Alma MX in Alma, Nebraska.

Same layout and jumps since the 70's. Just grass roots old school motocross, with some opportunities to make some small jumps into some big jumps for us faster guys.

Close Second would be Thunder Valley in Lakewood, CO, we should all be familiar with that place, spent a lot of time there on 50's, 65's and my first year on 85's.

Southwick of course smile I've done over 3,000 laps on the track,I raced there for almost 30 years. When I was out of action after getting a hip replaced 4 years ago I went through all my old race results that I kept track of to come up with the 3,000 lap total. A lot of the race days I raced 2 or 3 classes. I did a bunch of practice days there too since then too, so I can probably add a couple hundred more laps to my lap total. Photo

Yeah dude when we rode Thursday night under the lights that was one of my favs. I liked Hangtown better for the crazy big jumps but the dirt was terrible. You remember riding out at Mammoth Bar in Auburn, Argyll park in Dixon, or Club Moto in Livermore? Those places were pretty awesome especially Club Moto, it was like an outdoor supercross track.

Here's a couple pics of Marysville riverfront, notice that nice river dirt smile

Canyon raceway 1st for me and then Thrasher in Phoenix, started riding there in the late 80s and stopped in 2001. I have since started riding again and canyon is still open and a completely different track now, but it’s still open!

Loved Mosier Valley, and Swan in Tyler starting in the early 90's. Swan is still one of the most fun and fast tracks I've ever ridden.

Sears Point. I only raced there a few times, but back in the day you could go there pay $5 and ride all day til they closed. We not only had access to the national track, but the whole place. We did a lot of play riding and hill climbing when we got tired of doing laps. We had a lot of fun there and used to go there often. I heard they stopped letting people ride there after some got hurt or something like that.

Of course the track is still open, but they haven't had any regular MX there in years that I know of. Brad Lackey had a vintage MX there quite a few years back that I recall.

Perris raceway GFI. Loved the night series during the summer back in the 90s! I believe it was the top 3 intermediate/pro riders at the end of the series all got a key to a truck. Whoever got the key that fit into the truck got the truck. Good times

I was fast... But being fast is relative to who else is on the track with you.

If it can't be fixed with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.

Englishtown's Raceway Park; been there since back when Ricky raced the top-gun minicycle shootout in early 90's. Old track is dead, new track (moved across the parking lot) is decent and active.

That was originally called "The Pit" in the mid-70's and then later West Florida MX.

Raced there many a time until the early 80's.

Probably spun more laps at the scene of my first race in 1971 than any track since. 331 Raceway in Opp, AL. Bi-weekly races year round from July 1971 thru 1975 riding multiple classes on race day.

That's me in the Captain America helmet back in 1971 on the way we found out about races (way) before the internet. Photo
