This is the worst kind of news to share, but I know that many of us ride at the Lake Elsinore Track.

An article in the June 5 edition of the Orange County Register read: "A Huntington Beach man was fatally injured Sunday when his dirt motorcycle crashed at a motocross track in Lake Elsinore, California. The rider, Thomas Sarac, 39, was negotiating jumps at the lake side course when he flipped and landed on his head at about 10:30 a.m."

Godspeed to you Thomas.

Sometimes we need to realize our own mortality. We all to often take for granted good health and the gift of life.
Our time here is to short and I simply hope he was having fun when this tragity occured. I feel for his family and friends.
Godspeed, Ernie

My Heart, My Faith, My Prayers, and My Plea's are with all who knew Mr. Sarac. May GOD watch over and comfort his family, his friends, and all those who ride/race at Lake Elsinore Track.

I humbly ask, that those who knew him, or those who have ridden with him at that track, would respectfully consider holding a moment of silence for him before the next race, or even consider wearing an armband in the color of his THUMPER! All to his memory!

Let us all keep the Sarac's in our hearts!

May the LORD comfort YOU!
May HE heal your greif!
and protect those who race in his wake.

God Bless!

Wow, for once I'm glad I decided not to go to Elsinore on Sunday. I never like to see or witness people getting injured. Crashes are cool once the person gets up and you realize they are okay. I've witnessed one death in my life and that was one too many. Injury is a part of our sport but I hope and pray that none of our injuries are drastically life changing.

When in doubt, GAS IT!
What are you, YELLOW?

Hey fellas!!
I myself crashed there 3weeks ago!;( I'm not the guy Flnn is refering to, but I crashed good myself!! I had 2 fractured ribs and a serious contusion to my whole right leg!! From my thigh to my big toe!! It was swollen for a week and a half!! And it was the first time I actually saw stars!! But I have recovered and I'm going out riding tomorrow morning!! June 16.. :D
If anyone is interested??
I drive a White Chevy S-10, lifted with a light bar on the front. I'll be riding a newly redone "00"426F(New bars, grafics and seat,had to replace from the crash)and have the #121 on it. No-Fear gear with an Answer helmet. :)
Hope to see some of you there.
