NASQUAD News Alerts March-April 2010


DIRT WHEELS Magazine Publishes NASQUAD Series Preview

Dirt Wheels Magazine, the most comprehensive ATV/UTV magazine in circulation, has just released their June 2010 issue which includes a two page spread on the upcoming NASQUAD racing season.  Check out page 106 and page 107.  Dirt Wheels always has great how-to articles on repairing and modifying our quads.  The June issue is no exception and has a couple great articles of special interest to NASQUAD oval racers.  On pages 80-85 you will find a great article on widening your quad.  On pages 92-93, learn something about gearing and tire size that high-speed oval racers can use.  In oval racing, the only slow part of the race is the start; otherwise, you are at high speed the entire race; there are no tight corners.  For optimal performance in this environment, it helps if quads are lower and wider and quads may need to be re-geared to keep off the rev limiter and stay close to the peak torque range of engine RPM.  NASQUAD Racing has established a new amateur maximum 60 inch width rule and pro class maximum 54 inch width rule for better control in these high speed oval races.

4/28/10 Carries NASQUAD Racing Schedule, a leader in web based ATV news and content, publishes the NASQUAD 2010 summer racing schedule.  Check out for a comprehensive look at ATV products, events and other content.

National Racing Shops Invited to Four Corners 500

Invitations to the Four Corners 500 have just gone out to some of the nationally recognized shops specializing in racing performance enhancements.  CT Racing, Rath Racing, DragonFire Racing, HCR Racing, Duncan Racing, and Trinity Racing to name a few.  We know these guys are busy building ultra-special quads and figuring out how to pull every last pony out of an engine, but we are hoping they might find the time to visit and race in the 500, and perhaps test some of their latest creations at our altitude of 6200 feet.


Rocky Mountain ATV to Supply Material for Races

Rocky Mountain ATV, a national leader in ATV parts and accessories, has agreed to supply hay bale covers and other items for the races, gratis.  A big thank-you to Rocky Mountain ATV for supporting NASQUAD races.


DIRT WHEELS Magazine to Visit Four Corners Pro-Am

Dirt Wheels Magazine plans on coming to Cortez to race in one of the events this summer.  We will keep you posted!


NASQUAD Establishes New Width Rule

On all its amateur oval flat track races, quad width will be limited to sixty (60) inches.  Pro class quads will be limited to fifty-four (54) inches.   Testing has shown that the considerably wider stance, especially if in conjunction with a lowering kit,  decreases the liklihood of rollovers significantly, and improves the power sliding capabilities of the quads. 


Concessions Available to Racers and Spectators

Concessions will be available at the track during all 2010 events, including food, snacks and beverages. 


Practice Day Added to Four Corners Pro-Am

In response to inquiries by racers attending the Four Corners Pro-Am and the Four Corners 500, we have adjusted our summer 2010 schedule.  June 27, 2010 will not be the first round of the Pro-Am.  Rather, June 27 will be a full practice and qualifying heats day where all racers will be able to get to know the Montezuma Raceway track and have a chance to dial in their quads for the races.  We will use the qualifying heats to place racers in appropriate squads for the races,  Practice fees are $35 for the day for all classes except childrens' classes which are $25.
