HOW TO WATCH: Guaranteed Rate Ironman National

Guaranteed Rate Ironman National (678)

A Full Day of Live Racing on Deck in Indiana on both MAVTV and NBCSN

MORGANTOWN, WV – August 27, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – In the shadow of the motorsports mecca of Indianapolis sits Crawfordsville, Indiana’s Ironman Raceway, which in less than a decade has become one of American motocross’ most high profile venues. This Saturday, August 28, it will once again serve a pivotal role in the quest to crown a pair of champions as the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship heads to the Hoosier State for the 10th round of the 2021 season. The track is an anomaly in the flat landscape of the midwest, with dramatic elevation changes and an undulating terrain that makes for incredible racing.

One week ago, the 450 Class’ two title combatants did battle in one of the most competitive races of the season as Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Dylan Ferrandis and Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen traded moto wins and finished tied atop the overall classification. As a result, no points were gained in their season-long rivalry, which worked in the favor of Ferrandis, who will look to maintain his comfortable 39-point advantage with just six motos remaining.

On the flip side, the 250 Class title fight is closer than ever as Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Justin Cooper and Team Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence continued to trade momentum. While both riders were bested by Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Jeremy Martin for the third time this season, Lawrence was able to close to within three points of Cooper to set the stage for what is poised to be a dramatic showdown to the division crown.

In the United States, a full slate of live broadcast coverage is on deck from Ironman, beginning with a live telecast of the first motos on MAVTV Motorsports Network, followed by a live telecast of the second motos on NBC Sports Network. Additionally, all the action, including exclusive coverage of qualifying, can also be streamed live on Peacock. Internationally, fans in more than 50 countries and territories can watch via NBC Sports Gold and through linear distribution partners.
