MOUNT VERNON — The quads were noisy. Tempers flared. The crowd cheered for every jump.
Just another day at motocross.
Many of the best racers in the state of Ohio came together Tuesday as Motocross made a triumphant return to the Knox County Fair.
The event hasn’t been run for a few years. Organizers brought it back for a trial run this year, with the hope of expanding to a full-size course next year.
But Tuesday’s course was just fine for area racers.
Danville’s Brad Mickley had arguably the best day of anyone at the event. He won all three of his races, leading from start to finish in all of them, claiming the checkered flag in the Open Quad, the Extra Quad and the Money Quad races.
“The last one is the one that really mattered,” said Mickley.
Mickley has been racing for four years, inspired by his uncle, Russell Mickley.
