Texas MX in the ’70s

May 11th, 2008 · No Comments · Racing, Vintage

ridersdigestcover-smallHere’s another cool site found via Texan Paul Burnett – Rider’s Digest. This vintage Texas MX weekly was produced from the mid 1970s through the early 1980s (I think) and followed the MX scene in Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana. I don’t remember ever seeing it, which is odd because ’77-’83 were my most active racing years. My ’74 Ford Econoline with the straight six and three-speed shuffled me and bikes all over the state to race at Swan MX, Rio Bravo, Burleson, Wolf Creek, Mosier Valley, and Lake Whitney, among others. But it’s neat to look back at the race reports from the local tracks I ran as a kid. The site is a bit hard to navigate. It would be nice if the owner could add a “Home” link to each page instead of having to back through all the pages to get to the index. But that’s a nit. It’s a fun site.
