Practice Report: Unadilla 2012

The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship has come to the historic Unadilla Motorsports facility for round ten of the 2012 season. Rain earlier in the week has brought cool temperatures to central New York, but has also created a rough and rutted track. Practice has just concluded, with Marvin Musquin and Josh Grant posting the fastest laps in their respective classes. Racing is live today on Fuel TV, NBC, and NBC Sports.
