There is a little to remember about the 2013 Lake Elsinore 450 National. It was August 24, which of course meant it was hot, and the Southern California landscape was that typical late-summer baked earth. There was a modest-sized crowd to watch the riders on a makeshift national track, a hybrid built up from Lake Elsinore’s multiple practice tracks, as well as the Lucas Oil Off-Road Truck track, a 1/3-mile oval that seemed like a stadium. It wasn’t exactly Glen Helen; it wasn’t even Pala. The titles had already been clinched in both classes as well, so no real drama was left to add to this storyline either.
