Flying High at Hangtown!

The 49th annual Hangtown Motocross classic went down last weekend under scorching conditions in the hill country outside Sacramento, California. Established in 1968, the legendary race served as the opening round of the 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing.

Most people think of stadium events when they hear the word motocross, but the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross championship is the nation’s premier series for outdoor, big-course summertime motocross. The 2017 schedule traverses the country with twelve wide-open races.

We had a photographer representing Fuel Curve on the premises! In the next week or so, we will bring you a Fuel Curve-style look at all the action as we saw it. Stay tuned.

Drummond got his start in motorsports reporting by making a fake press pass to gain starting line access. The ruse worked and he began covering auto races as far back as 1986 in Northern California, eventually getting his stories published worldwide. He has owned and driven everything from a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere to a ridiculously modded Subaru WRX as well as a string of Mercedes AMG’s, most of which had the warranties voided the day after leaving the dealership.
