CLUBMX ANNOUNCES FURTHER ADDITIONS TO 2021 LINEUP
Earlier this week, the ClubMX team made some waves with a big announcement that current Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki rider Garrett Marchbanks would be joining forces with them in 2021. It only took a couple of days before the team was ready to announce the rest of their lineup for the upcoming Monster Energy Supercross season.
Joey Crown will represent the team indoors for the second successive year, building on impressive 2019 offseason performances in Europe, most notably the Prince of Geneva crown in December. The Michigan native was able to gather up the offseason momentum and direct it towards the beginning of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season, starting his 250SX East campaign with a pair of top ten results. Crown finished in 8th place in the 250SX Main Event at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay and he went 7-5-10 for 7th place overall at the Arlington Supercross Triple Crown. Unfortunately, his season came to an abrupt end when he suffered a broken collarbone and a concussion. He’s been back at full fitness and riding for the Rock River Yamaha team in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship this year, doing well to put his privateer effort in the points a couple of different times throughout the season.
The ClubMX team announced the signing on their social media as follows:
“Welcome back to the team for 2021 @joeycrown355 ! Joey won major off season events and started the supercross season off strong running up front in his first ever main event. Joey showed he has what it takes to run up front leaving us motivated to continue to develop our program. We are looking forward to a great off season camp with Joey, building off our foundation from last year!”
The other rider that will join Garrett Marchbanks and Joey Crown in the 250SX category for the ClubMX team is going to be Jace Owen. The rider out of Illinois has spent lots of time riding and training at the facility lately and should remain pretty comfortable although he’s making the switch from the Phoenix Racing Honda team. Although he hadn’t competed in Monster Energy Supercross since 2015, Owen has had lots of success in the former AMA AMSOIL Arenacross series as well as the Kicker Arenacross Championship, taking the title in the latter just last year. Considering he didn’t experience a gate drop in Monster Energy Supercross for five years, a couple of top-ten finishes for the Illinois native at Salt Lake City 1 and 3 in addition to a 12th place in the overall standings wasn’t a bad way to end his season.
Here’s what ClubMX had to say about bringing Jace onboard for next season:
“Full circle with this guy 2011-14’ and we are excited to give it another go! When a rider is committed to grinding, we are committed to giving it everything we can. Welcome to the team for 2021.”
