Practicing during the off season can be a great way to continue progressing and getting things dialed in. Seat time is essential to perfecting your craft, and hours at the track can be fun and relaxing if you can meet up with a few of your good friends. This is also a great time to try to set up your quad or get back into the rhythm following breakage of you or your machine. Unfortunately, finding a place to ride can be difficult as some tracks close up for the season. Luckily, for riders in the North West, Pit Traffic has you covered.

Darci Hansen takes a minute to clarify and update the information on the Joe Byrd school and JFred benefit racing at Iron Mine:
- Gates Open Wed Night, 5pm
- School Starts Thurs 10am (Joe will run you until 5-6pm)
- School Ends Friday (between 5-6pm)
I wanted to take just a moment to clear up the possible confusion regarding the Joe Byrd School.Please know that when dates were being tossed around, we were looking for the optimum time to provide this opportunity… the biggest request was to wait until most of the racing seasons were over. Thus, the final date we selected.
When we selected that date, I thought it would be a brilliant (to be determined) idea to bring to fruition a combination style race
We have had the pleasure of interviewing both Garrin and Levi and we’ve spent some time racing with Garrin as well. These two work hard on and off the quad and got this sweet spot …

Colt Brinkerhoff has announced a change in dates for this event: I know it’s been hell trying to get this thing organized and we’re sorry for that. That date has been changed for the 3rd …
Gifted Productions has been hard at work, organizing more sessions (including a possible quad race at Hangtown – more details later as they become available), getting riders’ some track time in the Nor-Cal area as well as filming it and editing it. The latest vid is a nod to the ladies in the area who put in the laps too. No fist-pump-to-near-death here. Just some solid riders burning laps. Check it out.
Take a quick 30 seconds and name the top 5 sponsors of the series you run. Actually, just name any 5. Could you do it without cheating? Ok. Now of all the series sponsors , from which have you purchased a product? Any? Here’s where there is a problem. Riders are not supporting the companies supporting their series. And yes, I’m looking at you ATV racers.
“Well I pay gate and race fees,” is ringing out right now in some of your heads, justifying your position. “Racing is expensive enough already,” and of course it is. But, for example, when a goggle company sponsors your series and you aren’t under contract with another company, why wouldn’t you buy their goggles? “I don’t like the fit,” “they are too expensive,” “I don’t need new goggles right now.” Those are all legitimate reasons, but are you going to say that for EVERY SERIES SPONSOR? And the fact they are expensive is irrelevant. Save $5 on a competing company that isn’t supporting your chosen race series, and what incentive does any company have to support what you want to do?
