It’s going to be down to the wire going into the final round of the 2022 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross National Championship Series, as Chase Sexton and Eli Tomac swapped wins and P2 finishes at Ironman Raceway, leaving them separated by a point with two Motos remaining. Tomac leads by a single point going into Pala II next week.Sexton looked like he might regain the series lead after the first Moto, taking the lead from Tomac on lap 13 (of 17) after working his way to the front after a P10 first lap. However, two laps later, Tomac stormed back with an epic charge, putting him in full control of the Moto 1 proceedings, with Sexton unable to find an answer for Tomac’s surge.
As he did in the first Moto, Ken Roczen took the lead early. However, this time, Sexton grabbed the spot in short order, leading the final 16 of 17 laps. Tomac started in P3, and passed Roczen for P2 on lap 5. Tomac mounted an attack on Sexton late in the race. However, after cross-rutting and nearly crashing, Tomac backed off and cruised to the finish in P2, over 11 seconds behind Sexton.Local favorite Aaron Plessinger grabbed the final spot on the podium with a pair of P3 rides. Jason Anderson and Christian Craig rounded out the overall Top 5.Tomac takes the 2022 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross National Championship Series at Pala II with a win and P2 finishes. Anything less than that leaves the door open for Sexton. If Sexton wins the first moto, Moto 2 will be winner takes all.Check our 2022 Pro Motocross TV Schedule so you don’t miss this epic showdown at Pala II.Exclusive photography by Tyler Caisse 2022 Ironman Motocross National Results, Ironman Raceway, Crawfordsville, IN

Suzuki V-Strom 1050 DE + Scott Casey – Living with PTSD and the Rolling Barrage
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
The new Suzuki V-Strom DE has just been announced, and Avery Innis, Training and Publications Manager from Suzuki Motor USA, is just the expert to explain its nuances to us. The V-Strom has always been a superb, yet inexpensive platform, and the new DE variant gets more serious about ADV riding. I find out from Avery whether the new upgrades are worthwhile; and the place that the new V-Strom has in the current market.
Our second segment covers a subject that’s a little more serious than usual.
Many veterans and first responders suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, aka PTSD.
Scott Casey—himself a sufferer—decided to try and help his fellow vets, and started a cross-Canada charity ride in 2016 called the ‘Rolling Barrage’. It was—and is—incredibly successful.
It’s not just a tremendous ride. The Rolling Barrage is a place for like-minded sufferers and their supporters to ride together. They get some serious “wind therapy” whether it’s on just a stop, or a leg of the ride, one day, a weekend, or even the whole ride. Scott opens up with Associate Editor Teejay Adams about his personal history, and how he came to create such a brilliant and worthy real-world event that truly helps.
The Rolling Barrage is a supportive network of brothers and sisters. To quote Scott Casey: “this is the family you never knew you had”.
It was a Nation exploding into civil war. In 1992, the collapse of the former Yugoslavia triggered an international armed conflict that would last more than 3 years and eventually see nearly 100,000 people killed. Canadians were thrown into what was declared a peacekeeping mission, but it wasn’t. They were going well beyond the rules of engagement that were provided by the UN. Told by Scott Casey, Former Canadian Peacekeeper.
