Those mini bikes you see here

Sure looks fun doesn't it? As far as I know they were all shot at TMGP Races. Want to join in on it? Well, there are some rules!

Round 1 of TMGP 2018 is quickly approaching! It is scheduled for Feb 24-25 at Gulf Coast Kartway in Katy, TX.

Not sure racing is for you, but still curious? Come check it out! Small entrance fee to get in. Show up pre-race to get the most information. Not sure who to talk to? Keep an eye out for a green KLX110 motard with #7 on the plates. I would be more than happy to answer what I can, or point you to someone if I cannot.

Showing up but want to get closer to the action? They (TMGP) can almost always use an extra body to run flags in the corners. I believe it pays, but do not quote me on that!

Cheapest entry level bike for sprint racing is a stock crf50/xr50 (tuned carb, big bars, street tires OK) unless you find a smoking deal on another bike that fits within TMGP classifications. For endurance you will want an F7 or better bike (xr100, klx110, ttr110, ssr110.) See class structure for more details.

Never knew that place was out there. Only about 10 miles from my house. Too bad I am working those days.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Yeah, I will have to keep an eye out for it. My kids might enjoy watching it too (12 and 15).

Yeah, I would love to (and my daughter would like to), but the wife has said no.

I am still working on being "allowed" to bring my kids out of the neighborhood.

Plus the cost of the bike and equipment, storage of bikes, and all other costs.

Holy sh$t...I think I know where I’ll be Feb 24-25...

Only about 3h from my house in SA...maybe 4h if I ride it all the way on backroads/dirtroads.
