Do you ever get frustrated when you get blown into the weeds because your competition has the track wired? Does the same ol' track, week after week, ever bore you? So, what's new? Except, wow! Did CMC ever have something in store for the MX'ers at Carlsbad today!! The idea behind it all was to set up a TOTALLY different track. I mean TOTALLY Because of the week's rain and all, the Carlsbad GP course was too mutilated to prepare. The track looked like a soup bowl (hmmm, the Souper Bowl") and it looked pretty much unrideable. The Continental Motosport Club is well noted for running races RAIN or shine, without fail. Even if it means changing the track around a little bit, or in this case, all the way. The "European" Carlsbad was a gas, most of the riders liked the new layout. Many of them want to run it this way more often.  Read More...

With all the talk about 125's they say only the Honda can compete. Well don't let Gary Davis of Lompoc hear you say that, especially his dad. In the first moto of the 123 Juniors Gary on his Yamaha was out leading, but after a lap or two he seem to be slowing. Each time he went by it sounded like he would run out of gas on the straight-a-ways. He didn't stay in the lead too long but he did hang on to second throughout the moto. The second moto was different. Gary got the lead from the start and moved out to a commanding lead. Gary went on to win moto two and the overall win. It may not be too long before we may see Gary in with the Intermediates. A cnecH with Gary s mechanic (dad) I found why in moto one his bike was running sour. The carb. jets were filled with sand. I wonder where one would find sand?—everywhere! Read More...

Beautiful warm night air, a star filled sky as clear as a new Nikon lens, pits more crowded than Sears the day after Christmas and bitch-in' racing was what I wish could have happened at Indian Dunes last Friday night for American Motocross Enterprises' first night race of the new season. Instead, a grey and wet night, with a steady flow of rain, and a sky as clear as my Nikon lens were what riders were to come across as they entered Dunes. Oh sure, there were people out to race but the vast majority of them were Pros, all of whom were going for a piece of the $600 cash purse that AME was putting up. Thanks to the sand that Indian Dunes is known for, most of the water was soaked up and the track was not all that bad. Read More...

With threatening skies, many riders decided to stay home and one of the shortest rider entries in Irwindale history did the number. Sure enough, only four classes got to ride the normal three motos before the skies opened up and deluged the track. Read More...

Today was the day for mudders. Most of the time at Four Corners after some rain the track is in perfect shape, but this time there was too much rain and parts of the track was nothing but mud. Some of the riders really took a mud bath. Lars Larsson, who has more experience then any Open rider out here today, showed them how to ride in the mud. Larsson, on his Penton, led all the way 'till the last lap in the first race then shock problems happened. He was bottoming out which slowed him down allowing Chip Howell to slide his Husky around Lars and win moto one. Larsson was second and Kenny Frost riding a Penton for Poway Suzuki, took third after stalling in a water hole off the start.  Read More...

It was a bit slick this week to say the least. The best way to describe the track is from a rider's eye view, and since today marked my return to racing, I'll personally take you around today's mudo-cross track. The starting area was in fine shape, as the water had not formed big mud puddles like everywhere else. It was traction plus all the way to the first turn. Once you got there, it was a whole other story. The usual line through the first corner is tight and to the inside, but with today's sloppy conditions, the only thing there was foot deep mud. So one ingenious rider went tight to the fence and rode up on the grass, then dropped back onto the track on the up hill straight, thus, missing most of the mud.  Read More...
