NESBA is a nonprofit organization that sponsors track days across the
country to get riders off the street and give them safe riding
instruction. This track day will be run as NESBA's events do, with riders
grouped by skill level: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Control riders
will be present to offer instruction and guidance. In addition, a
raffle for lots of great prizes will be held during the lunch break. For
this event, NESBA is waiving its membership fee, so if you have never been
on the track, now is a great time to try it. The event will cost
$150.00, we will not be providing lunch.

"It should be a great time for both street riders and experienced
racers. Not only can you get track time, but you can help South Jefferson
Elementary while you ride," said Bob Blandford, NESBA president. "We're
happy to be helping with this event."

Summit Point will be hosting the event and will be donating all
services for the event.

Summit Point Raceway is a challenging 10-turn, two mile asphalt road
racing circuit set in the pastoral Shenandoah Valley, located only 70

course combines slow and fast bends, with a 3,000 ft. straightaway and
considerable vertical relief. It is one of the most challenging
circuits in the nation. Motor sports events occur every weekend from March
through November, with various BSR schools occupying weekdays.
