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

Ah, we’re finally back to racing. In case you missed it, some pretty big news hit the motorcycle industry last week, something along the lines of the SuperUltraDeluxeMegaMotocross World American Ninja Warrior Championship. We’re kidding, it’s just the SuperMotocross World Championship, but we still can’t quite wrap our heads around what the acronym may be. SMWC, SXMxWC or SMX? Anyways, we’re excited for the future of the sport and hopefully it brings in more fans but before we get there, we gotta finish something you may have forgotten about due to a two-week break. Yep, we’re on the ninth round of the 2022 season, which means we’re almost 3/4s of the way done with this bad boy. Chase Sexton and Eli Tomac are still duking it out for the red plate while Jett Lawrence spins laps around the 250 field. Scroll down below to find out everything you need to know about the upcoming round at Unadilla.
