Trackercross

Rusty Butcher's take on racing

Mark Atkins of Rusty Butcher saw a void in the current Hooligan racing world for an event that was heavily based on fun and a little bit of mayhem. Just like the beginning days of Hooligan racing, Trackercross was about doing laps with the homies and enjoying a beer after races.

If it had two wheels, or sometimes three or four, there was mostly likely a class for it to be raced at Trackercross. Hooligans, pitbikes, ATCs, fully street-legal bikes, and bitchin' vintage tank-shift bikes all had their time out on the tracks. Speaking of the tracks, there were two of them. A traditional flat track (dubbed Helltrack) and a "supercross" track that featured nice rolling tabletop jumps and high banked berms that were perfect for the wide variety of machinery that took to them.

Look at the video and photos to see the good times had by all. Word on the street is that there will be another Trackercross in the fall. You do not want to miss it when it happens! It will be the most fun you have had behind the bars in a while, trust us.

Like we mentioned, if it had handlebars, it was raced at Trackercross. This moped may not have been the quickest around the track, but the the smiles and good-natured laughs it brought were huge.
