MotoConcepts Racing Daytona Race Report

Spokane, Wash. – MotoConcepts Racing (MCRMX) is on their way to the Big Easy after enjoying a successful stop at Daytona Bike Week.  Once again MCRMX placed two riders in the 450 main in Tyler Bowers and Ben Coisy.  MCRMX also had 250 East rookie Vince Friese make the main event.

“Overall we had a good run in Daytona,” stated team manager Steve Lamson.  “Tyler and Vince are showing a lot of promise and Ben has put himself in position to win the Privateer of the Year Award.” 

Kentucky native Bowers finished 6th in heat race number two, advancing to the main.  The 17-year-old was able to escape the first corner pile up and rode in the top ten for the majority of the main event, where he finished 14th overall.  Since joining MCRMX, Bowers has found a home in the main event, and is now 27th overall in points.

In heart race number one, Coisy rode to a 8th place finish, advancing to the main.  His start in the main was not as fortunate as he was collected in the first corner crash.  After gathering himself, the 5-time French Supercross Champion, was able to ride to a 17th place finish.  Ben is now 13th overall in points, one spot behind newly acquired teammate, Heath Voss

On the 250 side, 18-year-old Vince Friese finished 7th in heat race number two.  Friese rode in the top ten as well for the majority of the main event before eventually settling for a 14th place finish.  Friese has now moved up to 14th overall in points for the 250 East class.

MCRMX would also like to congratulate MotoConcepts sponsored and former National Champion, Joe Kopp, on his short track victory in Daytona.  Kopp has now won the “Grand Slam” with victories in all four disciplines, short track, TT, half mile, and mile.  Only a handful of riders have accomplished this feat in the history of flat track.  Kopp joins a group that includes legends, Kenny Roberts, Chris Carr, Doug Chandler, Randy Goss, Bubba Shobert, and Ricky Graham.  Congratulations Smokin’ Joe!
