Former Champions Rick Johnson and Jeremy McGrath to Serve as All-Star Analysts for
Season Opening Honda Fox Raceway I National
Full Slate of Live Coverage Set to Air
on MAVTV Motorsports Network and MAVTV Plus
The countdown to the start of the 50th Anniversary of theLucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, is nearing its completion and what lies ahead is one of the most anticipated seasons in the series’ storied history. Southern California’s Fox Raceway will serve as the site of the opening round of this landmark summer campaign, as the Honda Fox Raceway I National, presented by Fox Racing, will commence on Saturday, May 28, with a full slate of live coverage on both MAVTV Motorsports Network and the MAVTV Plus streaming platform.
Jason Weigandt, the voice of American motocross, will anchor the broadcast team as host and lead commentator. He’ll be joined in the television booth by a pair of Pro Motocross All-Stars, as Rick Johnson and Jeremy McGrath team up to fill the analyst role. A pair of Southern California natives, Johnson and McGrath are two of the sport’s most decorated and influential figures, with a combined six AMA National Motocross Championships and 50 wins between them. Johnson’s three 250cc titles and two 500cc titles made him one of the biggest stars of the 1980’s, while McGrath, the most prolific rider in AMA Supercross history, captured his lone motocross championship during the 1995 season.
