Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda’s Cole Seely cruised out to the race to cheer on his teammates and have some fun. Here, he turned the camera on our own Jordan Powell. Through his Instagram account, Seely announced that next year he will be racing in the Lites class in Supercross, but switch to the 450 class for outdoors.
TransWorld Motocross test rider Nick Paluzzi came out to Elsinore looking to turn some heads and earn a rider for next year. With his dad as his mechanic, Paluzzi made it into the main motos, but unfortunately went 23-27 for 30th overall on the day.
Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer rode very well in both motos, coming from way back in the second to finish ninth and wrap the season up with a fifth place overall. In the days before the race, it was announced that Weimer had resigned with the Monster Energy Kawasaki team for multiple years. It is worth noting that Ryan Villopoto inked a three year extension with the team.
JWR/DNA Energy/Kawasaki’s Josh Grant had a day that he would probably rather forget. After going down in the first turn of the first moto, Grant attempted to continue, but his bike was too beat up, forcing him to DNF the race. In the second, though, he turned a good start into a sixth place finish to salvage his day.
Here’s what the first turn in the first 450 moto looked like for Grant. As was the case all year, Mike Alessi took the holeshot in both motos.
Nico Izzi's first moto was cut short when a crash destroyed the throttle of his Yamaha 450. Izzi will make the move to Rocstar Suzuki for next season and hopes to be on the bike for Monster Cup.
