250 World All-Star Lineup Announced for SMX Final at Los Angeles

towers ll22 celebration

As the sport of off-road motorcycle racing prepares for a historic full-circle moment with the highly anticipated and climactic return to the iconic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the SuperMotocross (SMX) League has confirmed the 17-racer field that will comprise the 250 World All-Stars at the SuperMotocross World Championship Final. The sport’s most elite amateur prospects will kick off a landmark night for the sport this Saturday, September 23, as they tackle the dynamic track layout, including a run up and down the legendary peristyle, for a showcase of the country’s top 250cc talent on the hallowed grounds of the 100-year-old venue.

This group of 250cc racers has been curated through a collective and collaborative effort between team managers representing the factory-backed amateur race programs for each competing manufacturer. Thanks to an established and proven investment in the development of the sport’s top prospects through programs like the Supercross Futures program in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship and the Scouting Moto Combine in the Pro Motocross Championship, the World All-Stars lineup features the most established and highly touted athletes in amateur motocross.

 A total of 14 of the 17 racers that will line up on the starting gate Saturday night will bring Supercross Futures and/or Moto Combine experience into the World All-Stars event. Most notable of that group is 19-year-old Pennsylvania native Gavin Towers. The newly signed Monster Energy Yamaha Star Racing rider enjoyed a breakthrough outing at the Monster Energy AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s this past August when he captured his first AMA National Championship in the 250 Pro Sport division. He then carried the momentum into the Scouting Moto Combine at Ironman Raceway just a few weeks later with a dominant 1-1 performance. Perhaps no rider is on a more significant upward trajectory than Towers at the moment.

Joining Towers will be a fellow AMA National Champion from Loretta Lynn’s, 17-year-old Illinois native Krystian Janik. During his first full year of 250cc competition Janik has shown he has the talent to be a factor on the big bike in the coming years. The Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green racer prevailed with the 250 B class title at Loretta’s and then made his presence felt in his Combine debut at Ironman.

Not to be outdone is a slew of racers familiar with running at the front of the pack, battling for wins and podiums. This group includes 15-year-old Tennessean Drew Adams, the youngest rider in the field with a Moto Combine podium to his credit, 17-year-old Colorado native Dilon Blecha, a Loretta Lynn’s runner-up this past August, 18-year-old Washington native Preston Boespflug, a podium finisher in Supercross Futures, 18-year-old Indian native Mark Fineis, another Supercross Futures podium finisher, 18-year-old Californian Parker Ross, a Loretta Lynn’s runner-up last August and Supercross Futures podium finisher, and 18-year-old Californian Noah Viney, a past winner of the Scouting Moto Combine.
