Tri-County ATV was formed in December of 2000 by a like-minded group of individuals looking to develop a safe, responsible, and fun place to enjoy ATV riding. The first year Tri-County was able to put on their very first organized poker run with the use of some privately owned property. The first event had its share of challenges, using a setup pavilion tent as a starting point, kitchen area, and registration stand. Of course, the weather that day was no bargain either, it was in the mid forties and rainy. Overall the event was a success.
From there Tri-County began it's search for a piece of lease property to start developing the idea this small group of individuals had. It was only a few short months and the newly formed club was able to develop a relationship with several land owners that were willing to assist. The next year allowed them to put on three more events and in the spring of the following year, Tri-County got the break it was looking for. One of the land owners worked out a deal that would allow them to start developing their own club pavilion. From this point forward, Tri-County ATV was under way. The work on the pavilion started in early March and the initial plan was completed by the end of the month.
Tri-County would then start the development of a trail system and held three events that year at its new club grounds. Over the next year there was the addition of a kitchen facility to the pavilion and the continued development of a trail system. After each event, the club looked to develop new ideas to improve the club grounds. One of the new ideas was to build a drag strip and pulling track for the club. It was not long that an individual was hired to grade the new track area. The track was graded, and the first pulling event was held in November of 2003.
