Lew, let’s say I’m a guy from Orange County or Riverside who races the Mammoth Mountain Motocross every spring. Is this new Powder Mountain event the type of race that will be a cool, end of summer Mammoth kind of deal?
Absolutely. Mammoth is kind of a guideline. It’s been an amazing race and Jeremy has always participated in it. We’ve been up there dozens of years as a big group. The reason being is that it’s a week-long race. It’s more than just the riding. It’s the family, it’s the friends, its camaraderie. I think this even lends itself to that same family atmosphere. We have on-site camping, we have pits that will remain be open. This first year, we’ll have most of the people showing up on a Wednesday and leaving on a Sunday or a Monday. So it’s a five day event and there are plenty of vendors and activities to do, whether it’s hiking or fishing or biking. I think this is definitely a race people should put on their annual schedule. We want to keep people entertained. We’ll have campfires at night. When people leave here, we want them to think it’s unlike any race they’ve been to. It’s not just motocross. We want to send everyone home with a smile and a very memorable moment.
Lew, what’s the racing format of the event?
The race format is that Thursday and Friday will be practice from 10 A.M. to 3 P.M. That way everyone can jet their bike and change their suspension to accommodate the track. And on Saturday and Sunday we’ll get started with practice at 7. Racing will be at 9 O’clock sharp. There will be a qualifier for every class. There’s a heat race, a last chance and then we’ll have our opening ceremonies at 2 O’clock. And it will be just be main events from 2 O’clock on each day. And each day will be a separate day.

Excellent. Thanks a lot, EJ.
