With the new year upon us, so is the new race season. The Dirt Series, Quad X, Summer MX League, Lake Elsinore Grand Prix and Winterfest all experienced a positive year in growth and will be looking to build off that momentum for 2018. For those who raced the Quad X Series as well as qualified for the WCMC, the Awards Banquet will be showcased after Round 1 of the Quad X Series Saturday, Feb. 10, at 5 p.m. at the Glen Helen Raceway Museum. OA results are currently showcased online.

The Dirt Series will remain 9 rounds, but the organization has added a couple more full weekend rounds. Round 1 will take place at Glen Helen and Round 3 will be at 333 MX Park, which will showcase full weekends of racing as Quad X will be Saturday and Dirt Series will be Sunday. Round 5, Method Race Wheels Summer Bash Event and Round 7 GBC Motorsports Day 2 Play event will both be in full weekend form as well.

Quad X will showcase a 6-round schedule for 2018 starting with Round 1 beginning Feb. 10 at Glen Helen on the Main. The round 2 full weekend will showcase “Under the Lights” racing. More UTV classes have been added to help the series growth. Look for a new track on the schedule for round 3 as they head North to begin expanding the series. A new addition to the schedule for 2018 will be Jet Ski racing as they move over to the water side of racing for a weekend at La Laguna in Lake Elsinore May 11 and 12.

Last year brought the Lake Elsinore Grand Prix back to the streets and as it rolls in the LEGP 50 will take place Nov. 9-11. More details will be coming in May.

Winterfest looks to return to the Imperial Valley Fairgrounds for 2018 and once again end the year on a solid racing weekend note! Details coming soon as we plan to go even bigger!
