With round 1 of the 2018 Outdoor National season under the top 250 and 450 riders belts, it was clear that some needed work, and others needed to hone their skills for the remainder of the series. Luckily, thats what the SoCal “stopwatch nationals” are for. Every top name you can think of flooded the gates of Pala Raceway on Tuesday May 23rd in preparation for the upcoming 2018 Glen Helen National this weekend in San Bernardino.
