2024 RACE SEASON HAS ENDED

The 2024 BEVRA race season has officially ended.

 

The final Feb 24 scheduled race has been cancelled due to the ongoing unseasonable weather. This is a first in the 21-year history of BEVRA where the club was unable to hold an official race.  Looking back on the last 16 years of points data we can see there have been three seasons where only one race was logged.  Strangely, there have not been any 2 race seasons and only a handful of three race seasons.  4 and 5 race seasons have been common suggesting that when winter does decide to fall on us, it falls hard.  Don’t lose hope…  Next year could be a doozy!

FEBRUARY 3 SCHEDULED RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

FEBRUARY 3 SCHEDULED RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED. We are still in a holding pattern waiting for the temps to drop. Until then all we can do is stay on top other responsibilities so when it gets cold we can ignore everything and race ice oval sleds. Stay tuned…

JANUARY 27 SCHEDULED RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED

JANUARY 27 SCHEDULED RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
Mother nature has thrown us another mood swing. Warm temps have not been favorable to build ice and melting snow has made the new location too soft for traffic. Once again we wait. Next weeks forecasted temps look to be similar but don’t lose hope!!! Long term February temps look much better. Winter is not over… It is on temporary hold. When the temps plummet we will build it and you will come! We will race back to back until you have all had your fill. Keep an eye on this page for updates and we will see you soon!

THE JANUARY 20TH SCHEDULED RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED

THE JANUARY 20TH SCHEDULED RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED… BUT… THE TRACK WILL BE OPEN ON SATURDAY FOR TESTING.
Mother nature wins again. The crew has managed to lay down about 4 inches of ice but the melt we experienced just before this cold spell put hot spots in the ground that are causing problems. Justin is going to take advantage of the cold temps and continue to build ice but at this time we don’t feel there is time to build enough to hold a safe race by Saturday. We also can’t guarantee that the soft spots can be controlled well enough to guarantee they will hold up. We do have the making of a track however, and would like to offer it up for a testing surface. The trouble spots are on the outer perimeter and can be avoided. We expect to have about 6 inches of good ice to be used for testing. To recoup some of the money invested we are asking for $25 per person at the gate and the signing of a waiver. Since we will not be conducting races there will not be an ambulance present . We will open the track from 10:00am to 3:00pm and are planning on running it just like hot laps. Cancelling was an extremely hard decision. This is the best we could do at this point. We know that a lot of you have not had any seat time so we are hoping this is beneficial. Please don’t show up at the track before 8:30. We hope to see you there.

RACE ON FEB 4!!!

YES, BEVRA WILL BE RACING THIS SATURDAY FEB 4.
A REMINDER THAT ALL THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY WEB STORE APARELL ORDERS WILL BE AT THE TRACK THIS WEEKEND.
The ice continues to grow. A this point we cannot say the track will be as thick as we would like but with warmer temps forecasted for next week we feel we need to be racing. We don’t know what the rest of the season has in store. More than likely we will limit hot laps to only those with zero experience or zero ice time or new built non ridden sleds. Heat and final laps also to be determined. The hard part is trying to look into the crystal ball and determine if the best choice is to race like we may never race again or run a conservative program hoping to save the ice for the next cold snap if it comes. Your guess is as good as ours.
NONE OF THAT MATTERS TODAY CUZ WE ARE RACING SATURDAY!!! It will be great to see everybody!
There is a new entrance to the track this year that is routed through the gravel pit. The new entrance is a couple hundred yards north of where the entrance was last year.
