• REMINDER - For the race that was postponed on May 10th, we have rescheduled for Friday, May 24th. This is an open date
where we did not have a scheduled race originally. Per USA BMX rules we
cannot alter the moto sheets therefore no additional riders can sign up
and no riders can be removed. We appreciate your cooperation with this!
Since riders have already signed up and
paid for this race, the motos will already be posted and we will only
need to CHECK IN riders from 5:30 to 7 pm. We will begin the race as
soon as possible after 7 pm and proceed with the 2-moto transfer system
as originally set for this race. Motos for this race are posted online.
does NOT affect any other races. Please use the "Contact Us" link
on lefthand side of the website to communicate any questions. Thank
• Our 2019 Race For Life is almost here. There's still time left to collect donations!! This year's double-point race
will be held on Saturday, May 25th. Just like in past years, we'll be
raffling off several prizes that day including a complete BMX bicycle donated by Balise Auto!!
Additionally, the top individual fundraiser will receive free single
points racing for one class at Whip City BMX for the rest of 2019
can track donations with this sheet: http://www.whipcitybmx.com/RFL_donation_sheet_2018.pdf.
Remember that all donations must be presented in person at this event
in order to be eligible for potential prizes. You can however continue
fundraising online all summer directly through USA BMX.
this is one of now three events each year at Whip City BMX where you
can race without a USA BMX membership! All that's required is the
minimum $20 donation, proper attire and a working bicycle. A great
opportunity to contribute to a very worthy cause, and you might find
that you love BMX racing as much as the rest of us do!!!!

• Important reminder
about plate numbers: A rider’s current earned or sanction issued
number must appear on that rider’s number plate during all
competition. Examples of earned numbers include district,
state, national age group, national, gold cup, race of champions, pro
numbers, etc. – these numbers change every year and represent each
rider’s hard work at earning their ranking. On the other
hand, your sanction issued number is generally the last three digits of
your serial number. (See pages 17-18 of the USA BMX
rulebook for additional details). If you are not
running your sanction issued number, you need to update your plate each
year with an earned number - running an outdated earned number is not
permissible. We will be enforcing this rule at all Whip City
events. If you need to update your plate, please do so before
your next event; plates and numbers are commonly available from our
local on site bike shop vendor on Friday evenings.
Another alternative is to attach a “pie plate” to your bike
with written numbers if you are not able to update your plate before
the next race. If you would like to check your current
district ranking, please
visit the USA BMX website.
• It is very important to bring the paper
receipt you received for your new or renewed license
until you receive your permanent card - the
combination of the 8 digit (all numeric) serial number AS WELL AS your
4 digit validation code is especially important when you travel to
other tracks to race. You will need to present this receipt
at any USA BMX track to register. TIP: Take a copy of your paper
receipt and put it with your race equipment, or in all of your vehicle
consoles, etc. Be creative to make sure that you are never without it!
