Round five of the AMA Pro Motocross championship at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville, Tennessee, saw Team Honda HRC’s Cole Seely put on an impressive performance en route to fourth overall, equaling his best overall result in the 450MX class.

In moto one, Seely grabbed the holeshot aboard his CRF450R but dropped back to fourth a few turns later. The Californian spent the remainder of the opening lap charging forward, retaking the lead and opening up a multi-second gap on the competition. Seely maintained that spot until the halfway point, when he engaged in a game of cat-and-mouse with a pair of challengers. He held tough initially but ultimately fell back to third, which is where he finished, matching his career-best 450MX moto result. During moto two, Seely scored a top-five start and quickly moved into fourth. He relinquished one position on lap nine but was still in contention for the final podium spot until giving up one more position with two laps remaining and finishing sixth.
