Wildhorse Pass Motorsports Park Summit ET Racing Series

ET Motorcycle Category

The two-wheel competitors at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park have two ways to attack their competitors. Racers can opt for a full-tree (commonly referred to as the 0.500 three-amber sportsman tree) or Pro Tree (0.400 pro tree). Racers compete against others with the same tree (so full tree vs full tree) and (pro vs pro) until there is a winner in each. The final is a split tree, with the full tree ‘finalist’ racing against the ‘pro tree’ finalist. Super Pro rules apply in this category – including NHRA Competition License requirements for motorcycles quicker than 9.99.
