My brother and I have gotten back into Moto over the past few year after racing as kids in the 90’s. From Leona Valley in California now living in Denton Texas we have decided to race the 2019 Mammoth Motocross. We have a page on Facebook as well as instagram following our road to mammoth. Since we won’t be able to make any of the qualifiers we will be winging it. If you feel like following check out Aric and Brian do mammoth or our instagram @aricandbriandomammoth

Good luck!
How does that work, not riding the qualifiers? Is it a lottery to get in at that point? If so, be ready AF to enter the very minute the signups open online. That race sells out, same day.

The last time I raced it, they did not have qualifiers. It was just, "sign up and hope they have enough spots." It's a great track, great weekend, well-run and a great vibe. Have fun!

That's awesome you guys are going, such a fun race. I'm hooked and gone the last 4 years!

With sign ups, if you don't do a qualifier, you can just sign up when they open registration online. If you do it the morning they open I haven't heard of anyone getting turned away. Definitely a race thats on my calendar every year.

Here's a video I made about the 50th Anniversary race:

Really I remember they used to be right up to Lake Elizabeth road. That’s a bummer. Hope to see you guys out there! We’ll be racing 30c and 40c maybe we’ll get to bump some bars! Here’s the link to the instagram if anyone cares to follow

They are still there, just no water. Hasn’t been for quite a few years now. If we get a good rain they will fill up with a few inches and gives it a sort of “full” look, but that’s about it.

How long ago did you live in Leona?

That’s a bummer. I moved from Leona in 2002. Actually move to mammoth and lived there till 2014. Then moved to Texas. My parents live in Mammoth and my grandparents still live in Leona.

If the two of you are racing 30c and 40c you shouldn't have any problems with sign-ups they run 2 divisions for those classes and they don't fill up in the first 10 minutes like some of the other classes. Be prepared when sign-ups open to non-qualifiers and have everything you need, AMA license is required, try going on x2 promotions early and set up an account. Don't forget to sign up for practice when you enter practice entries will sell out. I've been racing Mammoth for years by far my favorite race the only drawback is having to get in line so early on race day. I'm in Canyon Country like to train in hills off of 110th out in the desert some really nice GP tracks out there. Good luck guys

Do you guys know if Mammoth allow for "bump ups"? suppose you are qualified to race 40c and 50c, and you either Win or come in the top 3 on Saturday, are you allowed to "bump up" to race in the 40b and 50b on Sunday to empty gate spots?

Also, how difficult would it be to race several classes a day? do they run the 50c race right after the 40c race? or is there a few races in between those races so riders racing both classes can get a little rest between motos?

Its been a long time since i last raced Mammoth but I really want to race it in 19.

Go check out 2X promotions and throw those Q’s at them, you’ll get answers. Last year our engineer raced 40C & 50C. It wasn’t too difficult. He did sleep really well, tho. laughing

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

Who are you kidding Craig, you couldn't race several classes a day if you started training now. laughing

J/K, I'll spin the wrenches for you if you go.

I don’t know about bumping up classes. Sound like they get pretty full to allow something like that.

With the Vet Weekend, the gates are full on Saturday, but Sunday sees a drop off of guys that don’t show up to the line for a variety of reasons.

I got my Wooden Bears for both days and for 6th O/A...this year I;m going back for the WIN. 0-50 B. I saw a few get-offs. But, over-all, it's a pretty damn safe race week.

The only scary part of Mammoth is the start of every C Class moto ?. Otherwise the track and competition are good fun.

Normally it’s mid May, or about 2 weeks after the final qualifier.

One year in the late 90s they were running the short start to the right around the tree. It was even more sketchy. I fouled a plug on my CR125 on the line, my dad swapped plugs, finished just as they dropped the gate, we kick it to life and I take off 10 seconds late and ended up with a top 20 start at the top of the hill because of the pile up and carnage.

You don't want to bump up any class at Mammoth! laughing Racing C class is like being in Intermediate, B class is like pro, and I think you had better be a National Pro to race the Pro class.

The same year I won the Yamaha Dealer Series at Glen Helen in +30 Intermediate, I did not qualify for either day's main motos at Mammoth. blush

Seriously. Seen it as a spectator for many years. Guys I knew raced intermediate and pro locally dropped down to c and b for mammoth. Another reason I haven't raced it yet.
