Now approaching his third run through the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, Jessy Nelson continues to make progress in the professional ranks with Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda. He showed an uncanny ability to start near the front of the pack when he first joined the circuit in 2012, but the teenager from central California has experienced a number of setbacks that have kept him from attaining the same success that he had as an amateur. With years of experience to his credit and the support of a top-tier 250 team, many peg Nelson to be a contender when the summer kicks off at Glen Helen Raceway.
