Thunder In The Sand Beach Race This Weekend

THE WILDWOODS, NJ - The thrill and excitement of motocross comes to the Wildwoods on May 29-31, 2009 with the “Spring Thunder in the Sand” beach race!  This weekend’s event consists of AMA-sanctioned Pro-Am motocross races which range from the beginner level to the area’s top professional racers. All of the weekend’s races take place on the pristine Wildwood beach between Schellenger and Spencer Avenues, which happens to be voted the best beach in New Jersey! This is the only time you can camp on the beach and have the back drop of the ocean while watching and/or racing for 3 days of pure motocross action!
