2017 Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals 

After six thrilling rounds of action in Kamloops, Prince George, Calgary, Regina, Courtland (Ontario) and this past weekend in Notre-Dame-du-Bon-Conseil (Quebec), the 2017 Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals now makes its way back to Nova Scotia, to Pleasant Valley MX in Truro this weekend for Round 7 of its 25th Anniversary season. 

As always there are a handful of Atlantic Canadian riders competing again this year, led by MX1 stalwart Tyler Medaglia, who currently sits in 5th place overall in the Premier class standings. Tyler races out of Pleasant Valley. Halifax's Davey Fraser will also be competing in MX2 class. 

The gates open at 6:30am both days this weekend (July 22nd-23rd), however the action doesn't really get going until around 9:00am both days. Saturday is a full day of amateur racing, while on Sunday the Pros tackle Pleasant Valley, with practice and qualifying taking place in the morning, and the first moto beginning shortly after 12:00 noon. The action typically wraps up around 5:00pm both days.
