DZP Event Video from May 2007 at STMX, Oscar clips are throughout the video, thought I would share it again with everyone.  In one part he is battling with Dean Dyess, gets off the track, and makes sure he does not gain a position and kinda waits for Dean to go by.  That was the type of individual Oscar was.  He will be so missed by the MX Community.

Or you can right click here and download a smaller version video to your computer.

Today was a very very sad day.  Most of you have probably already heard, Oscar Diaz was shot while traveling home after a race.  This is such a tragedy.  I just keep seeing his wonderful smile over and over again, and it saddens me that there are real sick people in this world.

Oscar you will be missed!
