Pablo, MT - For the second time this season, Mission Valley Speedway and a handful of the cars and drivers that race there were involved in an attention getting project held this past Sunday.
The Chicago group, Atom Bomb Pocket Knife, used the speedway as the location for a music video! The video was shot from 9:00 PM to Midnight, July 2nd, incase anyone heard continual music or saw lights in the direction of the Speedway Sunday night! ABP is an up and coming alternative rock group that put together music to the lyrics of the song Motorheads written by local journalist, Walter Simon.
Simon wrote the song to go along with the MVAR documentary that he and Frank Tyro have been working on since early 1999. The documentary will be available for sale in the near future, and may even possibly been seen on PBS television channels across the US!
The band arrived in town Sunday evening after driving in from a Seattle gig that they played on Saturday night! The band also hopes to be able to play the Motorheads song live to the MVS crowd sometime in the future if their schedule allows it.
The video was shot in the middle of the winner's circle, with racecars as background. The local drivers and officials that were filmed in the video were Tracy and Jarred Burland, Lynn and RJ Olsen, and Carl & Stefanie Nordberg. Kalispell Street Stock driver, Debbie Eickhorst, who took second place in the MVAR 1999 Pepsi/Pizza Hut Streets, made it down for the video shoot as well!
The Mission Valley Auto Racers would like to thank Walter Simon and Frank Tyro for all the hard work they have done in the last two years on the MVS documentary, as well as a big thank you to the members of the group Atom Bomb Pocket Knife!
