NBC Sports steps the "eff" up: Outdoor Motocross Live on network television for the first time in history!

I don't mean to be bombastic with my enthusiasm for this news, and yes, I wish they were doing the entire series, but we're talking about races like Red Bud Live on the Fourth of freaking July! And then later Budds Creek, one of my favorite tracks! Live on the National Broadcasting Company's air! Okay, enough exclamation points... Racer X Online has the story:

“This television package with NBC and SPEED is the first step in a series of opportunities to bring the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship into the mainstream,” said MX Sports President Davey Coombs. “For the first time in the history of the sport, fans can watch their favorite riders on live network television as well as on cable. None of this would be possible without the trust and confidence AMA Pro Racing has in MX Sports and our partners. Motorcycle racing in America has been in a transition period over the past year and this is a good sign of things to come.”

Good show!
