2017 Season Outlook:

Nicoletti inked a full-time ride on the newly-formed JGRMX 250SX Class team, which made its debut in 2017. The veteran rider, who signed with JGRMX in 2014 as a fill-in rider, had not raced in the 250SX Class since 2012 and showed up to round 1 in Anaheim and struggled at the first round in Anaheim to a 17th place finish. Nicoletti earned his first top 10 of the season the following weekend at round 2 in San Diego, and grabbed two more top-10s before an injury before round 6 in Arlington sidelined him for the rest of the season.
