Yeah, people think we are crazy. I drove down solo last year pulling a trailer with everyone's bikes, it took me 8 days. Me and one of the mini-dads drove back together in 4.5 days. Quite a haul, no doubt. But totally worth it when you love MX like we do.

Man, 4.5 to 8 days? You're a die-hard for sure. The furthest I've ever driven is up to Unadilla in '97. That was around 23 hours and it was a dual purpose (my wife is from upstate NY) trip.

Gatorback is an awesome track though. I just wish they still had the National there. Man, I miss it! 😢

yep,

I grew up in the High Springs/Alachua area. It is like a big homecoming for me. I used to flag those races at Gatorback when I was a youngster. Have great memories of watching all the old pros battle. It still is an awesome facility. I have hooked several of the local riders up here with old video and the stories of that place.

I know what you mean. The first outdoor National I ever attended (1983) was there and I never missed one including the last in 1997. That was the year of Ricky Carmichael's first 125cc win. Great memories there for sure. 😢
