McThoughts | A2 – 450 Class | Strikt

McThoughts | A2 – 450 Class | Strikt By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford What a great 450 season so far. I am not a fan of the runaway races and guys winning over and over again. This season there are so many guys that can win, should win, and it really is a good time to be a fan. We have guys that can be fighting for a

McThoughts | A2 – 250 Class | Strikt By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford This year’s 250 West class is kind of predictable. We know Colt Nichols will be fast and consistent.

Monday Morning Coffee | Strikt

By Billy Rainford Good Monday Morning and welcome to my final Monday in the warmth of California. The plan is to stay in shorts weather for as long as I can before making my way up and right to Aspen, Colorado, for the Winter X Games this coming weekend. No point getting there early! It’s been a great time out here on the California Coast, but like almost everything does,

Brainstorm | What Happened at A2 | Strikt

Brainstorm | What Happened at A2 By Billy Rainford With all the rain the Los Angeles area received this past week, it’s lucky we were even able to hold round 3 at all! Traveling from Ontario to spend 4 weeks in Southern California, I didn’t bring anything that would be useful in rain. Fortunately, the Dirt Wurx guys did a great job getting the track built and covered before the
