Texas Winter Series Champions 2013

February 26, 2013 (Wortham, Texas) – With an average of 542 entries over the five round series, the Texas Winter Series showed a 21% growth from 2012 to 2013.  The riders were the biggest benefactor with better competition and the addition of another top notch facility (Underground MX Park) in the series.  If not for rough weather for Round 2 that plagued Village Creek, the series was headed for an even bigger average.

Many have been asking where to find full gates and the Texas Winter Series again showed this is the series to be in.  Riders from 27 different states (Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, N. Carolina, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, S. Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Mexico) came to battle for over $300,000 in factory contingency, product and certificate series sponsors.
