You know IV League Flat Track, right? They’re the guys that put on fun flat track events like Del Mar. They recently held the Perris auto track race, running clay, which is fast and a little more rare in So-Cal.

They’ve handled all the hard parts, and the weekend should be a sheer thrill for all.

Motorcycle Show
