Not really. Lamay, Bisceglia, Cunningham, Oklahoma Mulisha are usually good bets. There's usually a pretty good preview of fresh faces there, too. Wilson, Anderson, Bloss, Bogle, JMart, Zach, Regal raced it before they made the show.

I will never understand privateers that drive 10 thousand miles to chase a few bucks on the national level. But will pass up 2 wknds in Texas and could make well over 5k.

I remember local Pro's hitting races every weekend to make cash. I think that went away as the "Train all year for 4 races" amateurs turned pro. Kinda sad if you ask me. That is why I let my son race every weekend we can.

What classes are you running? I'll be in the 50+ and 55+ during the days, not sure if I'll race Saturday night!

Gawd!! Swan Mx looks so damn incredible!! One of my dream tracks to ride before I die.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

The only way to get to ride the whole track with the pro section is to sign up for the Future Pro class. You know you could school all those kids who think their SOOOO fast.
