After the sold out screening before a capacity crowd of 1,500 at the Spreckels Theatre in San Diego, the Marty Moates movie is coming home to Carlsbad.

In conjunction with the DVD world premiere of the seminal documentary covering the first time an American won the United States Grand Prix of Motocross at the original Carlsbad Raceway, Carlsbad USGP: 1980 – One Day Of Magic is set for a special weekend of screenings at the historic 1927 Carlsbad Village Theatre on State Street.

"It’s time to bring the film home to Carlsbad for a special weekend commemorating the release of the long-awaited DVD," explains Todd Huffman, the film’s producer.

"The weekend will kick-off with a special DVD release event on Friday, October 1st, which includes:

  • Special Screening of "The Carlsbad USGP: 1980 – One Day of Magic Presented by Daystar Products" Show starts at 7:30 with a quick live auction of an original ABC Wide World of Sports Banner used at Carlsbad Raceway for the USGP and a chance to meet USGP motocross legends in attendance;
