Wilco, thanks for your help and humor.
DeCarlo, how ya doing it’s Ese’ from MarylandMotocross.com.
AD: All right
how have you been?
I’m only 5’7” so I’m pretty mad at the world, but other than that, pretty
good. You got a couple minutes for an interview?
and Kevin wanted me to get some information about the history of Blue
Diamond and the “Viva La Bam” shooting, so lets start out with the history.
The people must know: How did Blue Diamond come to be?
shhhhh, I don’t know. The people that own the land I talked about it one
day and then just decided to build it.
okay. And how long have you been running the track?
AD: Almost 2
years now. 2 years in August.
Really? Wow, I know it's a real popular track.
AD: Well, you
know it’s good.
would you attribute the success of the track to?
AD: I’m hoping
that it’s the way I run the place (laugh)
say so, everything is always organized, the track always looks good…
AD: It’s a
challenging track, you know, I’m lucky to have a great staff and
great. So do you ever ride?
(Laugh) I haven’t rode for 20 years.
made you stop?
pause, laugh) I dunno.
MMX.com: I know
The mann with the Black Socks, K. Duffy hasn’t rode in a long time too, do
you think you, in your prime could have taken him in his?
AD: (Laugh) I
don’t think he ever had a Prime. (Laugh) Just kidding. Ummm, probably
not. The Duff Mann was pretty fast.
heard from his brother, Big Duff and others that he rode dirty, he’s even
admitted it, and I’ve seen him bowl over an old woman to get to talk to
Travis Pastrana, so I could see it, do you have any thoughts on that?
I’d believe it to be true. You gotta keep an eye on that guy.
personally say keep 2 eyes on him.
AD: Come to
think of it Ese’ I’ve seen him ride here one time, on a 70 I believe, last
(Laugh) Oh yeah I remember that he looked like one of them clowns at the
circus riding those tiny tricycles. I was waiting for him to start
AD: Yeah, I believe that I could
have beat him that day (Laugh)
Kewl. Do any of your kids ride?
AD: Yeah, my
oldest one does: Matt DeCarlo
mentioned before that you had a great staff, can you give us some of the
names on your “Dream Team”?
Jason, Rence, Matt, Matt (laugh), Matt Grace that is; Huckabuck, We
have numerous volunteers, I couldn’t really name them all, but I know that
without them, things wouldn’t run as smoothly as they normally do.
Awesome, so lets talks about this guy Huckleberry…
him too. This guy never wants to hold the MarylandMotocross sign, whad up
with that homie?
AD: I don’t
know why, maybe he’s wanted somewhere or something and doesn’t want his
Someone says he just doesn’t like Maryland very much.
AD: Uh, I don’t
know about all that. He works here in Delaware and he lives here. Maybe he
just likes Delaware more.
I’m just sayin’ he’d better dot his T_s and cross his I_s around me. So
anyways, what was the whole deal with “Viva La Bam”?
AD: One of my
good friends, Tim, who’s a producer, gave me a call and said that they
wanted to do a shoot down here because they had The Metal Militia coming.
That’s how it all got started and they came down here and did 5 days worth
of shooting. That’s how it all got started.
MMX.com: Was it
5 crazy days?
5 LONG, crazy days.
so I guess you got to meet Bam, his mom, and his uncle?
AD: Yup, I got
to meet the whole gang.
tell us about this Don Vito guy. Is he as crazy as they make him out to be
AD: Yes he is.
Don Vito is the mann.
MMX.com: Now, I see Bam fighting him
all the time, how do you think you’d fare against him?
AD: Ummm, if I
could knock him down and run… I would.
It is my
understanding that there were some well-known motocross riders in attendance
AD: Yes, Brian
Degan, Todd Potter, Ronnie Faisst, one they call “Scummy”, which is Colin
Morrison, and Stanley.
they were pretty much wowing the crowd with some freestyle tricks?
Plenty of freestyle stuff, backflips, huge jumps, and a lot more fancy
MMX.com: I bet
they liked that big triple you got.
AD: Yeah they
rode the motocross track too. They had fun.
MMX.com: So it
was cool having The Metal Militia and Bam’s crew there?
AD: Yeah, it
was fun. Different, but fun.
HUCK-A-BUCK was here (laugh)
heard that he and Don Vito got into an altercation over an energy drink …
Yeah, he tried to duke it out with Don Vito, but Don Vito just laughed at
what days and what times is Blue Diamond open?
AD: We are open
Wednesday thru Sunday. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday we’re open Noon to
7. Saturday and Sunday we’re open 10-7. Those are Summer Hours.
MMX.com: I know
that you have a lot of vendors, people in sales, and other businesses out
there, any specific ones come to mind. Names or things that they sell at
AD: The guys
from Moto Jockey are here 5 days a week, most of the time. They sell parts
and apparel. We also have Powersports, D&E Cycles, and a lot others.
MMX.com: You’ve hosted many great
riders and we’ve seen some spectacular races there. What rider would you
say is the “Flavor of the Month” right now?
AD: I’d say
that Chad Wages has been at the top of the list here for this year.
MMX.com: I am
somewhat familiar with “The Ricky Martin of Motocross” that’s what those
crazy kids are calling him these days. Your track has many riders like him,
and you seem to be pretty good at keeping everything fresh for the crowd.
Are there any changes, additions, or improvements that we need to keep an
eye out for?
AD: As far as
the track goes, in the near future I plan on making some serious
modifications. Just don’t want to release them for now. Gotta keep it
secret. Don’t want anyone trying to copy off us.
well, we here at MMX.com know very well what that’s like. But, you heard it
all here, a MarylandMotocross.com exclusive from Mr. Alan DeCarlo.
MMX.com: Can you give us a time
window or guesstimation as to when these changes may take place.
AD: Well, I try
to make changes before every race, but as far as the major ones that we have
in mind; probably August or September.
there any sponsors or people in particular that you’d like to send a shout
Jockey, Vision Graphics, Matt from Vision Graphics is going to be a future
sponsor, Roosting.com, Pro Action in Allentown, Diamond Motorsports, can’t
really think of anymore right now, but the list is very long.
MMX.com: So did
you get any face time with any of the “Viva La Bam” cast?
AD: I sat down
with Don Vito, Bam himself… pretty much all of them I had a chat with at
were they terrors or did they seem pretty nice in person?
they were all very nice and extremely down to Earth, a lot different than
they are portrayed on the show.
us about the Brian Degan incident.
AD: He… did
suffer a life-threatening injury here. He lost a kidney while doing a
trick. He managed to tear an artery right off of it.
sounds really nasty. Wow that sounds almost as painful as watching Vance
AD: I’d think it was more painful
you’ve never seen Vance dance obviously. So, how is Brian doing. Is he
AD: I spoke to him last week and he
says that he is doing real good. He’ll be going to the gravity games this
week and says he’s looking forward to seeing the rest of the militia there.
He’s not riding, not for a couple months, but he’s confident that he’ll be
back into it soon.
Allan, thank you for your time and your info, we look forward to seeing you
and your wonderful staff, even HuckleBuckle.
Great, thanks and we’re always happy to have you and anyone else that would
like to come out and see us.
