WAILUA — The Kaua‘i Motocross Riders Association has released its schedule as it prepares to kick off the 2012 season.
The KMRA, which operates out of the Wailua Motocross Track, will host its first event on March 25. The KMRA will then host one race a month, with races taking place on April 29, May 27, June 24, July 29, Sept.. 1, Oct. 28 and the season finale on Nov. 25.
The KMRA begins this season under new leadership, with Darrel Dabin taking the reigns as president.
Dabin said a big part of this season’s scheduling was making sure the races didn’t conflict with other sporting events.
“We are trying to schedule all of our races so that it will not interfere with other motor sport events on Kaua‘i,” Davin said. “This way, avid multi-sport racers can do motocross and other sports throughout the year.”
There are some other new faces at the KMRA this year in addition to Dabin. The new treasurer is Jim Littlefield. Kim Bunao takes over the secretary position, while Craig Arzadon will be acting as the vice president.
Arzadon said this year safety and course maintenance is a top priority.
“We want to have a safe and well maintained track every weekend so that everyone can enjoy the nice track conditions like a race day, even on practice days,” Arzadon said.
The KMRA added a new track and safety program to ensure riders will ride safely on the track and also adopted the American Motorcyclist Association’s rule and regulations.
The Wailua Motocross Track is located between the Wailua Golf Course and the Kaua‘i Beach Villas and is open Saturday and Sundays and Holidays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
