OKLAHOMA'S OWN Justin Bogle was featured on the Moto Playground cover in 2011 at the age of 18, right, and was also the subject of an advertisement for Playground's sister magazine, The PICKLE Motocross Illustrated. The ads placed inside the Playground publications regularly feature youth and amateur racers, bringing early fame and notoriety to 6-year-olds, 8-year-olds, and 12-year-olds.
