2024 HIGH POINT MOTOCROSS | COMPLETE COVERAGE

The Pro Motocross Championship has traveled from the Dinosaur Ridge in Colorado to the Mason-Dixon Line in Pennsylvania for round four, the 2024 High Point Motocross. This weekend’s race will wrap up the opening stretch of the summer series and is the first of many motos that’ll happen on the East Coast over the next few months.

The regional shift has had a massive impact on the rider turnout, and today’s entry lists sees 94 names in the 450 Class and 82 in the 250 Class, for a grand total of 176 competitors.

We’re back on a normal schedule this weekend, with 250 Moto One slated to start around1PM, a half-hour half-time in the midafternoon, and the final laps of 450 Moto Two finishing by 5.

Here’s how riders are ranked in points going into the day.

Haiden Deegan has extended his advantage in the 250 Class and now has 144 points, Chance Hymas and Tom Vialle are tied for second with 121, Levi Kitchen is fourth with 119, Jo Shimoda fifth with 99, Jalek Swoll sixth with 93, Pierce Brown seventh with 84, Julien Beaumer eighth with 73, Ty Masterpool ninth with 69, and Joey Savatgy tenth with 60.

Hunter Lawrence has the red plate for the first time in his 450 Class career with 129 points, Chase Sexton is second with 123, Jett Lawrence third with 113, Justin Cooper fourth with 109, Aaron Plessinger fifth with 100, Jason Anderson sixth with 97, Justin Barcia eight with 95, Dylan Ferrandis eighth with 89, Malcolm Stewart ninth with 87, and Fredrik Noren tenth with 68.

Round four of the reformed WMX series was featured as part of Friday’s program at High Point. Kyleigh Stallings and Jordan Jarvis put on a show in both motos, and 1-1 results by Stallings helped her chip away at the points lead that Sophia Phelps has on the competition. The WMX riders will line up again at the Ironman National in late August.

We’ll wrap this one up with a weather report, as a sunny Friday afternoon ended with a soaking rain that put lots of moisture into the soil. The track crew at the Country Club of motocross has plenty of experience with this sort of weather, and as you’ll hear in the interview with Davey Coombs, they have a plan to seal, plow, and rip the surface so it’s ready for race day.

Saturday’s temperatures should be ideal, with clear skies and a high of 77 degrees.
