Faces at the Races|2016 Red Bud National Photos and Captions by Jeff McConkey Red Bud is a bucket list item. If you’ve never been, plain and simple, you need to go. You can see great racing at each and every round of the AMA Nationals, but Red Bud is more. To start off, it’s the most beautiful track layout you could imagine.
