Southern Maryland Dirt Riders Club will be awarding their eighth annual Southern Maryland Dirt Riders Privateer Award at the AMA Motocross National at Budds Creek on Saturday, June 16th to two lucky privateers. This is the sixth year that the award is given in the memory of Kevin Crine #574. Along with a beautiful plaque which will be awarded on the podium after the race by our club president Brian Stewart, each rider will receive Fifteen Hundred dollars apiece. There will be one 250 rider and one 450 rider selected from the pool of privateers that qualify for the Budds Creek race. The money that is given to the privateers is donated by club members at Southern Maryland Dirt Riders club events leading up to the Budds Creek National.
