Faces at the Races|Regina National Round 4 By Billy Rainford “You’ll have to forgive my tardiness, I had to kill a man…” If you can tell me where that quote is from, you get a free sticker.

Faces at the Races – Detroit SX By Billy Rainford Photos by Jeff McConkey and Billy Rainford It’s time for a long look at the people who were at Ford Field this past weekend for round 11/4 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series.

After being off the schedule in 2015, 50 605 fans filed into the Rogers Centre to prove that Toronto deserves a round each and every year.
