Video: Sexton passes McElrath for a big win – contact
Chase Sexton had to come from behind Shane McElrath during the penultimate round of the 250SX East Coast Supercross series but he managed to make it happen and now has a championship lead of six points behind the final showdown on Sunday.
“I just knew I was good through that rhythm section and knew I could get close to him. I got really good drive and just thought, right I need to make a pass here. It was good, it was pretty aggressive but also I didn’t want to give Shane another chance to get back at me on the next corner. I had to make it stick and from there on I tried to sprint away and hit my marks as good as I could while going through lappers. The track was really good and I enjoyed that main event”, Sexton stated.
For the lead 🏟
