“The 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship visited Blountville, Tennessee, this past weekend for round five at Muddy Creek Raceway. This race track has been around forever, and most of the pros have spun laps here when they were younger thanks to a strong local series. Cooper Webb, Zach Osborne, and Shane McElrath all call Muddy Creek their hometown track growing up not too far away. It’s definitely the toughest track to shoot at on the circuit, which makes it my least favorite. With the closest international airport being three hours away in Charlotte, it’s tough to travel to this race as well unless you cough up the extra dough to fly into the small Tri-Cities Airport that’s pretty close to the track. They have added a lot of sand to the race course to help with the dirt, but with a ton of races being run on this course for many years the top soil has been pushed out, and it definitely isn’t what it was back in the day. The first Tennessee National three years ago had so many people there the entire infield was full, but this year the attendance has fallen off quite a bit unfortunately. The racing in the 250 class was some of the best all season with Shane McElrath getting the holeshot in moto two and leading every lap until the last when Cooper Webb came out of nowhere to take the moto win and overall. Cole Seely made it interesting in the first moto with a holeshot and sprinted out to a quick lead, but Ken Roczen would eventually get by him for the win. Eli Tomac fought hard in the second moto to make a pass on the Suzuki rider but couldn’t make it stick, and Roczen came away with another 1-1 performance. This weeekend we are off to the majestic RedBud MX in Michigan, another one of my favorite places to shoot at. See you at the races!” —TWMX photographer Ryne Swanberg
