Less than 3 weeks away from the 3rd annual national moped race event “The Tomahawk Cup III” from Friday Sept 23rd to Sunday Sept 25th at Grange Motor circuit, Apple Valley, California. Three days of camping, racing and partying!
The tension and excitement are building. The teams are getting ready. Some of the fastest US moped racers are coming to California to battle it out for the GLORY on Saturday at the “Trophy Races” and for the CA$H on Sunday at the “Cup Races” !
All moped brands and engine set ups will be represented and divided in different classes, from “Bone Stock 50cc” to “Unlimited 99cc”. Come join us to race or just hang out and watch the races. It’s going to be pure moped FUN!
Here’s a quick spotlight on some of those amazing moped racers coming from across the country:
Thanks to some of your donations Justin Adler from “Lucky2Strokes” moped store is flying out of Boston to come race for the very first time at the Cup. He’s a talented rider and we’re are very excited to watch him compete this year with his custom Puch 74cc race moped in the NON-Variated 75cc and Unlimited 99cc classes.
Another experienced moped racer Shane Johnson is coming all the way from Wisconsin to compete in the Variated 75cc class with his Motobecane 50cc Doppler air cooled. Big thanks to him for making the trip and supporting the event!
