A Perfect Gift for Carlsbad Raceway Fans

SAN DIEGO, CALIF. (Dec. 18, 2015) – For 40 years, Carlsbad Raceway was a world famous U.S. racing icon. The track closed in 2004 and recently a group of Carlsbad fans joined forces to create a permanent Carlsbad Raceway Monument funded in part by sales of this limited-edition Carlsbad Raceway t-shirt.

From motocross to drag racing to sports cars and skateboarding, Carlsbad Raceway was a major fixture in the Golden Age of southern California action sports. For thousands of fans and athletes alike, Carlsbad Raceway’s memory continues to be celebrated around the world.

Own a piece of Carlsbad Raceway history. Thanks to The Road 2 Recovery Foundation, limited edition Carlsbad Raceway t-shirts can be purchased online for $31 each, with proceeds going toward the building of the Carlsbad Raceway Monument in 2016.

The World Famous Carlsbad Raceway Monument Project will remember this historic place by installing a permanent interpretive display overlooking the original site.

Toyota Tacoma Featured as Grand Prize in 2016 for RMFantasySX, the Fantasy Supercross Game by Rocky Mountain ATV/MC
 
PAYSON, UT (December 22, 2015) – After only two years, RMFantasySX has exploded in popularity. 2016 will be even bigger, with two significant additions. This year’s grand prize will be an all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma, taking the prizes to an unprecedented level. Also, the scoring system has been improved. Like last year, users who predict the top five riders (along with a wildcard) will be awarded points for each pick they correctly predict. For the 2016 season, however, five points will also be awarded for each picked rider who finishes in the top five but not in the exact position chosen. This rewards users who accurately predict top five finishes, even if they do not predict the exact order.
Over 46,000 Monster Energy Supercross fans participated in RMFantasySX during the 2015 season. Everything that made RMFantasySX great is back for the new season, and this year’s prizes are even better. With an all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma now being awarded as the grand prize, the 1st and 2nd place winners will be awarded with race-prepped Kawasaki KX™450F and KX™250F bikes, respectively. Other incredible top-10 prizes include:
·         Monster Energy Cup Red Carpet Getaway
·         Pirelli/JGR Experience (Including a Trip to the US MXGP)
·         Dunlop Tires for a Year
·         Alpinestars Gear and Casual Wear Package
·         DC Casual Wear Shopping Spree
·         Motion Pro Tool and Accessory Package
·         Tusk Impact Wheel Set
·         100% Goggle and Casual Wear Package
End-of-season prizes are provided for the contestants who score the most points over the entirety of the Monster Energy Supercross season. However, great prizes are also awarded every week for the top scorers in each round. This means that everyone has an equal opportunity to win weekly prizes, even if they join in the final round. In 2016, excellent brands like GoPro, Pirelli, EVS, FMF Apparel, 100% and more are all scheduled to provide weekly prizes.
“We’re happy to work with Rocky Mountain ATV/MC this year by offering the all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma as the grand prize for RMFantasySX,” said Sandy Salem with Toyota Engagement Marketing. “RM fantasy supercross adds excitement to an already high-energy sport. The chance to win a Tacoma is a great reason for fans to get even more excited for the new season!”
“To see how far RMFantasySX has come in just a few years is incredible,” said Dan Thomas, CEO and Founder of Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. “Everyone who plays it loves it, and we’re glad we can provide an exciting way for supercross fans to more fully engage in the sport. Of course, we couldn’t do it without all of our great sponsors.”
“Kawasaki is excited to partner with Rocky Mountain ATV/MC in their fantasy challenge during the 2016 Monster Energy Supercross season,” said Chris Bull, Vice President of Marketing at Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. “Year after year, the fantasy challenge has been a fun way to engage with consumers, and Kawasaki is proud to be part of it by offering fans the chance to win a 2016 Kawasaki KX™450F or KX™250F.”
RMFantasySX is currently open for registration at www.RMFantasySX.com. There is no cost to play. Picks will open on Sunday, January 3, at which time users may begin making their predictions for the first race in Anaheim on January 9.

Payment In Advance Only
This is a fun ride and not a race. You will be required to sign a release of liability of the club, it’s officers and volunteers

 

Registration For The Ridgecrest 2016 Ride Is Now Open
We will meet in Barstow Saturday morning January 23, 2016 at the large dirt parking lot along the driveway into the Ramada Inn. It is located on the north side of East Main Street just west of Interstate 15. Take the Main Street Exit in Barstow and turn left,  go over the freeway and turn right on the first street past the freeway and follow it back to the dirt parking lot.

 

We will email all registrants a link to the GPS tracks for the ride about 5 days prior to the ride date.

There are easy and hard way trails so all skill level riders can enjoy this ride. The easy way will be  approximately 125 miles and the hard way will be approximately 140 miles on Saturday.  Gas and lunch will be at 90 miles in Johannesburg. Both routes will include a tour of the Rainbow Basin Scenic Area, a couple of military aircraft crash sites and ancient petroglyphs. The easy way will be sandy and rocky in some areas but not grueling like the hard way options, which will contain lots of enduro quality single-track, steep hills, tight canyons, and ROCKS. The GPS tracks have nearly 500 points each so older GPS units that only take up to 250 points per track will be a problem.

On Saturday everybody rides track 1a to the Husky Monument and then the easy way riders ride 1ez to lunch in Johannesburg and all the way to the hotel in Ridgecrest. The hard way riders go 1a to the Husky Monument , then 1b to Johannesburg, then 1c to the hotel. On Sunday the easy way riders follow 2ez the entire ride to Barstow and the hard way riders follow 2a, 2b, and 2c to Barstow. Make sure only day 1 tracks are active and showing on Saturday and only day 2 tracks are active and showing on Sunday otherwise you will get lost because day 1 and 2 the tracks overlap.

We will be returning / staying at the Heritage Inn in Ridgecrest on Saturday night. Please call the Heritage Inn to reserve your room. Be sure to use the Group Code of BBTR16 to receive the club room rate of $75.00 for double occupancy with 2 queen beds or a single king bed and includes breakfast on Sunday Morning. The club will provide lunch on the trail Saturday and Sunday and a banquet dinner on Saturday night at Ale’s Steakhouse & Bar. The club will also transport one small bag per rider to the hotel and back to Barstow.

Note: The restaurant will have the AMA 2016 SuperCross races on that night.

 

We will gas in Johannasburg on Highway 395 so you will need to be able to go 90 miles before the gas stop on Saturday.

 
This is a dualsport only ride and your bike will need to be street legal,  have a spark arrester and don’t forget your motorcycle rated drivers license and proof of insurance.

 

THINKING ABOUT WHIBS

I ran across these photos of Paul Whibley, reflecting on his ferociousness in all things off-road. He raced for Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Yamaha and was always a threat to win in the GNCC series, or the OMAs. For a good period of time he dominated both winning the OMA series 6-times and the GNCC twice in ’09 and ’12.

WHAT ABOUT BONDO?

Always one of my favorite racers, Bobby Bonds made the jump from Supercross to WORCS and for a while looked to be one of the dominate forces no the planet. Injuries and a young family pretty much halted any more quests for a number one plate.

Back in the day I loved racing the Tecate enduro. In 1993 I teamed with brother Mike, my good buddy Greg Baumann and this other decent enduro guy Dick Burleson. And yes Martha, we won the team challenge.

GARAGE TIP

Tired of spilling coolant everywhere in your garage? My buddy Dave Simon builds a funnel system out of cardboard and duct tape to keep his floor sano.
