Portland International Raceway (PIR) has continued to grow Monday night racing with plenty of new racers coming to check it out. On the final night of the season, August 27, organizers are planning a special event for the women's categories (novice and open).
"There will be clinics, coaches, experienced racers and plenty of prizes and raffle items," said Jim Anderson, series organizer. "We are encouraging any women that are interested to stop by and learn more."
"We provide an easy way to get started in racing with little financial commitment and we make it easy to learn about the sport," said Anderson. "On Monday nights at PIR, we have always supported women's racing. We want to continue to expand that category, build a network of women interested in racing and end the PIR season in style."
However, all levels and abilities are welcomed and encouraged to attend and check out racing on the 1.9 mile loop.: all that's required is a helmet, a road bike and a sense of adventure. Experienced riders from local racing teams are on hand to provide guidance and answer questions. There are separate races for novice masters men (aged 30+), novice women (any age), two categories for more experienced masters men (aged 30+), and an open women (any age).
