With only two manufacturers currently offering motocross specific machines, a lack of support from the factories, and several major series shrinking, the state of ATV racing isn’t looking as good as it was a few years ago. Luckily, the diehard riders, fans, and companies are still out there, driven by their collective passion. However, many are feeling anxious and scared, fearing extinction as the effects of this ATV recession are being felt all around the country. Is it time to hit the panic button? Is the end near? Fear not my fellow enthusiasts. When you really take the time to look at it, our sport is very young, and we’ve come a long way in that short time. While things might be rough now, there is hope for the future.
