In between races, we took some time to browse our hard drives and look at photos taken throughout the year. We’ll highlight each shot in a daily post, with the image sized to fit your computer screen or smartphone and described with a small backstory…
It’s that time of year again. The annual TWMX Trans Am is back and slated to kickoff this Friday, as we make a return to the Hills of Glen Helen Raceway for the second year in a row. Two consecutive days of racing will ensue beginning Saturday morning, so if you haven’t already make sure you sign up for the three day event because you won’t want to miss out.
Last year, the notoriously rough San Bernardino County facility played host to the TWMX Trans Am and it was a memorable day for everyone on and off the track. For this year’s Trans Am, we’ve implemented a few things that will make the racing more enjoyable for everyone, and did we mention that Trans Am Vet Pro champion Mike Sleeter will be designing the racetrack?
Hundreds of racers converged onto the Glen Helen Raceway grounds last year and the talent pool was deep. Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha’s Mitchell Harrison made an appearance last year and went home with the 250 Pro title alongside fellow Yamaha rider Bradley Taft who took the 450 Pro class title. Trevor Hooten (pictured above) was another rider to have a successful day of racing, as he obtained his first TWMX Trans Am championships last year in 450 Intermediate and College Boy. Here, Hooten races through a set of rollers on his way to his final moto win of the weekend.
Who will show up this year to take the top honors? Join us this weekend at Glen Helen Raceway to find out.
