RENO,NV OCTOBER 22, 2010: VORRA’s final weekend of racing for the 2010 season will host a ATV short course race program on Saturday October 30th at Prairie City OHV park in Folsom, CA.

The different ATV classes will each run 3-motos on the VORRA track. Pro and Amateur age limit is 16, with a $55 plus $10 transponder entry fee. There is 100% payback for Pro Riders. There are also multiple lower brackets to encourage family racing VORRA is known for.

All lower classes entry fee is $35 plus $10 transponder fee. “We create a GP style track for the guys and gals to ride and have never had anything but positive feedback from racers. We want to see this series grow into multiple dates next year,” said Wes Harbor, VORRA Race Promoter.
The UTV class has been strong all year, and encourages new racers to come out and put a few laps in the dirt to prepare for next years series. Next year, VORRA will be the biggest UTV sanctioned event in Northern California and Northern Nevada area. Safety equipment is required, but not overwhelming. “We have been working closely with the UTV racers that have come to every race this year to outline realistic safety expectations where we feel the driver is safe, without making it impossible to come out and race for a weekend. I think we have come to a great understanding, and am really looking forward to attracting more guys that want to try their hand at racing,” said Harbor.
The Halloween weekend race is the last race of the season for VORRA racers. Saturday ATV tech and registration is from 8am-10am, practice starts at 12pm and racing starts at 1pm. Saturday nights events include a BBQ, costume party and a kids pumpkin carving contest. Sunday’s race program will include Trucks, Class 1 cars and a lot of other off road classes. VORRA is in its 35th year of producing high quality, yet family affordable racing. These short course races are a great opportunity to bring your ATV or racecar out to race, and your family to enjoy a nice Northern California Fall day. Gate fee is only $10, Juniors 8-14 $5 and 7-under free.

Valley Off Road Racing Association (VORRA) was established in 1975 as a family-oriented organization and is led by current promoter Wes Harbor who believes that “off road racing has its roots in people’s garages”. VORRA is the only organization to offer both four short course races and four desert races as part of its overall season championship. Each race draws over 60 racers between multiple classes available for Cars, Trucks, Pilots, ATV, UTV and Trophy Karts. In 2010 VORRA has added two additional truck classes and a stand alone ATV Race Series. More information can be found at www.vorra.net
