Riding Dirty January 15, 2015 Hare Scramble
That’s right. That’s what 101 dirt bike riders did on Sunday January 11th. Riders ranging in age from 6 years old (“Pee Wee”) to their late 50’s (“Super Senior”) competed in the annual “Hangover” Hare Scramble Race hosted by the Southern Maryland Dirt Riders at Wicomico Motosports Park in Mechanicsville, MD. Despite over 25 years of experience in dirt bike riding and racing, this was the first race promoted and hosted exclusively by the SMDR club. Several “determined” club members worked for weeks to lay out, cut and mark 5 miles of new, virgin trail through the woods of Wicomico for all the racers enjoyment. No one who entered and competed in this event had ever ridden the race course prior to Sunday; it was a brand new experience for all of the competitors. You name the bike and most likely you could have found it that cold, yet sunny, day there at Wicomico Motorsports Park. Several “Vintage” bikes showed up to race, even 1979 Honda SL 175 was present to impress the spectators and to put other competitors in awe.
The weather started out below freezing but soon reached a ”balmy” high in the low 40’s. Even though the race had been postponed from the previous weekend due to rain, racers and their families showed up happy and excited for a full day of racing. Some, such as 1st place “Girls” winner, Shyann Phelps, and 1st place “85cc 12-15” winner, Drew Ford, came from as far away as New Jersey to compete in this annual event. At the end of the two hour race, there were many dirty riders and muddy dirt bikes to be seen. Yet, the riders themselves, through all the grime, had big smiles on their faces and nothing but good things to say about the new race course / trail and their SMDR hosts. The SMDR club President, Chip “2 Slow” Jowett, and the constantly in motion Vice President, Ray “Trail Blazer” Gamache, would like to give special thanks to Mike Long, the owner of the Wicomico Motorsports Park, for making his property available for the race; and also to all the volunteers from FOPWRC and SMDR for all of their hard work and for making this race a big success. The “Hangover” Hare Scramble Race is an annual event that is typically held on the first Sunday of the New Year, and Wicomico Motorsports Park has held the event at their venue for the last five years. The race is also sanctioned by the American Motorcycle Association (AMA) and is a “points” race for all eligible AMA District 7 racers.
