Last summer was a breakout season of sorts for New England’s own Jason Brooks. In the 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Brooks finished within the top twenty overall at several rounds and earned enough points for national number 81 this year.

As Brooks was gearing up to get his SX endorsement through AMSOIL Arenacross this season he ran into a major problem—his truck broke down. He had two options: he could either buy a new bike or buy another truck. Of course, one is a necessity for getting around everyday, while the other is just a privilege.

(He went with the truck in case you were wondering.)

Now Brooks, who is just 24-years-old, has enough support to make it to all of the nationals this summer as part of 3D Racing with team owner Bill Dill and teammate Justin Rando. We caught up with Brooks on Monday to see how preparations are coming for this weekend’s opener.
