2024 Southwick Motocross | Pre-Race News Break



The first break of the summer is behind us, and the Pro Motocross Championship has reconvened for round five, the 2024 Southwick Motocross. The sand pit behind American Legion Post 338 has been stop of the series for decades, and this weekend’s motos will be the 43rd visit for the 450 Class and the 38th for the 250 Class.

A massive storm rolled through southern Massachusetts last week, and as you’ll hear from track operator Keith Johnson later in the video, it did significant damage. The days since have been a rush, and with help from event title sponsor Crestview Construction, the crew was able to haul in loads of sand to replace what was washed away from the layout and have the property ready for a crowd that will come from all parts of the northeast.

We’re in for an ideal day, as cloudy skies, a minor chance of rain, and steady winds should top the temperature out at 80 degrees.

The AMA entry lists are at capacity with 90 riders signed up for the 250 Class and 91 in the 450 Class, a turnout that includes the usual full-time contenders, dozens of quick NESC locals, a few visiting Europeans and Australians, and new Star Racing recruit Max Anstie.

Here’s how the top-ten riders are ranked in both divisions ahead of the weekend.

Haiden Deegan has extended his advantage in the 250 Class and now has 191 points, Chance Hymas is second with 159, Tom Vialle third with 153, Levi Kitchen fourth with 144, Jo Shimoda fifth with 136, Ty Masterpool and Jalek Swoll are split for sixth at 116, Pierce Brown is eighth with 109, Julien Beaumer ninth with 103, and Jordon Smith is tenth with 82.

Hunter Lawrence continues to hold the top spot in the 450 Class with 171 points, Chase Sexton is second with 165, Jett Lawrence third with 163, Justin Cooper fourth with 143, Aaron Plessinger fifth with 134, Jason Anderson sixth with 130, Justin Barcia seventh with 121, Dylan Ferrandis eighth with 120, Malcolm Stewart ninth with 113, and Fredrik Noren is tenth with 82.
