Born Free 10 - Stampede Race

by Savannah Rose on June 27, 2018

Thomas of Zero Hour may not be fast but he sure is patriotic!

In it's second year, the Born Free Stampede has gone crazy!

Now located at the Industry Hil ls Expo Center in So Cal, this went from a pretty standard Hooligan race to being absolutely overrun by motos of all kinds. Something like 60 minibikes hit the track, with countless hooligan racers.. seriously! I used to know pretty much all the hooligans by name, and now there are so many I can't keep track of who's who!

Think they'd notice if this bike went missing for.. the amount of time it takes to do about 6 laps? I'd love to ride it..

That's hooligan racing for ya..

All the goofballs you know and love to watch race were there - Noise Cycles, SM Co, who included Stephanie Pietz, a dirtbike racer turned flat tracker, Anya of Babes Ride Out, Meatball, of Hell On Wheels - who's been hosting races as long as I can remember! - Buddy Suttle of Unknown, Bill and Mike of Biltwell, the Beer Breed Racing guys, and so many more! And of course, some guy who looked suspiciously like Cheech Marin rolling around on a pull-start mini bike.. 

8M2A4377

As always, the racing was bar-banging, sometimes crashing, dirt flying action. Seriously, I generally leave the trackside absolutely covered in dirt!

Check out the video and all the photos for the best of the action!
