In the AMA Supercross Series, we are seeing the most competitive field in history. Just transfering to the heat races from timed qualifying is an accomplishment. We are proud that Race Tech has put nearly a half dozen riders into the evening program at every Supercross event this season. Ben Lamay and Cody Gilmore have made every night show, while Michael Horban has also transferred each time since joining the Race Tech team at round 2. Preston Mull joined the trio of Race Tech backed 450cc riders in Atlanta for the first time in the premier class and also qualified.
Race Tech Espana rider Alvaro Lozana Rico took home the MX1 class win at the opening round of the Motocross Nationals in Spain over the weekend. With 2-1 moto finishes, Alvaro took the overall and is tied for the points lead heading to the second round of the championship.
Hunter Yoder continued to impress at the Gold Cup series with a four moto sweep at the final round of the championship in Pala, California. Yoder's sweep on the weekend helped him earn both the 50cc 7-8 and Super PeeWee class championships on his Race Tech backed Cobra. The Dowell family was also in action at Pala Raceway. Joshua took home a top 10 in his 65cc 9-11 division while Jordan Dowell stood on the podium in the 50cc 4-6 class.
At the final round of the AMA Arenacross series, Izaih Clark won the 65cc division during Saturday night's program. Tayler Grall recovered from a crash to charge back inside the top 10. Nolan Dickinson riding for Race Tech Center, 4-PR Performance finished inside the top 5 in the 65cc division. Vaughn Mays piloted his Race Tech backed ride to a solid finish in the AX Lites Main Event.
On Sunday, Izaih Clark backed up his Saturday night win by taking home both the 65cc 10-11 and 85cc 7-11 class wins. Tayler Grall followed Izaih across the line in second in both classes on Sunday with 4-PR Performance/Race Tech rider Nolan Dickinson not far behind at the front of the pack in both classes. Clark and Grall's 1-2 effort in both classes on Sunday also finished them up first and second in the North Region Championship for both classes. Dickinson was able to finish top 5 in the Championship in the 65cc and 85cc classes as well.
Race Tech supported Matt Grall took the win in the 30+ class on Sunday wrapping up the championship in the North Region. Gage Steburg missed the final round of the series, but still finished in the top 3 of the North Region Championship in the 65cc 7-9 class.
