North Carolina duo ready to win Motocross event at 'home track' in Blountville

BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. - Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville is hosting the 2nd Annual Red Bull Tennessee National Motocross Championships June 28.

Tyler Peters and Aaron Leininger are teammates at AG Motorsports. The North Carolina natives have been regulars at Muddy Creek since they started racing more than 10 years ago.

They hope the experience will pay off at one of the toughest tracks on the circuit.

"Every track you to go is completely different," Peters told News 5 WCYB.

"Tire selection is different. How you set up your suspension is different. I definitely have a little bit of a head start."

Peters and Leininger will compete in the 250 class races.

"It gives you a physical advantage," Leininger told News 5 WCYB.

"You know what to do and when to do it on certain parts of the track."

The competition starts Saturday June 28 at 1 p.m.
