Don't panic. That droning roar of high-revving machinery you hear this weekend belongs to the AMA Superbike Championships at Laguna Seca. The AMA bikes include Formula Extreme, Supersport, Superbikes and Road Bikes; the racers include pro, rookies and kids 12-14. Joining the custom road racing machines are the bikes of the SupermotoUSA--half motocross bike, half road bike, half dirt bike...hm--taking place lakeside at the same time. Supplementing this speedy stuff are autograph sessions, Rocket Nation stunt performers, Corona Beach sand volleyball, food, beer, vendors, bounce houses and more. Friday's fan party takes place at Embassy Suites 6-9pm, with drivers, barbecue ($10), demonstrations and raffle prizes. See website for full details. (See Outside story.) [WR]
