HONDAAs of this week and weeks past, you can show up to any local track in Southern California to find most of the AMA’s top pros in preparation for the upcoming AMA National outdoor series — which is only 3 weeks away. Yesterday, we rolled into SoCal’s Pala Raceway in San Diego County to do some testing of our own, but little did we know it would be a complete stopwatch national for the pro’s, as well as some of the top amateur athletes. Here’s who we saw.
