Our family is really into motor and sports racing of all sorts. So my husband took our son to the Speedway in Costa Mesa, CA. The speedway is an offroad motorcross event where they ride a special type of 500cc motorcycle that is capable of going from zero to 60 in 2.5 seconds. This racing event is considered one of Orange County’s best kept secrets and was the first location to hold the national championships back in 1969.
My son said it was one of the most exciting events he has ever been to and now wants to race his bike too. As a mother, I always get a tad scared of injuries but if he wants to race, I will definitely support that. So, of course, I had to tag along the next time they went. I didn’t really expect to enjoy it but to my surprise, I loved it. The racing was so fast; I was never bored. The event also had freestyle jumpers, chopper races and some other wild racing. It is definitely worth attending at least once in your life.
My son is hooked and now he and my husband will be off on racing weekends for as long as they live! Maybe I’ll learn how to ride one of these? Stay tuned….
