Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Hammaker Shows Heart in Hometown Race

Supercross // Philadelphia // Highlights:

  • Hammaker qualified second overall
  • Hammaker earned his first heat race win of the season

Hammaker led for 11 laps in the main event but went down with another rider to finish seventh

PHILADELPHIA (April 28, 2024) – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Seth Hammaker rode an incredible comeback race in front of his hometown fans at Lincoln Financial Field, earning a Heat Race win and seventh in the main event. The main event results don’t show that he led for half the race before being taken out while running second, remounting to race back to seventh. The result pushed him back into the top 10 in the Eastern Regional 250SX Championship.


With the round in Philadelphia being a 3 pm start time, the day started with qualifying in the morning hours, which resulted in Hammaker qualifying second overall and lining up for the opening heat. Hammaker was like a bullet out of a gun when the gate dropped for his heat and took the holeshot, eventually holding off advances to claim his first heat race win of the season. He mimicked the heat race and grabbed the lead early in the main event. Hammaker kept up a good pace and, after leading over half the race, fell back to second on Lap 12. As he was maintaining second, he was landed on from behind in the sand and went down. He remounted as quickly as possible, but with only three laps to go, he could only make it up to seventh.

“Today didn’t end up how we had hoped it would, but we had a lot of high moments,” said Hammaker. “I was able to get the heat race win, which was something special for my friends and family, and then lead a lot of laps in the main event. I know we were basically the second fastest today, and I really wish we could have put the team on the podium. I’m thankful to be back racing, so we’ll come back swinging at the last race in Salt Lake City.”
