Shadyside is a nice setup out in the country, use to go all the time on Thursdays and watch them run. If there's anyone around the Upstate of SC and wants to go I'll be riding my scoot from Spartanburg that day. I now the back roads through the country of Gaffney to get there. Just make sure you have your helmet cause NC is strict about them. If any of you guys have any fliers made up I'd love to pass them around to get a good turn out and make this prosper down south. E-mail it to ma at thetireguy420@gmail.com and I'll print them up. any way I can help I'll be glad to, wont be racing but also willing to help out at the event for free or for some swag. :P

At least you didn't sell a bunch of parts off of your race bikes like I did mine! :) I can still race it, but it'll be a kick scooter. :P

Presented by GY6 Store.com
Hosted by Scooter Invasion.net


Welcome to the first annual NASRA Spring Nationals,

This year, with the help of our sponsors, we are hosting the Spring Nationals in Shelby, NC!
We will be competing in both bracket and heads up drag racing. For everyone else we’re also hosting a Custom Show, Swap Meet, and Burnout Contest open to all attendees.

Friday night is test and tune night at the dragstrip. It’s a great way to get some practice in before the big race. Free onsite camping and I hear the guys from Scooter Invasion has some cool stuff planned for us. If camping isn’t your thing there are plenty of hotels in the area also. You can still ride over and get in on the action. It’s bound to be a great time.

Hopefully the southern location will bring out some of these beast mode scooters we’ve been hearing about. Looking at you Florida & East Coast.

Let’s race!

We have a grill lined up to carry down with us to the drag strip on Friday. One of my good scooter friends will be helping with all of that. We're thinking burgers and fries or chips, maybe some hot dogs. Still have the gears turning on that, but it's sure to be a good time.

Can't wait for the race!

My opinion, that would be better then the food they have there unless you like chicken sandwiches which are pretty good. But the grill sounds awesome.

Piedmont dragway has a little cafe type thing too, and the food is pretty much the frozen /reheated food you'd expect to find at a typical sporting event. Hopefully we can top that. :)

I'm trying to get a lot of my local guys interested! I also hope to get the new owner of this GY6'd Ruck out there: http://forum.scooterinvasion.net/viewtopic.php?p=39073

I printed up some copies of the pic you posted and been putting them up at bike and scooter shops around Spartanburg to try and get some more rides up there and plus to show that there's a lot more you can do to these rides. I hope it helps and can't wait for April to get here, Just sucks I have to work Friday but I'll be there first thing Saturday morning.

Electric Scooters

Postby ICE-Killer » Mon Feb 10, 2014 7:41 pm

Are electric scooters allowed to race in this event? If so what class do they fall under. I have a 49cc Yamaha Vino that I have converted to electric and would like to race at the spring nationals in Shelby NC if possible.

Sounds like a cool bike! unfortunately there is no class for electric scoots...and the 50cc classes don't allow motor swaps... and generally "outside the box" builds are highly scrutinized...

You mean like the build on that banner D?

Oh, its ok to run em...
In a class with a 400-700cc limit.

I think electrics would be cool really. Its an up and coming mode of scooting for sure! If you could come up with a couple few more of those they might open a class?
The CVT is seriously underestimated by some!

I think the electric scooter idea is awesome! Check out this one:
http://www.maxiscoot.com/en/custom/acdc-racer/

As far as NASRA, the outside the box builds seem to really just fit into one category which is 400cc 2t twins or 700cc 4t twins. I'd be surprised if I saw anyone bring machines like that, but within the rules it's quite possible.

That said, if more people bring a style of bike or certain type of setup, I don't think it'd be hard to get a class of your own eventually. Surely "electric racers" are going to be a big part of our future of scootering and racing. I'd love to see more builds like yours come out! You should post some photos and such of the project in the scooterists showroom here on the forum. I'm really curious about the build - and on a lightweight Vino frame too! How cool. :)

So is it safe to assume that no one races in the 400/700cc class. What is the record for 1/8mile on a scooter?
