2023 Ironman Motocross | Qualifying Report & Times


Presented by O’Neal

And we’re here, the 2023 Pro Motocross Championship has reached it’s series finale, as round eleven is underway in the state of Indiana. Riders spent Saturday morning logging laps during qualifying at the 2023 Ironman Motocross. For the most part, the fast course helped produce incredibly close lap times in both classes. Just fractions of a second split the front-runners in the 250MX and 450MX Class on the qualifying sheets, which ratcheted up the anticipation for today’s racing even more. Here’s a look at the fastest lap times and results…

Levi Kitchen laid down a fast lap when it counted, as he logged the fastest lap time in the opening session of timed-qualifying – the faster practice. The Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha rider’s 1:49.119 was over half a second faster than the next best lap time in the 250MX class.

Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha teammate Haiden Deegan was next on the time sheets, as he clicked off a 1:49.821 in the first session of timed-qualifying to claim second place overall while the track was quick. 

Seth Hammaker was the final rider to dip below a 1:50 lap time in the 250MX class. The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki racer laid down a 1:49.982 in the first session of riding and, with that, took third place overall. 

Late in the final session of timed-qualifying, Jett Lawrence laid down a blistering fast 1:46.131 and jumped into pole position. The 2023 Pro Motocross 450MX Champion’s lap time was over a full second faster than the next best time. 

Team Honda HRC teammate Chase Sexton followed in second place with a 1:47.163, which he logged early in the second session of qualifying. Though, Sexton was the fastest rider in the opening session of timed-qualifying. 

Dylan Ferrandis was next on the time sheets, as the Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha rider logged a 1:49.211 on the final session of timed-qualifying to jump Jason Anderson on results.
