Whoa, more Silly Season news has just dropped and it’s a big one!
Two-time 250 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Champion Jeremy Martin is leaving Monster Energy/Yamaha Star Racing and is headed to Muc-Off/FXR/ClubMX for the 2023 season. Martin will race the 250 Class in both Monster Energy AMA Supercross and Lucas Oil Pro Motocross next year, according to the announcement.
This is a HUGE get for the team. Jeremy’s brother, Alex, currently rides for the team in the 450 Class and just wrapped up AMA Supercross Rookie of the Year honors.
Martin called into the PulpMX Show tonight to confirm the deal. Racer X got the heads up on the PR, which you can read there. Quotes are from the PR.
“As you can imagine, it was a difficult decision with all the offers on the table. I am familiar with the ClubMX program and it has been growing at a good pace for a reason,” said Martin in the team announcement. “Their bikes are on point and I have a good comfort level with Brandon [Haas] and the crew. The main deciding factor for me is the ClubMX facility itself. What most people don’t see or know about are the ten tracks, the training program, the fitness program .. all top notch.”
“Bringing a multi-time national champion to our team takes us to a new level. I have known Jeremy for a long time and have a great deal of respect for his attitude and work ethic. He is the perfect fit for our style of racing and will lift all aspects of our program. He’s a grinder. He just puts his head down and does the work with no flash. He doesn’t need a spotlight on him – he just wants to win” said owner Brandon Haas.
Jeremy Martin is expected to miss all of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross in 2022 due to a shoulder injury.
