Jeremy Martin Clinches First Career 250 Class Championship at Indiana National
The 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, entered the penultimate round of its 12-race championship series on Saturday with the inaugural running of the Thor Indiana National from Crawfordsville, Indiana. In what could be considered the most unpredictable conditions of the season, Saturday's racing action came away with very little surprises, including the crowning of the first National Champion of 2014 with Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha's Jeremy Martin clinching the 250 Class title one round early.
With natural rolling hills and a flowing layout, the brand new Ironman Raceway track was quickly deemed one of the most favorable tracks on the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross circuit, that is until the rain began to fall Saturday morning. Track conditions went from being perfect, to less than idea, in just the matter of hours.
Heading into moto one, Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha's Jeremy Martin needed only nine points to claim his first career 250 Class Championship. The Minnesota native got off to a good start in the first moto and carried his momentum to a second place finish, which is good enough to clinch the title one round early. Martin and Star Racing use VP Racing Fuels.
"To be able to have the number one plate, I've been thinking of how good it would feel to hear Kevin [Crowther] from the AMA to be passing on the number one plate to me and this is the greatest moment of my life," Martin said after receiving the AMA #1 Plate and his first 250 Class title.
Jeremy Martin left the inaugural Indiana National with his first ever 250 Class Championship in hand, while also scoring Yamaha its first 250 Class Championship since Jeff Emig's title in 1992.
