2010 DJSA Race Schedule
From the desk of Jim Lambert:
I am posting this prematurely but everyone wants dates and I know Chat and team is trying to get the Freedom ride scheduled. Never before have I had to put so much work into the schedule. Numerous date changes have come up trying to bounce around Parker, Socal Enduros, Holiday Weekends, a Schrocket Wedding!!!, World Finals, and the always sacred - Mother's Day. (Yes Ladies its true - we are steering around Mom's Day so that you can enjoy "your day" at home instead of being at the lake hating me!)
5 new venues equals 15 additionally insured parties to the already 20 listed additionally insured parties, so the paperwork chore has been grueling but I appreciate your patience. The amount of work all this takes has made me realize one thing... this is the last year I can do this, so lets make it a great year to always look back on. Yes thats right - this is the last year I can do this. Next year I have to hire an assistant so make sure you fill those start lines so I can afford to hire one of the Hooter's Girls to do all the leg work.... (no pun)
We were going to run an 11 race series, and then it dropped down to 10, but I really hate going backwards and only because you guys like to race, and if and only if I can BEG the staff to put up with me... you can look for
12 point series races,
4 100 mile enduros,
a junior race clinic and junior match slalom showdown,
RC car racing at Jet Effect,
a TBM race clinic for the "grown up kids",
5 freestyle battles,
8 550 all out exhibition races,
and depending on how things go -
a possible stadium race or the Norcal-Socal Shootout Rematch at San Luis Reservoir at the end of the year.
(It will be one or the other)
The bad news? We lost Oakley as a race site due to the explosive number of standups we saw last year. Chris's docks just can't take the strain of all those skis and without a beach to pit on we're going to have to do without seeing that cool looking bridge in the background. I always looked forward to the Oakley race but when I can afford portable docks we'll make it a point to return there.
Because you guys like beach starts so much, and because beach starts will play an important part of keeping things fair in the 550 all out races, we're going to be running at a few more lakes where all you guys with those new toy hauler rv's can enjoy your investments...
This schedule is firm, but as always it is subject to change based on my employer's directive. We will be racing primarily on Sundays based on my current work schedule and to those who have a long drive home after racing - my sincere apologies. We will make it work the best we can for everyone.
Here are the dates.
Just keep in mind - this schedule is subject to change but if changes do come up, I will notify you as quickley as I can.

The pre-season day on 3/28/10 will include lots of hot lap practice by class followed by individual time trials also by class. I have some riders on the verge of moving up a class and I need to see where everyone is at. Although it is not a series race, I would appreciate your being there so we can get roster information out of the way and have a good idea of who is running what class this year. Plus, these time trials will set your startline position for race-1. After the time trials, we'll be running Austrailan Pursuits for every class - and the last man (or girl) standing will go home with a little bling for their efforts.
First series race of the season? April 11th and as always it will be good for double points. I think we're gonna have some fun this year and I can't wait to see you all. Please watch the sites for some changes taking place this year.
More coming soon
