I think mainly because it's cheaper to get into, you can ride MX in ALOT more places than street, it's more "famliy oriented" for alot of people......good question though. i started out on dirtbikes, never raced or anything like that but at age 10 had my first CR80 and it's been 2 wheels of some sort every since. i also think that alot of parents think it's safer for them and/or their children to ride MX as apposed to streetbikes. you can go almost anywhere and you'll see some or alot of people out on motocross bikes, in a field,local track,wherever....just seems like it's easier to get started on MX bikes maybe? and now with all the freestyle guys making it big....it's opened up alot of doors to people that might not be able to race and be competitive or even afford it. a dirttrack can be made anywhere there's ahhhhhhh dirt and fairly simple and straightforward in doing it, cost little to nothing for the average person who has a little land to get a backhow and tractor to make a track...BUT a racetrack for street bikes.......that's a while other can of worms and you're talking about a buttload of money just to even think about getting one started. sorry if i'm just rambling but of course it makes sense to me.
Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.
