Greensboro, North Carolina, January 30, 2007 - Jim Neese won both Arenacross Lites races this past weekend and won Friday’s Arenacross Main Event on his Carolina Xpress Suzuki in Louisville, KY. In Saturday’s Toyota AMA Arenacross Main, Jim was running second for most of race but was passed in the final turn and finished third.
“This weekend was the best so far. The season started off a bit slow, partly because I was distracted with all the details associated with starting a new team, but things seem to be going much smoother now. The speed is there and the results show it. The Suzuki’s are running great, especially the new RMZ250f,” commented Jim Neese.
The Carolina Xpress Suzuki Team currently leads two of the Arenacross Lites regions. Jim Neese is leading the East region and Jim Chester leading in the South region.
