Host: Eric Baker/No Fear
Location: Carlsbad Raceway
Palomar Airport Rd and Melrose, Carlsbad, CA
When: Monday, January 1, 8:00am to 12:00pm
This is the first (and most likely the last) Annual minibike race at the most famous motocross track in the world to honor the late Marty Moates in the way he would have wanted it. Unsanctioned, illegal and otherwise improbable, we will wave the green starter's flag at 8:00 AM January 1, 2007. Stock pipes, 110CC maximum. We will also be erecting a "roadside" shrine to Marty on the top of Devil's Drop. Bring any photos or memorabilia that you would like to contribute to the shrine.
There will be a New Year's Eve Track Prep Party beginning Sunday, December 31st at 4:00 PM to Midnight. Bring shovels, rakes, stakes, track boundary banners, lanterns, flashlights and Bud Light. Park at the first building on the right as you travel north on Melrose, north of Palomar Airport Rd. It will be obvious from there. If anyone is traveling from out of town, you are welcome to crash at my house. Bring your own sleeping bags and pillows and I've got plenty of floor space two blocks from the track.
Does Carlsbad Raceway still exist? No, but the concrete start line (the gate has been dismantled), start straight, first turn, second turn (right hand sweeper), 2nd to last turn (gradual uphill right hand sweeper) and Devil's Drop are exactly the same as they were in 1980.
Come on out, race mini bikes and remember one of the greats!
