    I'd assume we get another 15 racers. Putting the entrants at about 45 teams. Ironman's included. Them Stand up guys are bomb IMO. That's hardcore! Blood is starting to get boiled up for this race. This is going to be fun! Will someone finally become a 2 time MH 300 Champ?
    New 300x will be out, how will it do?
    Will the Yamaha Platform win this year?
    Will an Iron man win the overall?
    Will the race be won/lost in the pits?

    That's one of the most important aspects of this race; the pits. Strategy is everything in this race, and precious time can be gained, or lost, on a pit stop.

    The big question will be; will the flags on the London Bridge be limp, or standing straight out???

    Well, we have a SOLID pit crew. Won the Sea Doo challenge for pit team last year. We have the same core group back. Practices have been solid.

    As for the flags...Raised, or limp, does not matter to team #58. Ultra and Sea Doo is prepped, and ready for battle! Bring it on! Oh...Iflyems....Station yourself to the right looking north if your filming.. That's where the hole shot might come from!

    It'ss getting closer!

    Unfortunately, the super duper HD camera I bought with the intention of filming the Hahn this year, had "issues" and was returned. So, I will most likely be filming with a "Go Pro HD on a stick", and that's about it. Unless someone comes up with a really nice professional video camera I can use for the day+awards.

    Mark Hahn Memorial 300, 2011
    Hot Pits Race Rules

    The hot pits are located on the north beach at Crazy Horse Campground, and they start at the “boat house” (the only structure on the beach) and run west (towards California) and face north.

    They are enclosed by metal banner frames and access is limited to arm banded riders and arm banded crew members only.

    No one under 16 years of age is allowed in the hot pits (unless their parents have signed the waivers previously, and they are arm banded), and no smoking is allowed.

    No one is allowed into the pits that has not read and signed the waiver and been arm banded. Armbands issued after the start of the race can only be done at the DSM trailer and a $5 fee per arm band will be imposed. There is no charge for arm bands issued prior to the start of the race.


    All fueling and refueling operations must be performed only in the hot pits, and the rear most part of the boat must be at least 20 feet from the waters edge before any fuel is introduced. Please see the race notes for more details. These rules will be strictly enforced.

    The hot pits will open at 7 am
    (Arizona time) on race day. Your fuel must be stored at the rearmost fence line of the hot pit area but you may not set up any type of pit in this area. Your individual pits will be located along the beach to the west of the hot pits, and only in these, and only with the boat completely removed from
    the water may any work be performed, and no fueling of any type may take place other than inside the hot pits.

    The race will start from the hot pits, and all of this is the same as the previous races. The hot pits are shared, there is no exclusive property. Once your boat is launched your trailer must be moved immediately more than 20 feet from the edge of the water, so as not to be in any ones way. You may
    not wait for your boat with the trailer in the water for more than five minutes.
    Failure to observe these rules will result in penalties applied to the race boat involved. No pickups or full size vehicles are allowed in the pits.

    The hot pits are unfortunately “blow sand” and the traction is no better than previous years. We have tried everything imaginable (grading, watering, dragging, etc.) all with no favorable results. What works best is cooperation between the competitors and teams. You all have the same problem, and
    we ask that you work together as you did in the past. Sadly, we have no alternative to this situation as no other beach in the park is long enough to enable the removal of the boats required for fueling.

    You are welcome to bring along anything that you feel may help you get better traction, (chain link, etc.) however, you will be responsible to remove it after immediately after the event and take it away with you, plus it must be shared if it remains down in the sand after your boat has pitted. If you leave any material in the hot pits, or elsewhere on Crazy Horse property you will be fined. Everything must be removed completely from the site.

    Thank you,
    Race Committee
