The final round of the Lucas Oils AMA Motocross Nationals is this weekend at Lake Elsinore Motocross Park in Southern California. We headed out to press day to get a glimpse of what we might see this weekend. Our heads were spinning when we showed up and the track was twice its normal size and the jumps were huge. This just got us even more amped for Saturday’s racing. Check out some of the photos we snapped while the riders headed out on track for the first time.
