Best road trip story.
We took off from Georgia and drove all the way to California! It was awesome! We stopped in Louisiana and raced at Wildwood MX. After a weekend of racing with my buddy Axel Ward we left there and headed west. After a broken hitch in Texas, we finally made it to the Grand Canyon. Next, we drove past the Hoover Dam (they would not let us take the motorhome and trailer across) and then we drove down the Las Vegas Strip. The lights were crazy! The next stop was Hangtown! That track was awesome and there were so many fast kids there.
What’s your favorite track to ride?
WW Motocross Park

Eli Tomac. He is super-fast and never gives up!
