Additionally, following two highly successful inaugural events, both the Tennessee and Utah Nationals return to the 2014 schedule.

“It has long been our goal to present the most legendary, spectacular tracks in American motocross on the schedule, as well as mixing in a few new facilities to add diversity to the schedule and new challenges for the best riders in the world,” said MX Sports Pro Racing President Davey Coombs. “In 2013 we presented new rounds in Tennessee and Utah, both performed even better than we hoped. Now we look forward to yet another new venue in Indiana, as well as the return of the iconic Glen Helen Raceway in Southern California as the 2014 opener. Adding those events in with such premier motocross tracks as RedBud, Unadilla, Washougal, Hangtown and more, and you have the makings of an exciting summer of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross for fans all over the country.”

The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is the pinnacle of professional motocross racing, attracting the world’s most talented athletes to compete on the country’s toughest and most scenic motocross tracks.

Reigning 450 Class Champion, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto, will look to defend his Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship crown during the 2014 season, while 250 Class Champion Eli Tomac makes his move to the 450 Class.

Adam Cianciarulo Earns RC Hard Charger Award at Lake Elsinore Finale

29 08 2013

James Stewart Wins $25,000 Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot Championship

MORGANTOWN, WV – August 29, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, concluded its 12-race series last Saturday in Lake Elsinore, Calif. with the second running of the Red Bull Lake Elsinore National. Despite his absence at the season finale, Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart wrapped up the $25,000 Motorcycle-Superstore.com Holeshot Championship, while the Toyota/JGR/Yamaha team stepped up to sweep both 450 Class holeshots at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park.

For the fourth consecutive round, GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac laid down the fastest lap time of the 250 Class timed qualifying sessions with a time of 02:09.1, earning the final Oakley Bomb Award of the season. Toyota/JGR/Yamaha’s Josh Grant earned his second Oakley Bomb Award of the year with a fast lap of 02:09.6 in the 450 Class timed qualifying sessions.

Each rider was awarded the one-of-a-kind Oakley Bomb trophy and now has one point towards the season tally that determines an overall winner in the Fastest Lap Program at series end. Tomac claimed the honors in the 250 Class with nine Oakley Bomb Awards throughout the season, while Ryan Villopoto topped the 450 Class with seven.

The Ricky Carmichael Hard Charger Award is given each round to a racer who embodies a never-give-up mentality, despite any setbacks that may occur during the race. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo has experienced many setbacks as a rookie competitor against a deep field of talent in the 250 Class, but the 16-year-old amateur motocross star has continued to improve throughout the season. At the Lake Elsinore National last Saturday, Cianciarulo got off to a bad start in Moto 1 of the 250 Class where he came through the opening lap in the 34th position. Cianciarulo immediately began pushing his way through the pack where he ultimately finished 14th in Moto 1, passing a total of 20 riders along the way. Cianciarulo experienced bad luck in the second moto, finishing 40th place to claim 18th overall for the day.

The Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot Championship is brand new to Lucas Oil Pro Motocross this season, courtesy of Motorcycle-Superstore.com. Championship points are tallied over the course of 12 rounds in both the 450 and 250 Class, where each Moto 1 holeshot winner gets one point and the Moto 2 holeshot winner gets two points. If the same rider holeshots both motos of the day, that rider would get an additional bonus point for a total of four points, thus creating a mini-championship inside the series championship. The final payoff will be a $25,000 check for the 450 Class winner and $15,000 for the 250 Class winner.

GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn wrapped up the $15,000 Motorcycle-Superstore.com Holeshot Championship at Round 10 but it was his GEICO Honda teammate Zach Osborne who claimed both holeshots at the season finale. Osborne collected four points for the day and an ultimate finish of second place in the overall championship.

Heading into the final round, the 450 Class Motorcycle-Superstore Holeshot Championship was still up for grabs between James Stewart, who had nine points, Justin Barcia with eight points and Ryan Villopoto with six.

However, it was the Toyota/JGR/Yamaha team of Josh Grant and Justin Brayton who shared the honors at the season finale as Grant grabbed the Moto 1 holeshot and Brayton claimed the holeshot in Moto 2. As a result, the $25,000 bonus was awarded to the points leader Stewart, despite his absence at the final round.

Villopoto and Tomac Emerge Victorious at Red Bull Lake Elsinore National

25 08 2013

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. It’s also well known to students of the sport’s history as the site of the Lake Elsinore Grand Prix, which was featured prominently in the epic motorcycle racing documentary film On Any Sunday back in 1971 – one year before the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship was born.

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 Red Bull Lake Elsinore National begins Saturday, August 24 at 3:30 p.m. ET with live coverage of 450 Moto 1 on NBC Sports Network and AlliSports.com. Live coverage of second motos continues on Fox Sports 2 and AlliSports.com beginning at 6 p.m. Same day coverage of 250 Moto 1 will air on NBC Sports Network at 10 p.m. ET.

Ryan Villopoto, Eli Tomac Clinch 2013 Championships at the Inaugural Built Ford Tough Utah National

18 08 2013

Title Triumphs Result in Historic Day at Miller Motorsports Park

TOOELE, UT – August 18, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Over 21,000 fans were on hand to witness a historic day at Miller Motorsports Park for Saturday’s Built Ford Tough Utah National, where two champions were crowned at the inaugural event in Tooele, Utah. By virtue of a 1-1 moto sweep, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto captured his second career 450 Class Championship, while GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac clinched his first ever 250 Class title at Round 11 of the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing.

Villopoto began the day with his third consecutive Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot in Moto 1 of the 450 Class, immediately putting a gap on the rest of the field. Toyota/JGR/Yamaha’s Justin Brayton jumped into the second place position early on, with Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey and Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart close in tow. Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Trey Canard made his way into third, where he maintained a comfortable position throughout the first moto.

Villopoto and Dungey finished first and second respectively in Moto 1, thus extending the championship chase into Moto 2.

Rockstar Energy Racing’s Ryan Sipes captured the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot in Moto 2 but it was Villopoto who commanded the early lead. Dungey stuck close behind as the 2012 450 Class Champion attempted to keep his title hopes alive at the penultimate round. However, Villopoto set a pace that couldn’t be matched, finishing eleven seconds ahead of Dungey in Moto 2.

Canard put forth a strong performance at the inaugural event, claiming third overall with a pair of third place finishes.

Villopoto’s nearly flawless performance at the Utah National was enough to clinch the 2013 championship and become only the eleventh rider in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross to win more than a single 450 Class Championship. Furthermore, Villopoto’s second title carries the Washington native to a total of five Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships across the 250 and 450 Classes.

“It is gnarly to be at this level of racing but you just take it year by year and race by race. There’s really no time to sit down and look at it as how many races do we need to win,” Villopoto commented regarding his career number of championships. “The thing that keeps us going as racers is definitely winning. Yeah, winning is fun but during the week it’s tough.”

In the 250 Class, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Martin Davalos grabbed the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot in Moto 1 but the GEICO Honda teammates of Zach Osborne, Justin Bogle and Wil Hahn surrounded the leader right away. Osborne briefly took over the lead before 250 Class points leader Eli Tomac made his move to the front.

Rookie Adam Cianciarulo inserted his Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki into the brigade of Hondas early on where he maintained the second place position for a majority of the race. Reigning 250 Class Champion Blake Baggett began Moto 1 outside the top ten but the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider caught and eventually passed his teammate for the second place position. Cianciarulo held on to capture a career best finish of third place in Moto 1, followed by Tomac’s closest title challenger, Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen.

Heading into Moto 2, the 250 Class Championship was still up for grabs as Tomac and Roczen went head-to-head for valuable points. GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle grabbed the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot and the early lead until Roczen took it over on Lap 7. Tomac came from behind to apply pressure on Roczen before the points leader eventually took over the lead position.

Although Tomac had the upper hand on Roczen in Moto 2, the championship wasn’t completely determined until Baggett entered the second place battle with Roczen late in the race. Baggett’s last-lap pass on Roczen was enough to give Tomac the edge he needed to secure the 250 Class Championship with a 1-1 sweep at the penultimate round.

“I didn’t really know I had the championship wrapped up, I was just going with the flow,” Tomac said after Moto 2. “I didn’t really think it was going to happen today, I am sort of in shock right now. I think it will sink in more after I get some rest, right now I’m pretty tired and just out of energy.”

Baggett captured second overall with a consistent 2-2 moto score, while Roczen came in third with 4-3 finishes.

The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship season finale will take place next Saturday, August 24 in Lake Elsinore, Calif., with the Red Bull Lake Elsinore National.

Ryan Villopoto, Eli Tomac Sweep the Built Ford Tough Unadilla National

11 08 2013

New York’s Legendary Unadilla MX Hosts Round 10 of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross

NEW BERLIN, NY – August 10, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, descended upon central New York’s historic Unadilla MX on Saturday for the annual Built Ford Tough Unadilla National. New Berlin’s scenic property hosted the tenth round of the 13-race championship, marking the series’ final stop on the East coast before heading west for the last two rounds of competition.

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto took another step toward capturing the 450 Class Championship after sweeping both motos at Unadilla. It was a flawless day for Villopoto, beginning with his impressive performance in the morning’s timed qualifying session where he laid down the fastest lap time in the 450 Class.

From there, Villopoto captured the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot in Moto 1 of the 450 Class to grab an early lead over Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey. Dungey was accompanied in the early laps by BTO Sports.com/KTM’s Andrew Short and N-FAB/TiLube Yamaha’s Bobby Kiniry. Kiniry soon ran into issues that forced the New York native to pull off in Moto 1, while Short eventually dropped outside the top five.

Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Barcia and Trey Canard joined Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart in moving through the pack early on as the trio quickly caught up to Dungey in the second place position. Canard encountered a mechanical issue that removed him from the battle, allowing his teammate Barcia to move into fourth. Stewart pressured Dungey for the second place position in Moto 1 but the reigning 450 Class Champion held strong to finish 20 seconds behind Villopoto.

Villopoto’s success continued in Moto 2, where he grabbed his second consecutive Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot to gain an early lead on the field. Barcia also put himself in a favorable position off the start as he matched Villopoto’s early pace while running second. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer got through the first turn just in time to clear himself of the carnage that set Canard, Mike Alessi, Stewart and several others considerably behind on the opening lap.

Dungey began the second moto mid-pack but quickly worked his way up to the third place battle between Toyota/JGR/Yamaha’s Josh Grant and Weimer. Weimer and Dungey made their way around Grant before engaging in a battle of their own. Heading into the final lap of Moto 2, Dungey applied the pressure to Weimer and despite a hard charge by Dungey in the final corners; Weimer came away with third place in the moto.

Villopoto’s 1-1 score put the 450 Class points leader atop the podium for the sixth time this season for a total of 14 moto wins through the first ten rounds. New York native Justin Barcia produced a 4-2 moto score to capture second overall in his home state, while Dungey rounded out the podium with 2-4 finishes.

“The highlight of the day was definitely getting two holeshots and to be able to get two clean starts out front,” Villopoto said. “I really enjoyed the track. It has a lot of line choices and it’s honestly becoming one of my favorite tracks because you can go fast and take completely different lines than other people.

In the 250 Class, GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac put forth a flawless performance in New York to capture his fifth overall win of the season. Tomac wasn’t able to secure a good start in Moto 1 but his GEICO Honda teammate Wil Hahn captured the Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot and the early lead over MYPLASH/Metal Mulisha/Star Racing/Yamaha’s Jeremy Martin. Martin then moved into the lead, leaving Hahn to battle with Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen in the second place position. Tomac proved to be unstoppable as he took over the lead and claimed the Moto 1 victory. Jeremy Martin maintained second and GEICO Honda’s Zach Osborne claimed a last minute third place finish.

In Moto 2, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Martin Davalos captured his first Motorcycle Superstore Holeshot of the season but it was Red Bull KTM’s Roczen who commanded the early lead. Jeremy Martin, GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle and Davalos rode close in tow behind Roczen, while Tomac was forced to come from behind once again in Moto 2. However, Tomac quickly set his sights on the front as he challenged Roczen for the lead. After a hard fought battle in the final laps of Moto 2, Tomac emerged victorious to carry a 1-1 sweep at Unadilla.
