Last year at our final Canaan event we had a fantastic time with our Northeast Dealer Challenge. Next year we are going to have a complete 3 event series to crown the 2018 Champion - this is going to be a blast!

This dealer challenge series is run in the spirit of teamwork and fun. It is seamlessly woven into our Sunday track days at Canaan, with the "races" run between 12:00-1:00pm each day and the award ceremony taking place during the lunch break that immediately follows. All are welcome!!
Teams may consist of up to 5 riders. Each team must have one dealership employee (preferred, but not mandated, to ride each weekend) The best 4 finishers of each event will score points towards the Team Challenge Championship cup. Each team may have one "sub" each weekend if needed. Deadline for notifying Penguin about a sub is 10AM on the day of the event.
Points will be awarded in proportion to the number of riders who start each race, with bonus points for finishing 1st (3 points), 2nd (2 points) or 3rd (1 point). For example, in a class with 12 entries, the first place finisher would get 15 points and the 12th place finisher would get 1 point. Riders must complete 1 lap in order to score points.
Penguin may, at it's sole discretion, assign riders to the class that is deemed most appropriate for any individual rider.
The max number of riders in a class is 20. Should there be more than 20 entries in any one group, that class will be split into "Big Bike" and "Small Bike" divisions and those divisions will be scored separately.
A Division: Expert Level Racers
B Division: Amateur & Novice Level Racers
C Division: Street Bike riders - non licensed
Former racers will be placed in the class deemed most appropriate. If you have been out of racing for 4 years or less, you will generally be placed in the class that you were most recently licensed for. If your absence from active racing has been 5 years or more, you will generally be dropped down one division. Important: in the "C" Street Bike division, there is a focus on fun and aggressive passes are strongly discouraged.
