Sequatchie, TN (July 14, 2017) – The 2017 Kenda Tennessee Knockout, presented by Moose Racing and SRT Offroad, will again include a separate Women’s class to compete on Saturday. Women entries will ride a morning qualifier race that they must complete in order to race the Women’s only, multi lap main event on a special short course in the afternoon.

The ladies will be competing for a $1,000 purse to be paid out to the top three finishers ($500, $300, $100 for first second and third respectively). In addition, the top three finishers will be invited to compete in the Sunday expert Knockout program.

Rachael Gutish has dominated the TKO Women’s race the past two years but Beta’s Morgan Tanke has already confirmed that she will be attending for the first time. Like Gutish, Tanke is a multi-time EnduroCross main event winner and both have proven capable of competing at the top level of tough off-road events, even competing against the men.

Women riders can still enter by contacting the Trials Training Center.
