SX Lites Report
After unseasonably cold weather and even snow in Dallas, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki is looking forward to the warm temperatures of the sunshine state as the AMA Supercross Lites series heads to Jacksonville.
Christophe Pourcel is looking to get back on the top of the box after a two-week hiatus. The French rider held on to the points lead following the Dallas race despite a seventh place finish after most of the field went down in a first turn pileup.

"My goal is still winning the championship," said Pourcel. "Last weekend was tough, but getting as many points as possible is the way to win the title. I want to get back to winning and Jacksonville is a good place to start."
Pourcel’s teammate Dean Wilson is hoping he can get back to racing after missing last weekend’s event in Dallas. Wilson is working closely with US immigration officials to make sure he can continue to race every weekend.

"It was disappointing to miss Dallas," said Wilson. "I think everyone knows that I want to race, but I need to make sure everything is in place before I can cross the border."
Tyla Rattray is still recovering from a shoulder injury and is hoping to be back to racing in two weeks. SPEED will broadcast the race form Jacksonville on Sunday, March 28.
