At Ironman Raceway, RJ Hampshire came into the last round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series with some momentum after scoring a few moto podium finishes in the last quarter of the series. The Geico Factory Connection Honda rider joined the series at High Point after healing up from a leg injury at the Toronto SX back in February and showed some good speed at his first couple rounds, but a few DNF’s with bike problems hurt his overall results. After putting his bike problems behind him, his results started improve as the series rolled on. We will follow RJ’s day at Ironman as he tries to finish the series on a high note.
RJ went 12-5 for 7th overall and finished the season in 11th place with missing the first three rounds of the series and 3 DNF’s because of bike problems. RJ said that his season is not over yet as he is excited to race the USGP next week at WW Ranch in his home state in front of family and friends. Then he plans on going up to Maine to MX 207 a few weeks later for the Dream 125 race that is held there every fall. After that the team will start testing the new 2018 CRF250 before RJ can start to enjoy his off season.
