And hats off to Mike Alessi, who overcame a week in Roger DeCoster’s doghouse after getting called on the carpet after Hangtown’s two bad starts left him floundering on what should have been one of his best tracks. Alessi did his homework all right, though he did say in the press conference that he has no idea as to how to find more speed to beat #7. (And props to Jeff Alessi, who came through as top privateer in Texas with some help from the Moto XXX Hooters crew; the brothers’ Alessi went 2-7 in the second moto to edge the brothers Hahn, as Tommy and Wilbur were a solid 5-6 in the second Lites moto).
Two guys who quietly deserve a nod are Monster Energy/Kawasaki’s Tim Ferry, who charged from 36th to 7th in the first moto to earn the RC Hard Charger award for his determination, then followed it up with another solid charge in the second moto, and the veteran Robbie Reynard, who came down with his family from Oklahoma and rode to a solid 13th overall with 16-10 moto finishes. Not bad for an old pro like RR!
