    All Track Riders under 18 Years of Age must have a
    Parent or Guardian sign their waiver.


    There is no limit on racers age but anyone under 16 years
    old should contact me before the race day of April 7th.

    There will be no extra charge to race a second bike in
    another class.

    Jim Granger of Grange Motor Circuit is the friendliest and
    most accommodating race track owner in Southern California
    which is why SoCal Motor Bicycle Racing has the track from
    sunrise to sunset on Sat April 7th.

    That's 12 hours of practice, racing and just cruising around
    the most challenging course in SoCal and don't forget the
    moon light track ride on Friday night!

    We will also be test riding the track in reverse which is
    clock wise at the end of the day for anyone that sticks
    around after the prize ceremony of some custom trophies.

    PS: There will be a hot chick waving the start and finish
    flag and if you crash and burn she will patch you up too! :D

    PPS: www.ArrowMotorizedCycles.com is casting some very
    cool aluminum plaques for prizes out of big race pistons.
    More to be announced about that soon.

    Great!
    You missed a really fun event last Oct 22nd.
    Are you bringing any other 50 cc 4 stroke class riders like the Willow Springs race?

    Looking forward to seeing you at the track and maybe running my
    50 cc 4 stroke against you. :D

    Check out this video of Dave Rust's Rocket Car......
    Zero to 60 mph in One Second.
    the info on the U Tube video which says 6 seconds is incorrect.
    The video only shows a partially powered launch due to the cul-de-sac
    "drag strip." :D

    http://youtu.be/aO9DjjOzi2E

    Dave is going to run the Rocket at one of the Grange races as an
    exhibition dragster down the front straight during the lunch break.


    Dave Rust's brother Jim rode the #5 66 cc China 2 stroke to 2nd at
    the last Oct 22nd Grange race right behind 1st place winner magrider.

    The # 5 bike speed parts are available here and Dave will even make
    you one of his water cooled heads!

    Arrow Motorized Cycles is casting some very cool #1 plaques for the winners
    at the next SoCal Motor Bicycle Race on Sat April 7th


    I went over to Dave's place on friday and rode a couple of
    his reed valved motorized cycles. They haul butt up hills! :D
    and they rev out. I was going 38 mph on a 44 tooth sprocket.
    I will post some pics up soon.

    Dave casts his own aluminum reed valve cages out of high $$$$
    drag boat pistons and connecting rods from blown and "old" motors.

    Here is a pic of the drag boat that Dave was the crew chief on.
    He has helped destroy millions of dollars worth of drag motors!!! :D
    I don't know why he is fooling around with these crappy chinese
    motors but he says he is having too much fun. :)

    The man is a mechanical genius, his full suspension motored bike is
    really cool.

    Nashmoto #98 has been working on the new logo so here is the
    latest version. Just a few more details and it will be done.

    The logo would not have a riders number on the helmet as shown
    but that option will be available as a custom sticker, T shirt, etc.

    White logo on a black shirt of course. :D Anyone like a black logo on
    a white shirt?

    So how do you guys like it?

    The famous team of Bigboy is coming to the April 7th race again
    all the way from Placerville.

    If you missed their exquisitely crafted bikes at the last Oct race
    you gotta catch them this time .. .. ... :grin5:

    Bigboy is building up some new racers so they will be selling off
    some parts from their last builds.

    Dave Rust of Arrow Motorized Cycles has cast up some
    bronze trophies for the first place winners at the April 7th
    Grange race.

    Dave casts all his reed block bodies out of aluminum in his
    own foundry then machines them to fit the reeds.

    The trophies really came out great!

    Dave, his brother Jim and two more brothers will be racing
    3 of his bikes in the 66 cc 2 stroke class using most of the
    parts that he sells on his website.

    magrider is going to get some serious competition this race! :D

    Check them out at www.ArrowMotorizedCycles.com
