The West Coast Dirt Track Series will be holding its annual Willow Springs three-eighths-mile weekend this year on September 30 and October 1. The event will honor longtime dirt-track pioneer, friend, and shop owner Joey Brown from Paso Robles, California, who passed away last October.

Brown’s Cycles specialized in Yamahas but worked on everything, and if you were traveling down the 101 through Paso Robles, this was the place to stop to see what was going on, enjoy lively conversation, or get your bike fixed. It was just a short jaunt off the freeway to the shop on Stockdale Road. Brown’s Cycles was a longtime sponsor of the series, and this year there will be a special memorial race with members of Joe Brown’s family and closest friends on Sunday.

Specialty Fabrications Inc. is stepping up again as the sponsor of the Digger Helm Open Pro class, with cash-purse money that defies description for a nonsanctioned event. Terry Otton Racing is giving up $15,000 for the Dash For Cash! As always, there will be exciting racing from the Pros, as well as entertaining races from the Youth classes, the sport’s next young guns.

The kids tackle the track at Walt James Stadium.

Vintage classes highlight classic motorcycles and their pilots, and the regular support classes provide for a full day’s racing on Saturday and the big money awarded Sunday.
