Team Honda HRC’s Chase Sexton has qualified fastest in 450MX at round six of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross at Millville, as Alex Martin (JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki) topped 250MX.

Following a disappointing RedBud 2, Sexton rebounded by leading this morning at Spring Creek with a benchmark of 2m02.557s ahead of Adam Cianciarulo (Monster Energy Kawasaki).

While it was the pair of rookies at the front, defending champion Eli Tomac (Monster Energy Kawasaki) was looming in third, followed by Blake Baggett (Rocky Mountain ATV/MC KTM WPS) and points-leader Zach Osborne (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna) filled the top five.

In 250MX, local standout Alex Martin continued his impressive run of form by setting the pace with a 2m03.021s, marginally ahead of Justin Cooper (Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha).

Cooper’s teammate Dylan Ferrandis (Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha) was third overall, directly in front of title rival Jeremy Martin (Geico Honda), with Brandon Hartranft (TLD Red Bull KTM) fifth.

On his professional outdoor debut this weekend with Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha, Jarrett Frye made an early impression with seventh position in qualifying behind teammate Shane McElrath.
