Motocross Riders Flying Through East Texas

The Texas Pro Challenge Motocross is back at Swan Raceway Park, with more than ten thousand people expected to come out for the rapidly-growing sport.

"It's only been in the X Games five years," motocross rider Chuck Carothers explains, "and it's the number one draw, it's what everyone wants to see."

Carothers is an X Games freestyle motocross champion, and also a three-time winner at Swan Raceway Park. He says it's the unpredictable nature of the sport that makes it exciting.

"Right before I ride, I figure out what i'm going to do, but the crowd's always into it so sometimes that gets me pumped up and I go for it."
