Congrats to Grant Langston for taking 2nd overall at the Millville outdoor national over the weekend! Langston went 2-2 in both motos to finish right behind RC in his final AMA Motocross race. After this solid showing Langston now sits 3rd in the overall championship points, only 11 points back from the leaders.
As for the leaders, Tim Ferry is now one of them! With the absence of James Stewart it's a free-for-all for the championship. After a couple disappointing motos at Millville (8-6), Ferry lost a little ground and is now tied for 1st place overall with Andrew Short. Look for Ferry to come out swinging at Steel City to keep that 1st place position. And you can count on Langston to give it his all to make up those 11 points and more! Good luck guys!

Millville also marked the entrance of a couple top amateur riders into the professional ranks. Both of whom happen to be rocking etnies, and both killed it in their first weekend. Trey Canard of the Sobe/Samsung team crashed out of moto 1 but came back strong in moto 2 to finish 4th in his first pro race!
