It was blast from the past as day 2 of racing got underway at Diamond Don's Vintage MX national on Sunday, April 23. Sunday classes were slated for a post- vintage era,1980s motocross bikes and there was no shortage. Beautifully restored rare vintage motocross bikes lined the gates as the nostalgia was poured on thick all day! Day 2 also hosted the second half of the 100cc Battle of the Bayou championship. The annual 100 race not only draws in former vet pros such as Guy Cooper but also lures in current pros for a chance to throw down on the small cc bikes. We loved watching these bikes come back to life this past weekend. If you would like any more information on vintage motorcycle racing or Diamond Dons check out this link. http://www.ahrma.org

Current Supercross competitor Scotty Wennerstrom was spotted early in the morning on a post vintage bike. Unfortunately, the motor would let go in practice forcing a DNS on the first Moto of the post vintage expert open age class. Scotty was lent another bike and went on to win the second Moto.Photo by Jacob Souder
