Penske Suspension & Tuning Seminar @ NJMP


Penske Racing Shocks and New Jersey Motorsports Park are offering a chance for you, as motorcycle track day enthusiasts, to gain some firsthand knowledge this winter during the NJMP University seminars. The first motorcycle course will focus on suspension and forks, and includes lunch and a hands-on afternoon session that applies the classroom knowledge to your personal motorcycle.

Suspension Dynamics and Tuning for Motorcycles
Saturday, December 5; 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

This course covers the design, terminology and theory of motorcycle suspension and forks, and the practical application of those items to motorcycles on a race track. The class will utilize a variety of available tools and resources from Penske Racing Shocks to explain various adjustments, including a shock dyno graph. Following a morning classroom session, students will tune their personal track day or racing motorcycles in New Jersey Motorsports Park’s garages, with hands-on assistance. The $75 course will be taught by Mike Himmelsbach, Motorcycle Department Manager, and Aaron Lambert, Production Manager, of Penske Racing Shocks.

Announcement Regarding Sponsor Listing

Attention! It is your responsibility as the rider to insure that your sponsors are listed correctly on the results AT THE EVENT. We have no idea who your sponsors are, so you must help us to make certain they are correct on the final results at the event.

As of June 4, 2009 we will no longer correct your sponsor listing on results received from an event. Please remember that sponsor forms must be turned into REGISTRATION by 9:00am on the day of your race as stated on the form, no where else. If you turn the form in at Tech, it will not be entered.

We will continue to correct and update sponsors that are sent to the office prior to the pre-entry cutoff for each event.

The Suzuki Contingency moved from an earlier date has been scheduled for Palm Beach International on Memorial Day. So make your plans to attend now, for more information call CCS Florida at 561-793-3394.

Heartland Park Results Pending Audit

Attention Great Plains and Mid-West Riders:

Due to scoring hardware issues at the April 25-26 event, all results from Race 2 at Heartland Park will be audited before points are assigned. This audit is to insure that points awarded and the results submitted to our sponsors are correct. The audit is expected to be completed by May 3, 2009.

Since the problems were discovered after results posted at the track were final, trophies awarded will not change, it is an audit to correct points and results only.

Any changes made to the results that were posted at the track will be announced on this page.

We apologize for the inconvenience and feel that riders would agree it is better that we get it right.

Kevin Elliott
Director of Operations ASRA/CCS

Red Flag Fund Ceases Operations

Press Release

Red Flag Fund Board of Directors Votes to End Operations

(March 16, 2009) - The Red Flag Fund board of directors recently voted to end operations of the Red Flag Fund charity and donate all remaining general funds to the Roadracing World Action Fund and other non-profit charities that support the motorcycle road racing community and their families. The decision was made after plans to install a new fund manager fell through.

"The day-to-day work of running the Red Flag Fund can be overwhelming," said Red Flag Fund co-founder Jeff Kufalk. "Frankly, it's like having a second full-time job, and without an operations manager, the fund cannot go forward. On behalf of the Red Flag Fund board of directors, I want to thank our sponsors who donated items for auction, those who purchased Red Flag Fund auction items and other merchandise, and all those who volunteered to help along the way. It was a tremendous effort, but assisting seriously injured road racers when they needed help the most was a rewarding experience we'll never forget."

Red Flag Fund, Inc. was a non-stock, non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable company formed in 2006 to provide financial assistance to seriously injured motorcycle road racers, as well as educate motorcycle riders on the importance of proper safety gear.

New Sponsor!

Ferodo Brakes

Ferodo has joined our Contingency Award Program for the remainder of 2009.

Details about events, classes, requirements and actual awards are still being ironed out, but we hope to post information shortly so you can take advantage of them.

Michelin U.S. Motorcycle Championship Posts $87,500 Purse For Pro, Expert And Amateur Racers

GREENVILLE, S.C. (Jan. 09, 2009) - The Michelin Motorcycle Championship, set for October 3-4, 2009 at Barber Motorsports Park near Birmingham, Ala., will be an exclusive, invitation-only event for sportsman-level racers who compete on MICHELIN® racing tires. The event will offer $87,500 in prize money over two days of racing.

The Michelin U.S. Motorcycle Championship will be co-sanctioned by both WERA and CCS/ASRA, and will comprise three classes recognized by both organizations: 600cc supersport, 1000cc superstock and Thunderbike/Twins. Within each class, racers will be divided into pro, expert and amateur divisions, with separate purse payouts for each.

"This is the first time that WERA and CCS have come together to sanction a single event," said Bernard Jarrousse, Michelin North America's director for motorcycle road racing. "We want to provide an opportunity for regional racers who compete on MICHELIN® racing tires to test themselves against riders from across the country, and to possibly finish the 2009 season with a big payday."
