I don't know exactly why it is changing hands, but hopefully it stays with the MX community.

That place has some great history. I watched Bob Hannah and other top pros race a MX national back in '78 when I was a boy! Over the years people have offered to purchase it for good money but original owners wouldn't sell it. Last time I rode there was back in '02. It was looking pretty rough then. They only prepped the track on race day and the supercross track was unridable. But when it was nice and prepped I loved that track!

I loved that track too. I remember seizing a rm125 in mid air on that track. Hopefully a mx lover will fix it up the way it was in its prime.

according to another forum, it sounds like Rio Bravo has been purchased over by a new owner, and it will be in good hands. I hope this is true.

Tuesday I think was the rumored scheduled public auction. There are tidbits of info on houstonmotocross.com but not anything really detailed.

Al told me he only allowed a few exceptions with the quads. I definitely will miss Al and the dogs, and Al waving the fees. I usually had to almost force him to take the money.
