I went to the Riverside races every year once I got my drivers license . I lived 20 minutes from the track and would ride my enduro bike out, then just cruise around and watch from any spot I could find in a fence. Once I was walking on the infield side of the esses and saw a poor guy trying to pull the motor out of his 5/1600 car by himself. His crew never showed up. I set my helmet and backpack down, layed down in the dirt and helped him finish the job. I miss Riverside raceway,(but not Riverside).

I agree that the new tracks are boring, just dirty NASCAR. The new Robby Gordon SST stadium series is a step in the right direction but the tracks need to be rougher.
