395 Cycle Park

January 26th 1975


What has two arms, two legs, two wheels, one head covered with stars, stripes circles and names, subsists on a concoction of gasoline and oils, wails like a wounded banshee and is usually covered with layers of mud, dirt, and advertising? If you guessed motocross racers-you are right.  Read More...

CMC at Saddleback Park

CMC has got to have the best racing around. A super-prepared track, extra large Grade A turnout of riders, and a $1,500 purse helped keep things that way. With such a large purse there was an ample turnout of Experts. It looked like the Who's Who of Southern California racing. Jim Weinert, Jim West, Rex Staten, Gary Semics, Tommy Croft, Gary Jones, and Gaylon Mosier-just to name a few. The 250 class had to run qualifiers due to an unexpected 48 rider turnout. Read More...

Contrary to what alot of racers thought, the OCIR track was not a mudbath. I almost didn't van out to the race tonight because I kind of thought that it would be rained out myself. So then I got the brilliant idea to call up the racing office at (714) 559-0580, when the recording said some thing like "The track looks fine tonight for AMC racing" well then I knew that things were cool. But for all you racers who ever have doubts of whether or not there is going to be a race just call the all new HOT LINE that the Southern California Motocross has now at (213) 762-MOTO. Read More...

Lawrence of Irwindale did it again! The YMBB Lawrence, however, had to do it the hard way tonight. Running second to Rob Zamora in the first moto, Mark waited until the last lap and the last corner to make his pass, and did it going around the outside of Zamora to take the win. That was to be Mark's best finish of the night. Moto two found Mark and his Crown Cycle Yamaha flip flopping around on the ground with four of five other bikes and riders about fifty yards out from the starting gate. Mark's brake handle was busted off and unrepairable, but he rode motos two and three, making the restart in moto two, and finishing second to the win of Doug Anderson, ending up the night getting third in the final moto behind Vince Van Hook and third moto winner, Lance Bryson. When you consider that Mark rode the final two motos without front brakses, that ain't too shaggy a showing for the YMBB. I'm not sure if this win puts Mark into the Expert Pro category, but if it doesn't, he's so close that the next win will surely do it. When you leave the 125 Intermediate class, you get in with those, literally screaming, time-bombs, that are the 125 Pros. Read More...
