ATV National Motocross Championships Under Way February 4-5
ATVA National Motocross Championships action gets started February 4-5 at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California, with Tim Farr hoping to repeat last year's win. But defending national champ John Natalie will be riding with confidence. And Team Suzuki/Yoshimura's duo of Doug Gust and Jeremiah Jones will be racing the new Suzuki LT-R 450 for the first time.
Hang on to your handlebars, this is just the start of the season! The track this year will be even more fun than last year. Promoter Lori Bryant says there will be some changes to the track geared just for ATVs.
Practice is set for Friday, February 3, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. On Saturday, a ATV riders meeting is set for 7:30 a.m., with racing action to immediately follow practice. New this year, Pro-Am Production will race all ATV motos on Saturday. Sunday’s schedule will start out the same as Saturday. The big show will start at noon and 3 p.m. when the top ATV MX riders from all across the nation put it all on the line and launch off the starting gate. Pro-Am Unlimited will race both motos on Sunday.
Suzuki picked the Glen Helen track and the days just prior to the Glen Helen race for their World Press introduction of the all-new, race-ready LT-R450. Press from around the world will be on hand to be the first to ride the R450. Suzuki will also allow several editors and selected people to actually enter and race the new R450s at the National race. Plus, Suzuki hopes to announce a dealer open house and Pro autograph session soon. So stay tuned to www.ATVAonline.com for details.
