FXR Racing Presents Behind the Lens from Minneapolis

FXR-Logo-2015

It was great to see the Monster Energy Supercross Series return to the land of 10,000 lakes as the State of Minnesota has provided us some incredible racing over the years. For 2017, the series headed to the brand new US Bank Stadium, where all eyes were on hometown boy Ryan Dungey. With a technical track for the riders to navigate, the main events were full of excitement for the passionate Minneapolis fans. When all was said and done, Kawasaki dominated both the 250SX and the 450SX main events as Joey Savagty and Eli Tomac stood atop the podiums at the end of the night.
