A Day In The Dirt is a special race that brings together Hollywood and the Southern California motorcycle industry. It's roots go back two generations to Steve McQueen, and the event has become as much a party as a dirt bike race. This year it moves to its new home at Pala Raceway. Here's a preview video on the event from Vital MX:

It lived up to its name this year. Saw Red Rocket on the back of the track Friday and chated a bit, always cool. I rode the Vet Inter on Sat and was 2nd behind Don Maeda from Transworld into the first turn. I went around him bout 3 turns later and led the rest of the first lap only to go down right after bending my sub frame and taking a good shot to my shoulder. I ended up 8th and Austin Fox scored 4th with his first appearance at the event.

Rockin the Watson 543 on the outside:

Sunday Moto A Go Go was stacked with alot of good riders and I was running 3rd off the start only to go down again on my shoulder. I just cruised and Bret was pickin up the slack, we ended up 8th in the class.

In the Coup De Grace (1hr 1/2) I started and ran bout 20th on the 1st lap and pulled off trying to save my shoulder for Catalina. Bret ended up 26, Austin was 38th out of 178 riders and I ended up pitting for winner Andrew Short during the race. It was pretty sweet, he had to pit to for fuel twice and Josh Strang was all over him.
