De Anza Cycle Park

May 25th 1974

AMC at Orange County International Raceway

As the sun set slowly in the west and the bright lights luminated the track, it was thirteen action packed races at Orange County. The ambulance left only once tonight, it seems that riders weren't the only thing flying over the jumps, old man Stork decided to visit motocross as the mother-to-be headed for the hospital. Now that's what I call a devoted fan! Read More... 


Viewfinders Grand Prix



The start. This was where many a race was won or lost. Here, the Old Timers make their move for the inside line as they go into the sand wash. If you didn't get a perfect start, it was dust city.

Viewfinders at Indian Dunes

The Seventh Annual Viewfinder's Grand Prix is now history. For another year, one of the four remaining classics is over, as the action was hot and heavy again. It is really too bad that the only "classics" left are the Viewfinders, Four Aces, the OCMC Great Bear, and Hopetown. All four of these races are really more than just that, it is like a commune of motorcycling for thousands. And that is one thing that I will say that almost everyone did: have fun. The big GP's are really the most enjoyable races, as motocross riders, desert folk, and all other forms of motorcyclist make this one. In fact, one rider, Greg Humber, rides just the Viewfinders GP and Hopetown; and Greg used to be a top 125 Expert. These events are something special. Read More...

This Sunday dawned just like the last few Sundays have, overcast and cool. One of those days when all the photographers were just sitting around watching the races. After about five or six motos, things began to look better. The sun started to peek through the clouds; coats and jackets began to come off and things started to look more like a CMC event. The girl watchers began to perk up as more and more good looking bods came out. Read More...
