GLEN DANIEL, WV (WOAY) – The Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro finished up it’s round held in Glen Daniel, and there were hundreds of spectators that camped out there over the weekend.
Hidden Valley’s outdoor venue was chosen for the fourth time by Kenda to host a round of the Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro. Over the weekend, Hidden Valley let people set up camp and spectate the races over the course of two days. Owner of Hidden Valley Rhonda Calloway says in that timeframe, hundreds of people were at the venue at any given time.
“The weekend’s been great, we’ve been blessed with safe racing all weekend. We’ve had a huge crowd. We broke their record, we definitely have broke our Hidden Valley record for audience, but we broke Kenda’s record this year,” Calloway said.
According to Calloway, people from all over the United States, and even people from outside the country visited Hidden Valley to watch and participate in the races.
“I love seeing familiar faces because I know we have our community support. But when you meet people that just traveled in and that they do this and they tell you how much they just love your venue, it’s awesome, there’s people from everywhere.”
Calloway also says that the out-of-staters coming in are a huge help for their family-owned business. One spectator came all the way from Texas to watch the races.
“I love it, it’s really cool. Especially this event. It’s really fun, it’s laid back. It’s a good community where everybody helps each other out and everybody’s smiling and having a good time,” she said.
Hidden Valley says Kenda deciding to come to West Virginia to host one of their races has likely been a huge boost to the local economy. The races concluded this evening at 4.PM and the next races in the Enduro series will take place in August in Young Harris, Georgia.
