Racing got underway today at the NMA Ponca City Grand National Amateur Motocross Championships in Ponca City, Oklahoma, and it was a big day for Cooper Webb and Justin Bogle, who grabbed two wins each.Both Bogle and Webb came into Ponca City as favorites to win their respective classes and both riders produced, with Bogle topping the 250 STK Pro and 450 STK Pro races, while Webb won his races in the 85/150 STK 14-16 and 150 4-Stroke Thru 16 classes.
