competitions at TrailRex, Aug. 20-23 in NY

does anyone plan on going?

looks pretty cool- lots of stuff going on for all OHVers

here's the scoop;

Tons of dirt bike, ATV and 4x4 activities planned for New York event, with a goal of building alliances to gain more riding opportunities

The annual TrailRex (Trail Riders Expo) promises to be the biggest northeast OHV festival of the year! This four-day mega-event is slated for August 20-23 at the expansive grounds of the Indian Lookout Country Club in Pattersonville, NY (20 miles west of Albany). Though family fun is certainly the primary goal of TrailRex, the festival is also designed to build important alliances in an effort to increase riding opportunities in the northeastern states. Many riding clubs, dealers and sponsors are already on board to make the festival a success.
Highlighting TrailRex are the numerous riding/driving events that feature classes for a wide variety of OHVs, including ATVs, UTVs, Dirt Bikes, Jeeps, 4x4 Trucks, Rock Crawlers and there’s even a big Snowmobile grass drag event planned (see website for event details). However, the festival features much more than motorsports competitions as there will be 8 different bands playing over the weekend with professional sound and light systems as well as a fireworks show every night. To keep everyone in the family happy there’s also a mechanical bull on hand, a Miss TrailRex Contest, Dale Earnhartd Jr.s #88 (you can try your hand at changing a NASCAR tire too!), and a special “surpise” exhibition from the Army National Guard and U.S. Marines like you’ve never seen before.

Event Highlights include;

¼ Mile Oval Flattrack

Great strides have already been taking place in regards to expanding northeast trail riding opportunities. In the past two years, the New York State Powersport Dealers Association (a primary sponsor of TrailRex) has helped riding clubs open over 800 miles of insured OHV trails on private lands. Over 70 dealerships and 26 OHV clubs will be involved in the TrailRex extravaganza this year with dozens of great sponsors on board as well.
