TWMXRS Fall Classic | Round Three This Sunday
This weekend, the TWMXRS will be headed for Los Angeles County Raceway for the third stop of the Fall Classic, presented by SPY. After two successful opening rounds – first at Milestone MX for the opener followed by round two at Comp Edge – we’ve been eager to return to the starting-gate; especially since this weekend’s racetrack looks like something straight out of a video game. Likely our favorite aspect of this weekend though, will be the weather. As of now, a cool 66 degree high is expected for this Sunday along with rain two days prior to the event; all the ingredients needed for a good time on a dirt bike.
Located in Palmdale, CA, the outdoor-style motocross track is laid out across a retired rock and gravel quarry, so the “Amateur” and “Expert” racetracks feature a number of man-made uphills and downhills that make for a unique experience. Although it’s primarily known for its sandy conditions, LACR’s racetracks house a hard, underlying base that typically emerges once the track begins to break down, so it makes for yet another unique obstacle. There are always a select few that shine in these alien conditions, and that’s what makes the racing so exciting at LACR.
It’s been quite some time since we last visited LACR for some gate-drops, as our last trip was back in late March for the second round of the West Coast Open. Tallon LaFountaine was the standout rider last time we visited LACR, as the TWMX test pilot put on quite a show for the spectators with his blistering speed. The number 59 was seemingly on rails, as he went on to go undefeated on the day with a total of four moto wins for the overall in 450 Pro and Pro-Open. Each round brings a new batch of speedsters, so there’s no telling who’s going to show up to contest for race wins. Who will be the top dog this weekend?
Don’t forget! At the final round of the Fall Classic – which is set to be held at Glen Helen Raceway on December 4th – we’ll be raffling off this brand-new 2017 Yamaha YZ450F to one lucky winner to cap off yet another successful year of racing. We’ve been accepting entries throughout the entire year for this particular raffle, which ultimately gives more people the chance to win big, so come out and race with us. You just might go home with a new toy!
We look forward to seeing you all again this weekend at Los Angeles County Raceway for round three of the TWMXRS Fall Classic, presented by SPY. See ya there!
