Fun Center Suzuki Salt Lake City Race Report

Team Fun Center Suzuki finished out the West Coast Supercross Series with two riders in the main event and the Racer X gas card. Due to the weather there was only one practice. Cole Seely was 15th, Brady Sheren 28th and Michael Lapaglia 34th.

Sheren and Lapaglia were in heat one. They both suffered from a poor start and had to work there way forward. By the end of the six lap race Lapaglia had worked his way up to tenth just missing the final qualifying position. Sheren finished fourteenth.

Seely lined up on the inside for heat two where he got a top ten start and went on to finish fifth.

Sheren and Lapaglia lined up for the LCQ and came around the first turn in the top two spots. The two traded positions for the first two laps with Sheren eventually taking the lead and the win. Lapaglia struggled with the whoops and was passed on the last lap just missing the final transfer position again. On the podium he received the Racer X gas card and said “I want to thank Fun Center Suzuki and my whole team for all there hard work this year. It has been a really tuff year for me and I have not gotten the results I wanted.”

In the main event Seely and Sheren both struggled off the start. On lap two, Seely had worked his way up to fourteenth only to be taken out by another rider before the finish line. He got up and went on to finish sixteenth and eighteenth overall for his rookie season. “I had a really up and down season this year,” stated Seely. “I learned a lot and I know what I need to do next year to be better prepared.” Sheren was riding a solid race until lap seven when he was going through the whoop section and jammed his wrist. He was unable to continue and ended up nineteenth.

Fun Center Suzuki’s next race is this coming weekend in Las Vegas for the East West Shootout.
