The Pro Armor King of the Mountain proves to be the toughest SXS and ATV race in the country

Huntsville, TN (Sept 15, 2009) – The Pro Armor King of the Mountain Endurance Challenge lived up to the claim as the toughest Side X Side and ATV race in the country. The course, built by hard-core racers for hard-core racers, pushed all that raced to a level that they never thought was possible. Many of the racers commented that the course was much tougher than they expected, not believing the hype. Although exhausted, the majority of the racers said they would return next year with expectations of an even more extreme course. And the promoters will give it to them, as they vow to push the bar even higher for the toughest SXS and ATV race in the country.

Congratulations go out to SXS Class winners Mike Mahan and co- driver Chris Hickey, besting second place by 2 laps and logging 16 laps in a time of 4:03:02. ATV class winner Denny Carson, who completed 14 laps in a time of 4:07:42, also finished 2 laps in front. The winners of each race can now say they are the Baddest of the Bad – until next year.

“I hope we get to do it again next year! If you plan on racing, prepare for the toughest 4 hours SXS racing has seen yet.” – UTVWeekly.com

Drag Boat Festival Rescheduled for This Weekend At Red Bluff Recreation Area

Drag Boat Festival Rescheduled for This Weekend At Red Bluff Recreation Area

Willows, May 27, 2008 - The annual International Hot Boat Association Nitro Nationals Drag Boat Festival previously scheduled for the Memorial Day weekend at Lake Red Bluff in the Red Bluff Recreation Area was canceled due to unsafe winds on the water surface. The event is now rescheduled for Saturday and Sunday, May 31 and June 1.

Trail access and Sale Lane entry into the Red Bluff Recreation Area will be closed starting at 6:00 a.m. on Friday, May 30, through 6:00 p.m. on Monday, June 2.

During the event the Forest Service boat ramp below the Diversion Dam will remain open with an alternate access route through the event parking area. Sycamore Grove Campground will be open during the event and available to the public on a first come-first served basis.

The purpose for the closure is to provide for public safety, prevent theft and vandalism of facilities, vendor(s) equipment, and prevent access into the permit area during the event, said Paul Montgomery, Grindstone District Implementation Officer.

The Drag Boat Festival is an authorized event under a Special Use Permit issued by the Forest Service to New Entertainment Concepts. It has been a long standing event in Red Bluff and generates substantial revenue for the local community. Special Use fees from the event provide improvements for the Red Bluff Recreational Area, which is administered by the Mendocino National Forest.
