Outdoor Motocross racing was back over the weekend at the famed High Point Raceway in the elevations of Pennsylvania. This is the first race of the season on the east coast and third event of the summer tour.
Adam Cianciarulo grabbed the 450 Moto 1 holeshot and was out front. As the moto got underway, Ken Roczen found himself briefly on the ground as did Chase Sexton. In what was a crazy race, Cianciarulo crashed into a lapped rider right before the finish. He regained his composure to take the win. Cianciarulo was back out with great speed in the second moto. Eli Tomac and Adam Cianciarulo battled for the lead as the moto got underway. Tomac cruised to a win. Cianciarulo settled for fourth. The consistency of Dylan Ferrandis’ two second place podiums earned him the overall and points lead for the season stealing away Ken Roczen’s hard earned red plate.
In the 250 Moto #1, RJ Hampshire had a solid lead, but Jett Lawrence was behind Hampshire making his way to the front. Suddenly, Hampshire’s bike suffered mechanical issues, knocking him out of the race. When the dirt settled, Jalek Swoll took the Moto 1 win. In the second Moto, Colt Nichols was out front with the holeshot. Justin Cooper would take the lead away from Nichols. Cooper managed to hold off Jett Lawrence for the win. Jalek Swoll took home the overall finish for the day. Jett Lawrence continues to lead the points in the 250 class.
