Anybody Race In Fresno In The Early '80s?

Recommended Posts

I have a few pics of me trying out my new Quad at a track in Fresno, but don't remember the name of the track.

Can anybody help if I post the pics?

Here you go. Looks like J&D Racing on Belmont on the sign in the second pic.

I don't know if this is the place or not, but one of the BMX tracks in Fresno had one of those corrugated metal buildings that was a bike shop. I raced Stanley Robinson at that track. Was late '81 sometime. That dude was fast....

Thanks.

I look at these pics and wonder what I was thinking when I got those bars. They were gold anodized v-bars. I don't remember the brand, but they were small. I made the move from these to JMC Darryl Youngs.

They worked good for a while though. About this time frame, my racing abilities really started to pick up.

Great Pics!

We raced at Selma and I remember a track off Herndon in Fresno. I think that track was NBL, but not sure.

Hell yah I know this track. Thats J&Ds track. On Belmont and marks, Owned by the Berlins. They also had a killer bike shop next to the Track. the track and shop was family run. The two teenaged brothers Jerry 17/18 16 mainly ran the operation. UBR sanctioned e district. They also had a killer half pipe and quarter pipe alongside the track..

Its main haydays were the early 80s..

I use to race at J&D, the NBmxA and Visalia back in the day. I remember J&D well, it was an ABA track when I raced there in the early '80s.

The track they have now in FBX Woodward Park is RAD! We had an event there last year and Stanley Robinson showed up.

Great pic.

The second time I raced at that track I raced against Stanley. He was right next to me in the main that day.

That dude was fast!

J&D... that is one of the places I raced when I went to Fresno to visit my grandparents. I think I raced there twice. The people that ran the shop were great.

Did they run UBR and ABA at that track?
