LAUREL TO ANDERSON 209 BMX RACE TEAM as well as the City of Manteca plus developers Mike Atherton and Bill Filios for the continuing success story known as Spreckels Park BMX track.
The three-way partnership provided the community with a top level BMX course at a high profile and easily accessible location in a storm basin. The course was dedicated seven years ago this month at minimum cost to the city thanks to the efforts primarily of Anderson 209 Race Team.
The group’s small army of volunteers since 2010 has not only staged competitive races on the American Bicycle Association sanctioned course that is 1,200 feet long with three 180 degree banked turns as well various jumps but they have made it available at other times for use by the general public.
Since 2010 the Anderson 209 Race Team has maintained the track saving the city between $15,000 and $28,000 a year. The only expense the city incurs is liability insurance for use by the general public when there are no ABA sanctioned events taking place.
The agreement with Anderson 209 Race Team for track maintenance is before the Manteca City Council during tonight’s meeting for a two year extension. This time around, the city is proposing a $1,000 contribution to the organization to help it offset costs that it incurs each year maintaining the track at the corner of Moffat Boulevard and Spreckels Avenue.
