The legendary Glen Helen track.
The 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series comes to Glen Helen Raceway this weekend. Although the race wasn’t today, press day was. This means the riders from the 250 and 450 class get to ride the track and get a first look before tomorrow’s motos. Below is what Spencer Owens saw through the lens.
