We’ve hammered it into your heads for weeks on end, but trust us, it’s been for a very good reason. Saturday’s TransWorld Motocross SLAM Festival Powered by Rockstar Energy has shaped up to be one of our best ever, thanks to the numerous vendors and racers confirmed to take part in the free to the public event at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park. The massive plot of land has been worked for days on end and the Southern California course is prime for tomorrow’s open track riding and the crowning event, the head-to-head SLAM Pro Race. After Friday’s thrilling Industry Cup, which saw KTM USA take the Tretta-Motoda Cup over FMF Racing and MSR, we saw how the track has developed thanks to the gallons of water from rains and water trucks that have soaked the ripped course, and it will be perfect for all riders.
The tracks open at 8AM on Saturday morning, with sessions separated by skill level that give riders equal amounts of laps. You will be given a colored indicator based on skill level that will correspond with the posted schedules. The Main Track will close at 2PM to prepare for the SLAM Head-To-Head Pro Race, and the Vet Track will close at 3PM.
Inside the Kid’s Learn-To-Ride area, hosted by Coach2Ride, the next generation of motocross stars will get their start. Young riders will be outfitted in a set of gear, hop on a bike, and receive coaching on the basics by the staff of instructors.
Our SLAM Head-To-Head Pro Race has a stacked field of competitors ready to fight for the 5,000-dollar purse, SLAM belt, and the cover of our December issue. The field will be whittled down to eight racers through timed qualifying, and then go against each other in a knockout format that will set the stage for a three man final round (two semi final winners and a wild card). Confirmed racers for the event include COOPER WEBB, COLE SEELY, DARRYN DURHAM, MATT GOERKE, KYLE CHISHOLM, TYLER VILLOPOTO, JIMMY DECOTIS, JASON LAWRENCE, and JUSTIN HOEFT. The pro action begins promptly at 3PM on a specially made course that will provide close racing.
That’s it. If you haven’t gotten the message on the TransWorld Motocross SLAM Festival Powered By Rockstar Energy by now, it’s not from a lack of trying on our part, but we will try one final time. BE AT LAKE ELSINORE MOTORSPORTS PARK SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12TH, WHEN GATES OPEN AT 8AM.
