2019 Fox Raceway Motocross | Kickstart



The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship would not be complete without a round in Southern California. We enjoy our travels to the other tracks and states that fill out the schedule, but there’s something about being around all of our friends in the industry, watching the riders rip laps, and then sleeping in our own beds that is hard to beat. A few months back we heard that issues between the series organizer and the original track that put the SoCal round at risk. While some wondered if the series would go to new venue elsewhere in the country, Fox Raceway stepped up, secured the date, and worked to get the facility ready in time for thousands of fans.

We know that opinions are mixed when it comes to Fox Raceway, but the track and MX Sports deserves some praise for their efforts. The track was wide and racy, the property had something for everyone, and traffic wasn’t as bad as the past two visits (2010 & 2011). 

Want to know what we saw at round two? Swap, Chase, and Anton put in a team effort for this weekend’s installment of Kickstart and there’s a lot to look at, so start scrolling.

    Kickstart was always my favorite part of transworld and when it went under I was sad to see it go. I’m glad it’s back. I appreciate the awesome bits of information that I can see here that I wouldn’t have known otherwise, especially if i didn’t get to go to a race.
    Thanks for the content.

    Loved Barcia’s gear! I think moto should collaborate with other brands as much as they can. Big Fox fan, but props to Alpinestars.

    Good race review, like the complete coverage of many rider’s results, great pictures as well. The new site is good. It has a great responsive design that works well on iOS and on FireFox desktop as well. Looked through the code a bit, looks like a pretty clean WordPress implementation, no warnings/errors which is nice. Good work!

    I always loved kickstart. I like to see the behind the scenes stuff, what the riders are doing, what is new on there bikes, are they riding hurt or what. I wanna see videos of you just shooting the shit with the riders and mechanics, not so much an interview. Either way you guys are the best at what you do and i will always rely on you for my dirt bike news.
    P.S. I would CHERISH that HELMET.

    I love kickstart obviously. I like all the inside info that you get for us about the bikes, the riders, the teams, whos hurt, whos not, i like knowing all that stuff and you seem to be the best at getting that for me. I would like to see you just sitting down and shooting the shit with the riders and the rest of the team. I know you must be friends with 75% of the pits. I love the podcasts too but i would love less formal.
    P.S. I would CHERISH that HELMET.
