2018 Motocross of Nations TV Schedule and Team Guide

After a dismal ninth place finish in last year’s Motocross of Nations, the United States is looking to return to the top of the podium on home soil at RedBud MX, a track on the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross National circuit. Riding under the America flag are Eli Tomac (Monster Energy Kawasaki KX450), Aaron Plessinger (Monster Energy Factory Yamaha YZ250F) and Justin Barcia (Monster Energy Factory Yamaha YZ450F).

Tomac is the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross National Champion in the 450 class and Plessinger the 250 class champion. Barcia finished fourth in the 450 class standings, and second American (behind Frenchman Marvin Musquin and Germany’s Ken Roczen). Plessinger won both 250 motos at RedBud in 2018, while Tomac struggled after qualifying second. Barcia went 4-2 and finished 3rd at the 2018 RedBud National.
