Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Mumford Collects Another Top-10 in Glendale

Glendale Highlights:

  • Mumford qualified 14th overall in practice

Mumford finished 10th overall with 13-9-10 main event results

GLENDALE, ARIZ. (April 9, 2023) –Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Carson Mumford was the team’s sole representative at the Triple Crown race inside State Farm Stadium, earning his second-straight top-10 finish. He accumulated 13-9-10 race finishes to place him 10th on the night. Ryder DiFrancesco competed in his first Supercross Futures race of the season and came away with a second-place finish.


The day started slow for Mumford who tried to gel with the tricky track, earning 14th in qualifying. Mumford caught a lucky break to start the night with a red flag coming out in the opening race after he went down on the start. Because three laps hadn’t been completed, the race had a full restart, which saw Mumford come around sixth after the first lap. He tried to keep his pace high, maintaining seventh for several laps before eventually finishing 13th. Mumford grabbed another sixth-place start in the second main event and raced hard to finish inside the top 10, holding onto ninth at the checkered flag.

With minimal time on the bike due to his injury, Mumford dug deep in the final main event to keep pace. He started in eighth, pushing hard to collect another top 10, and he did just that with a 10th in the final race, placing him 10th overall.
“I felt like I had a lot to prove at this round even though I haven’t had a lot of time on the bike and overall the expectations were to have a solid day,” said Mumford. “I’m thankful I was able to show my speed in the heat race and I know I’m just going to be getting stronger here on out. Overall I’m happy with eighth, but think I can put in a top five before the end of the season.”

“The track was pretty challenging and I just couldn’t find my rhythm with it,” said Mumford. “All things considered, with how I felt and the triple crown format being a long night of racing, I’m thankful we walked away with a top 10. It’s nice that we have two weeks until the east/west shootout so we can work on some things before New Jersey.”

 

 

DiFrancesco has been working hard and made his 2023 debut at the Supercross Futures in Glendale. He qualified third overall in practice and when the gate dropped for the main event, came around second. He maintained good speed throughout the race, holding off pressure from third, and came across the finish line as the runner-up.
