Here's something you could try for yourself at home.
While this is a sharp action shot, it is 'frozen' and there is no sense of speed. I can't do much about that with limited pp skills. However, here's what I did in an edit.
While groups of three objects are usually preferred, I found this group too busy.
Try a crop from the left to just behind the second rider and down from the top to just above the first rider's helmet.
Now, we have accentuated the space that a moving object needs to move into, if you follow that 'rule', by 'creating' more space on the RHS. At the same time, we have created a stronger visual.
I then added a big fat black frame and felt much better.
Any questions - frames, for example, Just get back to me?
