Kade Nightingale made a name for himself in 2019 by winning the 51cc (4-6) Special Limited class at the Loretta Lynn Amateur National Motocross Championship, helping him to achieve the top spot in the 51cc Jr. Dirty 100 rankings. All of his success and accolades from the previous season made him one of the riders to watch in 2020 and the Cobra rider is picking up right where he left off, fighting for the title in the 51cc (4-6) Limited Dirty 100 Championship. Nightingale started the season at Spring A Ding Ding where he battled tooth and nail with fellow Cobra rider, Jaydin Smart, commencing a rivalry that would last all year long. The two of them swapped moto wins, but Nightingale was able to come away with the victory in the second moto, therefore giving him the overall and the subsequent 50 points. At the Loretta Lynn Amateur National Motocross Championship in August, the Oklahoma native was able to make his way back to the top step of the podium in the first moto of the 51cc (4-6) Limited class, but he wasn’t able to secure the overall and was forced to settle for 2nd position. Nightingale got back to winning ways at the Baja Brawl as he dominated the field, winning all three motos in the sands of Millington, Michigan on his way to another all-important 50 point haul. He’s currently tied for 2nd position in the 51cc (4-6) Limited Dirty 100 rankings, equal on 145 points with Smart, while Gavyn Welzien sits 4 markers ahead in 1st position. Considering there are 5 points separating the payout for 1st and 2nd position, all three riders are firmly in contention for the top spot in the 51cc (4-6) Limited Dirty 100 standings, setting up what’s going to be a monumental showdown at The Motoplayground Race at Ponca City.
