Orlando Supercross 7 & 8

February 13, 2021 and February 20, 2021

As the 2021 Supercross Season made its way to Florida, a massive storm was hitting almost every state in the U.S.  In the days leading up to the first Orlando round the Florida skies opened and poured down rain; our first threat of a mudder all season.  Luckily, the Dirt Werks crew had the track covered in time and were able to filter away the access water keeping the track mostly dry and race day ready.

Orlando #1 (round 6): This was the last 250SX East Coast Race until the series heads to SLC in April and Kevin Moranz came out ready to FLY.  Qualifying 14th during the day, Moranz made his way into heat #1 where he secured another top finish (4th place).  Kevin is proving he deserves a place in the 250SX Main Events and this week he secured a career best 7th place finish.  In typical Kevin Moranz fashion, he is not going to simply go back to a normal training regime, instead, he is going to stay in racing condition by competing in the upcoming 450SX rounds. 

Orlando #2 (round 7): Orlando marks the first residency of the season where two difference 250SX Coasts are hosted back to back.  Round #2 launched the 250SX West Coast Series with a stacked class of 60 riders coming out to make their mark.  For the first time this year, the TPJ Racing Team Truck was full; 4 new riders joined the Kevin Moranz in the ranks.

Matt Hubert, Mason Wharton, Corbin Hayes and Blaine Silveira each chose to race in the West Coast Series in the 250SX class.  Each rider had some bad luck and an unfortunate series of events kept each of them on the sidelines during the night program.  They are all eager to arrive at Daytona ready to show their speed and determination.

 Thank you to our sponsors for the continued support of Team TPJ Racing.

Indy Supercross 4,5,6

Indianapolis Supercross’ January 30 – February 6, 2021

Rounds 4, 5 and 6 of the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross series took up residency at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN.  The weather outside was cold and snowy, but inside the stadium racing continued to heat up.

Indy #1 (round 4): Kevin came into the Indy SX rounds determined to build on his Houston Successes and he did just that.  In his heat race he fought to the finish for a 5th overall.  The Main Event did not go as planned and some crashes had him settle in for a 15th place finish.

Indy #2 (round 5): Even tough the tracks change during the stadium residency; it did not slow Moranz down.  He lined up for Heat #1 and was able to hold a top position even with multiple crashes happening around him.  He avoided hitting the dirt and finished 3rd.  Launching off the gate for the Main Event Moranz was mid-pack and battled hard for the 15 minutes plus 2 laps to secure a 10th place finish.

Indy #3 (round 6): Another track change, this time featuring the rare right hand first turn; this proved to do well for Kevin.  He qualified 16th (a best in Indy) and went on to place 4th in his Heat.  The Main Event at round 6 was more challenging with some crashes and having to wrestle through the pack, ultimately finishing 14th.

Kevin currently sits in 13th place in the 250SX East Coast Series with 54 total points.  The upcoming round in Orlando, FL will be Kevin’s chance to gain crucial series points. East Coast series races will return on April 24 in Salt Lake City, UT.

 Thank you to our sponsors for the continued support of Team TPJ Racing.  We are excited to be heading to Orlando, FL. for the next 2 rounds and having some additional riders present to represent our great sponsors.

Houston Supercross 1,2,3

The historic 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season opened with three rounds in the NRG Stadium in Houston, Tx. This season marks the first time in over 25 years that Supercross did not debut in Southern California, and the first time ever including Tuesday races. 

Kevin Moranz #85 was the sole TPJ Racing team rider in Houston competing in the 250SX East Coast Series.

Houston #1: Kevin Moranz came into H1 with a contagious enthusiasm and a desire to prove he has what it takes to compete on the world’s biggest stage with the fastest riders around.  He continued to gain speed throughout the day and in his heat race and went on to secured a 10th place finish in the main.  A top 10 finish is phenomenal but for Kevin this is just the start.

Houston #2: Kevin qualified well during the day (16th place) but missed transferring to the main by one position.  In the LCQ he had one of the first bikes to cross the Holeshot line.  He was leading until a slight mishap and crash causes him to fall back.  Kevin missed the night show at H2 but did not let that slow him down going into round 3.

Houston #3: If you did not know who Kevin Moranz was yet, you certainly did after his performance at H3.  Once again, he missed a direct transfer into the Main Event by 1 position.  He lined up for the LCQ, and this time when he took the lead, he refused to let it go.  Kevin won the LCQ and went on to secure a 9th place finish in the Main Event! 

Team TPJ Racing would like to thank all of our sponsors for their continued support.

2020 Outdoors

2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship

Covid-19 and the year 2020; a time we will not soon forget.  This year has completely shaken the entire world and caused quite a bit of chaos, but resilient as we are, we prevail.  The 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is set to start on August 15th at the historic Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Tennessee.  This is the first time since 2009 that the Outdoor Nationals have not kicked off at Hangtown MX in California.  The entire TPJ Racing team is ready to prove that they have not waisted the time in quarantine but rather used it to hone in their skills so they can be even better, faster and stronger come the first gate drop.

Saturday August 15, 2020 will have been 55 days since our Professional Athletes have lineup at a race.   During a normal race year, our riders have about 10 days between Supercross and Motocross.  While the time off has been appreciated by many, we are all ready to get back to racing.  This year’s shortened, late starting season will be one for the history books and we are excited to be a part of it!

Here’s the complete 2020 Schedule
