Press Release – Guam International Raceway Motorcycle and Atv Corporation (GIRMAC)
2015 Guam New Years Motocross

This past Sunday Guam’s motocross racers and fans were back out at the Guam International Raceway for a very special event the Gary Camacho Motocross Tribute. Gary, who was an avid motocross racer and was loved and admired by fans and by his fellow racers, had lost his life in a tragic accident just after midnight this past New Years Eve.

Riders both young old came out to participate in this very special event with a large turnout of both riders, friends, and family in support. Just before the start of the racing a large contingent of riders wearing blue #88 Gary Camacho t-shirts went on a parade lap around the GIR motocross track. The parade lap was held in tribute and memory of Gary with Gary’s own children riding dirt bikes and driving a Utv leading the way around the GIR motocross course. With clear skies, cool breezes, and the smell of barbeque in the air it was a fantastic day of motocross all in memory and in tribute for a rider, husband and a father for whom all of our local motocross enthusiasts will most surely not ever forget.
