What is a Reads Racing Membership?
A Reads Racing membership is a discount membership. It is not a Club. A Reads Racing membership will save you $5.00 every time you practice or race (unless an event is advertised otherwise). The cost of the Reads Racing membership is $40. You do not need to be a member to receive an award at the Reads Racing Year end Awards Banquet, BUT only members are eligible to receive "Year End Sweatshirts" in the Summer Series.
NOTE - You can use your Reads Racing membership card at G&S Racings on race days, to receive your $5.00 Discount. A Reads Racing Membership does not apply to G&S Racings practice days.

If your parent or legal guardian cannot attend you must provide a NOTARIZED NOTE from them allowing you to compete. "Click here" for an authorization form and instructions.

Question 7.
Can I bring a Pit Vehicle?

Yes, But we are always watching the Pit Vehicle situation. Pit Vehicles are to be used as transportation to and from the starting gate, or to and from Registration/Concessions. Pit Vehicles are a privelege and not a right. We reserve the right to shut down all pit vehicles at anytime. By using a pit vehicle you are subject to confiscation of pit vehicle if you miss use the privelege. There is no riding on any trails at any Reads Racing Facility. At Hangtime MX Park there is the original track behind the lower pit area. If you are caught on this track at any time your entire party may be ejected from the park with no refund.

Parents Pay Attention - This means if your daughter/Son is caught on the trails or on the back track at Hangtime, you can loose all of the money you have paid and be asked to leave because you didn't supervise your child! You are responsible for the actions of all minors you bring with you! Pit transportation is to be idle speed at all times!
Question 8.
What if I get Injured?
Every rider is responsible for their own Medical Coverage. If you would for example, break your arm, you are responsible for all costs you would incur. If you are injured we have Ambulance service at all events. Remember, unless our Ambulance transports you, you are not charged for treatment at the track. If an EMT/Paramedic examines you and (for example) bandages a cut, they do not bill you. Keep in mind our EMT's are there for a reason. Please do not interfere if your rider is injured the, EMT's are there to help, If there is a problem our track personnel will get you immediately.
Question 9.
Are pets welcome?

Pets are welcome, however must be kept on a leash or Tie out at all times - even within your pit area! Sorry - Electronic collars are not an acceptable substitute.  Leashes are a requirement.

Remember - This is for the safety of your dog, as well as all other dogs. PLEASE - If you have a dog that you know to be aggressive - keep in mind - you can be held responsible for the actions of your dog.  The track can be a stressful place for some dogs. The loud noises may cause anxiety and/or aggressiveness. You know your pet best. Please be mindful of the specific needs and temperament of your own pet, and take proper precautionary measures.
