FROM THE ABA:

The American Bicycle Association (ABA) returns to Spartanburg, South Carolina and Supercross BMX for the 2011 Redline Cup East Finals. “We are pleased to be working with the Ben and Deb Bradner and the Spartanburg community on this great event. The facility is ideal for this race with a beautiful park setting, ample paved parking, nice spectator areas and a track that is going to be great, said John David, ABA Chief Operating Officer. “The Spartanburg Visitors and Convention Bureau assembled a great proposal and we look forward to hosting a great event in their city,” continued David. Additionally, the Supercross BMX track will be completely rebuilt in advance of the Redline Cup East Finals.

The Redline Cup East Finals will be held October 7 through October 9. The event will begin with a Friday night pre-race, followed by the Saturday and Sunday Redline Cup races. Riders will use their best qualifying score from one of the over 60 qualifying events held around the United States and Canada. The Redline Cup Finals are divided into three regions (East, Central, and West) with riders competing for trophies, number plates, and the jackets awarded to the #1 rider in each class. Trophies at the finals are given to each rider in the main event. Riders in each age group and class (novice, intermediate, expert) are eligible for number plates in their classes. Number plates are awarded to the top three (3) riders based on their finishes in the qualifiers and the Saturday and Sunday finals. The number 1 rider in each age group and class are awarded a Redline Cup Champion jacket.

If you have not raced in a qualifying race, it’s not too late. Riders can race in qualifying races in any region, but they must compete in the finals of their home region to earn a number plate or jacket. There are still twelve (12) qualifying races left before the Redline Cup East Finals. It only takes one race to get qualified.
