Main Events 450SX

Get ready for an action-packed summary of the 450SX Main Event, where the racers delivered an adrenaline-fueled performance on a challenging, rutted track, expertly prepped by the dedicated track crew.

The race began with Ken Roczen making a stunning start, seizing a significant lead. However, fortune turned as Roczen slid and crashed, losing his prime position and eventually finishing 12th after a struggle to restart his bike.

This twist in the race opened the door for Aaron Plessinger, who smoothly took over the lead. Demonstrating his skill in the soft track conditions, Plessinger maintained his position at the front, fending off relentless challenges to secure his first ever 450SX victory. His triumph was met with thunderous cheers from the crowd, as he now heads to Anaheim 2 wearing the prestigious red plate.

Cooper Webb, in a dramatic pursuit for the top spot, alternated between closing in on Plessinger and making errors that set him back. A late-race clash with Chase Sexton, who was being lapped, hindered Webb’s final push for victory, yet he still achieved his best result of the season with a strong second place.

Justin Barcia, bouncing back from a disappointing performance last week, secured a well-deserved podium finish. He showed early promise fighting for the lead and maintained a steady pace to clinch third, marking his best finish in the 2024 season so far.

Thrills and Spills in the 250SX Main Event

The 250SX Main Event was a breathtaking display of skill and nerve as riders pushed their limits on the driest track of the night. RJ Hampshire kicked off the action with a brilliant holeshot, leading in the initial laps. However, a slip-up in the whoops section allowed Garret Marchbanks to surge ahead.

Marchbanks led through the middle of the race, creating a small but significant gap over competitors Hampshire, Levi Kitchen, and Nate Thrasher. The dynamics shifted when Kitchen, in pursuit of Hampshire, took a fall, propelling Thrasher into a potential podium finish.

The race’s climax was nothing short of dramatic. As the white flag signaled the final lap, Marchbanks collided with a lapped rider, opening a golden opportunity for Thrasher to snatch the lead just past the finish line. Marchbanks gave chase but couldn’t manage to reclaim his position.

In an intense final stretch, Hampshire remained a strong contender, turning it into a thrilling three-way contest for the lead. Ultimately, Thrasher emerged victorious, marking his first win of the season. A dramatic highside crash in the penultimate turn cost Hampshire dearly, dropping him to sixth and paving the way for points leader Jordon Smith to sneak into third place, rounding off an electrifying race.
