Announcing Special Pro Ride Day at Lake Elsinore on May 11

May 2, 2012 10:40am

MX Sports and Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, along with Racer X Illustrated, would like to invite all riders who hold an AMA Supercross or AMA Pro Racing license and are participating in the 2012 Nationals to a complimentary pro practice at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park on Friday, May 11, 2012. The main Lake Elsinore track will be available exclusively to participating pro racers and their teams/pit crews, in order to test outdoor equipment and also get a feel for the new Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park. (The Lake Elsinore vet track will remain open to the public.)

Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park will host the final round of the 2012 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, on September 8. It is the hope of MX Sports, as well as the Lake Elsinore management and track architect Marc Peters of Petersbuilt Tracks, that this preview will help us configure any soil preparation, maintenance, and layout changes that may be needed for the inaugural Lake Elsinore Motocross National. We also hope the test will help the athletes and teams prepare for the entire series.

The pro practice will follow an exclusive Racer X Advertisers' Ride Day that will take place from 9 a.m. until noon, with some track-prep time in between. Admission and registration are free to all professional riders and their race crews, compliments of Lake Elsinore, MX Sports, and Racer X Illustrated. We hope you will join us for this special afternoon and take advantage of the unique opportunity to test your equipment on a national racetrack before the start of the series.

If you have any questions about the Lake Elsinore Pro Ride Day on Friday, May 11, 2012, please contact Jeff Canfield (

See you there!
