2000 – A Doctor at Every Supercross

After Asterisk decided to fund the effort it was time to approach a Physician. Dr. John “Doc” Bodnar has been a consistent presence at Southern California races since 1992.   He had begun trackside as a flagger, he knew the riders, had resources in the area, and was definitely the right man for the job.  He shared duties with other physicians when he could not attend, but most important was that the process had begun and American professional Supercross had a series Physician.  When Supercross was over, the Road 2 Recovery Foundation sponsored the Medical presence for the Motocross series.  There was now an expectation of this added safety net.  Asterisk headquarters decided to provide a Physician at every Supercross and Motocross.
