Sexton confirmed champ following fuel protest

Honda’s Chase Sexton is now confirmed as AMA East Coast 250 Supercross champ as his factory CRF250’s fuel was checked following a protest and found to be legal. Sexton now starts his 450 career for HRC as team-mate to Ken Roczen.

Following the Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250SX East/West Showdown Main Event on June 21 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, a protest regarding fuel was filed against the race winner, GEICO Honda team rider Chase Sexton.

After adhering to the Fuel Test Procedures stated in Appendix E of the 2020 AMA Supercross rulebook, Race Direction concluded that the fuel in question used at the season-ending event complies with the specifications listed in “Section 1 – General Equipment Standards, 1.10 Fuel Specifications.”

Across 9 rounds of racing, Sexton scored 9 more points, 218 to 209, than Monster Energy/Star/Yamaha Racing’s Shane McElrath to earn his second consecutive AMA Supercross 250SX East No. 1 plate.

The decision of Race Direction is final. Race results are official.
