    Speedway opener Costa Mesa Ca May 12th

    Next Saturday night Costa Mesa starts there speedway season.
    It is very intense racing, four laps and a very small oval it’s all over in less than a minute. The only strategy is to win and makes for very competitive racing. The motorcycles are unique in that they have no brakes and no transmission and very limited suspension, all designed for lightweight and going fast

    Here is a short vid at a race I went to a few years ago. Not as fast as the pros but still fun to watch.

    In the early 90s I was stationed in Long Beach. My buddies and I would go to Costa Mesa Speedway and this insanity. We would go through the program, pick a random racer, and bet a dollar per race. The best part of the night would be when 2 guys would crash, jump to their feet, and start fighting. 2 guys in full gear punching each other in the helmet was so great to watch.

    Scotti158, that is speedway and it is really hard to do.
    The pro’s make it look easy, but they dance along the edge. Too many crash videos.
    I like this video (other than the stupid intro) because it captures the sight and sound from spectator level.
    It also shows the leader having to slow down to win, watch him figure it out on the third lap.

    That's cool. I did something similar when a car pulled in front of me and my back tire slid around.
