Black Star Distributing

West Virginia’s Finest

 This is the 3rd year in a row that the Black Star Motorsports team has been invited to take part in and guest judge the final round for the Swimsuit USA bikini contest at Quaker Steak & Lube.  Just letting everyone know we take our Bikini Contest Judging responsibilities very seriously.  We had a blast and all our sponsors were getting some great exposure.

the winner of the Hidden Trails / Black Star Race Edition Can-Am Commander 1000x!

Meet Dallas Carpenter, the winner of the Hidden Trails / Black Star Race Edition Can-Am Commander 1000x!   This raffle could not have been won by a more deserving young man.  Dallas actually had purchased his raffle tickets at the Dirt Track Expo at Hooters back in March.  A few nights before the final drawing, Dallas had wrecked his dirt track race car in a race in Ripley, WV.   After receiving my call about winning the grand prize, he thought his buddies were messing with him.  Classic!  Nothing like winning a wicked 1000cc monster to rip it up in the woods to put a huge smile back on your face.


Congrats Dallas!
