Championships have already been decided in the two AMA outdoor motocross series, but a pair of remarkable winning streaks will be on the line today in the season finale at Glen Helen Raceway Park in Devore. Ricky Carmichael clinched his fifth consecutive 250cc title last week and will attempt to complete his second undefeated season on the hillside course. The Honda rider from Havana, Fla., went undefeated in 2002, a feat never before accomplished.

The promoter of a three-day rock festival scheduled to open Saturday at Glen Helen Regional Park accused San Bernardino County officials on Monday of attempting to undermine his event. Michael Scafuto, promoter of Rock 'n' Roll's Main Event, alleged that his organization was denied access to the park and could not begin preparing for the festival because the San Bernardino County Parks Department violated his contract and rented the grounds to a second promoter last weekend.

Renaissance Faire, Glen Helen Regional Park, Sierra Avenue exit from Highway 15 near Devore, San Bernardino County. (800) 52-FAIRE. Saturdays and Sundays May 13 to June 25, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission $14.50; parking $2. What could be nicer on a day in June than a Renaissance Pleasure Faire, particularly at the Faire's idyllic new San Bernardino County location? Of course, you don't really go back in time at one of these things. The games and stage entertainment may be rigorously authentic, the costumes and accents pretty authentic, but the food . . . well, the Elizabethans knew not the potato nor the tomato, neither yet the chocolate syrup nor the ice cream.
