Monster Star Yamaha’s Colt Nichols scored his second straight 250 victory in textbook fashion at Saturday night’s Indianapolis round to claim the points lead in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250SX East coast championship.
In the main event, the Oklahoma rider grabbed the holeshot with teammate Christian Craig in tow. He led from start to finish to claim a ten second lead victory at the chequered flag.
“It was just drama free, just the way I like it,” said Nichols. “I finally got off the gate really well and controlled the inside on the first turn, Which is something that was pretty key tonight.
“I really tried to put in my laps, and once I got a big enough gap I could kind of see where Christian was, and also Mosiman and Jett. I was keeping tabs on everybody just so I knew if I needed to pick it up or whatever I needed to do.
“It was really just about managing the lappers, We got into them pretty thick again tonight! Overall, I felt like I just rode really well and was able to just do my own thing.”
