Promoting races was the most fun I ever had. My only regret is not being able to make it my life's work. Even though it lasted for less than a decade, it played a major part in my life. Every now and then I get the opportunity to reminisce with a former or current racer and it always makes my day.

I was one of the early stadium motocross promoters and one of the first BMX promoters as well. The Antelope Valley Fairground motocross races began one year before the first Superbowl of Motocross at the LA Coliseum. The stock car races began as Jalopy races and in no time the racers were building and racing true dirt track stock cars that put on a great show.

Unfortunately the Fairground races were snuffed out by noise complaints from people who lived nearby. With no other facility in my area at the time, I moved on and ultimately went into the RV business. It was a great ride while it lasted and I'm forever grateful to all of the participants and fans who made it possible. I'm particularly indebted to all of the people who volunteered to help build the tracks, register racers, score the races and generally make sure that the show went on week after week.
