It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to hit up a supercross race and with Detroit only a couple of hours from my front door I figured it might be a good time to make the trip and I’m sure glad I did. It was a full day of racing action and a good chance to get a good old whiff of race gas. (I guess the Ford Field employees were less fans of race gas though. Several uniformed workers were walking around with surgical masks and it looked like there was another SARS outbreak about to happen.) Round eight was another scheduled Triple Crown format race which for the spectator meant we had more races to watch but it always shaves the privateers out early on. It also meant we didn’t get to see the KTM Junior race in Detroit. I’m personally not a fan of the Triple Crown format. We had a Marshal Weltin get a guest spot on Race Day Live and a bit more screen time for AJ Catanzaro when he took the win in the LCQ. Let’s take a look at what shook down in Motown this past weekend.
