 2020 Season Recap

Aaron Plessinger was able to complete his first full 450SX season in 2020 after a disappointing injury in 2019 cut his rookie season short. Plessinger put together an impressive, seven top 10 finishes in his sophomore 450SX season that placed him 11th in the season-ending standings. After a dominating 250SX career, the Star Racing Yamaha team has high hopes for Plessinger in Supercross’s premier 450SX Class.

 2021 Outlook

Plessinger suffered a dislocated wrist in July while preparing for the 2020 Outdoor Motocross season, which unfortunately kept him off the bike all summer. After a successful surgery immediately following the injury, Plessinger was able to return to riding in November and expects to be fully prepared for his third season for 450SX racing.
