After the 2018 Indianapolis Supercross, the 250 riders sat down to talk about the nights events—Jeremy Martin’s explained why he jumped the Red Cross flags; Plessinger and Osborne discussed their first turn woes (and why Adam Cianciarulo was to blame); Adam Cianciarulo provided straight forward, honest and funny answers and finally, they all talked about why the 250 East/West series should be turned into one unified 250 Supercross Championship—where they would race against each other at every round. They think it would be better for the fans, provide a more competitive series and, given that many times their races are better than the 450 races, put them on an even par with the 450 guys.
As it is now, th 250East/West series is not a National Championship series. They are regional championships (with limits on who can race the class, only half of the competition at any given race and a convoluted system of throwing riders out of the class). If the 250 East/West was eliminated and turned into an official AMA 250 Supercross Championship the fans would get to see every major 250 star at every event — as it is now, except for the Indy and Las Vegas 250 Shootouts, the East Coast fans never see any of the West racers and vice versa.
