Millville, MN - After a one weekend break the Division 7/Star Racing/Yamaha team was at full capacity for the first time in recent months. Made up of #41 Matt Lemoine, #43 Broc Tickle, #159 Darryn Durham, a mended #164 Michael Hall, and the Brazilian rookie #455 Lucas Moraes. all five riders returned to action for the seventh round of the AMA MX National Series at the Spring Creek Motocross Park.
First up was Tickle, who had another strong performance which was much needed. Tickle set himself up well in moto one by grabbing a 7th place start, allowing him to break away. From there, he rode aggressively in the early laps taking himself up to 5th. Tickle stayed strong well into the race, closing in on the fourth place rider, but he came up a little short which lead to his eventual finishing spot of 5th. Another start of 7th in moto two, Tickle stayed persistent climbing to 6th by lap four. Giving the Division 7 backed rider a stellar overall score of 5th.
Next in line, Lemoine had really strong rides going in both motos. In moto one, Lemoine had a super impressive go of things where he stated14th, and charged until the end where came away in 10th. Moto two saw him hold down 9th throughout the entire race.
Also having one good moto, one bad moto on the weekend was Durham and Hall. Hall made his comeback known by holding down 10th for most of moto one before settling for 12th. Durham started his first moto in 16th, feeling good Durham forged to 10th. After pummeling himself into the ground on the eleventh lap of the moto, Durham rode back to the 15th position. Moto two was pretty solid for Durham, starting upfront in 6th, the 19 year old hung tough and rallied to 4th. Successfully having his breakthrough ride, Durham convincingly held 4th nearly the entire time. Only falling back one spot, Durham pushed hard finding his way to an awesome 5th place finish. Unfortunately Hall started 25th, raced his way into 14th, and then ended up pulling out of the moto in its closing laps when the hand that just healed weakened.
Moto 1 Moto 2 = Overall Finish
Broc Tickle 5th 6th = 5th
Matt Lemoine 10th 9th = 8th
Darryn Durham 15th 5th = 9th
