The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will race Saturday at the Wick 388 for Round 5 of the 2021 schedule and NBC Sports will have all the action from Southwick, Massachusetts.
Last year, the Wick fell victim to the COVID-19 pandemic and this will be the first visit there since 2019. That year, two riders who have since graduated to the 450 class dominated in 250s with Adam Cianciarulo finishing 1-2 for the overall win and the current points leader Dylan Ferrandis finishing 3-1 for second overall.
Ferrandis is looking to extend his points lead and with three overall wins in the books in the first four rounds, he is well poised to do so.
In the 450 class, Marvin Musquin (1-2) was victorious over Zach Osborne (3-1) and Eli Tomac (2-3) the last time Pro Motocross visited Southwick.
The Wick is characterized by deep, sandy conditions and twisty turns that make this one of the more challenging courses on the circuit.
