Are you ready to storm the streets of Historic Uptown ButteMontana on your Supermoto or Quad with huge crowds lining the track and competefor a piece of the $5000 Pro purse? Well, we sure are!



Supermoto racers from all over the US and Canda will be convergingon the city streets for the 10th Annual Evel Knievel festival. This isthe 4th year that supermoto is an intergral part of this awesome event. How recently have you seen supermoto bikes and quads on tv, on billboards, onthe radio advertising and in the newspaper? For this event, you will! You mayeven end up in the newspaper.



This year's event is being held from July 21-July 23.Thursday is a practice day, Friday is practice and ever popular team race,Saturday is race day.



The WHR crew is amped up to make the track even better thanyears before. This year we will be running the track in the opposite directionand since the "urban crossover" was such a big hit we are bringing itback again this year.



In addition to the Supermoto event, there will be plenty ofother activities to keep everyone entertained. The Free Style MX crew will beon hand and hanging it all out with their huge air and wicked stunts. Word hasit that Keith Sayers will be jumping something that has never been attempted beforeon Saturday night. The custom street bike parade is returning - live bands,street vendors and all kinds of fun things to do are going to be on tap. Oh,and lets not forget the Monster Truck rides, high diving acts, BMX and more.Butte knows how to put on a festival and there is always a surprise or two. Besure to get this on your schedule – we are all looking forward to seeing you inButte July 21 through the 23rd. .

Not much talk about EK days, who all is going? I plan on attending hoping I am not the only one, only 3 people pre-registered.

Well just found out my water pump is leaking out of the weep hole
Not sure how this will play out, hopefully a shop will have some seals in stock. On a side note, if you are going to pull coolant out for a race, don't just put water back in without some sort of wetter or track safe additive:rant:

I really recommend getting a new impeller shaft while you are at it. I had the same issue when I got my 426, and new seals didn't cure the problem. I had to replace the shaft and no problems since. Pretty easy to source, they had mine in stock.

Good luck to you that are going, I am holding out hope that I can go next year.
