BILLINGS -- Outdoor Supercross took center stage at Montana Fair at MetraPark Tuesday evening. Most riders got started at a young age, with some essentially still in diapers. That's no different for Whitehall's Levi Newby, who began at 5 years old.

"Just right away I loved it," Newby said. "(It's) super fun, indoors, people in the stands always cheering -- super-rad environment. Just kind of got into it that way. My dad used to do it, and I just kind of fell in love with it from the beginning."

Newby wound up finishing fourth in the SX 250 Pro class and seventh in the SX 450 Pro class on Tuesday.
