Guam - In motocross news the 2014 season for riders will be a busy one. Riders will get a chance to look back at the 2013 season with an awards banquet being held later this month. The first official race of 2014 will take place February 9th.

Bob Bucek with GIRMAC told KUAM News, "We are going to be having our very popular award ceremony. This is going to be us crowning all of our champions from 2013. We had our 12 Round Monster Energy Motocross Championship Series and it's the premiere series of motocross here on Guam and we are going to be giving out all of the trophies, awards and prizes and that other stuff. Then we are going to be kicking off the championship for 2014, we are extending it and it's going to be a 15 round series. It's going to be starting on February 9th and the action is going to be wild and we have a lot of 85cc riders and a lot of kids mini ATV riders who are really fired up and just dying to get out there and mix it up. Then we have some rookies from last year that have been showing some speed so there are going to be a lot of contenders for that championship. Of course we have JR Cepeda coming back with Marshall Vaulters and a whole bunch of other top riders in the big bike classes and also in the big ATV classes along with myself and a few other riders. Hopefully all of our soldiers coming back from Afghanistan will hop back on out there at the track like they were before they left and I'll have some more competition out there. Those guys are young and ready to go and I'm looking forward to having them back and racing alongside of me."

Anyone interested in getting out there on the track and joining the federation can contact Bob Bucek at 727-5381 or log on to track@guam.net for more information.

Bucek said, "The track is open 7 days a week but if you call me at 727-5381 and let me know that you are heading out there I can bring you some membership forms and stuff like that I can give you some race information and the schedules. Other than that we are very user friendly and we want to make sure everybody uses their helmets and their safety gear. There is also a sign that is posted out there that has all the different track rules. No alcohol and no smoking in the pits and be respectful to each other, real common sense stuff. Non members pay a $10 fee every time they come out and ride and once you become a member those fees are part of your membership. It's a lot of fun and we are a big family and we look forward to new members all the time."
