McThoughts | Atlanta SX | 450 Class

McThoughts | Atlanta SX | 450 Class By Jeff McConkey The last ever Supercross race in the Georgia Dome was pretty decent. It wasn’t a great battle for the lead, but Eli Tomac‘s ride had many thinking he would catch the leader. There was also some good racing all through the pack. The sand section made things interesting, and actually seemed to be sticking to everything. Ryan Dungey heads North

McThoughts | Atlanta Supercross | 250 Class

McThoughts | Atlanta Supercross | 250 Class By Jeff McConkey Round 2 of the East Coast 250 went off in the Georgia Dome. Usually, the red Georgia clay ruts up quite a bit more, but I think due to the Arenacross race Friday night, the dirt was packed down like a West Coast track.

McThoughts: 450 Supercross – Atlanta By Jeff McConkey On Saturday night, the action headed East. East to Atlanta, Georgia. The traditional red clay rutted up and made a not-so-tricky track technical.  The crew added a sand section that was difficult to navigate for all. There’s something about heading East that spruces certain riders up. The 450 main event had solid action throughout the pack and was fun to watch. Marvin

McThoughts: 250 East Round 1 – Atlanta

McThoughts: 250 East Round 1 – Atlanta By Jeff McConkey Round 1 of the 2016 250 East Coast SX series went off on Saturday night in Atlanta, Georgia. The track looked good, but I was honestly expecting bigger whoops. I feel the East may be a little bit more stacked this season compared to the West.
