4130 Motorsports’ Max Lindquist Captures Seventh in Pro Class
MOUNT MORRIS, Pa. – The ATV Motocross National Championship Series (ATVMX), an AMA National Championship, rolled east to the hills of Pennsylvania for the fourth round of the series. After muddy track conditions during practice on Friday, the facility staff — with a little help from Mother Nature — was able to get things cleaned up quite a bit for racing on Saturday. Sunday would be yet another story after more rain.
4130 Motorsports’ Jayden Londerville went 3-1 in pro-am to take the overall win for the weekend. In pro sport, he went 1-3 for second overall.
Max Lindquist, pro class competitor, and his team made some adjustments with his machine, and he felt the improvement. He went 7-7 to take seventh overall at High Point Raceway.

Lindquist blasted out of the gate and was just inches away from pulling the holeshot in pro Moto 1. He ran up front for most of the first moto in podium contention. Lindquist held off a pack of hard-charging competitors for several laps, but they slipped around him. The third through seventh place riders were incredibly close in lap times throughout the moto. Lindquist eventually took seventh when the checkered flag flew.
In the second moto, Lindquist grabbed a top 10 start and began climbing his way up to seventh as he clicked off laps. When the moto ended, he took seventh at the finish line.
His 7-7 results in Pennsylvania earned him seventh overall for the weekend.
“High Point [Raceway] was a step in the right direction,” said Lindquist. “In moto one, I had a good start — which led to a hard fought seventh place. Then, in moto two, my start wasn’t as great but I still managed to score seventh by the end of the race.”

The pro sport class saw two heat races and a last-chance qualifier at High Point Raceway. Londerville was slotted into pro sport Heat 2 and rode his Yamaha YFZ450R into the top three out of the gate. The top three were bumper-to-bumper. Just under halfway through, a rider spun out on a corner and Londerville was gifted second. The 18-year-old then powered his way into the lead just before the white flag came out and was able to maintain it until the checkers waved.
Londerville had first gate pick for Moto 2, but didn’t get the start he wanted after encountering contact from a pack of riders after the start. Trying to avoid a crash, he was shuffled to the back. He charged and was up to eighth by the end of the first lap. By the third lap, he had worked his way into fourth. He continued the forward momentum, reaching third just before the white flag waved. He attempted to overtake second, but ultimately held third to the finish.
Londerville claimed second overall in pro sport with 1-3 finishes.
“I knew I had my work cut out for me in the second moto after getting hit multiple times off of the start,” said Londerville. “I charged the entire race, making good passes and working my way up to third. I fought second right at the end but ran out of time to pass.”
High Point Raceway, nestled in a valley, features lots of elevation changes on the track. The weather also presented challenges throughout the weekend, with rain on Friday and Saturday nights. However, those conditions didn’t intimidate Londerville. He set the fastest qualifying time in pro-am.
In the first moto, he not only had to overtake riders but also overcome slippery track conditions while doing so. The track didn’t offer a lot of line options, which made passing competitors even more of a challenge. Londerville made his way up to third and was close to the second-place rider by the end of the moto, but finished in third.
In the second moto, the condition of the track was finally starting to improve. Londerville got off to a top three start and immediately claimed the second-place spot. He pressured the leader and was able to make a clean pass. He continued to set a strong pace and captured the win aboard his 4130 Motorsports-backed Yamaha YFZ450R.
Londerville’s 3-1 moto finishes scored him the overall win for the weekend.
“For qualifying, I got the fastest time even though it rained the entire night before,” said Londerville. “The track was muddy and sloppy, but that got me set up good for the first moto. I got a top ten start. With the muddy conditions, it was very hard to make passes, since the track was so one-lined. I made my way up to third and was all over second but never could secure a pass. For the second moto, the track was finally shaping up well. I got a great start coming out third and made a pass right away to move into second. I was on the rear bumper of the leader and was able to make a pass. I put in fast laps and rode smart to secure the win.”
The 10-round series heads to Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, Indiana, on May 13-14.
Lindquist remains eighth in the pro class standings following round four.
“I took seventh overall on the weekend, which still isn’t the goal, but we made some adjustments to the machine that are helping,” Lindquist said. “Those adjustments should propel me forward as the season goes on.”
Londerville climbed second in the pro-am class standings and is now third in the pro sport class.
“We are definitely going in the right direction,” Londerville said. “I’m excited and ready for the next race. I’m going to work on my starts and just trying to be consistent.”
