1. The Supercross schedule should be released tomorrow. 2 new venues and the return of a regular one.

2. Red Bud is expecting a massive crowd for the MXoN. They are making changes to the venue to accommodate it.

3. The start will not be the same as it was this weekend. It will be moved to where the pits are currently and will be a straight start into the second turn that is currently there. Then the mechanics and VIP pavilion will be built alongside that.

4. The MXoN team will be announced at Unadilla in a few weeks, but I’m pretty sure we all know who is going to be on it. The AMA talked to several riders about it this weekend and all of them said they would be happy to be a part of it.

5. Puerto Rico might have a hell of a surprise rider on their team.

6. Two Arenacross series will most likely happen with a possible third as well. I don’t know if there is enough riders to support them all, but one of the series’ promoters was in the house at Red Bud and talking and trying to recruit riders and teams.

7. Hoosier tires are doing well and looking into different tread patterns and sizes.

8. The new Phoenix racing team recently acquired the old JGR test facility and is planning on going big in 2019. They also bought the Babbitts semi which was Reed’s Two-Two rig before that.

9. The Lake County Fair motocross in Chicago is making a comeback on July 25th and 26th and several privateer riders are committed to going. It's a 2 day event with a $5000 pro purse. Takes place a few days after Millville.

10. The lift gate on Cycle Trader Rock River Yamaha's semi broke off on Saturday and the rig is still in the pits and awaiting someone to fix the gate.

11. New Fly gear being released July 31 and new Fox gear being released Aug 1. Look for the Fly stuff to debut at Washougal.

Did marvelous Marvin say he’s got this title?

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.

If the US send AP, ET & JB, Puerto Rico sound send: AMart, Baggett & Anderson. That'll be a podium contender!

Dungey or RV coming back for a race could be surprising.

Why would they take stank dog. There's about 40 better options than him.

Puerto Rico...Travis Pastrana...

I'm surprised that Babbitt's sold the semi, I thought they would use it next season in GNCC, unless they aren't doing that anymore? Or just down-sizing when they do?

Always a good read. Thanks MX Culture

It was too low to get into some GNCC venues.

If it's only one previous venue, it's definitely Detroit. Have already received emails from Feld about it.

I saw the Nitro Arenacross promoter posting videos on his Facebook from Red Bud...his hometown is in Missouri, so maybe he is the one referenced in bullet point #6...?
