Tayce Morgan started the season with some major success in the 51cc categories, but the Utah native has rapidly developed throughout the year and is already turning some heads in the younger 65cc divisions. The Fly Racing backed rider has been putting in some hard work with Tyla Rattray throughout the 2020 season and he’s been able to find some serious speed in the 65cc classes now that he’s made the transition full-time. Morgan’s Dirty 100 campaign kicked off back at the World Center of Racing for the Daytona RCSX, competing in both the 51cc (7-8) Limited class and the 65cc (7-9) class. He didn’t fold under the pressure of the daunting speedway and rose to the occasion aboard his Cobra machine, taking the top spot in the 51cc (7-8) Limited class in commanding fashion while snagging 15th in the 65cc category. He continued his winning form one short week later at Spring A Ding Ding, taking the top spot yet again in the 51cc (7-8) Limited class as he sat atop the Dirty 100 standings with a perfect 100 point score. Despite a DNF in the 65cc (7-9) Limited class that weekend, Morgan showed his potential with a 6th place finish in the second moto while earning an all-important 26 points in the standings. Another DNF and some tough luck at the Loretta Lynn Amateur National Motocross Championship didn’t allow him to finish where he was hoping at the Ranch, but it ended up being a decent haul of points in both the 51cc (7-8) Limited and 65cc (7-9) Limited classes. Morgan finished two motos inside of the top ten on his Cobra but a DNF in the second moto hurt him in the long run. Regardless, he bounced back and earned a solid top ten finish in the 65cc (7-9) Limited class, bringing home 33 points for his effort. The rider out of Utah has moved onto the KTM 65 full time at the Baja Brawl, although he still holds 4th place in the 51cc (7-8) Limited standings after four rounds. Nonetheless, his extra focus on the 65cc classes has clearly paid off as Morgan’s speed and consistency was off the charts at the Brawl. The KTM rider finished in 3rd place and 5th place overall in 65cc (7-9) Limited and 65cc (7-9), respectively, showcasing the improvements that he’s made. Impressively, he has worked his way into 5th place in the Dirty 100 standings, only 6 points out of a podium position so he’ll be fired up when the gate drops at The Motoplayground Race at Ponca City.
