As competition began in the city of St. Louis, the FLO Motorsports backed team of Gizmo Mods/Rock River/Yamaha team immediately appeared as an extraordinary unit of athletes and crew members, with exceptional speed being shown amongst the qualification rounds. Transitioning into the races thereafter with an abundance of confidence, all involved in the Yamaha assembly were recognized for the hard-working effort(s) while stationed in the state of Missouri.

Devin Simonson would register for the 250SX classification, and qualified into the night show with distinguished lap-times. Once onto the gate for the opening main event, he shifted into gear and raced his FLO Motorsports controlled Yamaha machine forward with fearlessness. Jumping over the largest gaps while navigating through demanding ruts, FLO Motorsports backed Devin Simonson’s speed to the checkered flag was equated with eventual scores of sixteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth, for a hard-fought fourteenth-place overall. 

The number twenty-three of Grant Harlan was a rider who had conquered the layout with a commanding presence aboard his FLO Motorsports controlled Yamaha machine and accelerated with poise amongst all sessions before transferring to the Last Chance Qualifier of this Triple Crown Format. Though encountering a bit of misfortune in the final race of the afternoon, Harlan’s expertise is destined to continue shining in the remaining rounds of the series.

New York’s TJ Albright put forth an incredible display of laps in afternoon qualifying, where he was fluid amongst rhythm lanes, corners, and the technical whoop-section as well before advancing to the LCQ. Once there, he was recognized as a staple within the top-ten — thriving amongst the best in the class, and constantly moving forward on this rutted racecourse. Allowing him and his FLO Motorsports backed Yamaha Machine to Ultimately finish in a remarkable position of eighth, the SX veteran is certain to climb even higher in the remaining races of the championship. 

Competing in the Supercross Future’s division was that of Iowa’s and FLO Motorsports backed Jaxen Driskell. Jaxen had excelled on the amateur circuit for countless years and has recently transitioned into the highest realm of amateur racing with immense skill — which was presented once more, while competing in St. Louis. Throughout the main event, the lap-times of the athlete aboard the number forty-five machine were superb. And as he eventually crossed the line in fifteenth, the momentum that was generated for this particular round in Missouri, will undoubtedly be sustained throughout the rest of 2024.

With the twelfth round of the championship now completed, the FLO Motorsports backed Gizmo Mods/Rock River/Yamaha team has once again proven that their work ethic and momentum both on and off of the racetrack was top tier. The assembly of athletes and team members have constantly ascended throughout the Monster Energy Supercross Championship thus far and will continue to do so as the series nears conclusion.
