Will you be one of the thousands that will file through the gates at Milestone MX Park this weekend for the 2018 TransWorld Motocross SLAM Fest? We’re taking over the Southern California facility for a full day of free riding on Saturday, September 8th. What’s the schedule? Here’s a rundown of what we have planned!
FRONT GATES OPEN AT 8 AM
ALL TRACKS OPEN FOR RIDING AT 9 AM
ALL TRACKS CLOSE AT 3 PM
Things get underway early on Saturday! We’ll open the front gates 8 AM (remember, we’ve got your entry fee covered) and then start riding on all prepped tracks at 9 AM. We’ll have sessions on the tracks separated by skill level, which will ensure that your laps on the track are as safe as possible!
Be sure to pass through vendor row between your motos on the track to see the latest products and score deals from the biggest brands in motocross.
Riding will stop at 3 PM and we’ll clear all of the tracks in order to set the stage for the SLAM Pro Race.
SLAM PRO RACE
TIMED QUALIFYING FROM 4 PM TO 4:30 PM
MOTOS FROM 5 PM TO 6 PM
The highlight of the day for many is the SLAM Pro Race, a bar-to-bar battle with top racers in SoCal! We’ll set the field through the 30-minute timed qualifying session, which will whittle down the roster to the fastest fifteen riders and one “editor’s choice” Wild Card.
This year’s SLAM Pro Race format will be a traditional two-moto format. Racers will rally around the Main Track over the course of the five-lap motos and the best overall scores will get their chunk of the $10,000 purse. The winner will take home $5000 and the coveted SLAM Belt trophy, second place will earn $3000, and third place will earn $2000.
This year’s line up is set to include defending champion Tyler Bowers, Alex Ray, Gared Steinke, and many more. Who will emerge victorious this year?
FLAT TRACK RACING WITH HELL ON WHEELS MC & RUSTY BUTCHER
6 PM TO 9 PM
After the awards from the Pro Race have been passed out, we move over to the dirt track at Milestone for an evening of going fast and turning left! Hell On Wheels MC and Rusty Butcher run a wild program with classes for riders and bikes of all kinds, including a Knobby Class for those of us on MX machines. You never know who you will line up next to at the flat track race, so be sure to save a little gas for a late-night moto.
For the last decade or so we've taken over a Southern California track, invited the industry to set up shop on a vendors row, and covered the entry fee for riders for a day fill of two-wheel fun. This year we're going back to Milestone MX Park in Riverside, California, and prepping every MX track for the hundreds of riders that'll spin laps with their friends and take advantage of the deals offered by the biggest brands in moto. At a certain point, we'll have to clear everyone off of the Main Track and get things ready for a no-holds-barred battle with the SLAM Pro Race that'll pay the winner of the motos a very nice sum of money. If you have the need for speed in your system, line up with us for a night of low-speeds and left turns on the flat track!
