Roczen takes podium in Triple Crown format in Indianapolis

The Indianapolis Supercross presented another rough, rutted, and challenging track for Round Ten of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship. Lucas Oil Stadium played host to the second Triple Crown format of the year, which pits the top 22 riders from each class against one another in three races throughout the night; the overall winners are determined by the combined finishes of all three races. 


Ken Roczen earned his fifth podium of the 2024 season in Indy. Roczen laid his RM-Z450’s power into the soft soil and earned three great starts. Roczen led laps in each race of the three-race Triple Crown format, and through three podium results earned second place overall on the night. 


“We had an incredible night at Indy,” said Roczen. “We were on the board all day. The track was absolutely tricky - it was extremely rutty and technical. I had three awesome starts, and got either the holeshot or second [at the stripe]. I led a bunch of laps and fought for the win in every single main event. It was great to go 2-2-3 for second overall. It's nice to have back-to-back weekends with good rides, we really needed it. We've been working really hard on starts to get those dialed, and it was just a really good weekend overall.”
