Correct me if I'm wrong but I saw something this morning about them allowing for starting blocks and possibly changing the starting gate set-ups that we currently use in Supercross. Maybe I am behind the curve and this is old news. I couldn't find it anywhere online other than social media and was wondering if you guys could shed some light on this subject.

Interesting maybe we will see faster starts a little bit more traction. Thanks for the heads up

I saw Jimmy D post that he was stoked about the metal grate and being able to use starting blocks now. I haven't seen or heard anything about that being allowed yet. Maybe we will find out soon?

Every rider is practicing from a grate right now. If the rule hasn't been announced publicly they have told the riders/teams.

The only AMA rule change that would make American Motocross Great Again would be the following announcement; "Effective immediately, the AMA severs all ties to the FIM organization...".

It's been officially announced. Same with 3 rounds (I can't remember which locations off the top of my head. MN is one) using the monster cup format.
