250 OVERALL RACE RESULTS | 2021 HIGH POINT NATIONAL

The 250 class has made its way back to High Point Raceway after the venue was previously skipped the year prior due to Covid throwing a wrench into everyone’s plans. Now, we’re sitting at the edge of our seats once again to witness the awesome racing that continues throughout the 2021 year. If you guessed that Justin Cooper would once again be the fastest qualifier amongst the 250s, you’d be right, again. Just like in the 2021 Supercross season, the 32 remains to be dominant in qualifying, however, it is Jett Lawrence who still remains in possession of the red plate with a 10 point lead over the Star Yamaha rider. So who do you think will win the 44th National race held at High Point? Will we see our usual suspects rank in the top three or will another rider grab the overall? Find out down below as we report all the action LIVE from High Point Raceway.

250 OVERALL RACE RESULTS

Justin Cooper is extremely strong when he has the lead and a clear track in front of him.

Colt Nichols grabbed the holeshot but it would be Justin Cooper who led the second moto with first moto winner, Jalek Swoll in second place. Jett Lawrence started to the pressure on Jalek with 24 minutes remaining. Jett would become successful with the pass after doubling one of the off-camber jumps, and getting to the next turn first. Justin’s lead extended to over five seconds but Jett would begin to close the gap. At 19 minutes remaining, Garrett Marchbanks was on a mission, making the pass on Max Vohland for six place and quickly gaining ground on Carson Mumford.

The track’s conditions were night and day compared to the first moto. Now dry, loose, and slick, the riders attacked the track in an aggressive fashion. By nine minutes remaining, Garrett had made his way up to fourth place, passing Colt Nichols and Carson Mumford. Justin Cooper’s lead had extended to over 11 seconds. Justin Cooper would win the race with a massive lead. However, it was Jalek Swoll who would grab his first overall win.

What do you think the mechanics are describing to each of the Lawrence brothers?

Hunter Lawrence grabbed the holeshot and avoided the pileup that occurred in the first turn. Rain had started sprinkling on the course as Hunter Lawrence and Jalek Swoll battled for first place. Hunter Lawrence made a mistake and took an off-track excursion, crashing resulting in the course banner getting tangled in his bike. Now, Jalek Swoll led the race with Justin Cooper chasing in second. With 23 minutes remaining, Rj Hampshire pulled the trigger on the pass for second, getting around Justin Cooper. Now Rockstar Husky led the race 1-2, and it wasn’t long till Rj made his way to his teammate’s rear fender. A few laps later, Rj made the pass on his teammate, and in third place, Justin Cooper made a mistake losing several positions.

With 17 minutes remaining, Jett lost the fourth place position to Justin Cooper. After being sent all the way back to last place, Hunter had made quite the comeback sitting in 14th with 13 minutes remaining. Jo Shimoda sitting back in sixth place begun to make progress to Jett Lawrence in fifth place. A lap later, Justin Cooper began to lose positions to the other riders with supposed bike problems or lack of tearoffs. Jett made the pass on the 32 and Jo Shimoda followed suit.

Rj Hampshire crashed or faced a mechanical issue as he walked off the track with the race lead. Now Jalek Swoll led the race once again and Colt Nichols raced in second place 6 seconds behind. Jalek Swoll would win his first Moto in his career.
