HOLESHOT 78 . . .

There's nothing like the start of a motocross race. Forty racers in a full on side by side drag race and funneling into a sharp, off camber turn. The prize at the end of this madness, the Holeshot. To be the first racer out on the track leaving everyone else to eat your dust!

Working on a BIG poster print on this image . . . coming soon to eBay (tmphotoart) and my website www.inktale.com/tmphotoart

HEADING INTO THE WEEKEND ON THE GAS!
Nothing like a classic image of one of the Greatest MX races in the World - USGP at Carlsbad.

Brad Lackey 2 Hon out front - Go USA!

I'm sorry, but the current American outdoors races pale in comparison to the what the true meaning of motocross was like in the 70's and 80's.
Everything was new and exciting - the works bikes and mx racers that you couldn't pronounce their names.

National pride was celebrated, not down played.

The notion of 1st American was a big thing and seeing all the top European racers was priceless.

Oh, have times changed and saddly, some changes not for the betterment of the sport.

THIS IS MOTO - MAKE MX GREAT AGAIN!

SIDEWAYS SEMICS . . .

LOP teammate with Marty Moates, Gary Semics @garysemics is working his YZ493 up Carlsbad's Freeway during the 1980 USGP Saturday qualifying.
If you watch the 1980 USGP 2nd Moto, you'll see Semics started on the second row, right behind Moates and was right there with Moates on the first lap.

My favorite racer on the 1980 Yamaha's that season just like my YZ250G and my Dad's YZ465 was so cool.

MOTO HISTORY . . .

A magical 2nd moto with Marty Moates leading and Rex Staten, JJ Bruno and Gary Semics in hot pursuit. The large crowd loved it but could Marty actually win again was everyone's question. Moates treated the American mx fans with an historical event.
