10 things to watch out for at the 2021 Ironman Pro Motocross

Jeremy Martin is not going to win this championship. You have to be in the game to win, no matter what your speed, and Martin, who missed a while after injuring his wrist in Thunder Valley, didn’t. That said, he claims he would be the 250 national champion if he hadn’t been injured! He’s won more races (six) than anyone, he’s won more combinations (three) than anyone, and despite three races without scoring points he still sits third in the championship. Will he continue to fill in his numbers at Ironman Raceway, or will Lawrence and Cooper box the former champion? -Hansel

If you’re looking for the most exciting points battle in the 450 class, you’ll find it in the fifth-place fight between Cooper Webb and Marvin Musquin, both of whom are tied for place with 240 points each. Both drivers have struggled this season and losing a spot in points is the last thing either of them wants. If Webb can fight for the spot and hold onto it until the end of the season, that would mark the best end of season of his 450 career. But for Musquin, whose worst overall result of the series on a 450 is fourth, this would be his worst summer 450 yet. Who will leave Ironman with the advantage? -Hansel

So far, Joey Savatgy’s second half of summer is proving better than the first. He was, for the most part, consistently in the top ten, and thanks to good starts at Budds Creek he managed to get 6-7 to finish sixth overall, scoring his best result of the season. On Instagram, the still hard on himself Savatgy said that his driving and speed were not his best, but come on, you’re not in luck to finish sixth overall at this level. We’ll see what kind of heat Savatgy will bring to these last three races. -Hansel
