Ironman MX National | Photo Report

August 29, 2017

The great outdoors has officially ground to a halt for 2017. The final round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships finished up at the Ironman track in Crawfordsville, IN this past weekend. A season of change for a few riders who moved up to a different class, we saw a shift for some from a support team to muscling it out on their own, others with motorhomes catching on fire and some changing bike brands mid-season. Every twist and turn from the series moulded riders into wanting more for next season and it should be interesting to see what deals are laid on the table come 2018. Let’s take a look at round 12 and the final checkers for the year.
