Motorcycle racing, camping, and a party fit for any age took place this past weekend during the Red Bull Day in the Dirt Motocross Grand Prix at Glen Helen Raceway in Southern California. This year marked the 22nd running of this festive race, which takes place every Thanksgiving weekend. What began as a couple days of off-road riding fun for the Hollywood stunt community has evolved into a family-friendly shindig that encourages dirt bike racing, sportsmanship, and camaraderie for all riders, regardless of skill. This year Mother Nature played its own trick on competitors with a deluge of rain and cold weather making camping more tricky, but also primo track conditions. Check out some of our favorites photos from the event. Interested in kicking up roost? Sign up at dayinthedirt.com and see you next year.

Getting loose after dark is always a part of Day in the Dirt—this year an ’80s cover band rocked inside Glen Helen’s barn.

Pick a rut. If you like railing ruts, this year’s track at Glen Helen Raceway was full of them.

The Day in the Dirt track is a grand prix-style course that uses a multitude of natural and manmade features to create a long and challenging (but not overly so) course.
