Round 9 of the AMA/Kenda National Hare & Hound Championship Series will be hosted by AMA District 37’s So Cal MC on Sunday October 9th. With a 4-month break in the series, racers are gearing up for the last two rounds, both of which are taking place in the Johnson Valley OHV area of the Southern California desert. This weekend’s race will be located at East Anderson/Anderson Dry Lake (marked from Camp Rock Rd).
The upcoming Round 9 will be a 3-loop format, 100 miles total and is sure to be a favorite for all the racers who participate. So Cal MC is pulling out all the stops and have been scouting their loops for the past few months, which will consist of all the various terrain types that Johnson Valley has to offer. Loop 2 will have an alternate gas pit at race mile 40. The location is easily accessible and maps to this location will be provided at sign-ups. With some cooler weather to come this week, it is sure to be an awesome race weekend!
So Cal MC will also be hosting a kid’s race on Saturday Oct 8th at 3:00pm. Come on out and cheer on the kids – our future desert racers!
