There is just something about David Bailey calling a motocross race that makes the world a better place. The ICON was on hand for the season opener at Glen Helen along with the silky voice of Jason Weigandt to host the live web cast and Racer X Motocross Show on Motocross.com. DB will break down all the action in both classes for us tonight.
We all knew the AMA Motocross Lites class was going to be a great battle all year long and the boys did not disappoint. It took a slide rule, calculator, and Weege’s rental car GPS to figure out how the overall points were shaking down during the final moto. When the dust and sand settled Monster Energy Pro Circuit’s Austin Stroupe stood atop the box without a moto win, but still well earned. Stroupe-A-Loop made sure his name was included in the championship talk for the rest of the year and his speed and aggressiveness assured it will.
Torco Racing Fuel’s Jake “The Snake” Weimer had some great races during the supercross season, but untimely crashes and injuries kept him from a consistent season. The resilient Idahoan put in a solid ride at Glen Helen and will join us with his razor-sharp wit which we just call being a smart ass in Georgia.
The Disney Movie moment definitely went to privateer extrordinare Sean Hamblin and his impressive effort and top-ten overall. The popular former Factory star is back from his abbreviated career in Europe we are stoked to see him back on top of his game. There is a grass root’s effort to get him on a ride this season and we hope to see that by Hangtown.
Randy Lawrence has been in this business since 1989 and wrenched for some great riders such as McGrath, Dubach, and David Pingree. His wealth of motocross knowledge and bicycle racing experience makes him a uniquely qualified trainer for Nick Wey and Ryan Villopoto. RL is one of the coolest guys in the pits and we always enjoy having him on the show for a little behind the scenes look at the sport away from the track.
The 2008 AMA Toyota Motocross Championship heads to Wortham, Texas and the Freestone County Raceway in just two short weeks.
