Dirt Tricks has stepped up for the final round to supply Holeshot awards to the first rider through the banners of the ‘B’, ‘C’, and ‘D’ rows to receive a free set of Ironman Sprockets. RTT Motorsports will also be giving away a free stabilizer kit to the 1st Place 3-Loop C Rider. Contingency from TBT Suspension and Rekluse for all class winners of the series will be awarded. On the ATV side from Blais Racing Services, a pair of rear Kenda ATV tires will be awarded to the Intermediate B ATV class winner. Several pairs of SCOTT goggles will be tossed out from the podium along with many other contingency give-aways at sign-ups for all classes.
Four loops and a mandatory trip down pit row means that all the racers will be part of the action as even the beginners have to come through the same pit that Kendall Norman and his Championship winning Honda will be utilizing. A spectator friendly start area and an all new pit location are sure to be a highlight of the season as for this will be the last time in 2010 that the banner will fall, leaving one rider with the chance for an NHHA overall victory.
Kyle Penner is returning hot off his win just one week ago at Round 8 and looks to add another Overall ATV victory to his already impressive resume.

Joining him on the line will be Shayla Fulfer, the fastest woman in Idaho who hopes to win her first race here in California. In order to do so however, she will have to get past the reigning #1 Hare & Hound Champ, Joanna Kaczmarek, who needs to only finish in order to clinch her second straight championship title. Committed to Round 9 and the entire 2011 season, Sarah Kritsch and her D37 #1 Plate will be sure to give a run at the #N1L title as well, and bragging rights as the fastest woman in the desert.

With good finishes at Round 8, the Grandfather/Grandson combo of Bryson and Dale Parriott who look to come out and ride for fun for a change, both riders could be taking home a series championship in their respective classes. Also riding for fun, Craig Smith and his Beta are locked in as the fastest Vet rider of the year in the A Class. Mark Weirich and Brent Battin will join him as well, earning enough points at Round 8 to be untouchable after Round 9 in the 40+ and 50+ classes.
Finally, with everything to lose, the battle for the remaining championships will be heated as Rachel Bosemer leads the charge telling the boys of the ATV C class that they ain’t got nothing on her. Brett Landfield hopes to do the same with only seven points separating him from the second place bike of Dakota Rogers in the 250 B class. Joining in the hunt, Matt Davis of the Vet B class and Aaron Hopson of the ATV B class. Aaron will need to finish in order to hold off the second place ATV of his Father, Stirling.
If neither Hopson finish however, then the older sister of ATV C rider Rachel, Andrea Bosemer is ready to close in the gap and take the ATV B Class Championship with a first place finish at this weekend’s 100’s MC National Hare & Hound.
Any way you look at it, Round 9 is sure to be exciting. Come be a part of history as the NHHA celebrates it’s final round of the 2010 season. George Antill is back as race emcee on the podium doing interviews and giving race reports throughout the day, and the atmosphere in the pits is something that shouldn’t be missed.
