Photos from the opening round of the AMA National MX Series

Published May 19th, 2007





Sacramento is the opening round of the AMA National Motocross Series. Actually the track is located outside of town in Rancho Cordova. The race track is part of a California State Off-Highway Vehicle area, and put on by the Dirt Diggers. Traditionally, the event is known as Hangtown.



It was warm and sunny (mid 80s). Tomorrow for race day it’s expected to be even warmer (close to 90 degrees). The Dirt Diggers do an excellent job with preparing the track all weekend long.



All the normal top riders looked good. Brett Metcalfe and Nick Wey have both returned to racing. The Alessi brothers have both switched to the 450 class. There is no Chad Reed, Broc Hepler, or Ivan Tedesco racing. Oh yeah …. Ricky Carmichael is racing this weekend too! Ryan Villipoto is riding with the red number 1 plate in defense of his Lites outdoor championship in 2006. Everyone is expecting a Stewart/Carmichael battle tomorrow in the 450 class. Results will be online right after the racing is completed.
