Old-timers Get Together to Feed Warthogs at the Seattle Supercross

Seattle, WA - Warthog Racing Academy riders and other privateers get to eat "high on the hog" and welcome the Vintage Dirt Racers Northwest Group as hospitality sponsors for the Seattle SX event at Qwest Field.

In Seattle this Saturday Warthog Racing riders, other privateers, friends, and families will be supplied drinks, lunch, and dinner in the Warthog Racing pit thanks to the generosity of a group of vintage motocross racers out of the Pacific Northwest vintage motocross scene. This sponsorship was born out of Warthog Racing's Race Director Darrell Saldana's friendship with Vintage Dirt Racing Northwest (VDRNW) that began at the Qwest Field Supercross race in Seattle 2008.

"It's just our way of helping out," says Stu Osborn VDRNW organizer. "Darrell proposed their "Feed the Hogs Program", an opportunity to host our own party at the races with our guests being the very riders we are there to watch.  Everyone I talked to jumped at the chance to contribute to the riders and hang out. I hope everyone in Seattle will enjoy the vintage bikes we're bringing out to the race."

VDR runs a 9-race winter motocross series at Woodland, Washington where male and female racers of all ages and skills compete on machines older than 1975 in Vintage classes, and ride 1975 and newer machines in Trans-Am and Evolution motocross classes. The 5-race summer series is called "Hammer & Tongs" and makes a late June stop in Washougal, Washington on June 20-21, on a toned-down track at the same site where Warthog racers are slated to run in the AMA Pro Motocross National series later this year.

"Stu and the group (VDRNW) are the best... successful individuals outside our industry who have a deep passion for the machine.  They have some cool bikes and yes, they do race them.  I would like to thank them for getting involved, we really appreciate it.  Hogs love food!!", stated Darrell Saldana.
