2024 INDIANAPOLIS SUPERCROSS PRE-RACE REPORT: INJURED LIST, TV SCHEDULE & MORE

Racing is heading to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. This weekend is a triple crown event and  Jett Lawrence is coming into it with a thirteen-point lead over Cooper Webb and a twenty-point lead over Chase Sexton, who sits in third. Lawrence has been building momentum since Daytona and has spoken about how he’s changed his mindset going into the rest of the season’s rounds. In the 250 class, the points are tighter. Tom Vialle leads, coming off his second win last weekend in Birmingham, and carries a one-point lead over Cameron McAdoo. In third is Pierce Brown, who is five points out of the lead. Lucas Oil Stadium is a closed-off arena, and riders will not have to worry about the weather this coming weekend.

2024 INDIANAPOLIS  SUPERCROSS // FULL COVERAGE


TOUGH TO BEAT

Jett Lawrence seems to have found his stride over the past couple of weekends of racing and is looking to carry that momentum into Indianapolis. Cooper Webb has been putting in a great effort to stop Lawrence’s dominance, but Jett Lawrence is a tough racer to beat. It seems that if Lawrence can keep off the ground, he has the ability to be on top. This weekend, Jett Lawrence looks to extend his points lead even further, helping to solidify his position in first place.

CONSISTENT EACH WEEK

Cameron McAdoo has been very consistent this season, except for the mishap at the start of the season in Detroit. He currently sits in second overall in the series, only one point behind the leader. Although he hasn’t won a race this season, McAdoo has consistently finished second overall, which has kept him in the hunt for the championship. This weekend, Cameron McAdoo has the opportunity to take over the points lead if he can secure a win, but it will not be easy. Tom Vialle has been very quick in the past couple of weeks, as well as McAdoo’s teammate, Seth Hammaker.

CODE OF CONDUCT

Last weekend, Haiden Deegan was visibly frustrated after colliding with Seth Hammaker at the start of the first heat. He let his emotions show and even took it back to the pits after the race, where he walked over to the Kawasaki rig to try and have a talk with Seth Hammaker. Deegan then struggled through the rest of the evening, as he may have been mentally affected by what happened earlier in the night. However, Deegan is a warrior, and it’s expected that he has put the race in Birmingham behind him and is looking forward to Indianapolis. Although his results did not show it last weekend, his speed remains unchanged, and Haiden Deegan has just as good a chance to win this weekend as any other rider on the track.

INJURED LIST:

HUNTER LAWRENCE – SCAPULA

Following double fifth-place finishes at Glendale and Arlington, Hunter Lawrence crashed out of the Daytona Supercross last Saturday and unfortunately will not lineup tomorrow in Birmingham, Alabama.

Honda Racing stated: “Unfortunately,  Hunter Lawrence will miss this round with a small fracture to his left scapula, incurred in a crash during last weekend’s main event. Hunter and the team are still awaiting a prognosis from doctors, but he is focused on returning as quickly as possible.”

JUSTIN HILL – RIBS 

Justin Hill had a scary crash in Daytona where his bike stalled in between one of the rhythm sections and Freddie Noren landed on him. He posted on Instagram that he had broken some ribs and some irregularities in his vertebrae and that he would be receiving more tests. It is uncertain of his return at this time

DEAN WILSON – SCAPULA

Dean Wilson experienced a hard crash at the Daytona Supercross, unfortunately resulting in a broken scapula in his shoulder. Despite the setback, Dean expressed his determination to recover and make it to the last few rounds of Supercross. This news comes as a significant blow for Dean, especially considering that this season marks his farewell to Supercross.

GUILLEM FARRES – FEMUR

Guillem suffered a broken femur while training during the week leading up to the Daytona Supercross, he will be out for the foreseeable future.

Team Manager Nathan Ramsey states: “Guillem is one of the most liked riders in the industry that I have ever worked with. I am completely gutted that he had an unfortunate crash while testing at the Baker’s Factory. He is not only tough, but he is strong, and we will support him in every way to get him back at the races doing what he loves.”

AUSTIN FORKNER – BACK & SHOULDER

Austin had one of the scarier crashes we’ve seen in a while where he came up short entering a rhythm section which knocked his hand off the bars and sent him flying onto the infield concrete. As a result, he fractured his L3-L4 in his spine as well as a fractured scapula. Fortunately, his injuries did not require surgery, and is expected to make a full recovery. We are unsure of his expected return, but it will not be for the rest of the Supercross season.

ENZO LOPES – FOREARM

Enzo Lopes 2024 YamahaEnzo Lopes underwent “Arm Pump” surgery on his forearms, which is claimed to help improve blood flow to the arms. This type of surgery usually takes a few weeks to recover from but in Enzo’s case, it has been lingering over the last couple of months.

Enzo Lopes stated: “Riding for Star Racing comes with a lot of expectations, especially after my momentum from last season. Unfortunately, the cards we were dealt with this off-season were out of our control, and with that, we agreed on missing Round 1 so that I can be back to 100% soon. I am super bummed, but I know in the long run this will be the best decision for me and also the team.”

JETT REYNOLDS – SHOULDER (OUT FOR SEASON)

Jett Reynolds ClubMxJett Reynolds suffered an AC separation to his shoulder in qualifying at Detroit. Then, while training this week, he crashed again. 

ClubMX updated Jett’s recovery status: “Jett is back in California recovering from his shoulder surgery and should be starting physical therapy soon. Until then, he has maintained a workout schedule for the rest of his body to stay ready when he returns to racing. No date has been set at this point.”

CHRISTIAN CRAIG – ELBOW

Christian Craig posted on Instagram that he had been riding with elbow pain throughout the majority of the season. He said that this pain has been progressively increasing. He will be getting some tests done in the upcoming week to diagnose the injury. We are unsure if he will be on track in Birmingham. 

Christian Craig stated: “Bummed to say I will be missing the race today in Dallas. I’ve been dealing with elbow pain that’s progressively getting worse since the season started. I’ve tried to push through it but unfortunately, it’s to the point where I can’t hang on after a few laps. Going to get some scans done and see what’s going on.”

EVAN FERRY – SHOULDER

Evan Ferry had a crash during press day for the Arlington Supercross causing an injury to his shoulder, and will sit out from racing. It is not clear the extent of the injury or how long before he returns to racing. 

Last weekend, Haiden Deegan was visibly frustrated after colliding with Seth Hammaker at the start of the first heat. He let his emotions show and even took it back to the pits after the race, where he walked over to the Kawasaki rig to try and have a talk with Seth Hammaker. Deegan then struggled through the rest of the evening, as he may have been mentally affected by what happened earlier in the night. However, Deegan is a warrior, and it’s expected that he has put the race in Birmingham behind him and is looking forward to Indianapolis.

2024 INDIANAPOLIS RACE DAY SCHEDULE

Inside the stadium this weekend, where weather will not play a factor, the Indianapolis Supercross is shaping up to be a great race. The track features two challenging rhythm sections and a larger triple jump. Sand has been added back in this weekend, along with whoops, which we assume will return to the standard sets seen previously in the season, as last week they were hardly challenging at all. Also noteworthy is a small off-camber wall jump, similar to the one seen at Anaheim 1, which caused difficulties for multiple riders.

Chase Sexton did salvage a few points but not the result he needed to put a charge at Jett Lawrence who has momentum on his side now and is going to be very tough to beat in the remainder of the season.

250SX EAST CHAMPIONSHIP POINT STANDINGS

What a race in the 250 East class. Tom Vialle was able to grab his second race win of the year followed by Cameron McAdoo and Seth Hammaker. Seth Hammaker had come from the LCQ so he rebounded nicely salvaging some valuable points. Haiden Deegan struggled as he also went to the LCQ and did not get the start he needed in the main. Unfortunately for Max Anstie, he was not able to finish this evening as he had engine issues and the bike failed on the track.
