Bike Only Races
For all of the Bikes Only Racers who had planned to attend the September 15 Bikes Only Race that was rained out, please check this out!!
As you all well know, the Bikes Only Race was rained out. We apologize for this but we cannot control the weather and we are NOT weather forecasters (not that they seem to get the weather forecast right either) but in any event, what is done is done and can't be undone.
As such, in light of trying to come up with an alternate resolution to the rained out Bikes Event, this is what we've come up with. For ANY Bike racer who wants to come out and race, here is what we will do.
If you want to come out and attend this weekend's Test Day (Sat. Sept 21) or the Saturday Fun Race (Sat. Sept 28) you may do so for the same cost as the Bikes Only Event, $40. You will be allowed to Test or make time runs during the time allotted of either of the events and if the Bikes that are in attendance on either of those days want to run a separate Eliminations Race for Bikes Only, we will do so. The Race itself will be run with dial-ins, no 1/2 second index classes. Trophies will be awarded as would have been on Bike Day.
This may not be the perfect resolution to the rained out Bikes Only Event, but it is the best we can do. The fall weather is approaching and we have events scheduled for every weekend until the end of October and cannot have a Bikes Only Day because of that. We also know Bikes don't necessarily like to travel or come out when it gets cold and I don't blame them. In any event, we hope that this helps somewhat and you will attend one of these events. Thank you.
If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact me (Jennifer) at Jennifer@RockFallsRaceway.Com or at (715) 858-0170.
In 2013, we have only 1 Bikes Only Drag Race. That date is:
Sunday, September 15
These drag races are open to all motorcycles except those with automobile, marine or aircraft engines. NO CARS or SNOWMOBILES ALLOWED!! Come bring your motorcycle to the Rock and race it down the 1/4 mile for just $40. Time Trials begin at 9 a.m. with eliminations at 1 p.m. Win 2 rounds of competition and win a trophy. We will also have a free Consolation Race for those who lose 1st or 2nd round. Class eliminations will be set by 1/2 second increments. In other words, if your bike runs 13.23 your class would be 13:00 to 13:50 and so on. The Consolation Race Eliminations will be run bracket racing style.
Full face helmet (Snell 2005 or newer) (Snell 2000, Snell 95 and K98 Helmets are no longer acceptable), long pants (no nylon), shoes above the ankle, leather jacket and leather gloves required. Bikes exceeding 120 mph in the 1/4 mile must have full leathers. Cycles running an E.T. of 10.99 or quicker must have a tether or positive ignition cutoff switch attached to the rider with a lanyard. OEM permitted in place of lanyard. Switch must be on low-voltage side of the ignition circuit. Many stock machines are equipped with a handlebar-mounted thumb switch that can have a lanyard easily attached for the above purpose. (If you think your bike might qualify to run this fast, plan ahead and be prepared and equipped.) Bikes running an E.T. of 9.99 or quicker must follow NHRA rules. No scooters or mopeds allowed. Minors must also have a Minor Release signed by parents in order to race. Call the office at (715) 858-0170 to request one or email firstname.lastname@example.org. No faxed Releases are acceptable, only originals.

These helmets are no longer be acceptable for racing any motorcycles, any snowmobiles or automobiles (that run 13.99 or quicker) as of 1/1/2012. Please plan accordingly if you have a Snell 2000 helmet as you will need to replace prior to any drag racing activity at Rock Falls Raceway or any other NHRA sanctioned race track. Thanks.
