Hi Everyone,

I'm proud to say we're ready for the 2nd Annual Chandler BMX Reunion. The event was aimed at bringing all of our friends/family out to AZ01, one of the longest standing tracks in AZ with a history as deep as the ABA itself. Last year we had a full parking lot despite only 100 members on our "official" Facebook page. One year later that number has TRIPLED! We saw old friends, tested our luck riding the track, and even saw generations of ABA staff and Presidents. It's feasible to say brought old friends together and helped create memories that will last a lifetime... that said, LET'S DO IT AGAIN!

The location is at the Chandler BMX track at 900 E Frye Rd Chandler, AZ 85225 (NW Corner of McQueen and Frye).

This year we'll have a few more items on schedule such as a group photo to ensure EVERYONE makes the photo. Also, you will have the opportunity to ride the track and even practice a few gates (keep in mind the old cadence is gone and random start gates are the wave of the future!)

Many people are not on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=170246417556 so to ensure we get everyone out there, PLEASE mention it to your friends that rode at ANY track. This is as much about the friends/family made in this sport as it is about riding. All riders from all tracks are welcome. The event itself is a NO COST and riders even shared bikes last year to get everyone on the track that wanted to be...no excuses, just come be a part of it!

We have the track from 11am-2pm. There is a private party scheduled afterward, so it's important that everyone makes it in that window of time. Expect the group photo around 12:30-1PM.

Any questions just let myself or Ken Saffin know.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

I Remember "meat" before he even raced, showed up w/ a comb in his fro at the jaycees track in down town scottsdale. i have a lot of dirt on many friends from the east side racing from 75 to 77. Kris and Mike Bartlett were invovled with the kids as they sponsored many on there team/
Mothers custom moto crossers and we smoked all the other teams around the state! esp.green machine! Carl "Meat" Webster , tommy the frog barlett, Mike & Russ Young, Jeff the nose osterle,
bob crash lawerence , Jerry Byron. Carl and Phil Rausch are still my friends=Ray Fox...
More names, Marty Hassett ,Tim Webb, Bob & Rick Miller, Tony cholewa Iggy & Bobby lee Jackson , I think az 1st nba 1 plate was Dennis lee and we raced at the baja track down on thomas an 35th ave. I know Bob Jackson had a bunch of video from the legend city track and
i am visiting az. now and need to see if he is still around. Also there was a scandal with a racer who was a little older than he looked a got away w/ it one season until it got un-covered.
I won the ibmx state championship in '77 when Big ED timmson took out a super fast dude
from tucson and i got lucky that day, on chandlers race track with the bonzai, this was just before Merl mennega? started the aba... Can't remember the super fast dudes name..

I remember most all the names being posted here. Dude! Leroy "Lee": Harding won the '77 IBMX state championship, as well as the first ABA #1 plate. I know because it's me :-). raced many times against Faysak. Meat, Jerry, R. Young, big Ed etc were all alittle older.
