A huge crowd of over 500 motocross riders and spectators ventured to Morris Park Speedway on Sunday as Dubbo Dirt Bike Club hosted its annual Mac Daddy Cup charity race day.
The Mac Daddy Cup commemorates local dirt bike rider, Mitch Mackay, who passed away in 2014 after a battle with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.
Dubbo Dirt Bike Club donates all proceeds from the day to cancer charities, raising over $4,000 at this year's event which will be donated to support programs at Dubbo's new Western Cancer Centre.
Dubbo Dirt Bike Club president Ben Woldhuis said the club was happy with this year's event.
"The Mac Daddy Cup is all about commemorating our local rider Mitch Mackay who passed away from cancer and also raising funds to support the new Western Cancer Centre in Dubbo", he said.
"We're really happy with the support we've received from local business this year, and the riders who've travelled from all over the state to help make the event such a success", he continued.
