Last Day Early Signup for Swan #TWS16

January 12, 2016 (Tyler, Texas) – Today is the last day to do “online registration” for Round 2 of the 16th Annual FMF Texas Winter Series this coming weekend, January 16th-17th at Swan MX Raceway Park.  With the high number of entries, it helps save time and you money to sign up online.

For the riders that missed round one, now is the time to jump into the Texas Winter Series.  For riders that compete in 4 of the 5 rounds, their points will count toward the Top 10 overall series awards and contingency handed at Round 5.  If you are one of the few racers that have never competed at Swan MX, you are missing out on one of the best tracks in Texas.  Come play in the red dirt this weekend for yourself.  Who knows ……. you might have fun!  One thing is for sure, you will have someone to race with.
