but for the most part it is wide open.

We will have concessions, special event on sat, and a movie on sat night complete with popcorn and free soda.

Flier will be up soon.
I hope to make this event, but I'm also having a private party the day before that includes 2 kegs and a bunch of debauchery. We'll see if I get to bed early enough Saturday night. No worries though, I think I got the C class locked up.

Well, race is the weekend and I won't be attending, but I hope some of you take advantage of a course so close to home....plus, it's a flat tracking style course....I'm upset i'm missing it. I'll be racing the same property in July though....I may even make it out to spectate on Sunday morning...suppose to be a good spectator viewing with it being an open style race vs. woods.

From Mr. Otis-

Usually we get in the woods and all you see is trail and trees. Well not this time. Oh and you get prime time eyes on you from the highway on the start and for the first few miles of the course.

Ice is only 99 cents at the store on the corner.

Sounds like fun. I've really been itching to do one of these events but it doesn't look to be in the cards anytime soon. I destroyed my boots last weekend and my helmet has no vents. It was a little warm.

HE DID...It's in 3 parts....lots of getting slideways and braking deep into the corners. I've noticed among my class, my experience on the track really helps with this...People are so cautious about going deep into a corner on the brakes in dirt. I'm making this property in July, I know it's bound to be a hoot going bar to bar as you go from one corner to another...seeing who is in front/behind you is also pretty cool.

This property is bound to make you feel fast, even if you're not.

So you are not going, Cliff?

Last I talked with James, you and he were making the event. I am probably going to show too.

no. i ran into problems with building the bike back up from wrecking it. instead of paying for race weekend fees, I had to buy parts.

At the end of this wreck/build, my 04 kx250f is now mostly an 05 RMZ250. I haven't determined what color bodywork to run, green, yellow, or black. Maybe all 3.

But for what it is worth, I am learning a lot about suspension.

I had a great time and took a beating. I only did the class E 45 minute race on the short (3 mile) course. I got a deceiving 1st place (James beat me but, he chose not to get scored).

James did the D class open 1 hr. race on the long (16 miles) course and got a second place.

Hopefully there will be more races near Houston. I will ride the D class next time, as there will be a next time for sure.

July race will be there again according to BDuck.

Congrats! Glad you guys had a great time. See you at the next one. If you want to ride in between then and now, I should have one of my twin bikes done and running by the end of the week. I'm mostly trying to figure out suspension valving, and the differences between my EBR, JM and stock forks.

I'm so glad you guys made it out to an event, but sorry I wasn't there for this one (it's the first I've missed in the last 13 months or so). I know the course this month (and July) is not a typical Xtreme Course, but with the xtreme heat Otis was trying to keep the race local to our area and to keep it to a fast flowing course (not to mention the lack of terrain in Houston). In the future months we'll be racing places like Cowboy Badlands (Beaumont), Lake Sam Rayburn (this one is about 2.5 hours away, but it's a pvt. property and tons of elevation), Brunesmill (Columbus area), and Middleton (2 hours N of Houston).

I hope to see you guys at future events. Thanks for giving the series a shot. I hope it was a pleasurable experience for you guys.

Danny

I really like the course, a bit different than usual, and actually a bit harder than I thought it would be based on the video. And I was really enjoying the WFO sections just to cool down.

i was in love for the 3 mile 45 minute practice and race, thought there were a few complainers about me and my speed (being faster, but they were all kids) I spoke to Otis about the "sandbagging" issue and the conclusion that we came up with was for me not to get scored and not take points away from the others so i just ran the race for fun. Otis' son took a good spill, i rode by him, looked at him b/c he was just laying there, when i seen the blood on his neck i quickly locked the brakes and turned around to assist, he had a gash under his chin, i told him to lay still and i went for help and then back to the race after checking on him again.

the 3 mile was easy as cheese and i was in love.

i missed the 16 mile course practice so i went into the race blind, good thing too b/c had i done practice i probably would not have ran the race!!

It was very difficult (for me) i'm used to a smooth flat surface, i planned to run the first lap to follow, to sort out the course and then push on for the 2nd lap, well that plan got busted about a mile in. The guy in front of me on a vintage bike (i was currently in last) was blowing dirt and cow all over me, i was faster so i went around and pushed on the catch up with the others, little did i know, these guys are fast as , i pushed for maybe 20 minutes and could never catch up, they were gone, i had spent all my energy, i was getting dehydrated ( had my camel back on) i couldn't breathe, so i had pulled over under a shade tree ( approx. 10 mins.) i had a 3 minute lead over the last guy but i couldn't go yet and had to wait.

Once i got back up and running, i pushed for a few minutes and started getting sick again, not wanting to quit the race, i just cruised around the rest of the course in agony, hoping for the end that never came.

the course was extremely rough, rugid and difficult to navigate.

Being my very first time i didn't know what to expect but, i'll be back for some more action and hopefully it will be a little different terrain, this is an endurance race, not a sprint race, you can't win in the first 20 minutes of a race that could last the better part of 2 hours.

I did my lap in just under 58 minutes, Otis said you have 2 minutes, go out for another lap!! NO WAY, had i gone out again, someone would have had to come and get me b/c i would not have made it back on my own.

yes i got a second place "in class" but i was surely a last place finisher, not a quitter tho.

Dead engine start, wait for the 10 second warning, flag drops.... out for the next hour straight (I highly recommend pacing yourself)!
that dude on the Vintage was probably Robert Marsh....former WERA roadracing champ. He ain't no punk.
