Moto810, there's a big difference between Ping touching on a subject we all know about, and offering his take, like what he actually wrote about expansion: "In all seriousness, they are looking at a globalization of supercross and I’m afraid it will ... more »

"i think this is why the changed it to East / West to move Sandbaggers like Lamson and Brown up?" The East-West idea came about back in the planning stages of the 125cc Class in 1985 as a way to make following the series affordable to privateers and ... more »

The old 125cc USGP and Trans-AMA track called Mid-Ohio in Lexington... All's that is the rise of the old starting gate pad and the old farmhouse behind it, plus an abandoned concession stand....

Reply to Can the Southeast get a National Soon? 11/8/2016 8:16 AM

The "National" Championship on a map looks like a Northeast regional other than 3 West coast races. It is a private club, and our opinion means nothing to them. Start you own club if you want something different. Johnny, an AMA Motocross National has ... more »
