Grant Harlan to Make Return to Racing at Arlington Supercross

The 2024 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship is gearing up for action after a brief hiatus and is set to resume this weekend in Arlington, Texas.

Taking place at the renowned AT&T Stadium, the seventh round of the 450SX class, alongside the second round of the 250SX East Region Championship, promises to inject fresh energy into what has already been a thrilling season. Notably, the Arlington SX round marks the return of Grant Harlan to the track.

Harlan, riding for Yamaha, had been sidelined for the initial six rounds of the championship due to injuries sustained during the Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations event in early October.

A mishap during his qualifying race led to a hard crash when he inadvertently landed on another rider’s downed bike, resulting in a fractured pelvis. Though surgery wasn’t required, his recovery journey was demanding.

In a recent update from the Gizmo Mods/Yamaha/Rock River Racing team on Monday, Harlan’s return was confirmed with enthusiasm:

“We’re thrilled for Round 7 at AT&T Stadium in Texas! Grant Harlan will be back! After enduring a broken pelvis injury in October 2023, Grant underwent a three-month non-weight-bearing recovery period. Despite the challenges, he’s diligently prepared for his Sophomore Season in the Premier 450 class. We’re excited to have our Team Leader back on the track and anticipate him regaining his momentum as the series progresses.”

In his rookie season aboard a 450cc machine, Harlan finished 18th in the 450SX standings in 2023. His standout performance came with a career-best ninth-place finish at the Denver Supercross in May 2023.

Making his season debut with the newly assigned 2024 AMA national number, #23, Harlan steps into the shoes of Chase Sexton’s former career number.

Sexton, the 2023 450SX champion, opted for a single-digit number, securing national #4. While currently running #1 in AMA Supercross, Sexton will transition to #4 for the AMA Pro Motocross Championship kick-off in May.

Accompanying the announcement, the Rock River squad shared an image of Harlan’s #23 Yamaha YZ450F, further stoking anticipation for his return to competitive action.
