Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki announces that Ryder DiFrancesco is set to make his AMA Pro Motocross Championship debut at the RedBud National on July 2.
The rising Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green star will compete in the 250 class at RedBud and Millville before returning to the AMA Amateur National Championship at Loretta’s Lynn’s where he is an eight-time champion at the ranch. Following the Loretta Lynn’s National, DiFrancesco will rejoin the AMA Pro Motocross Championship for the final four rounds of the 2022 season.
After an outstanding year of amateur motocross racing, having won both 2021 MX Sports Pro Racing Scouting Moto Combines and four of the five 2022 SX Futures events, DiFrancesco looks toward this next step in his career.
“I’m really fired up to be racing with the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team at the pro level in these upcoming weeks,” DiFrancesco said. “It has been a dream of mine to race for Mitch Payton’s team for a long time, so this is a huge step and I’ve put in a lot of work to be prepared for it. I’m ready to go out there and give it my best effort each weekend with the main goal of learning and improving every time I hit the track.”
The 2022 Pro Motocross RedBud National is set to take place in Buchanan, Michigan on Saturday, July 2 at RedBud MX.
