The world famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway was the site of the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix this past weekend. Coming off DNF’s at the 2 previous rounds, Bel-Ray backed Tech3 racing star Bradley Smith was hoping to turn his bad luck around in Indy. He did just that by qualifying 4th fastest in timed qualifying. Smith rocketed to the front of the pack as the race started and led the field into the first turn. Smith rode a fantastic race and eventually finished in 4th place just off the podium. His fine ride moved him up to 6th place in the series standings. Teammate Mike DiMeglio has been struggling all season long trying to find top results, but could only manage a 27th place finish. The next event for the team will be this weekend in Misano, Italy.
Hurricane Irene brought rain and winds to the MX338 circuit in Southwick, MA this past weekend. TwoTwo Motorsports / Bel-Ray Racing Chad Reed suffered his worst results of the season as he failed to finish either moto after setting the second fastest time of the day in morning qualifying. Despite not scoring any points at all, Reed is still 3rd place in the series point’s standings with 2 rounds left. Bel-Ray Elite racers also performed quite well in the awful conditions.
