In an effort to showcase to tightly-contested 450 National Motocross title fight between Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto and Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey, a format change has been instituted for the Traxxas PalaMotocross National that will see the 250cc motos run first, followed by the 450cc title showdown.
Fuel TV and Speed have made the format switch to give the premier class the spotlight, airing the motos live, in that order, on their respective broadcasts. If you get Fuel TV (it’s the skateboard channel that your kids watch), you can see the first motos starting at 1:00 p.m. (Pacific time). They will be live from the track. However, to see the second motos you have to switch networks.
After the opening motos from Pala, Speed TV will bring exclusive final-moto coverage of each class to the masses. Live coverage of the final 250 AMA National moto of the season will air at 4 p.m. (Pacific), followed immediately by the culmination of Villopoto and Dungey’s championship battle in the 450 AMA National Motocross Championshiplass at 5 p.m. (Pacific).
After that, you will have to be content with NASCAR and the NFL.
