I really want to run my 3 digit ABA number again. A few of us at our local track want to go back to 3 digits. I like the idea of having the same number every year. But, I don't want to get DQ'd for running the wrong number.

The ABA could make a few bucks by opening this up for us Ams. Maybe a small fee like $25 bucks to have a computer entry made so you can run your 3 digit?

Thoughts?

I got a new plate every year anyway and you dont have to get a new plate just get new numbers for a grand total of $2.

I thought you could tell them basically whatever number you wanted. I mean when i raced we just changed to whatever we got in district the year before. I can remember signing up for nationals and them asking what number is on my bike, I just figured that meant if I told them 725 thats what they would put into thier scoring for the event. Of course things change after 15-20 years too (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

I raced my 3 digit NBL number at ABA races for years (national and local). I told them that I was running a different number when I registered. At locals it was never a problem, but at Nationals they would allways tell me to make sure I changed it next time.

I believe he is Talking about monies for USABMX not for the guys who make the plates.
I think it's funny how so many people try to get those low numbers. I pay no attention to them. I have seen many racers running single digit district plates that never win a moto or main. Not saying they are bad, just not as good as the number. They just race 2-3 times or more per week. My kids and I only get to race 1-2 times a month.

I think it should be optional to run your card number if you want. What if I want my son's number on his jersey. Should I have to get a new jersey printed every year to show a basically meaningless district number?

$2 if you are running two bikes. If you have spare electrical tape at the house, the ones are easy to make too.

As a TO the kids at my track look forward to the new numbers.
