To quote the movie itself: “Hulk Hogan eat your heart out!” Fans of the iconic BMX movie RAD will be mounting up on their Mongoose or Skyway bikes and heading just outside of Dallas Texas to TexPlex Park June 22-24, 2018 for a chance to “walk this sucker.” A festival honoring the film RAD is taking place with a full scale recreation of the legendary track that fans will get the chance to ride as well as a “BMX Boogie”, qualifying races, flatland freestyle, and, of course, an 80’s party.
Bill Allen, who played the hero Cru Jones, will be in attendance as will top industry riders to show off their BMX prowess. No word yet whether Lori Laughlin or Bart Connor will be making an appearance but keep posted here and we will bring you updates as they happen. Camping will be available as well as info on nearby hotel accommodations, pre-sale ticket info, and general info regarding the track on the TexPlex FaceBook page located here: https://www.facebook.com/helltracktexplex/
Time to dig out my checkered Vans slip-ons, polish up my GT Pro Series, throw on my Rad Racing shirt, and start racing my local police officers through the lumber mill so I can show off at TexPlex Park next June! I just hope they have the “KiX” sponsored cereal bowl for me to pull a gnarly air walk out of to take the lead in my final lap at Helltrack!! (Seriously, there was a giant cereal bowl!)
