BOISE, Idaho — The Owyhee Motorcycle Club is one of the oldest clubs of its kind in the country and this year the OMC put together a triple crown race series to extend the season.

“I’ve been riding dirt bikes since I was three-years-old, it has been in the family blood and I didn’t know anything different," said Garry Reynolds the vice president of the board of directors for the club. "I’m actually the third generation up here.”

The club started back in the 1939 and has a very interesting history, for more on that check out their website.

The track is owned and operated by its members who elect a board of directors, Garry Reynolds is the third member of his family to serve on the board.

The club creates a family atmosphere among its members, but the OMC also provides a family atmosphere for the riders who race.

Chris Carter and his family made the trip from Mountain Home and although Chris races himself he told us he's more excited about getting his son Austin into the sport, he said the OMC is a perfect spot to do so.

"It is a nice sandy track, it is pretty safe and allows all levels of riders to come out here," said Chris Carter. " A lot of the parents get along here and there is no bad sportsmanship in this kind of sport.”

The Owyhee Motorcycle club is a non-profit that relies on member, volunteers and sponsors to conduct races and they told us they are always looking for more help.

The next two races in the triple crown series will be on October 13 and October 27.
