Like AC on his KX450, I was making my Sin City debut during the 2019 Monster Energy Cup. We were both neon rookies—Adam quite literally in his bright throwback gear—but we all know how his weekend went. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at how it all played out.
“Don’t be afraid to ask questions,” my dad says as he drops me off at Pittsburgh International Airport for my first solo flight ever. Once I’ve successfully cleared security and boarded the plane, I figure I’ll take his advice, get out of my comfort zone, and talk to my seatmate. She fails to even acknowledge my presence, so I decide to enjoy the clouds outside. I make my connection in Newark, and soon enough I’m on the ground in Las Vegas. I call up my ride, our West Coast digital sales associate, Trent Lopez.
