Poker Run Series

Welcome to the NMA Poker Run page.  The Poker Run series is a family fun series.  Poker Runs are a fun ride over a marked course with checkpoints along the way where you draw a playing card, there are five such checkpoints.  The rider with the highest Poker Hand takes first place!  Just a fun reason to ride your bike and come home with prizes.  Bring the whole family and increase your odds!  These are family friendly events, bring the kids and ride with them.

The Poker Run series takes the fun one step further, for every Poker Run you enter, you earn a point in the Poker Run Series.  At the end of the series, we have drawings for some fantastic prizes, including a $2500 grand prize!

We hope to see you at the first event of the year.  Help us make the 2016 series the best series ever!

If you have suggestions to make the series better or to stand out from the pack, we would love to hear from you.

2016 Poker Run Series is now in the History Books!

With the 2016 Poker Run Series Awards Event held at Adventure Motorsports in Monroe Washington the cap was put on another great year of riding.   Participants enjoyed dining on Salmon (the Cajun Seasoned was the most Popular), crab and Lasagna. The big winner for the year was Tyra Stout who took home the $2500 first place prize.

I have certainly enjoyed being the chairman of this series for the last 6 years, had a lot of fun and met a lot of great people.  I couldn't have done it without my co-chair, Dave Overfield.  Even after Dave moved to Arizona, he continued to support the series.  I announced earlier this year that this would be my last year, family commitments just made it impossible for me to do the quality job that you all expect and deserve.  I'm going to miss it.  On the positive side, I'm happy to announce Jeff Mortzheim has agreed to take over the series and the NMA executive board has approved.  That being said, you can look forward to the series continuing and I'm sure Jeff will put his own spin on things providing some new and different opportunities for you.

I will continue to support the NMA in another capacity, you just won't see me at every event anymore.  Dirt bike riding is in my blood, my dad rode before me and my kids after me.  I first started when I was still in diapers, going to off road events with my dad and riding on the steel tank of his old Yamaha!

Enjoy the sport and don’t forget to support the people who support our sport.  Thank you again for a great chapter in my life, we’ll see you in the dirt.
