Highlights: KTM RedBud National

Saturday, July 2, 2022 | 9:30 PM

Perfect weather conditions at Michigan's RedBud MX brought out the best in the stars of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, at the fifth round of the 50th anniversary season. The KTM RedBud National celebrated America's Independence Day during the Fourth of July weekend and featured some of the biggest surprises of the season in both the 250 and 450 Classes.

450 Class

For the second consecutive week, Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing's Eli Tomac was the man to beat, sweeping both motos convincingly for his 29th career victory. He became the first repeat winner of the season in the 450 Class. Championship point leader Chase Sexton put in an inspiring performance for both motos to come through the field to a pair of second-place finishes for second overall. Sexton continues to lead the championship standings by seven points over Tomac.

250 Class

The opening moto looked as if it was going to be another Lawrence brothers showdown for Team Honda HRC until Jett Lawrence suffered heartbreak with a mechanical failure that forced him to withdraw from the moto. This left the door wide open for Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Jo Shimoda to have a breakthrough ride, including a pass on Hunter Lawrence for the moto win. The second moto was all Jett as he returned on a mission to take the moto win over his brother Hunter. Despite an opening lap incident, Shimoda clawed his way from the back of the field to third, which was enough to capture his first career victory. He became the first Japanese rider to stand atop the top step of the podium in the championship.
