BLACK & WHITE: ARE THE WOMEN READY FOR PRIME TIME? ARE THERE BETTER OPTIONS

There have been Women's National Motocross Championships in the United States since 1974. That makes women's racing just as old as the AMA 125 National and AMA Supercross series. But, unlike the AMA series, women's racing has had numerous sanctioning bodies.

MX Sports said, ...

After two weekends off, we talked to Chad to get a status report, and see if he is healthy and ready to try and reclaim that red number plate. ...
