With the weekend off behind us and round four of the AMA Nationals approaching rapidly, the Pros are out and about at the practice tracks, striving to accomplish their goals this Saturday at the High Point National. While out at Fox Raceway testing bikes and products, our assistant editor, Josh Mosiman decided to fire up his camera and snag some pictures of the fast guys for our loyal viewers. While the main track was populated with many factory riders, there were also a few privateers and amateur riders that were holding their own against the big dogs. We included a few photos of them as well. Enjoy!

The track had most of the same layout left over from the Fox Raceway National. The hills were dry and hard pack as you can see, but most of the corners had good ruts in them.
Here’s an example, of one corner that had a nice loamy rut to it.
