The 2018 AMA National Motocross Championship start this Saturday in Northern California. The Hangtown track has been on the circuit sicne the 1970s, but not that this location. It was originally in Placerville before moving to its current Rancho Cordova site. This year’s National Motocross Championship boils down to a battle between Eli Tomac, Marvin Musquin and Jason Anderson—who were the top three in the just-finished AMA Supercross Championship (with Anderson topping the charts).
Story lines that will pop up is the return of Ken Roczen, from the serious hand injury he suffered during the Supercross season. Even Ken doesn’t know how his hand will do and conversely how he will do, but he is game to try his best.
