Many greats have ridden for Team USA at the Motocross of Nations, but Jeff Stanton's name goes a little higher in the ranks than most. For three years (1989-1991), Stanton did hero work for the team, including two years where he single-handedly kept the American win streak alive with dramatic last-minute charges.
Now he's contributing to this year's RedBud edition of the MXoN in a new way by organizing a fundraising dinner the Friday before the race where the fans get to dine with their heroes. Stanton has grabbed nearly every rider to ever compete for Team USA, and bids are up for fans to pick a table and dine with their heroes.
In this edition of the Racer X Exhaust podcast, we talk to the six-time AMA National Champion about the event and get his take on RedBud and the MXoN in general, as well as current-day racers like Eli Tomac, Justin Barcia, and Jeffrey Herlings. Stanton is never one to hold back his thoughts, so you'll enjoy this one. Go to www.mxonexperience2018.com for info.
