2020 now 2021 USCA RALLY, MENA, ARKANSAS

USCA was founded on being a supporting family oriented group for sidecar owners and their families.

The free Thursday night meal is sponsored by Texas Sidecar Company. There will be a donation bucket near the meal line to support the local children's charity CASA.  2020 was a rough year for the children of Mena, Polk County... and the rest of the country. 

Though you might not see the evidence in Mena, Polk County is one of the poorest counties in Arkansas. We have selected CASA to benefit from various rally activities, including the Thursday dinner.

If we registered in 2020 and ordered shirts, will we still get the t-shirts?

Excited about the rally!

Thanks,

Butch and Penney

 

Yes there will be Rally shirts for those who registered last year. Everyone who registered last year was rolled over to the 2021 Rally list. There will be a packet for you at check in with name badges, wristbands, rally schedule, area information, door prize tickets, Checkers chip and more...you will receive a 2021 rally shirt in the size you ordered at check in.  Only those who pre-registered last year or this year are guaranteed a rally shirt. 

More rally activities are being added daily. Several new sidecar tech sessions have been added to the schedule.  

We are getting number of requests from potential sidecar owners interesting in learning more about sidecars. They want to drop in for a day, see the rigs and ask questions of the owners. We welcome anyone who is interested in sidecars. Don't be surprised if strangers start asking you simple questions about your rig, where you got it,  how much you paid for it, etc.  We are not charging a rally fee for day visitors to walk around and look at the rigs. We encourage people to consider joining the sidecar community. You can best advise them on how to go about finding the right rig for them.

See you in Mena, bring the sunshine with you.

Jan: Is this on the list of activities for Mena?

DH, If you'll be my monkey.... there are some Mena area logging trails with more bumps and switchbacks than that track.  

Take a look at Charlie Mac's video from 2018 for a sampling of what to expect on the Domino Runs:

Nice video - thanks for posting.

Makes me even more bummed to be rig-less for the Rally. Can cars participate in Domino Runs😊

Only two weeks waiting remain till the start of the USCA National Rally in Mena, Arkansas. Come on and join the gang if you haven't signed up yet. It's not too late.

Sidecar Alignment by Texas Sidecar and Sidecar Suspension with Klaus are two Tech Sessions we have just added to the program. Here's your chance to see, meet, ask questions and get to know the people who are at the top of their game in the sidecar world.

If you have never been to a national rally, expect to be blown away by the diversity of rigs, expert knowledge walking around and friendly people of Arkansas. You will learn more about sidecars in a couple of days than what you learned on your own in a couple of years. Just by talking with other owners and asking questions.
