McThoughts | Arlington Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Arlington Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 450 Class We had some good racing, once again Saturday night. Unfortunately, we lost Ken Roczen the previous week, and Justin Barcia and Josh Grant this week to injuries. That really shakes up the points when you lose #2 and #3, but it is the perfect chance for some fresh faces to step up. Going into

McThoughts | Arlington Supercross | 250 Class

McThoughts | Arlington Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 250 Class Saturday night was round 1 for the 250 East Coast riders. It was very clear that they were chomping at the bit to get going after watching their West Coast counterparts for 6 weeks straight. Everybody was fired up, and the action was pretty intense. One issue I had was the amount of attempted

McThoughts | 250 East Supercross Preview By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 250 East This year’s 250 East class is looking pretty strong on paper. We have a defending champion, a few vets, and a bunch of guys ready to take the next step. There are 5 guys who have won main events (yes, I’m including Blake Wharton), and there are quite a few that have a very good

McThoughts | San Diego Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | San Diego Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 450 class The 450 class has been full of injuries so far this season. We have had stars like Eli Tomac, Marvin Musquin, Jake Weimer, and Justin Bogle pull off or miss action due to injuries. Well, it just got a little bit worse. We lost Weimer and Bogle once again to injury, and most

McThoughts | San Diego Supercross | 250 Class

McThoughts | San Diego Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 250 Class This past weekend in San Diego we had a slower, jumpier track. It was technical and it had different options, and it made for good racing. The top guys were, once again, near the front for the most part and the title chase got a little bit tighter with points leader Aaron Plessinger

McThoughts | Oakland Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Oakland Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 450 Class A very tacky and technical track almost ended the championship hopes for our points leader, Jason Anderson, early on in the day when he went over the bars very hard. Surprisingly, Anderson bounced back and claimed yet another victory in Oakland. As I mentioned, the track was very soft, and the transitions and even

McThoughts | Oakland Supercross | 250 West

McThoughts | Oakland Supercross | 250 West By Jeff McConkey Photos by Billy Rainford 250 Class We had some very good racing in the 250 class on Saturday night. The track was very technical due to the soft rutted conditions, and made some of these top level riders look like beginners. For the most part, we had the top guys up front and battling, which kept it exciting. Shane McElrath

McThoughts | Glendale Supercross | 450 Class

McThoughts | Glendale Supercross | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey 450 Class We are 4 rounds into the 2018 season and we have had a bunch of surprises, a few injuries, and some pretty decent racing. Our top 3 preseason favourites have both gone down with injuries and they have both bounced back. Jason Anderson is our points leader and he looks to be stronger and more ready than ever.

McThoughts | Glendale Supercross | 250 Class

McThoughts | Glendale Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey 250 Class   Like I have been saying all season, the 250 West Class is stacked and you can’t take a night off. The top group of racers in this class are all so close in speed, you need to get the start every weekend to put yourself in contention. Little mistakes cost you big, and you just can’t afford

McThoughts | Anaheim 2 | 450 Class

McThoughts | Anaheim 2 | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey The big news was that both pre-season championship favourites Marvin Musquin and Eli Tomac were going to be back in action. The 450 class is stacked in 2018, without those two, but it definitely adds with them in the line up. Jason Anderson is in control, and looking like a serious title threat. He has the speed, the fitness and
