NJ at the Nationals – Glen Helen Edition
The second round of 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship comes to Southern California this weekend for the FMF Glen Helen National. As mentioned last week several NJ racers compete throughout the year on the national tour, but the early West Coast rounds are a bit light on actual New Jersey-based racers with that in mind, just like last week, we went searching for some type of Jersey connection for our preview.
Here are the riders and their NJ affiliation.
