“The Primm MX Collection is the SHRINE of all that is Moto. My entire life and childhood is in there. Like a motocrosser to Mecca, a Primm MX Collection pilgrimage is to be considered a requirement for passage to the big track in the sky, and you must visit to fulfill your obligation to the Moto-Gods. I think every rider’s meeting at every track in the world should take a moment to face towards Las Vegas and the Primm museum, and say thanks. It’s powerful. It’s amazing. All our moto history is there. Now, he just needs Madame Tussauds to start wax figures of the great racers of all time, starting with Joel Robert, DeCoster and RC.”

“It’s easy to take the success and mainstream popularity of motocross for granted today in this age of factory superstars, full stadiums, and weekly moto TV, but it wasn’t always so.

When I was a kid riding my ’69 Rupp Digger and dreaming about a Bonanza Mini Motocross, there was one motocross a year on TV, the Carlsbad GP on Wide World of Sports, and most people’s knowledge of motorcycling was limited to Evel Knievel and the Hell’s Angels.

A year later I attended my first motocross, the Trans Am event at Unadilla Valley in upstate New York. MY GOD! That gorgeous track… the cool damp weather and the fall colors. The electrifying sound of wide open expansion chambers… the smell of bean oil, and churned up top soil, the ultra cool gear, the trick European motorcycles and the invincible European Iron men that rode them, I was hooked !

Motocross has a rich history full of epic races, great riders, gutsy entrepreneurs, and visionary experimenters, and the Primm MX Collection showcases it all! When I visited the museum the sights and smells of that first race came flooding back to me as real today as they where that Sunday afternoon 35 years ago!”
– Rich Winkler – Dirt Wurx USA
