(January 2, 2008 - Macon, GA)
Dick Rich and his son, Jason, announced today that Echeconnee Off-Road Park located in Macon, Georgia will be open for ATV practice during the months of January and February 2008 and possibly even further into the spring.
"With all the national racers heading South during the winter to stay in shape and get all the practice in that they can before the beginning of the '08 seasons, we wanted to offer them a place to practice that was not quite as far as Florida and offer the racers an excellent practice facility," track owner Dick Rich said. "We are keeping Echeconnee open all winter long with daily track grooming, open gates and hookups. We know how much all the national racers love Echeconnee and this is our way of letting them know that the feeling is mutual."
Echeconnee will be open from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. for practice Monday through Saturday. A day of practice will cost a rider $20 and, if they prefer to stay on the grounds, hookups are available for $20 per day. Extended stays are welcome and the hookup fee includes water and electric.
"We won't have any EMS services during practice and all riders will be required to sign a release form before being allowed to practice." Rich said. "There will be track personnel on site each day of practice and my son, Jason, will be living at the track to head up our practice staff. You don't have to call ahead unless you just want to let us know of your arrival time. Just show up and enjoy practice at the nationally acclaimed Echeconnee track."
In addition to being open for practice, Dr. David Reise of Moto TST Training will conduct training camps during January and February which will be held at Echeconnee Off-Road Park. These camps are designed to greatly enhance a racer's core strengths and endurance for the upcoming season.
"We've already had our first training camp of the year and Dick and Jason Rich have the Echeconnee facility in top notch condition. The track is perfect for practice and training." stated Reise. "If a rider can conquer the sands of Echeconnee along with our training program, they'll be hard to beat on any other national track in the United States."
