Ken Roczen Back in Winning Form at Unadilla

Ken Roczen Back in Winning Form at Unadilla

The Lucas Oil Outdoor Motocross Championship was back after a couple week hiatus at the Unadilla Motocross track in New York.

As the gate dropped for the first 450 moto, Roczen had a great start running up front. Chase Sexton went down on the first lap. Several laps later, Aaron Plessinger went down while running in second. Roczen ended up winning the moto. Points leader Dylan Ferrandis finished second. In the second moto, Chase Sexton had collected himself and was ready to race. He grabbed the holeshot to lead the field. Roczen continued to move on a mission, getting around Sexton for the lead and the win. Roczen’s two wins earned him the overall.

In 250 Moto 1, Justin Cooper had the holeshot. He had a lot of pressure from Jett Lawrence, but Cooper was able to maintain the lead and secure the win.  In Moto 2, Justin Cooper was back out front with another holeshot. Jeremy Martin wasted no time getting to the front and stealing the lead away from Cooper. Jett Lawrence wasn’t one to be counted out, getting around both Cooper and Martin for the lead, the win and the overall.

The season is quickly winding down with just a few race weekends to go. Dylan Ferrandis continues to have a big lead in the points. In the 250 class, Justin Cooper leads Jett Lawrence by just four points.
