    :hello: Here are pics of the vintage motocross track set up just as it was in 1976 when Marty Smith done the first ever double jump on his factory Honda RC 125M Type II Elsinor which made 43 hp which is twice the horse power of the stock CR 125 at the time. That was when the Factoy Teams did not have any regulations put in place by the AMA & they was able to push the HP to extreme levels. At that high of horse power the top end needed replaced after every race. By the eary 80s the factory race teams could only race bikes that was close to what was sold in the show rooms.

    :hello: Pics of out camping area. We camped in the field to the right just after you enter at the Will-Call area. We picked the highest ground in case it rained. Sis & I rented a Kia Soul which is all they had. The people around us was all really nice. The one guy helped my Sis set up our tent & Ezey Up while I went for ice. We all shared food & drink. I cooked us all deer meat. Some have never tasted it before. We had one group of 25 people who was rowdy. At midnight they decided to fire up the chain saw so I ran down to get some fire wood from them & drink some beer with them. I told them of my truck trouble. They told me I was crazy for coming all the way from FL in a 16 year old truck. :laughing7:. I said it was fine the last 4 times that I came North. :laughing7:. On Sunday we all helped each other break camp & headed back to Hubbard OH which is near Sharon PA. My Tranny was done Wenesday. We headed to Cherry Tree PA the next day. I thought my troubles was over but not. :laughing7:. We broke down again. :pain10:.:banghead:. :angryfire:.

    My brother owned the blue honda 350 street and trail when he was 17-18. He caught a pole rounding a corner, busted up his wrist and skidded to a stop on the pavement using the side of his face as a brake! That was the year I was in a velcro leg cast for a battered leg and we were in my sister's wedding. The guy fitting the tuxes was asking if that casts and scabs would be off before the wedding...lol. thanks RJ for bringing back the memories.

    That is the parking area but it has grown so much that it is now used for camping.

    :hello: Last but not least of my VMD 2018 pics. are of the Birth of Motocross in the USA legend John Penton. Back in the 70s my good friend Bill McInvale was offered a Factoy Ride by John Penton himself. Back then it didn't pay much. Bill made more working for G. E. Areospace.
