Each yeah at Loretta Lynn’s, Jason Weigandt hosts a Kawasaki and Thor/Parts Unlimited panel session with pro riders taking questions from amateur riders and parents. This year’s panel featured Jeremy McGrath, Adam Cianciarulo and Garrett Marchbanks—three riders representing three generations and three different ways to enter the sport.
McGrath’s plan was totally unique, as he didn’t even become a motocross racer until age 14, and he famously likes to explain how badly he rode at Loretta Lynn’s. Cianciarulo has 11 titles at the Ranch, tied for the most ever in the youth divisions, but did his riding and training in his native Florida. Recent graduate Marchbanks has several titles of his own but sacrificed much to do it, leaving home at age eight to live at tracks and facilities and hone his craft.
The three discuss their different paths into racing while taking questions from Weigandt and a collection of fans at the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch, presented by Lucas Oil.
