Event Program

Welcome!

The Arizona Old Timers MX club is proud to bring you our 20th annual IOTMX race for 2022.  It promises to be full weekend of racing and fantastic southwestern weather!  The Arizona Old Timers would like to thank you for making the trip to the great southwest. Without you and others like you, this race would not happen! Enjoy yourself, have fun and be SAFE!

Inside this program you will find everything you need to know about our event, including the practice and race schedule and of course, the dinner. Look for the Sign-up booth close to the tower for registration and the latest updated race information.   Be sure to check the Results Board to see the list of Club Rep’s as well as some important International Rule updates! 

Saturday   Dinner this year will be provided by Phat Cheeks Grill. Their catering truck will be available from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. Just bring your meal ticket (and cash or credit card for extra dinners) and choose your dinner, which will be individually served to help maintain COVID guidelines. Their full menu will also be available for purchase so there is no need to purchase extra dinner tickets.   A public announcement will be made to insure all diners are made aware of the dinner status.

Saturday’s after dinner raffle will occur once again at the tent area behind the bleachers. We are encouraging you to bring your own chair and to socially distance from the other participants. It is not required for you to be physically present at the raffle to win a prize. Winning numbers will be posted on Sunday for prize presentation.

Some Covid-19 Virus reminders:

  • We are outdoors, but please remember to give everyone space (at least 6 foot if possible).
  • Please wear a mask when entering into enclosed spaces.
  • Wash your hands often.

Remember, for most us, there are 5 moto’s this weekend. Have fun, but more importantly, ride within your limits and return home safely.  Don’t forget, you are in the desert and you need to stay hydrated.  

We have several companies that are providing support for our event. We all have favorite places to buy parts and supplies but we encourage you to share the love with some of your purchases. This will help keep all the companies that support the sport in a position to continue helping us to have great events in the future! Please visit our sponsors and even if you don’t purchase anything please consider writing them a quick email saying “thank you for supporting our sport”.

Again, Thank You for choosing to race with us, we hope you have a very memorable time and return home with nothing but good memories and sore muscles!

AZOT Board Members:     Michael Faso – President, Larry Thurman - Vice President, Carl Smith - Race Director, John Dolan - Treasurer, Katherine Faso - Secretary

Some Important Rules and Procedures to know and follow: 

  • All dogs must be on a leash. Please note: You will be held liable if your dog harms a person or another dog.
  • Please use the provided garbage receptacles to keep the park clean
  • Please, no generators after 10pm
  • Please contact your club representative for any concern or complaint
  • Protests may only be lodged by riders in the same moto and must be lodged with the rider’s chapter representative in writing, within 60 minutes after results are posted for the Moto in question.
  • Do not bother the scorekeepers on race days.
  • If a rider leaves the track during a moto, they must safely re-enter the track as close to the point of exit as possible and without improvement of position. Always check the Results Board for the latest posting of important rules and changes. 
  • Changing motorcycles during a moto will be cause for finishing last in the moto. The Scorekeeper (the person doing the lap scores/sheet results) must be notified of plate number changes when changing motorcycles during the race event. This notification must be done prior to the moto where the different number is used. Failure to notify the Scorekeeper will result in finishing last in the moto.
  • When a yellow flag is displayed, there is no passing or jumping between the flag and the incident that caused the yellow flag.
  • Decisions made by the presiding Riding Committee are final.
  • Track watering is never popular here in Arizona. Every effort will be made to not water prior to a moto in the rotation that was previously affected. A safety sighting lap will be offered after each track watering.

 

Abusive language or aggressive conduct toward race officials, scorers, volunteers or other racers will not be tolerated. Racers engaging in this type of behavior are subject to ejection from the event, their entry fees will not be refunded, and they will forfeit their points.

Number Plates must have Proper Backgrounds

Master

One time - single event riders will be allowed to use a strip of appropriate colored tape applied horizontally above and below the number.  Riders with the wrong-colored number plates will not receive international points.
