Deegan Takes Criticism Over Run-In With Teammate

The 10th round of Monster Energy AMA Supercross got off to a chaotic start last Saturday night when rookie Haiden Deegan and veteran Jordon Smith banged bars during the opening 250SX East heat race. He raced up the outside of Deegan and essentially overtook him by the end of the section. However, Deegan took Smith high as they exited the whoops, pushing the No. “I think [Smith’s] like fifth in points, so he’s a little out of it. I want to win just as much as everybody else, whether it’s a heat race or a main,” Deegan said. As the battle was between teammates, taking place in a heat race where points were not at stake, the aggression was arguably uncalled for. “That was definitely not how we wanted the night to go,” Smith said.
