Motocross riders zipped around dirt tracks for the "Fast Times Moto Festival" held over the weekend in Paso Robles.

The annual motocross race has gained popularity over the years, recently expanding across two weekends.

Professional riders, local competitors and spectators packed the Paso Robles Event Center for the action.

On Saturday, people could stop by a vintage bike show and swap, listen to live music and watch practice races and opening ceremonies.

Sunday's activities entailed “Run-What-Brung” an open traction knobby tire racing on a rough scrambles course, with roller jumps.

The weekend event also offers a variety of classes for amateurs, vintage and kids.

"This is a great opportunity for a kid to learn if you do well, if you work hard, you get to play," said Johnny Murphree, event organizer. "You get to enjoy the spoils of that hard work, whether that's exercise and practicing on your bike, or if that's getting good grades in school so mom and dad let you get a bike to go out and ride."

The event will continue next weekend at the Paso Robles Event Center.
