TransWorld Motocross learned today that days are numbered for the Saddleback Motocross Park in Lake Irvine, CA. For several months now, rumors have been circulating about the track’s uncertain future, and it looks like the Labor Day weekend will be the last hurrah for the current Saddleback MX Park.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that Saddleback’s owners have already secured a new nearby location in Orange County and plan to open a new park (Saddleback III?) by January 1, 2003. The new facility is said to have the complete blessing of the Irvine Company, and much more permanent in nature. Eight complete tracks is the goal, as the facility is more than double the size of the current Saddleback MX Park.
