FXR ClubMX Yamaha has firmed its line-up for the 2024 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship season after adding Coty Schock to its roster at the 11th hour.

Schock recently split with Phoenix Racing Honda and, as a regular at ClubMX, he’s found a new home for 250SX East onboard the new YZ250F.

“I am overwhelmed,” Schock said of the opportunity. “I am already training at the best place in the world and really had no expectations this was going to happen. They let me borrow a bike and helped me get more gear to keep going, but never said they were working on a ride for me.

“Now I get to ride their bike, which is a freakin’ rocketship. It is hard to put into words how grateful I am, but they all know I am going to prove them right. I will be working my ass off to pay them back with results. When one door closes, another one opens and this one takes me to the big time.”

ClubMX team owner Brandon Hass explained: “ClubMX was founded on giving guys an opportunity to race at the highest level that were overlooked or underfunded. Coty is a good guy and currently rides better than he has ever ridden in his life. Unfortunately, the timing was horrible and like everyone else, budgets are closed.

“We gave him the shop bike to ride on the moto track to stay in shape and he was very grateful. Then, I thought about it for a couple of days and decided to let the team vote on it. It was going to be added work for the crew, the shop, the motor department and so on. During our Wednesday staff meeting, I outlined the situation, and opened it up for discussion, questions, and then a vote.

“The crew was seeing the same thing that I saw because it was unanimous to figure out a way to help him. We went to work making calls to Muc-Off, FXR, and Yamaha and put a program together to get him racing for our team for Supercross.”

The addition of Schock sees him join Jeremy Martin and Jett Reynolds on the eastern region, with Garrett Marchbanks and Phil Nicoletti set for 250SX West. Amateur talent Mark Fineis will also form part of the roster, contesting Supercross Futures before turning professional this summer.
