SOUTHWICK, Mass. (WWLP) – It was like home week for many motocross fans and competitors in Southwick on Sunday.
Hundreds of riders took part in the day’s events, which organizers claim are bigger and better than before national competition was discontinued at the Southwick track.
Riders who cut their teeth at the American Legion-owned track told 22News what it meant to them to compete here again.
Keith Johnson of Carver said, “My first race here was in 1977, so a long time ago. I grew up racing here, turned professional racer for 20 years, raced all over the country, all over the world, really.”
Organizers told 22News fans have remained faithful to the Southwick track during the more than 20 races held each year near the American Legion post on Powder Mill Road.
