The Place / 5 motos today
« on: April 14, 2018, 07:02:26 PM »
So I decided to try and race both with REM and SoCal OTMX today. Was not sure if the schedules would work since the races were on different tracks but went for it anyway. Yeah really not a smart thing to do when you are talking about some rough and tough tracks and you are old and out of shape.

Well, first moto was with OTMX then had plenty of time for my first REM moto, but only 10 min after the REM moto and the start of my 2nd OTMX moto. Then plenty of time again for my 2nd REM moto and after that had a 20 min break before my 3rd and last moto of the day with OTMX. Glad my Husky's TBT suspension was dialed pretty good, as both tracks were gnarly at the end. REM was not quite as rough as the National track, but man, I know I'll sleep well tonight.

Of course, I still have 2 more motos to do tomorrow with OTMX. Got 3rd OA with REM and scored a sweet 3rd place 20th anniversary plaque. So far I believe I'm in 5th place with OTMX, but basically I threw away a better finish on moto two, as 2 fellow racers crashed pretty good and I pulled off the track and went to help them. Glad they were relatively ok and no broken bones, but they will really be sore tomorrow  :shock:

So anyway, overall, I had a great time with a couple of great groups at a awesome and tough Glen Helen.

Took the day off tomorrow, so going to Milestone. Parking by the parts store under the trees. Anyone else?

The Place / REM is back on this Sat 3/7
« on: April 01, 2018, 08:05:41 PM »
REM is back on this Saturday, April 7th. Come on out and join the fun.
There is also the LL Qualifiers on the main track, so gate fee should be $10, and probably should get there early, as I would imagine there will be a ton of people there, so the gate might be packed and also might be tight parking.

And don't make other plans for next Sat, 3/14, as REM will be having their 20th anniversary of racing at GH and the celebration and racing will be great.

The Place / SoCal OTMX at GH (REM) this Sunday 3/8
« on: April 01, 2018, 07:58:14 PM »
SoCal OTMX will be racing on the REM track at GH on Sunday 3/8. This is a shared race in conjunction with OTHG. This should be fun and also get to race with both clubs if you want.

The Place / Sleetdawg took a header at Trans-Am Saturday
« on: March 25, 2018, 01:20:25 PM »
So Mike was in the 2 stroke race and was kicking ass with McGrath right behind him. Then on the jumps in the back when the main is going towards the REM track something happened and he lost it and down he went really hard and he was out. He was on the ground for a few minutes and finally was able to get up with some help. It didn't look like he broke anything, but he looked pretty dazed when they took him back to the pits in the Rhino.

But McGrath sure did show a really class act. That section was really fast and where Mike landed was pretty much blind. McGrath, who was behind Mike at the time, hit the brakes turned around an put his bike in front of Mike to block anyone else from hitting him. Very cool to see for sure. The rest of the race was red flagged.

Hope Sleeter is doing good. If anyone has any info, please post it.

The Place / SoCal OTMX at Sunrise was great.
« on: March 18, 2018, 03:42:46 PM »
Too bad we didn't get a larger turnout, as the track was prepped great and it was actually a lot of fun, specially after I started doing the whoops/rhythm section  :lol:

There was no wind with sunny skies and the temperatures were great for racing, I was even sweating in both motos.

Good times for sure.

REM is cancelled

The Place / Sunrise Sat
« on: March 14, 2018, 07:15:59 PM »
Well, no REM this Sat, so planning on Sunrise for some practice for Sunday's SoCal OTMX race. Will be there by 9 and probably leave by 12.

Anyone else going?

The Place / John Burr in Fontana closing??
« on: March 14, 2018, 10:51:37 AM »
Well, just went to John Burr and the doors were closed. Hand written sign on the door just said "Sorry, we're closed" Then something about a 50% off sale on Sat from 11-4. The lights were on and the crew was inside, but locked doors. One customer was able to get in as someone let him in the back for a bit. I talked to him when he came out and he's the one that said John Burr is closing.

This is a bummer, as besides being my go to shop, which is only about 2 miles from my house and I've been going there forever, I feel bad for all the guys working there, as I've known most for a very long time.
