After a brief interval from racing, the TPJ Racing team is excited to be back for the 2021 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. Joining the ranks this season are Matt Hubert in the 450MX class and Derek Kelley in the 250MX class. Derek, who is new to the TPJ Racing team is excited to be on board and looks forward to a successful Outdoors season.
Fox Raceway in Pala, CA hosted round 1 of the series. Derek Kelley suffered a crash 2 days prior to the race during practice and was unable to attend. Matt Hubert qualified just outside of the top 40, but a DNF from another rider during Moto 1 allotted him a spot in Moto 2. Hubert was riding well until a slight error caused him to crash and DNF his moto.
Thunder Valley in Lakewood, CO was the Mile High host for round 2. Matt Hubert sat out this round to heal up from the previous weeks crash. Derek Kelley road well qualifying 35th overall. Kelley had a phenomenal first race leaving with a 20th overall by way of a 17th and 20th in his Motos respectively.
Kelley and Hubert had a rough start to the season, but the upcoming weekend off will provide a much-needed reset. Heading into round 3 at High Point Raceway in Mt. Morris, PA, the entire TPJ Racing team is excited to have two healthy riders on site to make their mark on the 2021 season. The goal is to qualify then work towards dual top 20 finishes. We hope to see you there.
