"All East Coast Riders,

We've only had about seven [moto] entries for this years Rally West Virginia and I wanted to reach out see if there is any reason(s) more riders haven't entered. Let me know if there is anything we can do to help. Call me at the number below if you want to talk.

Early entry is over June 20th.

Last year there were 13 competitors. Anybody else care to speculate? Is it price? Schedule? Normal procrastination?
Unfortunately for me it was a $$$ thing. We're about to move and finances are super tight. I was on the fence about entering anyhow as I wouldn't be competitive, but I am in that area of WV at least a few times a month during warm months, and literally every weekend during ski season, so it's like a second home to me and I just wanted to ride. I think this whole rally scene is awesome because of the grassroots feel, but I know ALOT goes into planning/executing these events, so with the $400-500 price tag (depending on when one enters), I still feel it's a VERY fair price. I just couldn't squeeze it into the budget this year.

Will definitely be there to watch/support/crew/etc!
