Aaron Plessinger had a night to remember in front of his home crowd, winning his first ever heat race and 250 SX Main Event in Indianapolis.



Plessinger was in command all night, leading all 6 laps of his heat race and claiming his first ever SX heat race win. He carried this momentum into the 250SX main event, barreling out of the gate and quickly over taking first place from Audette within a few corners. Plessinger charged forward the entire race, putting down some of the fastest laps of the evening and distancing himself from the rest of the field, to a resounding career-first victory in Supercross. Aaron and second place finisher Malcolm Stewart put on quite the victory dance for the Indy SX fans, for one of the most unforgettable moments of the 2016 East Coast Championship Series.

Jason Anderson started the night strong with a well-earned win in heat race 1, over taking Brayton for first and then holding back Ryan Dungey to the finish line. In the main event Anderson had a slow start and was in 9th place during the opening laps.  Anderson put his head down and charged forward, reclaiming positions lap by lap. By the end of the race Anderson’s hard work paid off with a third place podium finish.



Thor rider Max Nagl made an impressive showing in the MXGP of Argentina, claiming third overall. In race 1 Nagl had a great jump out of the gate and was on Antonio Cairoli’s rear tire for the first few corners of the race. Nagl had great speed and pushed ahead to take the lead, where he didn’t waste any time distancing himself from his competitors. Nagl maintained the lead all the way to the checkered flag for the win in moto 1. Nagl got another great start in moto 2, but a small mistake in the first corner pushed him back to sixth place. After a great battle with Romain Febvre and Jeremy Van Horebeke, the German fought back to fifth, resulting in a third overall for the weekend.

Webb one step closer to the 250SX West Championship, Anderson claims Third in 450

The Supercross season returned to the west this past weekend in Santa Clara. Cooper Webb wasted no time advancing toward his championship bid in the 250 class.



Cooper Webb had a steady night, starting his heat race about mid pack and confidently working his way to a third place and transfer position. In the main event Webb had another mid pack start, but put his head down and began to pick off his competitors one by one. Despite Zach Osborne’s holeshot advantage, Webb reeled him in with 3 laps to go and claimed first place uncontested. The 250SX West title will be decided at the Las Vegas finale, Saturday May 7th.


Mitchell Harrison was having a stand out evening in Santa Clara, but a racing incident spoiled an otherwise stellar night. Harrison scored the hole shot in his heat race and kept up with the front contenders for a quick transfer to the 250sx main event. Harrison had another blazing fast start and comfortably slotted in behind Osborne for second place in the first few opening laps.  Unfortunately a few corners later Christian Craig made hard contact with Harrison, putting him on the ground and pinning him beneath his dirt bike, causing Harrison to fall deep into the pack and finishing 18th for the night.


Alex Martin had a bit of a struggle in Santa Clara, making an easy transfer from his heat race but finding difficulty in the 250sx main. Martin made a favorable start and was comfortably in third when slowly throughout the race several riders pushed by him and relegated Martin to a 9th place finish.



Jason Anderson came back from the break refreshed and focused on his race. In heat race 1 Anderson fought his way to the front on the first lap, and battled with Roczen to a second place finish. In the main event disaster nearly took Anderson out when Justin Brayton blind sided him in turn one. The contact was so forceful and jarring that Brayton hit the ground hard, but Anderson amazingly remained on his bike and forfeited a few positions as he rode through the aftermath. Anderson charged back through the pack, reclaiming lost positions and landing a podium finish for the evening in 3rd.


Marvin Musquin had an off-night, struggling to race ahead after a really rough crash during qualifying. Musquin finished 17th for the evening.

In the main event, Anderson put in a solid start and was in the top five where he worked his way to a podium position by lap 3. Anderson stalked Marvin Musquin for the remainder of the race, and when a bobble slowed down the frenchman, Anderson capitalized and claimed second for the evening. After officials reviewed the race, it was determined race winner Ryan Dungey had in fact jumped a section during a red-cross flag and would be penalized two positions, effectively handing over the win to Anderson.


Marvin Musquin was vexed by minor set backs most of the evening, yet bounced back for an excellent finish for the night. In his heat race Musquin went down hard and was unable to complete the race due to bike issues. He lined up again for the semi race 1 and lead the race from start to finish. In the main event Musquin rushed out of the gate to second place and chased Dungey for most of the race. On the second to last lap Musquin slid out and Anderson sped by for second, with Musquin remounting to finish third. After penalties were handed out to Dungey for his infraction Musquin was awarded second place for the evening.



Aaron Plessinger was switched on all night in Detroit. He started off with a lap by lap battle with Tonus in heat race 1, and made the transfer to the main. In the 250 main event Plessinger fired off the gate and claimed the holeshot.  He raced hard the entire moto, swapping positions and ultimately finishing second behind Malcolm Stewart.


Jeremy Martin had a difficult night from the get-go. First by having a small crash in his heat race, but still managing to work his way to a transfer position. Then in the main event, Martin found more bad luck in turn one as he and Bowers tangled bars and went down as the field raced on. Martin remounted and was charging hard through the pack when another mistake put him on the ground, which forced him into the pits to have his tweaked bike readjusted. Martin refused to throw in the towel and rejoined the race, salvaging championship points in 13th place.


The East Coast Supercross Championship headed north of the border to Canada this past weekend. Both Musquin and Martin claimed second place finishes at the Toronto round.



Jeremy Martin started his night right with an easy second place in heat race 1, but soon found trouble in the 250 main event. A chain reaction pile up heading into turn 1 collected nearly half the field, including Jeremy Martin. Martin scrambled to remount and rejoined the race well behind the field. For the remainder of the race, Martin would heroically battle his way to a second place at the checkered flag. His outstanding performance of the evening also earned him the red plate and points lead going into the next round.


Aaron Plessinger had a rough night, on the dash for the hole shot in heat race two, his front wheel got clipped and he went down hard. Plessinger headed to the LCQ and won handily. The massive pile up in the main event, also collected Plessinger, sending him to the back of the field to work his way through.  Plessinger ended up finishing 12th for the night.



Marvin Musquin charged off the gate in heat race two and finished third, for an easy transfer to the main event. In the 450 main event Musquin avoided some first lap drama and began plotting moves from his fifth place position. He diligently tailed Dungey for most of the race, and with six laps to go Dungey had a bobble and Musquin shot ahead to claim second place. Musquin raced hard and consistent to the finish, holding off Dungey to finish second for the evening.


Jason Anderson had a roller coaster of a night. Anderson had some tense racing and tight passes in his heat race, transferring to the main. He then pulled a top-10 start before getting caught up in a big pileup in the first rhythm section. Jason remounted in the back of the pack and immediately started putting in a charge. He advanced from 16th to 10th by the halfway mark and eventually finished the race in ninth.


Jeremy Martin had a stand out performance in Daytona, closely stalking and racing with Malcolm Stewart in an exciting 250SX race. Marvin Musquin also had another solid night finishing third in the 450SX main event.



Jeremy Martin kept to the front the entire night, claiming second in his heat race to transfer to the 250SX main. In the main event Martin flew out of the gate and onto Stewart’s rear tire for second place on the opening lap, and the two riders would race the majority of the race in close quarters. A few bobbles by Stewart made for some exciting laps as Martin edged closer, but on the tight single-track layout of Daytona the ultimate pass didn’t occur until the last few laps. With two laps to go, Martin made a mad dash to the front and made it stick to the checkered flag.


Aaron Plessigner remained consistent in Daytona, easily transferring from heat race 1 to the 250SX main. In the main event Plessigner had a slow start, slotting into 10th place on the opening lap. Plessinger diligently worked his way to the front and claimed 5th overall for the evening.



Marvin Musquin continues to impress with another podium finish in Daytona. Musquin handily won his heat race and had a top gate pick for the main. In the main event, Musquin had another excellent start rounding out lap 1 in third place. Musquin along with the rest of the top three charged ahead of the field, putting a remarkable ten second gap between third and fourth place. The remainder of the race maintained this running order and Musquin claimed third place with no battles or drama.


Jason Anderson was seventh at the start in his heat and could only focus on moving forward. He was able to make one pass in the last lap, for sixth, and was forced to go to the semi. He got the holeshot in the semi, led every lap, and won, earning his spot in the 450 main. He pulled fifth at the start in the main before making the move for fourth in lap four. He rode solo the rest of the night and finished the race in fourth.
