Chap Moto Throwback Thursday Supercross Pre-Party And Bike Night
This past January
Chaparral Motorsports hosted
its first ever winter (or at least what we here in Southern
California consider to be winter) bike night event and it was a
great success. Sponsored by Parts Unlimited the event was a
combination Bike Night and Supercross Anaheim 3 pre-party with
bike, cruiser, and dirt bike enthusiasts from all over Southern
California admiring custom motorcycles, top of the line race bikes,
chatting with parts and gear vendors, and excited to meet and snap
photos with top Supercross and motocross racers.
The event took place on a Thursday evening, so it only made sense to turn it into a Throwback Thursday themed party with iconic racers from the past such as Jeremy McGrath, Broc Glover, Mike Bell, Sebastien Tortelli, Jeff Emig, and Larry Brooks on hand to sign autographs and meet fans. There was also a Throwback Gear contest with contestants digging into the dark corners of their closets and showing up in bright neons and Oakley blades for a chance to win prizes for best dressed. Of course we had a strong group of current top riders like Blake Baggett, Jessy Nelson, Shane McElrath, Davi Millsaps, and Darryn Durham from teams like Troy Lee Designs/KTM, Suzuki/Yoshimura, and Kawasaki on hand getting everyone excited for the Supercross race on Saturday evening.
The Chaparral parking lot was lined with massive big rigs from companies such as Thor, Moose Racing, Drag Specialties and vendors showing off their latest products. Inside the store we had an assortment of gear, casual apparel, and accessories all at special Throwback Pricing. Everyone enjoyed themselves, it was a great first time event and Chaparral looks forward to possibly doing it again.
