With 2010 in the books, and its first successful season of partnership with the AMA, the NHHA has been feverishly working behind the scenes to make 2011 one for the record books. Many changes have been made to help improve the look and appeal of the 2011 Hare and Hound experience and with that, a new effort to bring together the riders of the National Hare and Hound Series.
National Hare and Hound Association

Most exciting is the addition of the 10th round to the series. The only new round for 2010, WSRA will host a May round in the desert east of Reno, Nevada. With details to follow, the round will be hosted by a past National Enduro and National Hare Scrambles host club. Look to www.NationalHareandHound.com for details on the exciting new round for the 2011 season.
As the series continues to expand, and ridership continues to grow, the contingencies keep on rolling into the office of NHHA Promotions Manager, Chris Blais. “Our package has just grown to be something that the Off-Road Community can really benefit from. All I hear about is how loyal our riders are to the companies who are supporting the series, and these companies just continue to be excited about providing sponsorship through both product and contingency certificates.” – Chris Blais, NHHA Promotions Manager.
For 2011, Kenda will be returning as the title sponsor of the series, and joining them as series sub-sponsors will be FMF and FASST Co. Coming back to the series for the first time in nearly three years, FMF comes back to a series that it has always been deeply involved with. Through product give-aways at each of the 10 rounds, FMF will continue to set the bar high as far as the return to the rider is concerned. Returning for his second season in a row, Cole Townsend from FASST Co. will also be at each of the 10 rounds. With a dedication to helping the average rider get more of the “factory supported feel”, Cole will continue to be on hand at each of the events providing support and service to those riders who are running the Fasst Flex Handlebars.
In addition to the above mentioned sponsors, look for contingencies from the following companies in 2011: Alpinestars, Bullet Proof Designs, BRP, Dirt Tricks, Fluidyne, MadJack Racing/Amsoil, RB Components, Rekluse, RTT Stabilizer, TBT Suspension, Works Connection, & ZLT.
Along with that are the OEM Contingencies from: Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, & Husqvarna.

What’s in a Number?
One of the recurring issues with the National Hare and Hound Series has been the lack of uniformity within its numbering system. With each of the organizations having a different numbering system it is difficult for riders to identify themselves as a series rider, when they have actually raced more than one event.
As a solution to the obvious lack of a good numbering program, the NHHA has created a numbering system for all NON-EARNED-NUMBERED racers. An Earned-Numbered-Racer is someone who has competed in the 2010 season, and scored enough points in any of the “A-Classes” to finish within the Top 20 of their respective class. The earned numbers can only be used for competition in the same class, and are not eligible to be used if the “A Rider” is switching classes for 2011. *See Attached list of earned 2011 numbers below.
For those of you who haven’t earned an “A-Class Number,” recognition will be given in the form of an assigned series number. Pre-printed numbers/backgrounds will be provided at each of the 10 rounds. Once you have been issued a number, you will be allowed to retain that number for the remainder of the 2011 season. Because only “A-Classes” provide earned numbers, these issued numbers will be provided on a first come, first served basis and will be issued in numeric order. These numbers will only be issued one time, and if a rider fails to return to a later round with their assigned number, a new number will be assigned to them.
The NHHA pre-printed numbers will feature the NHHA Logo, and will be of ample quality to survive through each of the 10 rounds.
Local rider only? No Problem.
Local riders will not be required to run a National pre-printed number, and can instead decide between either their earned local or assigned National number. The NHHA will work with each of the local racing organizations to ensure that there is no numbering issue with duplicate numbers.
All numbers are subject to approval by the NHHA Scoring Staff, and will be assigned ON LOCATION ONLY. For more information on the NHHA Numbering program, look to www.NationalHareandHound.com

All earned “A-Class” numbers must be run in accordance to the AMA National Hare and Hound numbering guidelines. Black backgrounds with white numbers must be used, and each number must start with the correct Uppercase “N,” followed by the earned number, and finally followed by the class identifier in upper case at half the height of the preceding N and earned number.
Example: N1, N1M, N1R, N1A
