Guthrie, Oklahoma. May 14, 2017 – The second annual Lucas Oil JuniorMotoX, presented by Monster Energy had a huge increase in the number of participants gunning for wins in 24 classes inside the Lazy E Arena. The track received rave reviews again with the amazing dirt providing excellent traction and multiple lines. The Lucas Oil Racing TV team produced a live webcast of the event and will also air a one hour show in the coming months. The “pro” level TV package is on par with professional racing as this is the same team that produces the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross television broadcast.
“After more than 25,000 laps turned over the three days of practice and racing, we were treated to some very exciting racing and no serious injuries,” said Eric Peronnard, the co-creator of the JuniorMotoX. “It is very gratifying to have the riders, families and sponsors of this event provide such positive feedback but we also learned a lot to make it even better next year. And it was also special to witness Ty Masterpool winning the Jesse Cup, the race that was created to honor his brother’s memory.”
The 2017 JuniorMotoX included 23 classes and one special class to conclude the event named the Jesse Cup. The top twelve finishers in each of the two Supermini classes were invited to compete in the final race of the evening to honor the late Jesse Masterpool. In a storybook ending, Ty Masterpool, Jesse’s younger brother took the win in the Jesse Cup in addition to a win in the Supermini 2 (13-16) class.
Other notable class winners included Dax Bennick, Ryder DiFrancesco, Seth Denis, Jett Reynolds, Carter Halpain, Jordan Jarvis, Joshua Varize, Brock Papi, Katie Benson and Ramyller Alves.
KTM backed Dax Bennick took two class wins inside the Lazy E Arena.
