DiFrancesco to Contest Select Rounds, Make Pro Debut at RedBud
Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki announces that Ryder DiFrancesco is set to make his Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship debut at the RedBud National on July 2nd. The rising Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green™ star will compete in the 250 Class at RedBud and Spring Creek before returning to the Monster Energy AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta’s Lynn’s, where he is an eight-time champion at the Ranch. Following the Loretta Lynn’s National, DiFrancesco will rejoin the Pro Motocross Championship for the final four rounds of the 2022 season.
After an outstanding year of amateur motocross racing, having won both 2021 MX Sports Pro Racing Scouting Moto Combines and four of the five 2022 SX Futures events, DiFrancesco looks toward this next step in his career.
“I’m really fired up to be racing with the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team at the pro level in these upcoming weeks. It has been a dream of mine to race for Mitch Payton’s team for a long time, so this is a huge step and I’ve put in a lot of work to be prepared for it. I’m ready to go out there and give it my best effort each weekend with the main goal of learning and improving every time I hit the track.” – Ryder DiFrancesco
