2022 SOUTHWICK NATIONAL PRE-RACE REPORT: TV SCHEDULE, INJURED LIST & MORE

We’re half way through the 2022 Pro Motocross season and the battles are still ongoing in both classes. In the 450s, Chase Sexton is still in command of the red plate with the points lead but Eli Tomac inches his way closer with his moto wins. In the 250 class, it’s still the Lawrence brother show but now Jett has forfeited his red plate to his brother Hunter after Jett’s engine failure and Jo Shimoda’s victory. Now the series heads to Southwick and we can’t wait to see what goes down when the gate drops.
