    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing's Chase Sexton made his return to the 450SX podium in Round 13 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship at Foxborough's Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts tonight, finishing just short of the victory after charging hard to a P2 result in the Main Event, as Tom Vialle claimed third position in 250SX East.

    Equipped with the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, defending premier class champion Sexton was fifth on the time sheets following qualifying this afternoon and then raced to P3 in the second heat of the night.

    Sexton was positioned fourth after lap one in the Main Event, quickly climbing into third and then pressuring for second at that point. He managed to make a pass for position on lap 18 and then went to work on challenging for the lead, eventually taking the checkered flag in the runner-up result and now sits third in the standings, 15 points outside of the lead with four rounds to run in 450SX.

    Chase Sexton: "It was definitely hard to pass on this track tonight... I got by Jason [Anderson] early and then I was behind Kenny [Roczen] for a while. It took a lot to set that pass up, trying to get an angle [to make the move]. After that, you couldn't be super-aggressive with how the track was, it was really slippery, so you had to be patient. I saw Cooper [Webb] miss the rut toward the end, so I went to rail the turn and maybe set up a pass, but it didn't come together. I feel like I had good speed tonight, I was decent in the heat and felt like I rode pretty good in the Main Event with how the track was, so we will keep pushing from here into these final races."

    Unfortunately for Sexton's 450SX Class teammate Aaron Plessinger, a crash in this morning's Free Practice session resulted in him being ruled out of action for the remainder of the round, set to undergo further evaluation on his elbow.

    Foxborough saw the 250SX East series resume in its sixth round of the 2024 season, where Frenchman Tom Vialle raced his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to third place on the podium. Vialle was fifth fastest in qualifying and then improved to P3 in Heat 2 of the night, before racing to third position in the Main Event. He retains second in the standings, only four points outside of the lead with three races remaining.

    Tom Vialle: "I always try to do my best no matter what and I think that finishing third was the best I could do tonight, so we are happy to be on the podium again. Next weekend will be really important and the coming races, too. There are only three rounds to go – it is going to be a good fight to the end, for sure."

    The Supercross Futures category was also back on track in Foxborough, where KTM-supported amateur racer Luke Fauser raced to third position on the podium tonight.

    Red Bull KTM Factory Racing pair Aaron Plessinger and Chase Sexton both completed tonight's final Triple Crown round of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship season inside the top five on combined scores, with Plessinger fourth and Sexton fifth following an action-filled night of 450SX competition.

    The afternoon saw Plessinger 10th quickest on combined qualifying times, before he established himself at the front of the pack in Race 1 for a third-place score. He continued that form with eighth in the second race after a post-race penalty of two places for jumping on a red cross flag, and then rode his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION to sixth in Race 3. That placed him fourth overall, currently sitting P6 in the championship standings.

    Aaron Plessinger: "It was pretty wild tonight! I was struggling throughout the day and then went out in the first one and rode pretty good in the first part actually, snuck by for third. In the second one, I got a pretty bad start, ended up sixth before I was docked, and then in the last one I worked my way forward to sixth. Overall, I felt good in the second two mains, fourth isn't horrible and now we get a weekend off, which I'm excited for."

    After qualifying in fifth position, defending 450SX Champion Chase Sexton's night came undone early when he was caught up in a multi-rider incident on the opening lap of Race 1. That saw him take the checkered flag in P10, before rebounding for fifth in race two following a two-position penalty post-race, also for jumping on the red cross flag. Race 3 saw him battle to third place, which sealed him fifth overall for the round, and he maintains P3 in the points race – now 20 points outside of the lead.

    Chase Sexton: "Overall it was a rough day. I qualified fifth, then crashed in the first Main Event and got 10th, then I went 5-3. I'm ready for a weekend off and we'll come back swinging."

    250SX West rookie Julien Beaumer starred at the beginning of Race 1 by taking over the lead on lap one, before eventually finishing in sixth place. The second race saw him put forward a solid effort for eighth after completing lap one as far back as P15, and then in the final outing he took P7, also earning that same result overall and marking his fourth seventh-place finish in a row. The 17-year-old now sits sixth in the points onboard his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

    Julien Beaumer: "Tonight was good, especially because this afternoon wasn't my best in qualifying. I got two out of three good starts, was consistent all night, and didn't make too many mistakes. In the second main I had to fight from the back, but I'm happy with my improvements and look forward to going to the next one."
