I don't do the television thing, but I follow the YouTube channel. Some of the other quad racing leagues are more professionally run and presented, but what they're doing is an interesting take. They've certainly found some nice locations to race in.

I don't like that the quads are heavy instead of smaller and more agile. They're basically rigged to explode in a crash, too. Actual quads are much more durable. And I'm not a fan of the angle they're taking; the sport can be much more inclusive but they're going after the young male/x-games market pretty exclusively. It's harder for others to take it seriously that way.

But the sport is young. Interesting to see where it goes.
