“Knobby News” Pitboard Messages to your favorite rider!

Each year since 1977 the MSC has published a Season Yearbook called the “Knobby News”.  The Knobby News lists rider placement, stats, interesting facts, news for the next season and so on.  Many riders still have copies of MSC Motocross History tucked away as a keep sake for years! 

Today’s Knobby News is a 40 page full color magazine and you can only get one by being a member of the Metropolitan Sports Committee.  Riders race hard to earn a place in this booklet.  Family and friends have an opportunity to show their love and appreciation to their favorite rider(s) by purchasing a PIT BOARD message in the Knobby News.

This weekend's final puzzle piece!

Completed Puzzle looks like this!

We want to thank everyone who attended our races over the last 29 years.  John Coen and myself have worked hard to keep Diamondback MX one of the most exciting motocross race tracks to race and spectate at. 

For 2022,  we purchased a place where the soil is AWESOME, the folks in the town are eager to have us racing there so, we are excited to bring to you Diamondback MX 3.0 in the Spring of 2022.  The new track is located on our farm, The Ranch at Carlisle,  in Carlisle, NY.  We promise, you will not be disappointed!

We would like to thank our motocross friends and family for all these years building the track, keeping the place operational and as safe as possible.  We would also like to thank the East Durham community including Durham Ambulance and most notably Danny Linden and his dad Rich Linden from providing excellent service for almost 10 years!  We would like to thank the Milk Run, Lawyers Deli, Angel’s Pizza, Stewart’s Shops, Big Top Portable Toilets, Hanniford’s Market, Dalton’s Donuts and Gas, Home Depot, and the BlackThorn Resort.
