The 2021 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will once again consist of a 12-round season to crown a pair of AMA National Champions across two classes of competition. In the 450 Class, the world’s most high profile riders will look to capture the Edison Dye Cup, where Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Zach Osborne serves as defending champion. In the 250 Class, a wide open field of both young and experienced talent will converge to pursue the vacant Gary Jones Cup, led by former champion and Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing rider Jeremy Martin and past winners like Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Justin Cooper, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Austin Forkner, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s RJ Hampshire, and Team Honda HRC’s Jett Lawrence.
Tickets to additional rounds of the 2021 season will be announced in the coming weeks.
