On Saturday October 15th, along with the VA State Championship Race, HamptonBMX will be hosting the 10th Annual Eddie Townsend Memorial Pro-Am Race. Eddie Townsend was a loving husband to Kelli Townsend and an awesome father to Andrew and Thomas Townsend. He was involved in all aspects of his boy’s lives. So much so, he took on the role as Track Director of Hampton Supertrack. After 7 years of being Track Director, he lost his battle to Scleroderma. Kelli and the boys continued on with running the track and racing. Andrew, the oldest of the boys, is now a Professional BMX racer and father while Thomas is an accomplished expert level BMX Racer and is known in the trails and freestyle community as an up and coming rider.
Each year well known BMX Racers from all around the county have come to race the Eddie Townsend Memorial Pro-Am, including 2012 and 2016 BMX Olympian, Nicholas Long.
In an effort to continue this legacy, HamptonBMX is looking for Sponsorships to increase the Pro-AM purse to over $2,000. Any amount is appreciated. For any sponsorship of $300 or more, you will be represented on the Eddie Townsend Memorial Banner which will be on display at the event and at every race throughout the remainder of the 2016 season.
PARKING, CAMPING and PIT AREA Update for STATE CHAMPIONSHIP...
Responding to feedback from last years event we have restricted parking and team / pit areas for this Saturdays event. There will be no general parking inside the gated area of the track. Most of this area will be reserved Pit /Tent areas and Vendors. Gates will open at 6:30 on Thursday evening for those wishing to get in and place a tent to secure their spot.
Some of you have requested VIP parking and we will have a few spaces available for that inside this area. Contact Chris Hanny if you wish to reserve one of those spots for $25 (757-434-3354).
Access will be granted before and during registration to allow you to drop off and set up your tent / pit area. Vehicles will then need to be moved to the General Parking area. The gate on the 4th straight will be closed by 12:30pm on Saturday, or sooner if area is filled.
RV camping sites are available in the main park on a first come first served basis, The park does not take reservations for these spots. They have an honor system in place for payment at the office adjacent to the camping area. They are Water and Power hook up, no sewer. There is a dumping station for your other needs. We will have over sized vehicle parking at the track if needed for the event. But the vehicles can not stay there overnight.
Tent Camping is available beyond the fourth straight next to the water. See a staff member if you need help finding this area.
Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend!
