In the first outing for the GasGas brand on the High Point National track, Justin Barcia (51) put the bike into the lead of the 450 Class—but only briefly, as Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo (9) and Eli Tomac (3) and Star Racing’s Aaron Plessinger (7) all went by. Two other first-time visitors fared better at High Point, as Jalek Swoll claimed his first career AMA 250 Pro Motocross win (and first magazine cover) and Honda’s Jett Lawrence finished second and maintained the 250 points lead.

We are deeply rooted in Moto—We’ve been here all our lives. Back in 1998 when we turned an underground newspaper into a shiny color magazine, it immediately changed the game with its unprecedented depth of coverage, sense of humor, and access to the sport’s biggest names. Today, our readers know they can go to Racer X Online for all the news, race results, and event coverage they need, and then enjoy even more detail and perspective in the pages of Racer X Illustrated. The mag offers a chance to learn something new on every page and stay connected with the people and personalities that shape our sport—the competitors out on the racetrack, as well as the ones behind the scenes—through our exclusive deep-dive stories and columns.
Our trademark has always been insider knowledge from the experts who are at the races and around the sport. We have long prided ourselves on our unparalleled race reporting and detailed storytelling. We go deep with the riders and teams to provide comprehensive coverage you won’t find anywhere else—all with first-class photography and design. It’s a full education in motocross past, present, and future.
