AMA Outdoor Motocross Series, Round 4 – Mechanicsville, Maryland
The AMA Lucas Oil Motocross made stop number four this past weekend at Budd’s Creek MX in Mechanicsville, Maryland and it was a great weekend of racing for Fly Racing. The weather and track conditions were near perfect and Fly Racing riders had a great weekend of finishes. The highlight of the weekend though had to be Fly team rider Andrew Short’s stunning first moto victory. Shorty pulled the holeshot and checked out for his first moto win of the year!
