Congratulations to Feld Motorsports on a Successful Supercross Season
MORGANTOWN, WV – May 7, 2013 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – MX Sports Pro Racing and Alli Sports, a division of the NBC Sports Group, organizers of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, wish to congratulate Feld Motorsports on a successful 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season. Following the crowning of three-time supercross champion Ryan Villopoto last week, two more athletes emerged victorious as champions to complete a historic season, which came to an exciting conclusion Saturday night in Las Vegas with main events for the Eastern and Western Regional 250SX divisions.
GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn secured the first Eastern Regional 250SX Class Championship of his career with a podium finish at Saturday’s season finale. Then Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen finished second to defending champ Eli Tomac in their showdown, allowing him to capture the first Western Regional 250SX Championship of his career, as well as the first-ever supercross title for KTM as a brand.
MX Sports would also like to congratulate Ken Roczen and Red Bull KTM on adding a victory in the annual Dave Coombs Sr. East/West Shootout, which took place following the East and West main events in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
“For both Wil Hahn and Ken Roczen this marked their first titles in Monster Energy AMA Supercross, which means they’ve put in years of hard work and dedication to reach this point of their careers, and now it’s paying off,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “Both the East and West titles came down to the very last lap of their respective finals, which is a testament not only to Wil and Ken, but also the athletes they were competing against, including Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin in the East and GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac in the West.”
All of these athletes will now compete for the 250 Class title in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, which begins on May 18 with the Red Bull Hangtown Motocross Classic in Sacramento, Calif.
“We look forward to seeing these riders continue their respective rivalries all summer long, as well as Ryan Villopoto’s return to the series after last year’s injury hiatus,” Coombs added. “Ryan will have his work cut out for him in getting the #1 plate back from Ryan Dungey. It should be an excellent summer of racing for both divisions.”
