Round 1 of the Annual Racer X Vet Series was held at Motosports Park in Byron, Illinois. They have been hosting races at Motosports every year since opening in 1970.
The first Senior event that inspired other similar events and eventually the RacerX Senior Championship was held at Mt Morris, Pennsylvania back in the early 90's. The race was held on a Saturday before the Pennsylvainia Amateur MX Championship. A group of older guys from the midwest saw the small ad in Cycle News, loaded up an old Travel Craft and trailer, made the trek and had a great time.
A year or so later, the Aztalan Cycle Club, in Lake Mills, Wisconsin held the 1st Annual Dirty Old Blasters. In 1998 and 1999 events were held at Hardrock Cycle Park in Ocala Florida. 2000 and 2001 saw.... 2 more Dirty Old Blasters and the first 2 Motosports Park VET OPENs.
