The NICA Al Race #2: The Crank Down in Tiger Town will be May 9-10 at Chewacla State Park.

Chewacla State Park's 696 scenic acres offer plenty of rest, relaxation and recreation, just a short drive from the Auburn-Opelika area. Facilities include a 26-acre lake, swimming area, playground, a modern campground, picnic areas with tables, grills, and shelters, cabins, hiking, and mountain biking trails.

The course at this park will use a combination of tight and twisty single track and wide dirt roads to test the racers' fitness and bike handling skills. The seemingly flat course is deceiving as the constant up/down results in 381 feet of elevation gain per HS lap. In addition, these trails offer a lot more ‘texture’ with roots, rocks and tight turns that require strong bike skills as well as a powerful set of legs. Spectators bring your noisemakers because as the trail meanders through the woods, there are several opportunities to see the race unfolding from your seats in the infield area. Don’t let the lap distances fool you, lap times on this course will be on par with other, longer courses this season.
