by Dawn McClintock
Swinging things back into Atlanta and we were back to the Triple Crown format again. This meant a tough go for the privateers who got shaved off earlier in the day but our photographers were out in full force all day catching a few of them in action. Let’s take a look at some of the FXR athletes who lined up at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.

Jerry Robin finished 15th in the LCQ.
