CSBA Day @ The Races

Welcome to the CSBA Day @ The Races! Established in the Spring of 2013, our track day program was instituted by Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter President John Lasure Jr. as an outlet to expand our outreach ministry and introduce more riders to controlled track day riding. We launched our inaugural track day event on June 11, 2013 with Absolute Cycle Experience, a local track day organization that handles all of the complex logistics of renting track time. Our first experience began with our arrival at the gate of New Jersey Motorsports Park where we met the staff from Absolute Cycle Experience, all of whom were extremely helpful in getting us prepared for our first event. As the day progressed, they continued to provide us with encouragement, support, knowledge, and suggestions to improve our track riding while ensuring that we were having a great time. Upon the conclusion of our first track day event, we were left with a very positive impression of the organization, their expert coaching, and track day format. This ensued in the development of a new relationship and Absolute Cycle Experience officially became the only track day organization to host our track day events going forward.

Since that first track day event we have continued to expand the venue and now hold at least one track day event a month during the warmer riding months (April through October).   During each event we set up a hospitality area to provide refreshments and informational materials to all the riders and guests who are attending that day. While we enjoy riding around the track testing the limits of machine and man, the most rewarding activity is getting to meet new and old friends to share a story, a prayer, a hug, and develop the strong bond of friendship with one another.

In our ever growing task to build on this venue, we support our continued vision of what the CSBA Day @ The Races mission is all about, which is "To enjoy a joyful spirit and fellowship with fellow riders, while always learning and testing our limits for this passion we have for two wheeled movement.  We shouldn't be afraid to test our limits as that's how true growth in anything is experienced".  If you have never done a track day, do yourself a favor and try to get in at least one session.   It will surely make you a better street rider.   The pace is yours to set; grab a partner and explore.   See you on the track soon!

Thanks again for everyone's support in our events and our efforts to continue to expand upon our CSBA Day @ The Races venue.   Remember to keep on eye on our schedule for all upcoming events and please come out to join us.
