We were off to Atlanta for the ninth round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross and the big 250 East/West shootout. You really can't top the energy that comes from a shootout and this year didn't disappoint. Unfortunately, if you're not a top 10 guy, the odds of you getting through to the main are pretty slim so the battle was on. The very first 250 heat race saw a red flag when Wilson Fleming #98 suffered a bad crash and they had to do a staggered start for the restart. We heard that Wilson broke his femur and his collarbone and we wish him a speedy recovery. One really cool thing from the FXR camp was we saw was Josh Osby grabbing the LCQ win and he along with Cunningham and Weltin had themselves a lot of TV time. Let's take a look at the action from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, GA.
