2016 Ponca City Amateur National | Day One

Here is a look at the racing action from Ponca City Amateur National Motocross Race

After a hiatus from the amateur racing circuit, the historic Ponca City Amateur National made a comeback this year with help from media and promotors. We stopped by Ponca City, Oklahoma, to take part in the event and watch some of the biggest amateur stars do what they do best. Have a look.
