Chase Sexton has officially joined forces with KTM to compete in the AMA Supercross Championship, AMA Pro Motocross Championship, and the SMX Finals Series.

The 24-year-old will also adopt the single-digit career number, four, symbolising the next phase of his professional career.

Before fully immersing himself in this new partnership with KTM, Sexton, hailing from Illinois, will proudly carry the No. one plate as he defends his 450SX title. He is already hard at work, and eager to kickstart his collaboration with KTM at the highest level.

Sexton’s remarkable journey includes securing his first premier class Supercross Championship earlier this year, with an impressive tally of six Main Event victories. Despite missing multiple rounds in the first half of the outdoor season, he secured a respectable fourth position in the final 450MX standings.

Following the inaugural SMX post-season, Sexton claimed third place overall in the demanding 31-round schedule. He achieved a significant victory at the hybrid-style Charlotte event, showcasing his prowess as a formidable contender in various racing disciplines.

Expressing his enthusiasm for joining the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing organization, Chase Sexton praised the team’s top-notch equipment and unwavering commitment to victory. He looks forward to a bright future with the team and is eager to get to work.

They are diligently working to prepare a robust race package for both Chase and the team to build upon. Harrison believes they can provide the comprehensive factory support that Sexton deserves and expects him to elevate the team’s performance further.

Roger De Coster, Director of Motorsports, North America, concluded by highlighting Chase Sexton’s impressive progress and professionalism, both on and off the track. The entire U.S. team is thrilled about the opportunity to collaborate with Sexton in the coming years. Their shared brand values create excitement about potential future achievements together.

The competitive debut of Chase Sexton with KTM is set to take place at Round 1 of the 2024 AMA Supercross Championship in Anaheim, California, on Saturday, January 6.
