Racing is in many off-roaders’ blood. The thrill and challenge of competition breeds winners and great times in most sports, but smashing the throttle and ripping through dirt is by far the most enjoyable form of racing to the Dirt Wheels crew. Not every race is the same, and in Castaic, California, they put on their signature Race Round the Lake. After a three-year-long break from putting on the racing event, the promoters brought it back in 2014 on November 14–16th. The three-day racing event, staged at Castaic Lake, held many classes—from beginner ATV racing to Unlimited UTV class. On the first day, the ATVs and UTVs got to tear up the course.

The grand-prix track had many types of terrain to battle through. The starting line was held on the edge of the lake where sand and silt challenged the racers. After that, riders got to hit the sidewalks of the park areas, which led into a wooded area with tight turns and technical sections. The motocross sections held jumps, turns and whoop sections that were tricky but fun. After riding on the sidewalk sections at Castaic Lake again, the laps concluded with the sand and silt all the way back to the starting line. Each moto had an elapsed time of 45 minutes, which gave the riders an average of five to six laps to compete through. The track was set up well, had many types of differing terrain and was a lot of fun for riders from beginners to experts. The last two days of the Race Around the Lake consisted of dirt bike racing.

The Castaic Race Around the Lake is not all about the riding and racing, though. There is a large camping area where people can get together and share stories of the day’s rides and enjoy good company for the weekend. Vendors like O’Neal MX, Jet World and BTO Sports had product booths set up as well in case racers needed any last-minute gear.
