MX Sports Pro Racing Congratulates 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Champions Ken Roczen and Jeremy Martin

MX Sports Pro Racing wishes to congratulate newly crowned 450 Class Champion Ken Roczen and 250 Class Champion Jeremy Martin, along with their respective teams-Red Bull KTM team and Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha-on a successful 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship season.

In a highly anticipated championship battle that went down to the last moto of the 12th and final round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, Red Bull KTM's Ken Roczen maintained his composure to capture his first career 450 Class title at Utah's Miller Motorsports Park on Saturday. In the 250 Class, Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha's Jeremy Martin clinched his first career title one round early in Indiana, where he finished the season in a strong manner with a 1-1 sweep at Utah's finale.

With five overall wins and eight moto wins, the most of anyone in the 450 Class, Roczen was the most consistently dominant rider in the premier division. The German native surrendered the season-opening victory to his teammate Ryan Dungey, but a 1-1 sweep at round two projected Roczen into a position to take over the championship points lead at round three and he maintained possession of the points leader's red number-plate background for the duration.

Roczen is the first German native to win a Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship title and is the 23rd different 450 Class champion in the series' 43-year history. Additionally, he joins an elite group of riders who hold the distinction of winning the title in their rookie season, including Dungey (2010), Ricky Carmichael (200) and Jean-Michel Bayle (1991).

Jeremy Martin put forth an impressive performance en route to his first career title in the 250 Class, where he controlled the championship points lead and red number plate background through all 12 rounds. The 21-year-old began his sophomore professional season on fire in the 250 Class after sweeping the first five motos in a dominant fashion. Martin tallied five additional moto wins to total 10 for the season, while capturing five overall wins, the most of anyone in the 250 Class, and even two holeshots. Additionally, Martin led 41 percent of all laps in the 250 Class.

It was a banner year for Martin, the Star Racing team and Yamaha, who each experienced important milestones during the 2014 season. In addition to race-specific highlights for the Yamaha, Jeremy Martin's 250 Class title gave the brand its first AMA Motocross Championship in this division since Jeff Emig's title in 1992, which is perhaps the most impressive feat of them all.
