Proceeds to Benefit Children in Need
LOUDON, N.H. – New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) and ProRider 603 are joining forces to host an all-new event to kick off Motorcycle Week at NHMS June 9-11. The Top Cop for Kids Motorcycle Skills Challenge presented by Laconia Harley-Davidson will put the region’s finest motorcycle riders to the test to see who has what it takes to be named Top Cop. Proceeds will benefit children in need throughout New England through the New Hampshire Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities (SCCNH), the official charity of the speedway.
“We are excited to kick off the 100th Laconia Motorcycle Week Rally with this new event to showcase the incredible skills of officers from throughout the region,” said New Hampshire Motor Speedway Executive Vice President and General Manager David McGrath. “As a motorcycle rider myself, I am always working to improve my skills on my bike, and I certainly appreciate the level of talent these officers have. Spectators will be amazed seeing what these guys can do on two wheels.”
Two Timed Courses for Police, Expert, and Novice Riders
ProRider 603 will set up two timed courses, designed to test accuracy and speed, for three divisions of riders – police, expert civilian and novice civilian. One course will be designated for police and expert riders while the second course will be for novice riders. There will also be a fun course open for any licensed motorcycle rider to attempt.
“We are ecstatic to host and judge this national skills challenge with the New Hampshire Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities,” said ProRider 603 Owner and Marketing and Sales Director Michele Cole. “With 90,000 square feet of courses and a fun park, this event it sure to be one not to miss.”
Timed Courses Open Friday and Saturday for Practice
The timed courses will be open Friday and Saturday, June 9-10 for practice with the timed challenge and trophy presentation taking place on Sunday, June 11.
“We’re always working hard to come up with new enjoyable ways to raise more money for children in need in our community,” said Speedway Children’s Charities New Hampshire Chapter Director Danielle Cyr, who also serves as New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s Director of Marketing. “This event will be a lot of fun for spectators, and the best part is the proceeds will go towards the grants we distribute at the end of the year to various nonprofits that focus on helping children throughout New England.”
Registration is $50 per rider for the timed courses and $10 per rider for the fun course. Riders can sign up for the fun course in person on the day of the event, but are strongly encouraged to register for the timed courses in advance, as spots are limited.
