Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing rider Justin Barcia finished off his 2024 AMA Supercross Championship season on a high note with a fifth-place result at Salt Lake City's Rice-Eccles Stadium tonight, continuing his late run of form in the 17th and final round.

  • Bam Bam battles to fifth in final 450SX Main Event of 2024
  • Pierce Brown finishes fourth in final 250SX East standings
  • Kiwi revelation Cole Davies rips to 250SX Futures crown!

Barcia put his GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition sixth on the time sheets at the conclusion of qualifying and then impressed with second position in the opening premier class Heat race of the night.

From there, he kept momentum into the 450SX Main Event, where he would greet the checkered flag in fifth position, marking his third top-five result across the final four races of the series. He claimed eighth in the championship points in the end.

Justin Barcia: "Salt Lake City was a good way to end the Supercross season. I felt very comfortable all day, which landed me finishing second in the Heat race, and I’m happy to end the season with a top-five finish on my GASGAS MC 450F Factory Edition. I’m focused and ready for the outdoors now!"

The second 250SX East/West Showdown of the year was a challenging one for Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing, with Pierce Brown qualifying fifth and then replicating that result in the 250SX East Heat, but he had to settle for 12th in the Main Event. That result saw him finish the season fourth in the final standings on his GASGAS MC 250F Factory Edition.

Utah was also a mixed outing for 250SX West newcomer Ryder DiFrancesco, the Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing rider qualifying in P7 and then racing to ninth in the western regional Heat race. He was 13th in the 250SX East/West Showdown Main Event, which maintained 12th position overall in his first season of AMA Supercross as a professional.

Ryder DiFrancesco: "I started out today decent and kept working to improve throughout the day. It wasn't what we wanted overall, but going into the outdoors fresh now and am looking forward to that."

GASGAS amateur standout Cole Davies once again made a major impression in winning the 250SX Supercross Futures Main Event in Salt Lake City, crowned the AMA National Champion in the category following what has been a breakout year for the New Zealander on his GASGAS MC 250F.

Cole Davies: "It's definitely good to get this experience in the Supercross Futures and I've improved at each round. I'm super excited to win this title with GASGAS and really appreciate everybody who has been behind us this year!"
