4130 Motorsports’ Max Lindquist Tallies Another Seventh Place Finish
SEWARD, Pa. – Riders endured heavy rain and extremely challenging track conditions for the majority of the weekend at Pleasure Valley Raceway for the eighth round of the ATV Motocross National Championship Series (ATVMX), an AMA National Championship. Jayden Londerville returned to the pro sport podium with 3-4 results. As conditions worsened over the weekend in Seward, Pennsylvania, the decision was made by race officials to cancel pro-am competition on Sunday, citing the track as impassable.
4130 Motorsports teammate Max Lindquist achieved his best moto finish of the year despite treacherous conditions. While the first pro class moto only resulted in 11th for Lindquist, he captured fourth in the second pro class moto. Once again earning him seventh overall for the weekend.

Lindquist has put in a consistent season and was able to keep the momentum rolling in Pennsylvania. However, the weather presented an incredible challenge when it came time for the pro class motos. The spray of mud out of the gate was unreal, but Lindquist managed to grab a spot inside of the top 10. Within a few laps, he had worked his way into seventh. Just over the halfway point, he shifted into sixth. Unfortunately, machines were not faring well in the downpour. Soon, Lindquist’s Yamaha shut off. After a few minutes of tinkering, he was able to get it running again and finish out the moto. He salvaged 11th.
Moto 2 offered up another muddy mess. It truly became a race of survival – both man and machine. He pulled a great start, positioning himself in fourth. He rode a strong pace, picking strategic lines on the incredibly slippery track lap after lap. When the checkered flag flew, he collected his best moto finish of the year.
Lindquist’s 11-4 results allowed him to seventh overall yet again this season.
“Crazy weekend in Pennsylvania to say the least,” said Lindquist. “I was battling for a top-five position in the first moto until heavy rain would cause my machine to shut off. Getting it back running minutes later, I was able to finish. Moto two was another mud moto. I executed a good start and rode to a fourth-place finish.”

Londerville blasted out of the gate aboard his Yamaha YFZ450R in Heat 1, quickly settling into fourth. Within a lap, he had advanced to third. He continued to pursue the second-place rider, but was unable to get around him before the checkers flew.
Londerville set himself up on the outside gate for the second moto as heavy rain began to fall. He pulled another great start, catapulting him into third off of the line. A slight mistake dropped him to fourth, but the 18-year-old continued to push his pace. Ultimately, he would finish in the fourth-place spot until the end of the five-lap race.
With 3-4 finishes, Londerville secured third overall at Pleasure Valley Raceway.
“It was a wild weekend for sure,” said Londerville. “In my first moto, I worked my way up to third. I fought up to second but couldn’t make a pass on him. In the second moto, it started to downpour rain and it was a complete mud race. We gambled with taking the way outside gate, and it paid off. I got third off of the start but ended up making a mistake and losing my front brake, which caused me to drop to fourth. I fought back up and almost made a last lap pass for third. I got third overall on the weekend, so I’m pretty pumped with that.”
After torrential rain over the weekend made the track impassable for Sunday’s competition, the Pro-Am class and amateur classes scheduled to run that day were canceled.
Two rounds remain this season. The ninth round will be held in Nashport, Ohio, at Briarcliff MX on July 22-23.
Lindquist sits seventh in the standings, with consistency being key in the pro class.
“I was happy to break inside the top five in moto two,” Lindquist said. “I’m looking to keep building on that finish to end the season on a high note.”
Londerville remains third in the pro sport class, while points remain unchanged in the pro-am class.
“It was a good weekend,” Londerville said. ”We’ve got a few weeks to practice in between rounds and get some stuff figured out.”
