Reading about a kid killed earlier today off gecko loop and just now a vehicle went into the crowds killing a mom and her two daughters were life flighted out.
I remember this one, my dad was one of the first people on seen. When we got to him he was already gone (RIP).My last trip out to Glamis one of the Guys in our crew that I was riding with earlier that day passed. He was waiting for the Crew to get ready which took forever with a huge group. He was putting around by first set of dunes off Gecko with a few while waiting for everyone else. He just bought a new Raptor and always road a dirt bike. He has cut the new motorcycle grips he installed to clear the thumb throttle. I looked over everything possible on quad to figure out what went wrong. He was headed into the sun going up the dune in 4th gear. He had tie wire on grips but they rotated back enough where the thumb throttle could not return as the grips rotated where the throttle was stuck on rubber no longer in line with where he cut it. He was wide open in 4th when he flew off top off the dune. His front end collapsed in on impact snapping front shocks. He passed where he landed. I talked to him a few times but just met him. We had 95 in our crew and I did not here about the accident until dinner where it was announced along with a moment of silence. Crazy how fast things can go wrong out there. I hit a kiddie track wide open years ago. Another trip had a bolt come out my lower a arm and woke up to a chopper hovering over. Seen many fatalities and crashes. Last one hit close and have not been back since.
2 dead at Dumont
Wow, we sold everything after my wife’s situation and invested in our first havasu home with the proceeds from selling the car, coach and stacker. Best thing we ever did.2 dead at Dumont
6 dead at Glamis with a 2 more unconfirmed this am.
Sad deal for all involved with a hand full of the people injured at the drags in Mother G.
I read where the first fatality at Dumont this week resulted with a 55yr old male in a single RZR rolling with the cage collapsing we'll see how that one plays out im sure.
Agreed, we stopped going to Mother G about 6 years ago after 25+yrs. Seeing the carnage from the kids getting hit by the train to just arriving at Old's after a teenager was decapitated, drunk fng asshole driving through our camp full of kids to over zellas LEO's at 1am telling me to remove my cones from the rear of my enclosed trailer door so I'd have enough room to open my door to get my car out in the am, picking up a teenager all alone with a compound leg fracture lying in the dunes in shock then taking him back to camp to his pos family that had no idea where is was just to say a few.Wow, we sold everything after my wife’s situation and invested in our first havasu home with the proceeds from selling the car, coach and stacker.

Friend had the video of us beating the shit out of a few of them. We blocked there row and they started throwing full beers at trucks going by. They were about 30 deep. 2 of the main guys got bored with nobody to fuck with and ventured down our row. 1 dude must of been tweeking cause he got knocked out at least 6 times and came to again. Each truck that passed that recognized him stopped to get there share. Wild West out there back then. Jake used to drive my truck as the DD with a 45 on his lap to keep the crowd away from the ladies in our crew with 12 of us in the bed. Oh the stories we have from G. Part of my old crew out there now but nothing like early 2000s.For me it stopped being fun when people started digging holes in between the rows at Comp and Olds just so that they could laugh at people crashing.
