HIGH POINT NATIONAL MOTOCROSS HIGHLIGHTS: WATCH IT IN UNDER 6 MINUTES

There were lots of motocross highlights at Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania, this past Saturday. First, Eli Tomac won the 450 class with a 2-1 over Chase Sexton’s 1-2. Tomac became the fourth different rider to win in the 450 class this season (Tomac, Sexton, Anderson and Roczen). Second, Jett Lawrence pulled his fourth straight 250 motocross National win out of the bag with determined rides, which, in the second 250 moto came down to Jett versus his brother Hunter for overall victory. Jett denied his brother the victory with a late race pass in moto two. Jett went 2-1 and Hunter went 1-2. Third, Ryan Dungey was amazing at Mt. Morris. Ryan was about to get his first 450 podium after a five-year lay-off, but when KTM teammate Aaron Plessinger hurt his leg and pulled off the track late in the second moto, that allowed Jason Anderson, who had been behind Plessinger, to gain one place and grab the podium away from Dungey, who was now fourth (which became a fifth when Ken Roczen slipped by Ryan on the last lap). Fourth, Tony Cairoli’s American adventure is over. Originally, scheduled for only two races, and then extended to four races, Cairoli hurt his previously injured right knee in the first moto and pulled off, but he showed back up for the second moto, but the pain was too much. Arrivederci, Antonio! We loved having you here. Fifth, Joey Savatgy, Garrett Marchbanks and Shane McElrath all made the top ten in the 450 class at Mt. Morris. Next week is a week off before the July 4th celebration on July 2 at Red Bud.
