Sundown “Spring Showdown” Race 2021

March 6, 2021 @ 7:00 am March 7, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

The first ever Sundown “Spring Showdown” Race will take place on March 6th and 7th, 2021. This is an open invitation race and is open to any racer ages 5-19 years old. You do not need to have a “team or race hill affiliation”. All racers will compete in the U-class age brackets by gender (U8, U10, U12, U14, U16, U18, U20). U-class is “U – Under” that particular age. U8 = 7-yrs old and under; U10 = 9-yrs, 8-yrs old; U12 = 11-yrs, 10-yrs old; U14 = 13-yrs, 12-yrs old; U16 = 15-yrs, 14-yrs old; U18 = 17-yrs, 16-yrs old; U20 = 19-yrs, 18-yrs old. Age for the U-class will be determined by DOB as of 12-31-2020 (for example if your racer is 12 years old as of 12-31-2020 – they would be in the U14 class). There is no team competition for this event. It is not affiliated with WIJARA or USSA. Entry Cost for this event is $10, (cash or check) paid day of event. Deadline to sign-up is Monday, February 22, 2021. Late entry is $20 (anything past 2/22/2021). SRT racers are covered for this event under team dues. Must follow Sundown’s COVID policies.
