PM: GasGas, AMA Supercross Oakland



The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GASGAS Factory Racing Team is on the gas and seeking those final few details to push them closer to the top of the charts.


Justin Barcia continues to impress aboard his MC 450F Factory Edition this season, running third in his heat race among some very fast company. Though he didn’t get the start he was hoping for at the drop of the gate for the main event and was 13th early on, he went on a charge that jumped him up to sixth at the finish.

Justin Barcia:„I had a pretty good qualifying race, and it was a good battle for the top three. Unfortunately, in the main event, I didn’t get off to the best start but had some really good battles and only got up to sixth. So, it’s back to work on riding, working on getting up front fast, and I’m looking forward to Texas. I like it there and we’ve had good luck there. It’s usually a good track, good dirt, and the fans are always exciting, so I’m looking forward to getting it on the box.”

250SX West
Pierce Brown has shown plenty of speed on his MC 250F Factory Edition during the 250 West portion of the 2023 AMA Supercross series, and he matched his season-best result with a fifth in the 250 main event. But a podium was tantalizingly close, as he chased down the leaders, and climbed his way to third at the midway point. While a pair of late-race crashes left him in fifth, he knows the potential is there for more.

Pierce Brown:Oakland was another tough night. I feel like the riding was there, I just didn’t put it all together. I had a decent start in the main and was waiting for a spot to make a pass. I made a pass for third, and then Mcadoo got me back and put me on the ground. I got back up in fifth, passed back into fourth, and on the last lap fell again and ended up in fifth. It’s not the night we needed and I’m pretty upset about it. But on to Seattle. We have a long break before that, so we’re just going to reset and get back to work.”
