Mazda Night Awesomeness: FREE Rider Photos and $2,500+ in Prizes

Mazda showed up in force and made Race #9 one of the best sponsor nights we have ever had!

WE HAD RAIN!!  God stepped in this week and gave the course a good watering.  #NoDirtBoogers!  All the rain ended just in time for the kids race to begin.

Mazda was out this week celebrating Mazda Night and a donation of 120 bikes to local foster homes through Mazda’s Drive for Good.

Race of the MF’s: E-Bike Madness

Mike Franze and Matt Ford squared off for a big first at Over the Hump.  AN E-BIKE RACE.

And just to spice it up, the first rider to catch them got $150 from the loser of the race.  Fortunately for the two MF’s, no one was able to catch them.

Social Media Contest: More Racer Prizes from Mazda

Mazda and Mad Moose Photography have teamed up to provide FREE digital photos to every racer.  

Here’s the rules:

  1. Find your photo
  2. Share it on FB, Insta, or Twitter
  3. Tag it with #DrivingMatters #raceoth

And that’s it! We will be picking winners next week.

Our Featured Shop: Rock ‘N Road Cyclery

This week’s featured shop was Rock N Road Cyclery!  Matt Ford even jumped on an E-Bike to race the other MF at OTH (Mike Franze).  More about that later.

This week’s Primes (Prize Lap): Muscle Monster Backpacks

Muscle Monster threw their hat in the ring this week with a very popular prime, The Muscle Monster Back Pack

Don’t know what a Prize Lap is?  Basically, you can win free stuff! This week, Muscle Monster was hooking up OTH racers with Backpacks.

Each week, the first person across the finish line for each class will win a premium prize at the end of the race.

This does a couple of cool things for the racer:

  1. If you aren’t super fast for the whole race, but can fly for the first lap, it gives you a realistic chance to win something awesome.
  2. It can totally change how the race feels for everyone.

Stay tuned next week for more details about the prize lap.
