The Odessa Record -

White Knuckle, Frostbite live up to their names

Casey Starkey won the kid-sized helmet in a raffle held during the White Knuckle/Frostbite weekend.

Last weekend's motocross racing took place south of town on sagebrush-covered land in weather more winter-like than it had been just a few weeks before. It was also windy, which brings with it the wind chill factor.

Taylor Roberts won the adult-sized helmet.

But the Stumpjumpers Motorcycle Club members are a hardy bunch, and they turned out in even larger numbers than they had last year, as reported by Odessa police chief Tom Clark at last night's town council meeting. He also said there were no reported serious injuries or any other disturbances among the many riders who camped in their RVs.

This weekend is Easter, so the Desert 100 will follow on April 7/8, and the campers will be back for another weekend of competition and camaraderie, poker runs, raffles and all the other exciting things that take place at such a huge event.

The two young fellows at right each won a helmet in a raffle held during this past weekend's events. Other smaller items were raffled off as well, such as gloves, goggles and other items used by motocross riders.

We were not aware of any local Odessa riders in this year's events, so please contact The Record if you are able to provide any local results.
