You should try to see the first turn of one moto it's a 90 degree right hand turn and when 40 of them come through there at once it's worth the price of admission alone. Not a whole lot of room by that fence so you need to pick a moto and park it there. Gravity Cavity and the Screw U are also must see's. But you haven't lived until you've see them whip it on the skyshot. The food there is decent enough so to use the VIP for a few "free eats" and some shade just doesn't cut it you need to see Unadilla up close. The VIP tent will give you an overall view of a lot of the track but isn't close to anything. Save your money unless a seat on a folding chair under a tent is really important.

Skyshot last year.

they don't call it skyshot for nothing trust me and they even have a set of bleachers there now.
I knew I could count on you for feedback. Yes, I agree. Very familiar with the place but haven't been there since 1987 when Hannah was proving a point in the "Des Nations" on a 125. I remember when you couldn't think about bringing a girl to a race there due to some questionable types (okay, I was one of them). Anyway, the place has changed and the pics do it justice. $400 is lot to pay for some shade and a boxed lunch. Sorry no sistas that young.

That Robin kid is impressive! It just goes to show you, it's who's behind the bars that counts. That's what I love about motocross. The rider is so much a bigger part of the equation than in other motorsports.

thanks dudes. in the hotel now. got a look at the track about 4pm, my first time here.

HO. LEE. SHIT.

wow. what a track.

and my god talk about spectator friendly you can see the whole dam track from anywhere practially. let them close southwick it can't be too soon what a poor excuse for a track. good riddance.

this place is a freaking mecca this is nicer than unadilla. WOW.

it was pretty cool to be on this track having been on unadilla last saturday.

so I'm in the hotel with a press pass and a photog vest, look for photog # 91 I'll either be on Doug Henry's hill or the Big Gulp.

Flug it is a great track to spectate at, but I would ride Southwick over Budds anytime. It is just my opinion having raced both.... I will agree that Southwick sucks to view a national though.

Yep, you shoulda seen RV hand the world its ass in 2007 @ MX Des Nations . He lapped Carioli,. he also took RC that day on a 250 , and Budds is a horsepower track w those big hills. Our club is doing the flagging there this w/e , I woulda gone but have to work today.
