Lucas Oil Riders Podium at Loretta's Lynn's Amateur National Motocross
The Rocky Mountain Amateur National Motocross Championship presented by Lucas Oil brought its triumphs and challenges once more last week at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN. Lucas Oil welcomed all 1,500 qualifiers to the Ranch with $50 Lucas Cash for a total of $75K in contingency. Congratulations to all the Lucas Legion athletes who competed against the best in the nation at the Ranch! All Lucas Legion athletes will receive contingency based on performance.
Lucas Oil spent the week giving away product for donations to Veteran MX Foundation, an organization dedicated to empowering veterans struggling with the physical and mental scars of service through motocross.
By the end of the week, riders, families, and moto fans took home every last bottle of Lucas Oil Product onsite, resulting in a $1,600 donation to the Vet MX Foundation.
Always there for a good time, Lucas Oil rider Talon Hawkins held his own against the tough competition in the Supermini 2 class, placing fourth in the first two motos. A setback in the final moto bumped him back to seventh overall on his #71 Husqvarna. Hawkins came back from a tough first moto in Supermini 1 to place fifth in motos 2 and 3 for a 12th place overall (photo: Christian Munoz).
Great starts and tenacity kept Lucas Oil rider Tyler Uenaka on the podium all week. Two bronzes and a gold in 250 C Limited landed him a second place overall finish in that class and he earned another second place overall finish in 250 C on his #52 Husqvarna.
Lucas Oil rider Jazzmyn Canfield ran solid motos, getting holeshots and staying ahead of the pack with the fastest lap times in the Girls 11-16 class. She won her last moto, but after losing two places in the first moto she barely missed the Championship, taking second overall. Canfield ran a consistent second place finish in all three motos in the Women’s 12+ Amateur class for another second place overall (photo: Derek Garcia).
