From Racer X...

It’s not common for this sport to receive coverage in mainstream media outlets, especially ones that cover the financial industry, but there’s an article on the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship today featured on Forbes.com.

The story focuses on the 2019 success of the series, citing, “For the 2019 season, average viewership on NBCSN was up 11% vs. last season while viewership for the races that air on NBC have remained flat, even though races broadcast on television are often on tape delay. In total, the Series saw nearly 4 million viewers across NBC, NBCSN, and the NBC Sports Gold streaming app.”

MX Sports Pro Racing, promoter of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship, is a sister company to Racer X.

The story also focuses on future goals for the championship, including finding more live television air dates (instead of tape delayed events on NBCSN) and more outside-the-industry sponsorship. In the case of both fans and the industry, better airdates and more sponsorship money are goals anyone can get behind. Perhaps getting a little mainstream love here can help move things in that direction.

Interesting. How could it be so successful when so many people are complaining about the Gold App on here?!! 🤔

It was well-written, but it's worth pointing out that forbes.com is an open website that allows submissions from pretty much anybody. It was still cool to read and the guy is obviously a legit journalist.

Nice work DC! Good article, hopefully it catches the eyes of some new money.

So 20,000 fans at Washougal, is that about average or on the higher end for a national? Seems pretty good.

Thunder Valley is in the 18-20k range. But Denver SX was closer to 50-55k

I like this part..... " In supercross, it’s in a zoo confined to a cage, all its power and speed confined. Motocross, with its larger tracks and open spaces, sees the racing machines at their full capacity. They are free to chase their prey at maximum velocity...."

Good article. DC, MxSports and the respective tracks should be congratulated.

I'm goin' off the rails on a crazy train

Hell yes. I hope the outdoors continues to gain strength. SX could go away and I wouldn't lose any sleep over it but if we were to somehow lose the Nationals I would be very upset by it. We have a really good series on some damn good tracks and the competition seems to be getting deeper the last couple of years. The TV production seems like it could improve at times but the content is so compelling the gaffes they make can be overlooked. I'm not sure about the point of saying that SX took hold in the 80's. To me that overlooks almost decade of SX. This is great news and thank goodness that NBC has decided to become the "motorsports" network and can piggyback our sport with the other motorsports.

I'm an ex-wildlife biologist. Fish are wildlife and I've been snorkeling in the ocean.

Plus I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express once.

So, yes. I am.

Are you impressed? You are, aren't you?!
