The Others...New Jersey.

I have to admit, it was a little strange watching supercross at 3:00 on a Saturday afternoon, but what a step in the right direction for the sport. We have had live coverage, but prime time right before Nascar. I personally think the way it was covered by the normal guys, Ralph, Jeff and Ricky was better than ever and the focus on the racing was great.

We have the excitement of the new schedule coming out this week. 2016 looks to hold many new things and an east coast season finale. 

New Jersey was awesome as supercross took over MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. Marvin Musquin would put a stamp on his 250 East championship season and receive his number 1 plate. Eli Tomac would get the win in the premier 450 class. 

Hometown guy Ronnie Stewart had the stands painted yellow, as fans in number 69 shirts were everywhere. He would not let his fans down as he made his way to the main event. 

This week Logan Karnow and Dustin Pipes put in solid rides to make the mains. Weston Peick and Kyle Partridge rode like warriors and Alex Ray again transferred strait to the main from a 4th place semi finish.

And now, The Others.
