BMX sidehack races?

I live in the SFV and am checking for interest in doing some bmx sidehack races. I found an excellent downhill course that is about 2 miles long that has dirt, gravel, and rough paved sections complete with dips and switchbacks. I have built a few hacks for an event I did in the past and would like to use them again, I have 5 total, they are quickly made things out of what I had laying around, I'd have to spruce them up for this. That being said, is there any interest in doing a side hack down hill run? I'd say if you have some nice vintage piece, this would not be the event for you, I have more than I can use and would be happy to loan them out. I'd like to get at least 10 hacks for this and if it goes well, we could do it on a semi-regular basis. I've been organizing cycling events for over a decade now and I get draws from the 100's to 30 for my more hardcore events.
Right now, I have no date or time (most likely in the am) I am simply fishing for interest. Any comments or questions are welcome, as this will gauge whether or not I will set up the event, make flyers, promote etc. It will be a free event, I like to do these things for fun.
Here's some pics of my annual Halloween ride:
And some of my coaster brake only mountain bike race series:
I just want to give you an idea of what I can do, but of course it can't happen without people making the commitment to do the event.
thanks for your time
