The first round of the 2020 Pro Motocross Championship is finally here, three months before the first round in Hangtown was supposed to kick off. Racing at the Loretta Lynn track in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee is a first for the Pro Motocross series. This Friday was supposed to be Press Day with the riders getting in some track time, however, the weather put a stop to that. Riders were ready to hit the track, but the rain rolled in and they had to call it a day. MXA‘s newest photog, Trevor Nelson grabbed some shots of what was going on the Friday before the race.
