4130 Motorsports Pro Class Rider Max Lindquist Takes Seventh
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Seven-time national champion Max Lindquist and four-time national champion Jayden Londerville have joined forces for the 2023 season of the ATV Motocross National Championship Series (ATVMX), an AMA National Championship. Competing on the 4130 Motorsports team, Lindquist will contest in the highly competitive pro class, while Londerville will contend in pro-am and pro sport.
Lindquist and Londerville put in great rides at the pro-only season opener in Daytona Beach, Florida. Held inside the iconic Daytona International Speedway on March 7, Londerville powered his Yamaha YFZ450R to his second career win in the pro sport class. Lindquist scored seventh in the pro class.

Lindquist’s day started with snatching eighth in qualifying. In the first AMA Pro ATV heat, Lindquist was inside of the top five within a couple of laps. By Lap 6, he gained another position and was able to maintain the position until the checkers flew.
For the main event, Lindquist got out of the gate inside the top 10 and quickly made several passes. He pushed hard throughout the moto on the technical track that featured clay, sand and loamy soil, ultimately taking seventh at the line.
“I started off qualifying with an eighth overall,” said Max Lindquist. “I struggled to get comfortable. In heat one, I had a mid-pack start. I was able to finish out my heat in fourth. I had about a 10th place start in the main, but made a few quick passes. Unfortunately, I made a few mistakes and was only able to make it up to seventh.”

Londerville impressed the crowd by laying down the fastest qualifying time in the first pro sport session at Daytona International Speedway. In his second qualifier, he scored second after battling lapped traffic.
After getting first gate pick for his heat race, Londerville blasted off of the line inside of the top five and continued his blistering pace. By the second corner, he had propelled himself into the runner-up spot. He was closing in on the leader and waited for the opportune time to make a pass. Eventually, Londerville was able to move into the lead and pull away from the field. He took the checkers by more than 3 seconds ahead of the second-place finisher.
In the main event, Londerville got another top-five start. Just before the halfway point, he put himself in a podium position. With the leaders in sight, he went to work to close the gap. He began the charge in hopes that the pressure would get to them. Eventually, the second-place rider would make a mistake and Londerville was able to get around him. With several minutes left to go, the leader made an error and Londerville drove into the lead.
“In my heat race, I had the first gate pick,” said Londerville. “I got a decent start. By the second corner, I pushed my way into second. I eventually set up a good pass on the inside. I took the win, which set me up with a good gate pick for the main. I came out fifth off of the start of the main and made a pass right away on fourth. By mid-race, I had made a pass on third and had some work to do to catch the leaders. The first and second place riders made mistakes, and I was able to get around them to secure the win.”
The 10-round series heads to Gatorback Cycle Park in Alachua, Florida, on March 18-19.
Lindquist is seventh in the pro class point standings headed into the second round.
“My finish is not anything close to my goal for Daytona, but I’m leaving healthy and ready to bounce back,” Lindquist said. “I’m looking forward to improving from here on out.”
Londerville holds the lead in the pro sport class.
“This year, I’m focusing on riding smart and not forcing anything too early in the motos,” Londerville said.
