The AMA Lucas Oil Motocross Championship made stop number seven this past weekend in Millville, Minnesota at Spring Creek MX Park. Track and weather conditions were perfect for a great day of racing for Fly Racing riders and the big news of the weekend was the 2-3 finishes for Fly team riders Andrew Short and Kyle Regal in the 450 class.
450 Class Highlights
Fly Riders Andrew Short, Weston Peick, Ben Evans, Kyle Regal, Josh Clark, Terren O’Dell and Aden De Jager all qualified for Motos. In Moto one it was Honda Red Bull Racing’s Andrew Short leading the way for Fly Racing, riding his way to a third place finish followed by Kyle Regal and Ben Evans not far behind in 8th and 20th.
In Moto two Andrew Short once again came out the gate strong with the holeshot followed by Kyle Regal a few positions back. With Short in the early lead, Regal would charge to the front only to suffer a crash and drop back a few positions. In a gutsy and impressive move, Regal would rebound from his crash and once again work his way to the front of the pack for a strong second place finish! Andrew Short finished close behind in third, with both riders taking a place on the overall podium. Weston Peick and Ben Evans also had great motos, finishing 14th and 15th, followed by Aden De Jager in 20th.
