One of the favourite tracks on the circuit has always been Southwick located in the state of Massachusetts. As a fan, there are plenty of vantage points to watch the race and for the racer its just plain fun…well unless the temperatures soar that is. We had one hot weekend at Southwick and with 84 entries alone in the 250 class we knew we were in for a showdown. There are a lot of fast New England riders that can be the wild card when it comes to qualifying here. For Canadian rider, Hayden Halstead, a member of the Royal Distributing/FXR/Yamaha Canada/MX101 team this was his first attempt at a national south of the border and he knew going in that he had his work cut out for him. Halstead did well and surpassed his expectations of himself here at Southwick. We also saw the likes of Cody Schock, Henry Miller Tristan Lane and Jerry Robin busting out their best moves in the sand to get themselves positioned well into the top 20. Heres a look at some of our riders at Round 6.

Southwick is a treat for both rider and spectator alike.
