To top things off, the second annual Moto Beach Classic combines Super Hooligan street bike flat track racing, drag and mini bike racing, art, custom motorcycles and, of course, the love of two wheels. The event will feature a dirt track on the sand for the first time ever and two days of Super Hooligan flat track racing.

Mike Ness of Social Distortion said, "This is an incredible lineup of bands over two days, and combined with Roland Sands' Moto Beach Classic, this is going to be an awesome show. To be a part of an event like this that's never been done before is pretty cool. It's going to be a lot of fun."

Dexter Holland of The Offspring added, "Can't wait to hang out on the beach with some of our SoCal punk friends and idols when we play Surf City Blitz."

Roland Sands of Roland Sands Design, founder and producer of The Moto Beach Classic, explained, "The Moto Beach Classic is coming back bigger than ever as the Super Hooligans join the Surf City Blitz this October! It's been a dream of mine to build a dirt track on the beach and we are making that happen with berm bleachers next to a massive stage with the sickest OC lineup of all time. The OffspringSocial DRancidPennywiseBad ReligionSuicidal Tendencies…the list keeps going. It's a moto lover's dream with drag races, mini road race, bike show, moto inspired art and much more. This is the only event you have to be at in 2018!"

John ReeseSurf City Blitz festival producer and founder of Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE) said, "We couldn't ask for a more perfect setting to enjoy performances from the greatest collection of punk rock ever assembled in SoCal, combined with the mind-blowing excitement of the Moto Beach Classic, right on the sand at Southern California's world famous Huntington State Beach! This massive event will be remembered for years to come! I want to thank California State Parks for allowing us to hold the event at such an ideal location."

Last year's inaugural Moto Beach Classic was a one-day festival where, from sunup to sundown, SeaLegs at the Beach in Bolsa Chica was at capacity and filled with lovers of all types of creativity and counterculture. At any given moment, engines could be heard on the purpose-built hooligan flat track, while waves crashed along the shore. Live music echoed throughout until the doors closed on what many thought was one of the most entertaining and authentic moto events to hit the coast of California in years.
