Hidden Trails Motorsports celebrates with racers
For the past three seasons, Hidden Trails Motorsports, of Charleston, West Virginia, has hosted an annual racer party open to all competitors, families and friends, to celebrate the Pro Watercross National Tour.
“We have long been a supporter and sponsor of the Pro Watercross National Tour,” said Trey Frame, president at Hidden Trails Motorsports (HTM). “Deciding to host the racer party was an easy choice for us. I have been around the sport for many years. My brother Cameron and I have had some success as racers, but I guess it’s just a way for us to give back to the sport of PWC racing.”
Pro Watercross National Tour?:

Anyway, article includes:
“Every year we’ve tried to up the ante for the racer party. We put some thought into it and wanted to focus on something that would really excite the competitors. Racers always need a way to travel around the pit areas, either by ATV, UTV or bicycle,” said Frame. “Earlier this year we took on selling Haibike performance e-bikes, which are basically electric assist performance mountain bikes.”

During the party, four names were drawn, and the four racers competed for the Haibike, racing head-to-head on the Hot Wheels racetrack in the dealership. “It ended up being a really cool aspect of the event, and I think everyone enjoyed it,” said Frame. “Sammy Nehme, one of the tour’s standout Junior Ski racers, won the bike. He was stoked, and we were stoked for him!”
