Dylan Ferrandis enters Fox Raceway in Pala, Calif., for Round 11 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship with a 50-point lead over Ken Roczen, the maximum number of points a rider can earn in a round.

If he leaves with that same advantage, he will clinch the title with one round remaining since he would have the benefit of a tiebreaker if needed in the season finale at Hangtown in Rancho Cordova, Calif.

In the last two rounds, neither Roczen nor third-place Eli Tomac have been able to make up any points on Ferrandis since he matched both riders with first- and second-place moto finishes each time.

Last year, Roczen was not part of the series, but teammate Chase Sexton took the overall victory at Fox with a 3-1. Tomac finished second with a 1-4.

In the 250 class, Jett Lawrence scored the overall win with a 1-2. He hopes to keep his momentum alive after snatching the red plate from Justin Cooper last week at Ironman Raceway.

Cooper finished 12th overall in this race last year after finishing the first moto third. He failed to earn any points in the second race. But the points’ gap between the two 250 contenders is manageable at 11 points.

Santino Ferrucci will return to full-time racing in the NTT IndyCar Series next season, joining AJ Foyt Racing.

Ferrucci had made eight IndyCar starts with three teams since his last full-time season in 2020 while also racing part time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this year.

He will drive the storied No. 14 Dallara-Chevrolet for four-time Indy 500 winner A.J. Foyt’s team, which will field the car from its Waller, Texas headquarters.

“It’s incredibly exciting to be back in the INDYCAR Series full time,” Ferrucci said in a team release. “Being a part-time driver over the last two years has been hard for me, personally. I’m a race car driver, and I want to compete. Working with different teams has been exciting, and I’m proud that no matter which car I’ve raced, I’ve always shown speed and consistency. I couldn’t be more excited to join AJ Foyt Racing in the 14 Chevy. I can’t wait to make the best of it.”

Ferrucci, 24, had finished a career-best fourth in IndyCar four times, including the 104th Indy 500 in 2020. He was the 2019 Indy 500 rookie of the year with a sixth.

In nine Xfinity starts since 2021, Ferrucci has a career-best finish of 13th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

“I am thrilled to welcome Santino to the team,” Larry Foyt said in a release. “He’s shown a knack for getting toward the front of the field, and I think he is a racer who moves forward on race day. A.J. sees the fire in him and has enjoyed their meetings together. I think Santino’s experience will help his rookie teammate as well, so he is a great addition to our roster.”

Ferrucci will be teamed at AJ Foyt Racing with Benjamin Pedersen, who finished fifth in the 2022 Indy Lights standings. The team has yet to specify the number for Pedersen’s entry, which will be fielded out of its Indianapolis race shop.

Foyt’s two full-time drivers last season were Dalton Kellett and Kyle Kirkwood, who is moving to Andretti Autosport.
