MXPTV will be at the Diamondback MX facility at the foot of the Catskills in East Durham, New York for their annual Dealer Shootout and Catskill Amateur National event. Saturday afternoon's Dealer Shootout is truly a unique event that involves some quite different tasks and races that make a good break from the normal weekend racing. Last year, there were foot races, joker lanes, and many other fun mini-events. This is also a great way for local dealers to get in the mix and grab the Dealer Shootout award for their dealership for the next year. CLICK HERE to see the teams who already signed up for the Dealer Shootout this weekend! Sunday's Catskill Amateur National will feature lots of race action to showcase the top Metropolitan Sports Committee (MSC) racers in the upstate New York area. This race is the 2nd to last round of 2016 MSC season so riders will be looking to finish strong on their race season. Make sure to make it to Diamondback this weekend!
