March 20, 2012 – Corona, CA – The fastest party in town, also known as “A Day in the Dirt”, is moving to the world famous Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, CA for the 15th running of this annual So Cal Classic. The event will be hosted by Troy Lee Designs and the Hollywood Stunt & Film community.
What started as a one-day event has turned into what some people call “MX Woodstock”. It’s a gathering of families and friends doing what they love most, riding dirt bikes. It not only attracts some of the fastest racers in the world and the “who’s who” of the moto industry, but also riders and moto fanatics worldwide.
Seven-time national champ and an ADITD regular from day one Ricky Johnson, along with legend Gary Jones, will work with presenter Troy Lee and Producer Kenny Alexander to design this year’s course. With blessings from the Glen Helen crew to “get creative”, they will incorporate some hills, some asphalt, and you name it, to build one of the coolest Motocross Grand Prix courses ever!
“A Day in the Dirt is such a special event,” says Kenny Alexander. “For those who have been, it’s one of the races you look forward to all year. And for the newcomers it’s the beginning of a brand new Thanksgiving tradition. This year we’re moving the event to Glen Helen Raceway, a world-class facility that has hosted the outdoor nationals and the USGP. We’re really excited to bring such a fun event to such a great venue.”
Whether you’re an A Day in the Dirt regular or a newcomer, you can expect a race like no other. The event takes place over Thanksgiving weekend November 23rd – 25th, 2012 so mark your calendar today!
