Honda’s Chance Hymas is set to make his Lucas Oil Pro Motocross debut this Saturday at Fox Raceway’s finals after a commanding Scouting Moto Combine performance at Ironman.

Hymas, 17, was expected to compete in the last four rounds of 2022 250MX but delayed his maiden professional competitive outing after a challenging AMA Amateur National Championship at Loretta Lynn Ranch early in August.

The SX Futures champion returned to form in Crawfordsville, qualifying fastest and taking both Scouting Moto Combine victories. A post-race press release from Team Honda HRC revealed that Hymas plans to make his pro debut this Saturday.

“The Ironman round featured a Scouting Moto Combine competition for top amateur riders, and Honda‚Äôs Chance Hymas qualified on top and swept both moto wins,” the press release read. “The Idaho native is planning to make his pro debut in the 250 class during the AMA Pro Motocross finale at Fox Raceway.”

Along with SX Futures race victories earlier this year, Hymas also won Scouting Moto Combine bouts in its inaugural 2021 season. He notched an AMA Amateur National Schoolboy 2 (12-17) B/C title in 2020 and has multiple podium finishes at Loretta Lynn Ranch to his credit.
