Rob Mclendon Talks Track

Posted by NOLA Motorsports on Mar 5, 2016 3:24:06 PM

When the first pack of wild-eyed vintage motorcycle racers slides into turn 1 of NOLA Motorsports Park’s new flat track – either with just back breaks or none at all – there will be one man watching closer than the rest.

Rob Mclendon, or Robbie-Bobbie Mclendonshire as some call him (more on that later), is a man known across the Gulf South for his role in keeping motorcycle racing culture alive and well. After all, he’s been at it since he was a kid, making a hard leap from motocross to flat track racing when he was 14 by just showing up for a race one day.

When asked how that went, Rob took a deep breath and said, “Well, I sucked… horribly. I wrecked a few times and wasn’t sure if this was all that much fun. But I just went out on a race day thinking that because I was fast in other races, I’d be fast here. There’s just so much more technique. Long story short, I kept practicing and got better. In 2002, I got my first pro license.”

The NOLA Motorsports Event Center

Posted by NOLA Motorsports on Jan 15, 2016 8:00:00 AM

Some event spaces are featureless voids, not easily subdivided and often expensive to dress for an occasion. Some are so pre-sliced and pre-arranged that your event has to stage across several rooms or even in separate venues.

At NOLA Motorsports Park’s Event Center, you get flexibility--and personality, too--for events large and small.

Just off the main track at NOLA Motorsports Park, our versatile Event Center is a 34,000 square-foot space ready to take on the personality and purpose you need for your next event.
