Never got to race at Saddleback, it closed in 1984 due to financial troubles with insurance and land disputes. Located in the Santiago Canyon Hills of Irvine near Irvine Lake, Saddleback was started in 1968 and hosted many national "Trans-Am" races with legends like Danny "Magoo" Chandler, Bob "Hurricane" Hannah, Ken Howerton, Warren Reid, Jimmy Weinert, Jeff Ward, Rick Johnson, Ron Lechien, and Johnny "O'Show" O'mara. Those were the days...Pro Motocross behind the Orange Curtain. Photos: Vitalmx.com
