HELLO EVERYONE. Welcome to the TVRC "social network" website. There's bound to be some folks on here you already know, some folks you knew way back when, and some folks you haven't yet met, so please take time to visit members' individual pages. Check out all the great photos that have been posted. Some of which, you may recognize from the pages of publications back in the day. Most of them, however, are simply candid shots that evoke the greatness of it all. Also, be sure to check out the official Texas Vintage Racing Club website at: http://www.tvrc.org   for race news, results, club rules (gotta have em'!), race class structure, and other good information.

Speaking of TVRC, membership dues are just $40.00 per year! That entitles you to a free dinner at the Annual TVRC Banquet, entry to various other TVRC social functions , a chance for free items such as tires, jackets, race clothing, motorcycle lubricants, and plenty of other cool schwag which is awarded to members at each annual banquet, as well as other times throughout the year.

Unofficial benefits include making some new buddies (you know you could use em'!), historically accurate and un-distorted discussion of racing and all things vintage-moto related. MOST IMPORTANTLY, your dues paying membership helps to insure that Texas Vintage Racing Club continues to lead all others as the longest running, continually active vintage motocross club in America. Pretty cool, eh?

To join the club, just buzz over to the other site ,http://www.tvrc.org/ and click on the "TVRC Member Application Link".   You'll find it located in the left-hand margin. In the meantime, we enjoy your company on this site and encourage you to spread the word to any and all who know and appreciate the greatness of vintage motocross!
