Suzuki: Houston

April 15, 2010 2:40pm
Houston, TX- Things looked bleak for Suzuki’s Troy Adams with one lap to go in the 250 Last Chance Qualifier, he was in fourth and had no chance to make the top two and therefore, get into the main event on the night.

Then some sort of divine intervention happened and the riders in second and third crashed into each other and Adams got a gift in the form of the twentieth gate pick on the line for the 15-lap main. It was an amazing gift and one that Adams took full advantage of.

Once the gate dropped for the main, Troy showed that he deserved to be there as he rode hard to a well deserved and hard fought tenth place, even with a pretty hard crash along the way. This placing allowed Adams to stay inside the top ten in the 250 east series and be one of the top riders in the series.

Team youngster Kyle Keylon continued to pick up the pace with a some fast practice qualifying times and a 5th place in his heat race.  Kyle was on his way to a top 10 finish, before falling with 5 laps to go and finishing off the main event in 13th. 

Jason Thomas one of the longest running privateers in the series had one of his best nights of the series.  He put his Suzuki in 10th place early on and moved to 9th where he stayed for half the race untill going down in one of the tough rhythm sections.  JT remounted and charged back to 15th and upon taking the white flag, had found himself right on the tails of 12th, 13th & 14th.  However, disaster stuck over the finish line double jump when JT's 450 suffered a mechanical, causing him to crash hard.  The stocky little guy was ok from the crash, but none the less a little bruised up. JT$ ended up with an 18th place finish & remains inside the top twenty in the 450 series and looks to rebound this weekend in St Louis. and
