BILLINGS – The Montana Bump ‘N’ Run racing association has been around for almost 30 years. It started in Roundup in 1989, but many around Billings don’t know it, with the series shifting farther East in recent years.
But Bump ‘N’ Run was back in Yellowstone County Saturday for the first race of their summer season. The series raced at the MORE Racing Complex near Duck Creek. It’s an obstacle-laden dirt course – with four different classes that run each race day. This is the third year Bump ‘N’ Run has made a stop in Billings. It’s a small community – but a passionate one that keeps these guys on the track.
“I’ve always told myself for the last seven or eight years that if I’m not having fun in the car, I’m gonna park it,” said Bump ‘N’ Run president Casey Schladweiler. “Sometimes I question that because I have rough stretches where things go wrong with the car or I don’t get the finishes I think I should have. You have just got to go back and think about it before you make a rash decision.”
The series continues next Saturday in Baker, and returns to Billings on September 8th.
