Generally most BMX tracks will hold two race days per week and one or more practice days per week as well. Throughout the year most tracks will hold larger meets with specialized races usually worth extra points for the riders who participate. These races encourage riders to travel to different tracks and race people from all over. Last weekend the Rusty Bowl BMX track hosted a 3 day race weekend. Friday's race was the Race for Life, a fundraiser where the participants collect donations for research and treatment of Leukemia and Lymphoma. In addition to the donations collected a portion of the race entry fee is donated as well. Last weekend the racers raised over $1,900. Many tracks across the county hold a Race for Life raising money for this great cause. On Saturday was a State Champion Series Qualifier race, this race series allows racers to qualify and participate in the State Champion Race (California is split in to Northern and Southern). On Sunday the Rusty Bowl held a Double Points race, a bonus race for the riders to earn extra district points.
This past weekend at the Rusty Bowl was fun and exciting, and was all made possible by the volunteers who keep this sport alive. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who makes BMX possible both at the Rusty Bowl and at all the other ABA tracks across the country. If you have not been to a BMX race you should check it out. It is a fun and exciting sport and there is racing for ALL age groups from 5 and under and up.
