Hay Days 2017

October 4, 2017

The crew from FLY Racing was on site once again in North Branch, Minnesota for the annual Hay Days swap meet, snowmobile grass drags, UTV races, and freestyle exhibition. If you haven't been to this event yet be sure to add it to your calendar for next year!

To say that Walker Fowler’s season has been a dominant one is an understatement. Fowler clinched his third straight GNCC ATV championship with ten race wins despite the burden of building and managing his own private race team program. Congratulations Walker and team WFR on your amazing 2017 season!

At the age of eighteen, Josh Strang left his native Australia and moved to the United States to pursue his dream of racing dirt bikes. Ten years later, Strang is still racing offroad in the U.S. at the highest level as a member of the Factory Husqvarna offroad team. In part one of this three-part series, Josh reflects on his childhood growing up in Australia around dirt bikes, his move overseas, and the difficulties of establishing his racing career in a foreign country.

"Many off-roaders think conservationists are all "tree-huggers"... and many conservationists think off-roaders are all "tree-killers." But somewhere in between there is a sweet spot where forests are appreciated and cared for. In the case of the Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area (AOAA), that sweet spot might even help to reinvigorate a local economy." – PlantsAreCoolToo

"Before Zach won the championship we got a chance to spin some laps on his bike. Test rider Nick Evennou got the day with the bike at Perris Raceway (after getting rained out in Florida at Baker's Factory). Nick was a racer when the 250F machines first started hitting the track, and he was impressed with how far the factory machinery has come." – Dirt Rider Magazine
