The Ranch LL Regional - Practice Darkroom

Contributors: Chelsea Stratso Aran Eversman

I can remember being a kid, dreaming of racing Loretta Lynn's. I learned about qualifiers when someone described it to me like this: "Anyone can go to Areas. Great riders move onto Regionals, and the best make it to Loretta Lynn's." Today, photographers Chelsea Stratso and Aran Eversman headed out to The Ranch MX in Anza, Calif. to get a look at the top amateurs dicing for position at the Southwest Regional qualifier. It's the last stop before Loretta's, so it's a do-or- die for those looking to show up at Loretta's ranch in early August.
