Welcome to the Race Day Feed, coming to you from RedBud. We’ll be posting updates right here on Racer X Online all day, so be sure to check back often. Posts are in chronological order, so scroll to the bottom for the latest info.
Welcome to RedBud and the 2018 Motocross of Nations. For just the fourth time in history, the biggest motocross event in the world takes place on U.S. soil.
After overnight rain, it looks like we may escape the heavy stuff today. May being the key word. As of this morning there is a 50 percent chance or more rain throughout the day. The track should be okay, though, as the team at RedBud were more than prepared for the weather. The track was rolled and sealed before the rains arrived.
This morning was the drawing for gate positions for qualifying and Team USA had luck on their side as they drew the second pick behind Guatemala. Australia was third, followed by Iceland, Brazi, and Ukraine. You can view full results here.
