On Memorial Day weekend, we ran in an MX vs ATV Money race at Ukiah MX.
They announced during the pre-race practices that someone suggested doing a money race... so I went up and half kidding asked if ATVs were allowed to race too. No one really knew what to say :) The dirt bike guys talked about it and everyone decided "sure why not". So Paul and I signed up. There were 6 of us total, 4 bikes and 2 ATVs.
Moto 1: on the holeshot, one bike beat me to turn 1 by a bike length or so and 2 others where about side by side with me. I came out of turn 1 side by side with one of the bikes, racing for 3rd, going over the 1st 2 tables next to him. I got by him and after a couple more turns passed the next bike too; moving into 2nd. I chased the leader for a lap or so and then passed him. He didn't back down, however, he was right on me the entire moto. Finish was ATV (me), bike #33, ATV(Paul)

Moto 2: again one bike beat us to the 1st turn... but this time as he slowed for the turn Paul and I slid around him and were off. I lead most the race, with Paul right on my tail, until the last lap when I over shot a table and Paul got around me. Finishing ATV (paul), ATV (me), bike #33.
So finial results Me, Paul, bike #33.

The bike guys were cool about it and it was a lot of fun.

Here is a video with two helmet cams and a stationary camera blended together:

nice job guys you beat them pretty good. i remember in my arena cross days we went to a little track in longview washington and quads werent allowed on the big track, they had a little track set up for the quads it was a joke the quad track was for beginner little kids. Well long story short last day we were there i went out there and got 3 good laps in before they had about 10 people out there to stop and escort me outa there. after that a whole bunch of guys took off out there. They found out a quad could run that track as fast or faster then a bike. The following year they opened it for quads and bikes.
