Unadilla is celebrating forty years of racing history with a new event for 2012. For anyone interested in racing, "MX Rewind" will include three full days of entertainment, a swap meet, a display of vintage bikes, and much more! The following will give details on the event and list some celebrities you could be sharing the weekend with:
New Berlin, NY (January 11, 2012): Unadilla MX, one of the oldest and historically significant Motocross racetracks in the world, is pleased to announce a new event for the 2012 season taking place on June 1-3. Called “MX Rewind”, the three day festival will focus on vintage machines and will serve as a platform to celebrate over forty years of racing history at Unadilla.
With three full days of entertainment scheduled, this event is being designed to appeal to both racers and the fans of racing alike. Those who attend this event as a fan can expect to watch AHRMA vintage racing (both on the pro track and through the woods), browse a massive vintage swap meet, see a huge display of vintage show motorcycles, camp out on the scenic Unadilla hillsides, all while rubbing elbows and bench racing with some of the most popular legends of the past. There will be much more added to the entertainment list in the coming weeks.
For those looking to test their metal, the AHRMA sanctioned vintage motocross races will take place on the famed Unadilla national track, which is generally off limits to anyone who is not a pro rider. Additional promoter vintage classes will be added, as well. Recognizing that the bikes of yesterday are not the bikes of today, the track will be reworked by a former MX National Champ into a vintage friendly track. There will also be several other forms of racing, some very unique, which will be added to the racing schedule in the coming weeks too.
The early list of celebrities that are scheduled to attend reads like a who’s-who of Motocross: Brad Lackey, Gary Jones, Marty Smith, Ron Lechien, Jimmy Weinert, and Gunnar Lindstrom are amongst the early list of guests.
“This is a brand new event for us, one that we are crafting as a “lifestyle” type event, says Greg Robinson, part of the Robinson Family who are the owners of Unadilla. “It is designed to appeal to all fans of motorcycling, whether it is dirt or street. Our natural focus will have an emphasis on the off road portion, but we want to make it clear that everyone who is a fan of motorcycles is invited to come out and enjoy the weekend. Robinson also added, “While racing is an integral part of our dna, and it will be large part of this event, there will also be much more to experience from a pure entertainment standpoint. We hope all of our longtime fans of Unadilla will come out, camp, and enjoy a fun weekend with us at the track.”
