Round 6 San Diego Supercross | Photo Report

February 13, 2018

by Dawn McClintock

That will wrap up this portion of the west coast Monster Energy AMA Supercross rounds and we will swing things to the east to Arlington, TX for round seven this coming weekend. This past weekend at PETCO Park in San Diego we saw way more carnage than we really needed to and I’m sure there are quite a few guys who are wishing they could have wiped that entire round from the books. This many injuries is more what I would have expected from the treacherous track the previous weekend at Oakland but not the case. The medic mule was out doing laps all day long in San Diego picking up passengers to take back to the Asterisk Medical Center. Here’s wishing a speedy recovery to all those out with injury. For some of our FXR athletes, San Diego had it’s highs and lows. Let’s take a look at some of the photos from this round.
