JEREMY MARTIN ENDS SUPERCROSS SEASON DUE TO POINTING OUT OF 250 CLASS
WITHOUT A 450 RIDE FOR 2021 JEREMY MARTIN ENDS HIS SUPERCROSS SEASON DUE TO POINTING OUT OF 250 CLASS
Jeremy Martin will not race tomorrow in Salt Lake City for the 13th round of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series due to the possibility of pointing out the of 250 class. Why doesn’t he want to point out? Because he doesn’t have a 450 ride set in stone. Jeremy was supposed to have a 450 ride ready for him in 2021, but when he got hurt at the Muddy Creek National in 2018, it threw a wrench in the plan. Now, at 27 years old, Jeremy will need to put together some great rides in order to get notice from the 450 teams for 2021. Below is what Jeremy had to say on his Instagram account.

Repost from @fchonda Unfortunately my season has come to an end for supercross in 2020. I’ve given it a lot of thought about how to publicly announce not racing the last three races of sx this year. Instead of covering it up with an injury The team and I decided to be completely honest about my current situation. I’ve reached the eligibility limit for points in the 250sx class, and any additional points would force me into the 450 class for 2021. There isn’t any opportunities nor openings for me in 2021 for the 450 class. Geico Honda doesn’t campaign the 450sx class. I haven’t won a race yet this year and feel that before making the step to the premier class I need an additional year to improve my performance and health in the quest to earn a factory 450 ride for 2022. I’m 27 years old and I’d love to be in the 450 class racing but sometimes you have to take the longer path, which right now is licking my wounds and keep rebuilding myself in supercross so I can win races and championships for Geico Honda next year!
