The Putah Creek Cafe is located at Railroad Avenue. More information contact: Northern California MGNOC Rep, Don Van Zandt at 707-557-5199.
The reason for getting these events started was to provide a fun, social atmosphere for Ducati owners, folks that want to become Ducati owners, and folks that don’t yet know that they want to become Ducati owners and people who are too poor (and/or sensible) to ever own Ducatis, to sit, eat, talk, walk around and look at other Ducatis. All brands and models of motorcycles are welcome, so please don’t be put off by the event name.

In 2014 the Ukiah Flat Track Series and the Prairie City Dirt Track Series merged to become Nor-Cal Short Track, operating a 9-race championship flat-track motorcycle racing series in Northern California. We are fortunate to have access to three exceptional 1/8th mile tracks on which to practice and to race.
The Nor-Cal Short Track mission is to encourage increased participation in the sport of flat track racing and nurture youth involvement. To those ends we have instituted a simple and cost effective set of rules and strive to keep the racing fun, family friendly, competitive, accessible and affordable.
