2018 THUNDER VALLEY NATIONAL | 250 OVERALL RACE RESULTS (UPDATED)

In the first 250 moto here in Thunder Valley, things were shaken up. Justin Cooper jumped to the early lead followed by Joey Savatgy. Around the 15 minute mark, Joey Savatgy made the move on Cooper and began to pull away. Coming into the closing laps, Joey Savatgy blew his Pro Circuit engine aboard his KX250F.  He was scored in 34th place. Bad luck for the PC team.

In Moto 2, things were dramatically different due to Joey Savatgy’s poor start leaving top guys like Zach Osborne, Gage Scherer and Justin Hill in the pileup. But, the Martin brothers pulled away quick, and battled the whole way. Here’s how things went down.

 Jeremy Martin pressured Alex for the entire length of 250 moto two. But he found an opening and scored big time with a win. His final score was 2-1.

He might have lost the battle, but Alex Martin rode incredible. He will definitely be a contender this season. His final score was 3-2 for a second overall.

The second moto didn’t go Justin Cooper’s way, but a third place on the overall podium with a 1-8 score isn’t bad.
