First-time participation was key to success ATV Mini Quad Contingency Showcase
Morgantown, WV – The first-ever Mini Quad Contingency Showcase awarded almost 100 percent of participants in the 2007 ATV Dirt Days held at Loretta Lynn's Ranch. Actually, "Only 3 children that were registered did not show up," said Frieda Rozelle, a coordinator of the program. The purpose was to reward mini quad racers, the future of the sport, with special contingency prizes and awards. The welcome banner listed every sponsor "I think it went great," said Bobbie Havert, another coordinator of the program. "The kids seemed happy with everything that they got. It was long, but we had so many items; there was a lot of stuff. I think we're kind of waiting on feedback; we had talked about it with other parents to see what they thought, I think that they wanted to do something [next year]. Yeah, it was fun." The XTreme Pit Bike was big Wolfpack Racing assisted with event T-shirts, the brand new DRR Mini Quad priced at $2,500, with the Xtreme Pit Bike over $2,100 and the Maximum RPM gift certificates totaled $2,200. DRR's contribution was huge! "That was just three of the biggies," Frieda said. "We're still trying to get a total. "I think [the event] went fantastic," she continued. "Those youth sat on those bleachers so peaceful; they did so good. I was totally blown away; the response to this was unreal. We were going to try to get all the numbers. I do not have a total yet; there were just so many items." Youth gathered on the bleachers while numbers were called The amount of donations surprised the first-time event, and next year is already in the planning stages. "There were things coming in at Loretta's from people that didn't confirm, but there were packages waiting for us," Frieda said. "That was a really big surprise. A lot of people told us: 'If you would have got to me earlier, I would have done a whole lot more,' and 'Keep us in mind for next year.' We already have people telling us things that they will donate next year. I think we had a good turnout; I think it's just going to get better. It was all for the youth. There are some things we've already been talking about to make it faster and better; it was just great; we are so happy. Wolfpack Racing provided the Loretta Lynn's Youth Quad National T-shirts "We were all so worn out, but it was worth every bit of it to see the look on their faces. A big thanks to everyone and how wonderful those kids were. I know it was hot—the heat was terrible. The main thing is just to make sure we thank everyone, and all the kids, I was so proud of every one of those children there. And I want to personally thank all of the companies that donated, because we couldn't have done it without them, and Racer Productions for everything." "Just look forward to next year; you think the prizes were good this year, they're going to be double the next!" The winner of the Xtreme pit bike was Jonny Loos, who took third in 70 Production CVT (6-11) with a 5-3. The DDR mini quad winner was Bobby Slevnik of the 90 Production Sr (12-15) class.
