Minor Injuries in Indy For Dodge Motorsports/H&H

March 15, 2011 9:30am
Carlsbad, CADodge Motorsports/Hart & Huntington riders Chris Blose and Ivan Tedesco both experienced an off night at Round 10 of AMA/FIM Supercross at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana to finish 18th and 19th respectively.

In qualifying, the Hart & Huntington teammates were paired together in the stacked heat race #2 with the likes of James Stewart, Trey Canard, Justin Brayton and Ryan Dungey.  Both Tedesco and Blose successfully transferred into the main event with Tedesco finishing 5th and Blose finishing 8th.

Tedesco started the main event strong and just missed the holeshot, charging 3rd out of the gate behind Ryan Villopoto and Chad Reed.  Tedesco continued to challenge near the front of the pack and put down competitive lap times until a crash on lap seven.  Blose started in 17th out of the gate, reinjuring his ankle and ultimately finished in 18th position.

“I felt really good all weekend and my starts were good for the first time in a long time. I got up front in the main event and was doing good and on lap seven I crashed before the finish line jump and jammed my wrist. I’m not sure what happened because it happened so fast and I was on the ground before I knew it,” said Tedesco. Ivan currently sits 11th in points.

“In the heat race I was feeling pretty good. Coming off my injury in Daytona I was just trying to make the main event and to do good there. I got a bad start in the main and kept trying to make something happen. I got a bit impatient and I high-sided trying to make a pass and I reinjured my ankle. I was able to finish the race in 18th to collect a couple points,” said Blose. Chris currently sits 15th in points.

The Dodge Motorsports/Hart and Huntington team was at Dreyer Motorsports on Friday prior to the event for a dealer signing and had 3,200 fans in attendance. The team heads to Jacksonville, Florida next weekend for round 11 of Supercross racing and will be at Jacksonville Powersports on Friday, March 18th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
