RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. (KTXL) — Gary Gelfand got a preview of some of the exciting racing that will take place this weekend at the 53rd Hangtown Classic Motocross Race in Rancho Cordova.

This decades-long race started in Placerville in 1969 with the idea of bringing professional motocross to Northern California and more than 50 years later the race continues.
