January 24, 2012 (Fort Worth, Texas) – Online registration is open through 6pm Thursday, January 27th for Round 3 of the 12th Annual Honda of Houston/FMF AMA Texas Winter Series at Village Creek MX Park. With two rounds down and two more to go, riders continue to gather points for their FMF class championships, FMF/Works Connection division championships along with the Bell Golden Helmet award, the Renthal Bronze Bar award and the Alpinestars Vet Horizon award. The Texas Winter Series also kicks off the AMA ProAm season at each round so racing will be intense.
Terry Cordray (Owner of Village Creek) has been redesigning the hillside for a different feel for the Fort Worth track. With rain forecasted through Wednesday, the schedule is being revised to accommodate the riders and their families. “With factory contingency from all of the OEM’s, we must plan for those coming from near and far” said Tom Shields, Marketing Director for the series. “Village Creek has been working hard the last two days to insure the water flows off the track and out of the parking areas” Shields said.
“This series has been the largest amateur series in Texas since 2006 and we plan on giving everyone a well ran program” said Terry Cordray. Mr. Cordray went on to say, “we will schedule mini’s early in the race order to help them get back home. The track is sealed up and we are ready.”
The forecast for the weekend is for beautiful, sunny skies with cool mornings in the 30’s and highs around 60. Check at www.FreestoneMX.com or the Freestone Facebook page for any further announcements or revisions.
