2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Concludes in Southern California

LAKE ELSINORE, CA – August 25, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, wrapped up its 12-round series on Saturday with the second running of the Red Bull Lake Elsinore National in Lake Elsinore, Calif. With temperatures topping out at over 100 degrees, Southern California’s season finale presented some of the most grueling race conditions of the season.

After wrapping up the 450 Class title last round, Ryan Villopoto swept the final two motos of the season at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park, capturing his eighth overall victory of the season. Newly crowned 250 Class Champion Eli Tomac captured his seventh overall victory of the season with a moto score of 2-1.

Toyota/JGR/Yamaha’s Josh Grant kicked off Moto 1 of the 450 Class in a big way, grabbing his fourth Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot of the season. Grant was able to hold off Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Barcia and Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto to maintain the early lead. However, the recently crowned 450 Class Champion wasted no time moving to the front as he made the pass on Grant to take over the lead by lap five.

Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey started off just inside the top five, quickly moving into the third-place position, where he set his sights on Grant for the second place position. With two laps to go, Dungey made the pass on Grant to take over second place where he finished nearly 30 seconds behind Villopoto in the first moto.

Villopoto continued his dominance in Moto 2, grabbing the early lead after getting around Toyota/JGR/Yamaha’s Justin Brayton, the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot recipient. Dungey once again settled behind Villopoto in the second place position, with Barcia close in tow.

In Moto 2, a majority of the excitement came outside of the top three, including the race-long battle between Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer and Canadian Motocross Champion Brett Metcalfe. The duo started off just inside the top ten where they pushed their way through the pack and inside the top five. Weimer eventually broke away from Metcalfe and finished fourth place in Moto 2, giving the Idaho native fourth overall for the day with a moto score of 8-4. Barcia maintained third place in the final moto of the season, ultimately securing third overall with a 5-3 moto score.

Villopoto maintained a comfortable lead over Dungey in the second moto, securing his 18th moto win of the season. Villopoto’s eighth overall victory of 2013 puts the two-time 450 Class Champion in a three-way tie for 10th place for all-time race wins with a total of 12 career wins in the premier class.

“With the great team that I have behind me, we were really able to turn the ship and go in the right direction with tuning the bike this season,” Villopoto said.

On his upcoming ankle surgery during the off-season, Villopoto said, “We’ll be back on the bike before you know it and we’ll be focused on the prep for supercross. We’ll go to the Monster Energy Cup to see where we’re at and what we need to work on and after that A1 [the first round] will be right around the corner.”

Dungey put forth a consistent 2-2 moto score, finishing second overall for the day.

“I would have liked it to be a little better but 2-2 was a good day. I was happier with the second moto even though the track was really rough, really choppy and tough. I’m just happy to be ending the season healthy,” Dungey said.

Heading into the final round, GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac had an eight-race winning streak through the last four rounds but Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen brought his streak to an end as the German claimed the Moto 1 win in the 250 Class.

It was GEICO Honda’s Zach Osborne who grabbed the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot in Moto 1 and an onslaught of competition followed close behind. Roczen immediately grabbed the lead, with MYPLASH/Metal Mulisha/Star Racing Yamaha’s Jeremy Martin, Tomac and teammate Marvin Musquin close in tow. Musquin made a mistake and dropped back early on, but Martin and Tomac kept pushing in an attempt to catch the leader.

However, Roczen didn’t break as he secured the Moto 1 win ahead of Tomac and the rookie duo of Jeremy Martin and Cooper Webb, who finished third and fourth respectively in the first moto.

“I felt really good after the first moto. It’s a whole different feeling when you get the start and you’re up there,” Roczen said. “Overall I’m just glad that I’m healthy at the end of the season. I’m going to be on 450 next year so it’s going to be really different and I’m going to change some things to get better.”

In Moto 2, Osborne grabbed the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot once again but Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett claimed the early lead. Tomac put himself into the second place position early on but Baggett maintained a comfortable lead throughout the moto.

MYPLASH/Metal Mulisha/Star Racing Yamaha’s Cooper Webb had a breakthrough ride in Moto 2, capturing a career-best third-place finish. However, the position didn’t come easy to the 250 Class rookie as he battled with Osborne for a majority of the race. In the end, Webb was able to hold his position, with Osborne and Jeremy Martin close behind.

“It was definitely gnarly today, the heat didn’t seem to bother me too much, I was just trying to put consistent laps on a pretty brutal track,” Webb said. “I’ve kind of struggled with the mental side this year and felt like the past two weeks I recharged my batteries and went in with a different outlook. I’m satisfied with the last race for sure and I couldn’t have ended it a better way.”

Despite a valiant charge by Tomac at the end of Moto 2, Baggett held strong to cross the finish line in the first place position. However, Tomac was awarded the first place finish in Moto 2 as a result of a penalty given to Baggett. Tomac claimed the final overall victory of the season with a 2-1 moto score.

“It was one of those days where it wasn’t my track and it wasn’t my day. I feel like it just wasn’t there for me today and there was no use in going out there and doing something stupid,” Tomac said. “It was overall a really good year. I wasn’t really expecting to win eight motos in a row like I did. It went really, really well.”

Roczen experienced a crash that knocked him back a few positions in Moto 2, finishing second overall for the day with a 1-7 moto score. Webb put in a career best overall performance, finishing third overall with a 4-3 moto score in his rookie season of 250 Class competition.

2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Concludes This Saturday With 2nd Annual Red Bull Lake Elsinore National

21 08 2013

Southern California’s Hotbed of Motocross Hosts Final Round of Championship

MORGANTOWN, WV – August 21, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Following 11 rounds of grueling competition on the most challenging and demanding tracks in the country, the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, will come to a dramatic conclusion on Saturday with the 2nd Annual Red Bull Lake Elsinore National in Lake Elsinore, Calif.

Although the 250 and 450 Class titles have already been decided, there is still plenty on the line as riders look to capture the final overall victory of the season at Round 12. For Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey, a win at Saturday’s finale would allow the 2012 450 Class Champion to move into second place in all-time race wins in the 450 Class, where he currently sits tied with Bob Hannah at 27 career wins, three of which he earned in 2013. A fourth victory this season would also allow Dungey to maintain an undefeated record at the Lake Elsinore National.

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto has put forth a dominant season, winning 16 of the first 22 motos to clinch the 450 Class Championship one round early. Villopoto has enjoyed seven overall wins through the first 11 rounds this season, putting him in a three-way-tie with Mike LaRocco and Gary Jones at 11 all-time career wins. Furthermore, an overall victory at Saturday’s Lake Elsinore National would put Villopoto among the top 10 all-time race winners in the 450 Class.

Team Honda Muscle Milk riders Justin Barcia and Trey Canard, sitting third and fourth place, respectively, in the championship standings, will each look to become first-time winners at Saturday’s finale. Barcia has finished as high as second place overall in his first full season in the 450 Class, while Canard put forth a season-best finish of second place at Round 9.

Recently crowned 250 Class Champion, Eli Tomac, heads into the final round of racing with considerable momentum as he enjoys an eight-moto winning streak over the last four rounds. GEICO Honda’s Tomac has been especially dominant in the second half of the season where he quickly gained valuable points over previous points leader Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen. Roczen holds seven moto wins so far this season and the German World Champion will look to add two more to his record before the season’s end.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett sits fourth in the championship standings heading into the final round; where he currently holds one overall win this season. In 2012, Baggett capped off his 250 Class championship-winning season by claiming the inaugural Lake Elsinore National victory and the California native looks to make it two-in-a-row this Saturday. Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin sits just 15 points ahead of Baggett in the championship standings with two overall victories to date.

Located in the hotbed of the motocross industry, and about an hour outside of the major metropolitan areas of Los Angeles and San Diego, Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park serves as an ideal location for fans of the sport across the entire southern portion of the state.

The Marc Peters-designed venue is state-of-the-art in terms of motocross and features multiple elevation changes, spectacular obstacles, and easy access for the fans. The facility was designed with not only riders but spectators in mind as well, with paved roads and walkways, lush landscaping, camping amenities and designated areas at multiple elevations for viewing.

The Yoshimura R&D backed GEICO squad went to Colorado looking for victory, and they delivered. Hometown golden boy, Eli Tomac, was all business on Saturday with Colorado fans cheering him on. 250MX Moto 1 saw a tough battle between he and the formidable Ken Roczen. Tomac had a last lap altercation, preventing him from taking the win. When the gate dropped on 250MX Moto 2, Eli got his second chance. With a clear opening in the lead and Roczen behind him, he was able to open up a commanding lead and a big win, much to the delight of Colorado fans. The final results declared Tomac as the overall winner. Teammate Zach Osborne nabbed the holeshot in Moto 1, and beat Roczen in Moto 2 to finish directly behind Tomac for second. GEICO rider Justin Bogle battled from the back in Moto 1, passing 7 riders for 13th. He finished a more fortunate 7th in Moto 2.

Consistent and fast; two words to describe Yoshimura backed Muscle Milk Honda riders Justin Barcia and Trey Canard. Nothing could stop these guys as they churned out top 5 results in both 450MX motos. Barcia showed his Yoshimura horsepower and came out swinging with back to back holeshots. He led the pack for nearly half of Moto 1. Bam Bam took to the podium with 3rd overall. Teammate Trey Canard finished the day with 4th.

Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart showed serious determination. He suffered from a lackluster start in the first moto, only to get tangled up with a rider whom fell in front of him. He went to work, and made it up to 15th before the checkers. James’ second race went considerably better, as he was able to get out of the gate in the top 10, picking off 7 riders to finish the moto in 3rd. James was 7th overall in the 450MX class for the day.

Villopoto and Roczen Sweep 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Opener at Hangtown

19 05 2013

45th Running of Hangtown Motocross Classic Draws Record Crowd 

SACRAMENTO, CA – May 19, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – With a record event attendance of nearly 25,000 fans, the 45th running of the Red Bull Hangtown Motocross Classic proved to be one for the history books as the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, kicked off in Sacramento, Calif. on Saturday. After missing an entire season in 2012 due to injury, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto made a valiant return, sweeping both 450 Class motos atop one of the most stacked fields in the series’ recent history. Additionally, Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen claimed his first career 250 Class overall victory at Hangtown.

Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart, who missed most of the second half of the 2012 season, made a comeback of his own by grabbing the Motorcycle-Superstore.com holeshot in Moto 1, garnering one point toward the overall championship holeshot bonus of $25,000 in the 450 Class. However, keeping the lead wasn’t an easy task as three other former 450 Class Champions and several returning contenders chased the 2008 champ early on.

Villopoto took over the lead on the opening lap with Stewart and defending champion Ryan Dungey close in tow. The trio diced it out in the first half of Moto 1 but it was ultimately Villopoto who locked in the moto win, with Dungey in second and Stewart in third.

Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Trey Canard returned to the Hangtown Motocross Classic for the first time since his 250 Class championship-winning season in 2010. Canard made a statement early on as he jumped in behind the lead battle and even closed in on Stewart near the end of Moto 1. Just behind was the epic battle for fifth place between Canard’s teammate Barcia, BTO Sports/KTM’s Andrew Short, Lucas Oil Troy Lee Honda’s Malcolm Stewart, Smartop/MotoConcepts Mike Alessi and 450 Class rookie Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson. Malcolm Stewart, Alessi and Wilson experienced issues that dropped all three in the running order, while Canard and Barcia prevailed, rounding out the top five, with Short sixth.

James Stewart began Moto 2 in similar fashion to the first, grabbing the Motorcycle-Superstore holeshot once again and taking over the points lead in the season-long chase for the end-of-the-year cash prize. From there, Stewart engaged in a battle for the lead with Dungey, while Villopoto followed close behind. Near the halfway mark, Villopoto made his move to the front, leaving Dungey and Stewart to fight for the second place position. Dungey bested Stewart for the second place spot in Moto 2, giving the Minnesota native second overall for the day with a pair of second place finishes. Stewart, the 2012 Hangtown winner, scored (3-3) for third place overall. Villopoto went on to secure the first overall win of the 2013 season with a score of (1-1).

“Hangtown has always been a rough place for me so for the bike to feel like it did today was amazing,” Villopoto said. “I’m obviously happy with that and happy with how I rode. I feel like we’re in a really good place and it’s only going to get better from here.”

The 250 Class was set to be a showcase with a full lineup of returning contenders, including defending 250 Class Champion Blake Baggett. Fresh off a wrist injury, the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider had no reservations about getting to the front early on as he grabbed the Motorcycle-Superstore holeshot in Moto 1. However, the Red Bull KTM duo of Marvin Musquin and Ken Roczen quickly gained control of the lead. Musquin led three laps before his teammate commanded the lead for the remainder of Moto 1.

GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac began the first moto just outside of the top five but made his way into podium contention early on. Tomac first set his sights on Musquin and then made his way around Baggett to eventually secure second place in Moto 1. Baggett finished third, while Musquin took fourth and MyPlash Star RacingYamaha/Metal Mulisha’s Cooper Webb rounded out the top five in his Pro class debut.

In Moto 2, GEICO Honda’s Zach Bell grabbed the Motorcycle-Superstore holeshot but it was once again Roczen who jumped out front on the opening lap. Roczen set the pace early on and Baggett remained close in tow throughout the first half of the race. Roczen eventually put a gap on the defending champion in the final laps of Moto 2, going on to secure his first career victory in the 250 Class.

“Coming here, I didn’t really know what to expect because I sort of took some time to have fun during the week off [between supercross and motocross],” Roczen said. “It’s important to me to keep things fun but next week it’s time to put in some work and make my performance even better.”

Ram Truck, RCH Racing Team Up for Motocross

15 05 2013

AUBURN HILLS, Mi – May 15, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Ram Truck and SRT Motorsports today announced they have partnered with RCH (Ricky Carmichael and Carey Hart) Racing to field a team in the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing.

CHRYSLER GROUP LLC RCH RACING

“The Ram Truck brand is looking forward to working with Ricky Carmichael, Carey Hart and Broc Tickle, and being part of RCH Racing’s success in the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “Motorcyclists rely on durable, proven trucks. Look at any motocross parking lot and all you see are pickups. Motocross is especially effective in reaching younger truck buyers, and we expect our Ram Express will make a lot of new fans this year.”

Michigan-native Broc Tickle will campaign the No. 20 RCH Racing Suzuki in the premier 450 class for the full 12-race series. He finished ninth in the recently completed Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series, advancing to the Main Event in all 17 races. It was his first season of 450SX competition with RCH Racing.

“I’m really excited for the outdoor motocross season to start,” said Tickle. “I feel like our RCH Racing team has made really big strides the last four months and we want to carry that over into the outdoor season. I had the best outdoor season of my career last year and when I think about how fast our Suzuki’s are right now, it’s really easy to get pumped. Working with Ricky – the greatest outdoor racer of all-time – is a huge bonus. I feel that we’re in a great position to have success. I’m healthy and I have something to prove to everyone Having Ram on-board for the motocross season is really cool because our fans are die-hards and they love trucks. I can’t wait to get to Hangtown (Motocross Classic just outside Sacramento, Calif.).”

Tickle finished third in last year’s motocross championship. He had an average finish of ninth.

“I am really looking forward to my first motocross season as an owner,” said Carmichael. “Broc had a great rookie season last year and we are hoping he improves this year on his Suzuki RM-Z450. The outdoors are a different animal from supercross and the whole RCH Racing team is looking forward to their first season racing outdoors.”

Hart, the team co-owner, agreed. “I’m really excited to have the RCH team racing their first motocross season. To change from the supercross season, we will be representing the Ram brand and running Ram livery on all of our bikes and hauler. The outdoor series allows us to help promote the Ram brand to a whole new audience. We are very excited to be working with their team.”

In addition to the traditional motocross stops, two new venues have been added to the schedule. The series makes its first visit to Muddy Creek Raceway near Bristol, Tenn. on June 1 and Miller Motorsports Park in Salt Lake City on August 17. The season opens May 18 in Sacramento, Calif. Race coverage will be provided by NBC, NBC Sports and FUEL TV.
