WIR Kid’s Night Out

Waterman, IL – The recent enactment of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), which bans the sale of motorcycles (and parts) intended for use by kids aged 12 and under, has shook the motocross industry to the bone. Showrooms are being cleared of small bikes.  Parts orders are not being shipped.  Kids are left wondering, “What is going on here?”  The Waterman International Raceway (WIR) will show its support of young dirt bike riders by hosting a special Kid’s Night Out open ride on February 28 from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

“Many of our customers are kids and they are already asking me if they are going to be able to continue to ride here” stated Dave Antolak, one of the owners of WIR.  “These kids have heard nothing but negative comments about their dirt bikes recently and are beginning to wonder if anyone cares” said Antolak, “so we decided to do something for them.”

On Saturday, February 28 from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. WIR invites all young dirt bike riders into their facility at a reduced price of only $10.00 for members and $20.00 for non-members.  The night will be devoted to only those riders on 50cc bikes up to Super Mini’s.

Information will be available to parents about the CPSIA and how it affects our sport.  Congressional letters and petitions will be distributed throughout the night urging every voter to contact their representatives and voice their opinion against the outlandish scope of the new law.

The Waterman Raceway is in its sixth year of providing riders in the Midwest with an indoor riding facility.  For more information go to wirmx.com or call 815/264-8834.
