Strider Bikes hit Tea’s with the new 2014 line up!

Stop in and talk with Charlie as he has some great spring pricing and combo deals going on.  Prices even the big box stores can’t match with free set up for pick up or free shipping to your door step for those not near Rochester.

STRIDER™ balance bikes are industry-leading training bikes that help children as young as 18 months learn to ride on two wheels. STRIDER balance bikes focus on the fundamentals of balancing, leaning, and steering without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels.

The STRIDER’s simple, no-pedal design builds confidence and eliminates fear by allowing kids to have their feet on the ground and progress at their own pace. This unique design teaches young children balance on two wheels right from the start, avoiding developmental delays typical with tricycles and training-wheel bikes.

Genuine STRIDER balance bikes are the lightest balance bikes in their category, have the lowest seat height (for the youngest starting age), and are tested to the most stringent safety standards. Frame-integrated footrests, proprietary components, and the ability to easily adjust to a growing child, make the STRIDER the only bike your child needs to develop their riding skills and successfully transfer onto their first pedal bike without training wheels.

Super Stock!!!!!

OK while I don’t feel that we make many changes to a class once a season starts the following change to what we call Limited Late Model I feel is a good direction for the class to take and brought up by racers in the class with full support from those currently running the class. It also puts the class more in line with what other tracks are doing around the county. We would like to see all racers into the Super Stock Body’s by the Holiday 100 at the end of the year/start of 2014. If a racer has any issues with making the change please talk with me!!!!!!

Changes as follows on the body’s only:

-Only body’s allowed in Super Stock are the following McAllister Racing body’s
B125 Buick Regel SS
B134 Barracuda
B136 Boss Mustang
B264 Camaro
B268 Monte Carlo

B292 59 Plymouth
General Body rules:
-Cannot remove or cut any of the widows.
-Trimming of the body for wheel clearance is allowed
-On the front and rear you may cut up to the bottom of the bumpers but not past the bumper or you can leave any addition material you would like as long as it does not hit the track. Putting extra holes in the front or rear is not allowed.
