As the season draws to a close, the demand for coverage of the 2009 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship has reached a pinnacle and SPEED has responded, presenting three hours of exclusive coverage this Saturday, August 29.
Beginning at 8 p.m. ET, the super competitive 250 Class race from Budds Creek will kick-off an evening of the world’s premier motocross racing. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Christophe Pourcel and Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey are in the midst of a major battle for the series championship, but a determined Jake Weimer had plans of his own.
Immediately following the Budds Creek 250 race at 9 p.m. ET, SPEED will present the first of two same-day coverage broadcasts from Saturday’s Moto-X 338 Motocross National in Southwick, Mass. The 250 Class and its aforementioned title fight take center stage for the first time in 2009.
At 10 p.m. ET, newly-crowned 450 Class Champion Chad Reed looks for his sixth overall victory of the season and a continued dominance of the premier class aboard his Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki. However, Honda Red Bull Racing teammates Andrew Short and Ivan Tedesco are in the midst of a tight battle for the runner-up position in the standings and know a win would help solidify their efforts. Throw in Southwick legend John Dowd as a special guest competitor and the stage is set for a possible upset victory.
