I had the privilege of attending the 40th annual Hangtown Motocross Classic recently. This was the best Hangtown event I can remember. The weather was awesome and the racing was even better. Some of the other photographers and I had our picks for the first set of motos. I would like to brag that I went 3 for 3 picking Dungey Wilson, and Patterson. We didn’t pick for the second motos or the overall, but suffice it to say, I would not have had such great picks in the 2nd moto or the overall.
I dont think many people picked Chad for the overall, and even less people would have thought he was going to outlast and pull away from Dungey. Baggett has always been fast, but he was on unstoppable this weekend and was under most peoples radar.
Who is taking it this weekend at Freestone? Is the Number 2, going to light it up, or will Dungey outwork everyone? Can Chad Reed get another win? In the 250 class, I am hoping Stewart can last a little bit longer. I was pumped to see him out in front for a while.
Enjoy some of my images from the 40th running of the Hangtown Motocross Classic
