In front of a sold out crowd at the at the Ervin J Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio Team Spinechillers – Storm Lake Honda extended their podium streak to 3 for 3 for the 2009 season.
The single night event which is the closest race for the team from Chillicothe Ohio greeted family, friends and fans to an exciting night of qualifying and racing action.
After a practice crash which resulted in team member Willy Browning being thrown over the handlebars, The WB got himself and his quickly repaired Suzuki City RMZ 250 into the night program. Bar banging action and moving himself from a mid-pack start in the Heat race, Willy was well positioned for the Lites main event. After another rough start and two crashes, Willy miraculously finished in second place in the Lites class continuing the team’s podium streak and retaining the points lead. In the post race podium interview, Willy commented “I’m just happy to be up here after the day that I have been having”. “The track is really challenging and it’s great to get out of here with a second and the lead in the points”.
In the Arenacross class, Spinechillers Racing had all three riders well positioned in the main event. Zach Ames struggled after a crash in Baltimore, but soldiered on to finish in 12’Th place for the night. Willy Browning after having to go to the LCQ from a heat race crash finished the night in 9’Th to remain in 9’th position in overall Arenacross class points. Nathan Skaggs successfully navigated a first turn log-jam to get off to a third place start in the Main. After holding off an all out assault from the fourth place rider, Skaggs eventually was overtaken, but held on to finish in 5’Th place for the evening. Dayton’s finish kept Skaggs in points contention for the championship going in to round four.
Team Manager Dallas Avery received the MMI Top Tech award for overcoming the qualifying mayhem and supporting three riders in the Arenacross class main event. Avery commented “I’m totally at a loss for words”. “We just do whatever it takes to make the main event each night and to support the team and our sponsors”. “I really appreciate MMI’s support of the series and recognition of our efforts”.
