Welcome Chuck, My advice in a nutshell would be.

1. Pick which events you want to attend. (Speedweek, BMST, World of Speed, World Finals)

2. Get a copy of the applicable rules.

3. Look at the current records and find one you would like to go after.

4. Choose your weapon and get it ready.

At the top left of the Landracing.com home page is a list of links to the various events.

Hope this helps, Don

Nick Genet is a Land Speed bike racer in Seattle.... you might want to hook up with him... you should attend an event just to see how it goes.  There are thousands of bike classes, should be easy to find one you like

Hi All!

Jake Weikert here. Been a lifelong racer and will be making my first runs at Bonneville later this year at Speed Week.

My racing career started at the age of 8 in go-carts in eastern Iowa. Running carts through the age of 14 when I got "too big" to compete with the smaller kids so sold out and upgraded to Stock cars.

Running cars through college starting in cruiser class and eventually finishing in IMCA Modifieds when life got in the way...

Since then I have been all over in the motorsports world messing with Pikes Peak stuff and doing some motorcycle trials.

That all changed in 2009 when I first visited Bonneville and knew that is what I want to do! That year we drove from Iowa out without any idea or plan. Left on Friday morning, made it there Saturday, went to the salt Saturday and Sunday and back in Iowa Monday afternoon... stupid to say the least!

Since then we have attended every year they ran Speedweek driving out and back (including 2014) and have been trying to come up with a plan to get something out there.

Last year we decided to put together a plan for this year using a restored 1974 Honda Flat Tracker we built for Pikes Peak to run.

This year Weikert Bros Racing will be partnering with Paynes Cycle Center of Rock Island to run to raise money for the Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. I know the record for the smaller bike classes (250, 350) are not as glamorous as the big guys but we wanted to start out with something attainable for our first time. We are running a 250 class Honda flat tracker! A lot of work to do but we will be there and ready to go August 11th. Any help or advice will be much appreciated! I am not someone who knows it all and am open to any help!

Here is our facebook page if anyone wants to check it out:

here is the link to our fundraising page as well for the Fox Foundation:

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!
