2022 Season Recap: 2022 was Plessinger’s first year aboard the KTM machine and overall, it was a very strong year for the Ohio native. Plessinger came out swinging in Supercross season with 9th, 2nd, and 6th place finishes in the first three rounds. Unfortunately, Plessinger crashed at Round 4 and suffered a wrist injury that affected the rest of his season and caused him to miss some races. In the Pro Motocross season this past summer, Plessinger finished 7th overall in the 450 Class standings with two podiums and eight top-10 finishes.

 

2023 Outlook: As Plessinger enters his second season aboard the KTM, expectations remain high coming off a strong Pro Motocross season. The former Western Regional 250SX Class champion has already proven his ability to succeed on the Supercross track and leaves no doubt that he has the ability to contend for more podiums in 2023.
