On Friday night, I took my family to see Freestyle Motocross at the Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland, Maine.
I remember that there were a lot of kids at the Freestyle Motocross show at Oxford Plains Speedway. A lot of little kids were there.
The show was pretty dramatic, as all FMX shows must be. Unfortunately, Jason Rowe hit the front of the landing ramp and was out on the floor for a while. My son was initially unaffected by it, but as time went by with the paramedics working on him and preparing him to move, he got more and more upset. When everyone cheered for Jason and he gave us some devil horns back, my son broke out in panicked tears. We’ve talked about it a lot since. He doesn’t really dig noise from crowds anyway.
So, we hope Jason is OK and I posted some photos of the crowd in the MaineToday.com Seen photoblog.
