The event planning gods must have clashed in the clouds months ago when they scheduled the weekend of September 11 for their events because pretty much everything is going on this weekend.
First and foremost, this Sunday is the fourth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks. Salute the flag or something and just remember those who lost their lives and what they died for....
So anyways.... The fourth stop of the Dew Action Sports Tour is in San Jose, CA and the whole Freestyle event is taking place on Saturday, practice, prelims and finals...everything. Twitch is sitting comfortably with second place points so far and is looking to steal some points from cp Kenny and get that championship and a huge ass check. etnies own TP (not Pastrana), Todd Potter will be there trying to get past the prelims this time. Todd is in 20th place overall.
The Dew Tour will be on NBC and USA network so check your local listings for TV times.
Primm is a little town right off highway 15 on the Nevada side of the CA/NV state line, occupied only by three huge hotel casinos, a couple gas stations, a fashion outlet and miles of open desert; it's the perfect home for an off-road race, the SCORE Primm 300. There is plenty of open desert for racing, gas for the cars, A/C rooms to passout in, and casinos with stocked bars for all the debauchery anyone could ask for. Cameron Steele’s Desert Assassins race team will be on hand causing most of the trouble and racing their #16 Trophy Truck while smashing in the bumpers of any competition in the way. Come check it out if you can, it’s insane.
SMD Motorsports is holding a charity silent auction at Primm to benefit those affected by Hurricane Katrina. etnies is bringing a bunch of shoe certificates to auction off.
The other moto event and the biggest overall event of the weekend is the 2005 AMA Motocross Championship finale from Glen Helen Raceway on Sunday. 100,000+ fans converge on this track for the final stop of the 12 round series. Mike Brown was at the etnies office today picking up some fresh kicks and some clothes for him and the fam. Watch out for Brownie this weekend, Glen Helen is one of his favorite tracks and he's ready to end the season on a high note. The etnies trailer will be somewhere in the camping area on the hill so stop by and say wazzzz uppp! I will be there to shoot photos and hang out on Sunday after the Primm race so look for some new photo galleries and tons of new desktop wallpapers sometime next week.
Also, the ASR trade show is in San Diego. Don’t worry, you’re not missing much (most of our rider will be at the event mentioned above anyway) but if you feel left out I’m sure there will be all kinds of after hype stuff next week with news posts and photo galleries of “cool” guys and hot chicks in skimpy clothes. Ooooh I can’t wait…
What the he!L are you blog nerds doing this weekend???
