A look down at the Atlanta Supercross pits.
The ninth round of the 2019 Supercross series is in Atlanta, Georgia. The track is located inside the Mercedes Benz Stadium where the the Falcons play. The weather on race day calls for temperature in the lows 60s, with some cloud cover.
This round is exciting as the East and West 250 riders match up with each other for the first time this year. These rounds are where the riders can gain or lose a lot of points in their division. We had our photog, Brian Converse takes a stroll through the Atlanta pits to see how things are shaping up. Enjoy.
