On Championship Sunday at the 50th annual Mammoth Motocross, Thunder Funding Race Team rider Levi Newby and Brock Papi put on a 450B battle that had the announcers calling it "One of the best performances of the weekend!" Dicing bar-to-bar with fighter pilot precision, Newby fought his way to a jaw-dropping victory that put his competitors on notice: Levi Newby is on the gas and headed straight to the top.
Battling with factory-backed racers all weekend long, his preparation was apparent as he traded positions with B-class leaders including Derek Drake, Jo Shimoda, Brock Papi, and more. Even with a flat tire early in the Schoolboy II Final, Newby gutted out every lap and consistently put points on the board.
With Loretta Lynn's on the horizon, the Newby family left Mammoth with the winds of momentum at their back and an East Coast departure quickly approaching. Seeking heat, humidity, and ruts before the Loretta's, they'll acclimate at the Georgia Practice Facility before making the pilgrimage to Hurricane Mills, TN. All the best, Levi!
