Hangtown Motrocross

June 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT

Founded in March 1968, the Dirt Diggers North Motorcycle Club (DDNMC) embarked on a plan to present a motocross competition that would bring top riders to Northern California. As a result, the Hangtown Motocross Classic was born. The first DDNMC race was held at Murray’s Ranch outside of Placerville in 1969. The race took its name from the Gold Rush days, when Placerville was known as “Hangtown.” With a turnout of about 150 sportsman riders and 30 pros, the event (with its $600 pro purse) set the stage for Hangtown’s future.
