Plessinger had a decent result in his Heat race, crossing the line behind his teammate in sixth. In the Main Event, he got off to a bad start and got jammed up behind a bunch of guys going into turn one. Sitting back in 16th, the 2018 Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250SX West Champion got to work and steadily moved his way through the field. In the final moments of the race, he had worked his way into the top 10, ultimately advancing to ninth after his teammate’s crash.
Barcia got off to a much better start in 10th, but still had his work cut out for him in a stacked 450 class. Undeterred, he put his head down and was able to advance to eighth before the halfway mark, but fell back to ninth a few laps later. In his effort to keep pushing for a better result as time started running out, Barcia had a crash in whoops. He tried to rejoin, but the bike was unable to continue after the big get off.
The team returns for more action at Rice-Eccles Stadium this Sunday, June 14, for Round 15 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship.
