Josh GRantJosh Grant was looking very smooth.

These days, you can head to any local track in SoCal to find a plethora of pro’s in preparation for the 2018 AMA outdoor Nationals. On this particular Thursday we saw quite a few familiar faces, as well as some new ones. In fact, this coming Thursday, May 17, Glen Helen will clear the track from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon to allow only AMA Pro riders, who are entered in the Hangtown or Glen Helen National to get their first look at the complete Glen Helen National track. It will be a shakedown for the track and for the riders. So, if you want to see hot action come to Glen Helen to watch this Thursday. Here’s a teaser of what we saw last Thursday.
