SSM at Saddleback Park

I'm glad to report that today just happened to be one of the definte better saddleback races ever. I could tell that it was one of the biggest races as I viewed the projects while driving along Santiago road just before I entered the park. The may Pro racing was at its best and the many classes were considerably boosted because everyone wanted to get in tune for the NMA Mini-Cycle Nationals next Saturday and Sunday here at saddleback park. Naturally because of that huge race there will be no saddleback race but I will be here because I'm going to do the complete coverage of the race for SCM. Read More...

AMC Wednesday night racing is doing so well now that I believe that there are more people coming out than there were one Bette Lasker used to race on Fridays in the past. Tonight was no exception and it's great to see everyone getting back together at OCIR. I didn't think that it was going to be SCM reporters night but it looks like that's what it turned out to be. On the track and field besides myself was the Scene who covers the Carlsbad races, Danny Raymond who does the AMC at Rawhide events and Joel Jamieson who does the excellent CMC at saddleback coverage. Read More...

AMA at Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds

This year’s Hangtown was really a classic, in every sense of the word. The past two years this has been the race of races, with letter perfect weather. But this year Ma Nature opened up and didn't let loose until Sunday afternoon. When the skies finally cleared the rain and hail caused many an upset throughout the weekend. We rolled in Friday night to find the pits already almost full and the camp grounds quiet. Things got started early Saturday with the Sportsmen getting ready to race. Practice was sent out in shifts, hoping the track would dry. The two mile long track was the best around. It combined everything from water crossings, to jumps, bumps, whoops, and anything else imaginable. The track was a good test for the Sportsmen and an excellent racing surface for the Pros.  Read More...
