BINGHAMTON, NY, AUGUST 15, 2010
Hurd Motorsports, promoters of the beautiful Broom-Tioga Sports Center, hosted a round of the Tri-State Quad Series on August 15th. Mother Nature did not cooperate and the forecast kept many quad racers from attending. The Unadilla National was being held the same weekend and that too may have contributed to the very low turnout of riders.
