The opening round of the Red Bull/Lucas Oil AMA Pro outdoor nationals is fast approaching! Next Saturday, to be exact! Glen Helen’s (and MX Sports’s) crews have been working hard to prepare the facility for this epic event! The MotoPhoto LLC crew is in the process of obtaining photo credentials, so we will be on hand to procure images of the event! We attended the RacerX Pro Practice Day on Friday, and want to post up a few shots for your perusal.
Many of the top AMA pros were in attendance, spinning laps on the awesome Glen Helen National Track. Just about all the contenders were there (except James Stewart, who, word has it, was testing at Zaca Station).
Dean Wilson will be on his ProCircuit 250. He looked very strong, turning some of the fastest laps of the day. Others who looked very quick were Josh Grant (who rode early and then left early), Ryan Dungey, Kenny Roczen, as well as the Troy Lee team. Weston Peick was also turning laps on his new outdoor ride (also from RCH).
Jason Anderson was also one of the fastest riders on this day. It looks like a possible great battle between Dean Wilson and Jason may be looming. Pourcel may possibly joint that duo as well!
Team Honda was in attendance, with both Trey and Justin turning fast laps. Both looked aggressive and focused!
The Red Bull KTM team brought Ryan Dungey, Marvin, and Kenny. All three looked very comfortable and very fast! This national is shaping up to be a must-see event! The best way will be to get some tickets and enjoy the live ambiance, and then get a repeat at home with your DVR!
