Piston’s Wild Motorsports was established in early February 2007 and was accepted into the Pacific Northwest 4-Wheel Drive Association- Region 3 shortly thereafter. At that time, we were just 3 members strong with lofty goals and impossible dreams. We are pleased to announce that in just three short years, we now have 22 active family memberships and 7 new applicant members - with all of that much needed support our goals are quickly becoming accomplishments and the dreams are morphing into reality...
We choose to introduce ourselves as a new breed of club, not just interested in 4x4’s, dirt bikes, ATV’s or snowmobiles – but, rather, we love all forms of motor sports equally and strive for involvement with a well-rounded schedule of activities for all of our members and guests to enjoy. This part of the country is a long way from Detroit or even Indianapolis, but our love of piston driven power is a strong as anywhere!
Our club motto is: “Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming . . . WOW – What a Wild Ride! ”
What we look for in potential new members, are folks like us, who enjoy spending their free time in the motor-sports world:
- off-road trips on the mountain, in the woods or at the beach
- participating in various competitive events
- attending motor sports events as spectators
- promoting motor sports events for others to attend
- attending social gatherings with fellow motor heads
We also get involved, when necessary, with government agencies, to ensure that all outdoor motor sports will still be accessible for many years to come right here in the Pacific Northwest.
Over the past 3 ½ years, we have been working closely with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources – Pacific Cascade Region, in regards to opening 4x4 trails in the Yacolt Burn Forest Area as well as improving the overall recreation experience for all motorized sports enthusiasts. We feel confident that progress is being made towards the Yacolt Burn becoming a “destination of choice” for 4-wheeler’s as well as ATV and dirt bike enthusiasts. We have attended many meetings and have been on multiple rides with DNR representatives in the Yacolt Burn discussing opportunities for 4x4 trails. We have also been on trail rides with DNR management to take them to some of the best active 4x4 multi-use areas in the area. This is an effort to show them how the 4-wheel drive community can be not only a user of the forest but an asset to the management agency responsible for the stewardship of the land.
Piston’s Wild Motorsports . . . What a Wild Ride!
