Ken Roczen came to life in the last two rounds with a worst moto finish of second, but time is running out as the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship heads to Crawfordsville, Ind., Saturday, August 28 for Round 10 of the 2021 season at Ironman Raceway. Three rounds remain and Dylan Ferrandis currently holds a 39-point lead over Roczen.
In order to catch Ferrandis, Roczen will need to average a points’ gain of more than six in each of the remaining six motos, which is no easy feat against a rider who has swept the overall podium through nine rounds of 2021.
Last year, Eli Tomac took the overall victory at Ironman with a 2-1 while Marvin Musquin won Moto 1 and finished second overall. Both riders enter the weekend top-five in points and hope to make up some ground of their own.
In the 250 class, a red hot Jeremy Martin scored the 2020 overall win with a 2-1.
Now the 450 leader, Ferrandis finished second with a 1-3.
The 2021 battle for the 250 red plate is razor thin with three points separating Justin Cooper and Jett Lawrence entering Round 10 at Ironman. The championship will continue to be hotly contested. Cooper (8-2) and Lawrence (4-5) both earned top-five overall finishes on this track last year.
